Chicago sighting of TRTW!!!
I was at my favorite bar tonight...and suddenly, on the Juke Box, "Terminally Ambivalent of You" came on. it was weird because as the intro started, I was like "wait...this sounds really familiar." I was grinning from ear to ear for the rest of the night! It ead the very first time I've heard y'all State Side. I was so proud!

Way to go CK! I love you guys!!!

HELLO VALENTINE!
something about north...tends to make one lost.
my first reaction was "SWEET!". but i always have mixed emotions when a song i love turns up on a commercial. so in the end it went "SWEET! wait..but...NO..but okay, okay...they will make some money off of it..i hope. and everyone needs an income..so..it is good..yea...good...SWEET!" the circle of sweet. it's sort of like the circle of life..but with less stage production and over the top music.

cheers,

Are you in NY in the near future. Where's the best place to get a copy of your first record?

Hope your well give my regards to Dave, and Jacque.

I know what exactly what you mean but that's how we stay alive and keep going I'm afraid until the dawning of the age of aquarius and cult bands sell more albums - and actually, we won't do anything we don't think is cool whatever the price- and V thought that this one was..

clerkenwell kid said...

Mr Ernie

It's a pleasure to hear from you sir and I will be in your august city this very October -it will be an honour to see you if you're around.

Davide is in Paris now tho'

nell said...

kid,

to help things along i have been buying up everything on the tuesday weld website. which is not really like me. you guys have turned me into a consumer whore...but a very happy consumer whore. bless your little hearts.
will you be playing a gig in nyc in october? if so...it might be what nudges us into adventuring that direction.

cheers,
nell

Oh my God, Stephn, that video is amazing! Needless to say I love Nip/Tuck. Funny how the meaning of that song changed so much when put into the context of Nip/Tuck...

nell said...

hey kid!
okay...me..AGAIN...sorry. i talked to (well...emailed) the husband and if your playing new york we WILL be there. so any info would be helpful. dates, places, names of accomplices.
also...v was right..it was cool. that valentine...he must have a BIG old brain. bet he tips right over from the weight of it.

cheers,

nell said...

GODFUCKITYDAMNIT!!!!! oh' sorry, that was loud and blasphemous. i will continue to be patient...in my own way...which means hardly at all. nip and tuck tour..hmmm...do you think that would include things like the tit and ass tent?

Stephen,
after I saw that promo I went browsing through some Nip/Tuck message boards and was happy to see that I think you've gained yourselves new fans^^ I even have a friend who absolutely fell in love with The Ugly And The Beautiful after seeing the promo.

It is a beautiful song. And you guys deserve every bit of publicity.

clerkenwell kid said...

thanks for that stella

and you have seen the original ugly and the beautiful video right?

Stella Polaris said...

I have, and I love it. You should release more music videos. I wouldn't mind seeing one for Easter Parade or Heaven Can't Wait.

nell said...

stella,

i like the way you think. clever little monkey. a video for either of those would be grand.
and stephen...i adore that little giggle as you run towards the stage. makes me smile every time.

cheers,
nell

clerkenwell kid said...

stella

we did that video for heaven can't wait with the sample of ethel merman swimming in the oyster shell - it was lovely but i think we would never get clearance for it - so we just show it live

easter parade? gosh there's a thought

nell said...

which was the original ugly and the beautiful video? tiny lipsticked stephen with pancake makeup jacques or pretty brunette lady in tub?

cheers,
nell
