So i bought the jap import cd for the bonus tracks. You're all (?) familiar with Found myself looking for god, so i wont describe that one.

Apparently is a great track : bowie esque track that sounds weak at first, but that is one fine track after five listens. It sounds like a track out of This is Hardcore, among the softer tracks of that record, kinda like a rougher A Little Soul or a softer I'm a Man. Somehwere between those two.

Once again, i think Jarvis put his best tracks on bsides (those two + the upcoming Girls like it too)

That would be great indeed, but I don't think it's gonna happen.

I would love to hear 'I found myself looking for G-d'. Since I bought the single I have only found myself looking for a record player :D

i think the "commercially available" stuff is considered taboo around here.  this is a shade of black to me.  i can't find the damn song anywhere and i'm loaded....

Just heard "...looking for god" for the first time and i just can't understand why he wants to sound like a oasis? What's the point with that?! It was really not worth searching for it if I'd just had to put on a random oasis-song. Uuuuuuuuuuuh i can almost hear Liam's voice singing it.....
If Angela was bad i think this one is nearly as poor, or maybe bad as it (maybe the lyrics are good, I'd might look it up later) i' haven't really made my mind up yet.
I can understand if Jarvis wanted to do something else and apparently "deep" has become something negative to him, but must boring simple "brainless rock" be the opposite?
Isn't there enough of that sort of music all ready?
Thank god that the changes of doing another "rock" album is quite small!
I'm going to listen to some b-sides from the His 'n' hers-era instead, as some kind of comfort.

I'm hoping that he has the rock out of his system now and he can finally deliver the quiet Donovan-inspired album he's been hinting at since 1999.

Ah, Jarvis whispering over gently plucked sitars and tambourines. That's the album I want to hear! (Though he'd probably have to take up drugs again to do it right)

Well it's a bit sad if he's only capable to do good music when he's high, but dam it! some of he's best songs is form that period..but at the same time it's feels so wrong to say "Hey Jarv, your music was so much better whilst you where doing drugs so please take some more!"
Anyway it's quite hilarious to think that he actually was sober during the recording of FC! It would make so much more scene if he wasn't!
Maybe when he realizes what FC really sounds like(and how big the suffer for his fans has been) he will get some kind of wake up call and then maybe want to make up for it.

Aparently will almost certainly be a b-side on the next single which we're led to believe is Further Complications.

Girls Like It Too and The Night They Let Me Out Of The Home both need to get a release too. And I can't imagine there being a third single so I'm wondering if the next release will actually be a double A-side or an EP. Then again he could spread out these three songs over two vinyl and one cd formats. I hope not though, as it's a right bitch having songs only released on vinyl. There should at least be one of those 'digital codes' included enabling the owner to download the song for free.

As for I Found Myself Looking For God, I think he was going for more of a Velvets than later-Oasis sound. I've only heard it twice or three times since buying the single as I rarely get to use a record player but I quite like the loose experimental sound to it. It sounds like it came from the band jamming and was written quite quickly, both words and music. Not in a bad way. Need to listen to it more though. If Apparently is only available on vinyl too when it appears I think I might just buy the Japanese version of the album on cd.

Andy, from one listening when played at Manchester, the riff on the song reminded me of Tonite which put me off a bit. Do they sound similar?
I remember the chorus being quite good though. Surprisingly, it never appeared on youtube.

Thanks for that one.

it's got that Beatles "Rain" bass running through it. actually, the overall production is pretty reminiscent of 1968 Beatles/Lennon efforts. the harmonies at the end are a bit weak. and the distortion on the final note is very Velvets '68 as well.

i thought it sounded horrible for the first 30 seconds, but it found it's footing. i'm glad it's not about doing a 20 year old...

Thanks for that Andy and TLGOTT, and don't worry if Apparantly becomes commercially available I'll still buy it for sure, as I'm certain most others on here would do.

On first listen I really like Apparantly. Yet another hidden gem.

Cheers our kid. Just listened once - nice to hear a bit of piano. After his tentative ivory-tinkling steps on the first album, I was disappointed that there's feck-all of it on the new record. Even a bit of violin in the chorus!

Musically at times it does indeed sound a bit Hardcore-era; Can I Have My Balls Back Please maybe. He does seem to be cultivating a slightly corny penchant for puns/word association lately - in Slush ''I know I don't stand a snowball in hell's chance'' is one slushy metaphor too far. Here there's ''sheepishly admit I tried to pull the wool over your eyes''.
Having said that ''I'll hold your hand but at arm's length'' is clever.

Girls Like It Too is still the behemoth which we await.

Finally! I'm so glad that Jarvis voice doesn't drown in some horrible saxophone-rock-whatever sound. And it sounds like someone rehearsed at least one time before they recorded it! This is quite good-and it's growing! It feels really good to have something nice to say about his songs it hasn't been that way for a while.Would i pay for this one? off course. I can understand why "Apparently" isn't on the album because then it would even more obvious that some songs (i don't think i need to mention them) is crappy, it doesn't really fit in. Well, well i would prefer a messy album instead of an album a few ups but mainly downs.

"Apparently" is excellent. Love it! Easily better than any of Jarvis' "rock" songs. Sounds like a mixture between This-Is-Hardcore-Pulp and late Beatles.

With every new non album track it becomes more weird that he tried to make a late 70s garage rock concept album instead of just choosing the best twelve songs. confuse

Btw, any news about that mysterious september single/ep aka "Girls Like it too"? Looking forward to Jarvis' song(s) for Wes Anderson's "Fantastic Mr Fox", too. The trailer looks marvelous!

I can see why 'apparently' wasnt on the album - it would have put most of the other songs to shame!
