A-Z: The Bluetones (part 4)

The Bluetones – The Bluetones (album)
The most recent Bluetones album, released just last month. This is just the 2nd time I’ve listened to it actually. Like Luxembourg tis a pretty short album!
‘Baby, Back Up’ – “I thought you were cool, but you are just weird”. Hee hee. This was one of my instant favourites the last time I listened to this album.
‘Hope And Jump’ – This is rather gorgeous. Great lyrics too.
‘Head On A Spike’ – This is going to be the next single isn’t it? Great song. I don’t really know how to describe these songs though – I’m not familiar enough with them yet.
‘The King Of Outer Space’ – This was another instant fave – mostly because of the lyrics I think. And the title!
‘The Last Song But One’ – Love this one too. Plus again you’ve gotta love the title!
‘Wasn’t I Right About You?’ – I think a lot of the brilliance of this album is in the lyrics. I reckon they’re all going to be growers too.

The Bluetones – Slight Return (single)
I don’t have that many early Bluetones singles really – the ones I have are slightly random as are just ones I’ve found cheaply at record fairs and stuff.

The Bluetones – If (single promo)

The Bluetones – Sleazy Bed Track (single)
How many songs do the Bluetones have with the word ‘blue’ in the title?!? I may have to count them…Blue, Bluetonic, The Bluetones Big Score, Blue Shadows, Are You Blue Or Are You Blind?, Code Blue…so, 6 then! Unless I also count Tone Blooze! He he. Is 6 more than Ooberman? Hmm, yeah, they just have 4. Why am I counting these things?

The Bluetones – Keep The Home Fires Burning (single promo)
Aha, this is the point at which I started buying the singles as they were released. Although this promo I bought later!

The Bluetones – Keep The Home Fires Burning (single) CD1
Ok, I’ve listened to this song 3 times in a row now…but it still sounds great! 🙂
‘Armageddon (Outta Here) Featuring Matt Lucas’ – My favourite bit of this track is the Bagpuss bit! He he. Love Bagpuss. And yes The Bluetones are friends with Matt Lucas. Infact Mark Morriss has been on Little Britain! It was in series 1 – I think it might be the last ep in series 1, but I’m not sure. He’s round the table with the Prime Minister (ah yes, Anthony Head 😀 ). He doesn’t say anything, he just gets up and leaves the room, but I was like ‘OMG it’s Mark Morriss!!’ 😀 He he.
