I got lucky with a promo - it's out at the start of June I believe.

I really enjoyed it
This is brilliant. I'm so relieved.

This tour came to Australia for two theatre shows last week. It was ridiculously, heart-swellingly great.

People of a certain age will connect as deeply to this as I did to the records-over-the-phone sequence in The Virgin Suicides.

This. I don't think I've ever had so much *fun* at any type of show/concert ever.

I have just:
a) bought my tickets for the Duke of York's residency
b) Listened to Projected Passion Revue & thumped a wall in excitement harder than I intended at moment where Soon goes into Plan B.
Excited, knuckles hurt slightly, can't wait till April.

Going in I was a bit unsure about the new album & wondering whether my head was in the right place for latest part of the journey of K Rowland, but that was spectacular, an amazing evening. Really really fun, charming & the band are in great shape. Cathartic.
obvs highlight was This is What's She's Like, but Old – 'I'm getting old! What can I do? Absolutely nothing!' - was immense.

Sounds great, wish I could have gone to see them this time round. The show I saw them do in 2003 was maybe the best gig I've ever seen.

I saw them in 2003 too - I don't think it was quite up there with that, but haha yeah that's a v high bar, those shows were something else.

I went there not really knowing what to expect, just thought they would be doing a straight forward hits set I guess. I did not expect all the sketches and little details they added to those songs. It was funny, moving and just ridiculous at times. This Is What She's Like (like you said) was the big highlight for me but really the setlist was perfect. Love this band so much.

yeah, this has a lot of those same elements - drama, intensity, self-mockery - & carried some bits over - like the 'how can I stop the burning?' Kev/Pete-as-Policeman routine (which was amazing again).

Haha, yeah that bit was amazing! I really love the album and would have liked to see it performed live but sadly I'm travelling in New Zealand and think by the time I get back to the UK the tour might be over.

& something I only saw recently - 9 minute Too-Rye-Ay era rework of There, There My Dear, w/ press-ups. So good:
