new Aliens?

Post by Shinesalight »

Maybe some new Aliens material on the way or live shows. They've set up a new Twitter account and there's been a bit of activity on their FB page. I do hope so as never got to see them live first time around.

NO FUCKING WAY!!!!! :shock: :D

Only yesterday I was watching a couple of live clips on Youtube and shed a tear. Such is the feeling of loss at their absence and the depth of my burning desire for this band to return.

Just pre-ordered the new Aliens live album "Live on the Moon". Out on the 29th Nov:

https://the-aliens.bandcamp.com/album/l ... the-moon-2

The blurb says "The Aliens state that this live album clears the way for release of new material." Nice one, can't wait!!

This is good news, to say the feckin' least. I've been listening to the FLACs regularly since they became available. It is great stuff.

Just tying up cover artwork at the moment and finalising the look of the vinyl then hopefully everything can get signed off pre-Xmas for an early Spring release. Fingers crossed it all works out.

Well, I'm pleased to say that the pre-order for the upcoming double vinyl LP of the Aliens' 'Live On the Moon' is now available to pre-order over on the Drone Rock Records website:-

https://dronerockrecords.com/shop/live-on-the-moon/

The records are due back from the pressing plant mid-to-late February and its a limited run of just 300 copies (with 60 of these going to Gordon/the band). I've just emailed my mailing-list subscribers (just over 900 customers) and it will be interesting to see how this album goes down with them as it is a bit different to what they are used to. Anyway, hopefully its of interest to a few of you on here.

Who ever would have thought that I'd be releasing an album by the Aliens :shock: 8) :D

Can you send mine to Mark Runcible's with his?
Not sure how to add this via cart.
Thanks,

I realize should have sent this via PM.
I am admittedly a little rusty using this message board.

It is, but i wonder is Neil ELBL cool with that for the forthcoming Live In Brixton album? :lol:

He seemed to take umbrage with people who bought his records having the temerity to look for a download too. Expected them to shell out for a digital copy on top of their vinyl purchase :roll:

I have no time whatsoever for Neil. Suffice to say that I would be happy to get the record if I bought it from him (which I will never, ever do again) and wouldn't expect a download to work. Thankfully, there will be none of that nonsense from Adam.

Not sure what to make of the new Aliens song:

On first listen ... hmmm... maybe it's a grower? Thought?

Woah - that's actually seriously impressive - the production is all over the place - :shock: .

I can hear samples of 'Electric Mainline', Prince - 'Come', and 'One More Time' by Daft Punk & Romanthony just after 3:00 8)

Yes it's well put together but it's shite unfortunately.

Sounds like an AFX fan attempting a mash-up of Daft Punk and EDM.

Yeah I’m not sure about that new tune but it certainly sound a better with the volume up. Had this from their manager today:-

“Hi Adam

The single is quite electronic which Gordon did deliberately. There's going to be a couple of eps before doing an album and band will be incorporated fairly soon to bring them back to more psych / folktronica standards.”

Would be great if they did come back as a band and did some live shows.

Not been on here for ages, then when I finally reappear I thought I'd missed out on that Aliens live LP!

But just a heads-up that what must be the last remaining copies are on the Aliens' Bandcamp page...

Must have a listen to the new song. Gordon Anderson can do no wrong in my eyes, so the reactions here are interesting to say the least 8)
