Right, so, Go Away Birds EP4. That came out yesterday. It's electric. It's slightly crazy. It's amazing.

Secondly, Zoey Van Goey t-shirts. Because we don't have enough expensive t-shirts indicating our musical preferences already: http://shop.chemikal.co.uk/acatalog/ZVG_Merchandise.html

I didn't realise Micheal John was close friends with Catherine Ireton and the other member of the Go Away birds - feel so dumb after speaking to him just last week and not mentioning it. I did mention this forum and that was how I found out about ZVG. Told him it was a Canadadian bloke that had mentioned it on the forum which surprised kind him, I think for a second he thought it may have been a connection through their drummer/vocalist, until I mentioned that there were quite a few good bands had been mentioned on here, also mentioned how I'd found out about the Essex Green. He recalled they were from Brooklyn and he'd heard a bit of their stuff. Really really nice chatty bloke.

I downloaded ep4 - quite like it, what happened to the previous ep's ? Are they gone forever ?

I see the Go Away Birds are playing Edinburgh Roxy this Friday, so strongly thinking about going. Sorry to upset ya Paul, but the gig is only an hour away from me. Neutral I'll let her know your a big fan and ask her to join the forum so you PM each other Razz

I talked to Michael John over email when I found the Elephant album. Yeah he is a really nice guy. And actually, he IS the other member of GAB. It's just Michael John McCarthy and Catherine Ireton. He only sings on the first EP though. Stuart Murdoch does guest vocals on EP2. As far as I can tell though, they've done everything else by themselves. I've meant to ask about their recording process, but I don't want to come off as an annoying obsessive fan who emails him every day. Even though I am an annoying obsessive fan.

The other EP's are scattered around the interwebs if you dig around enough. However, I've got them if you'd like. Actually, already PM'd you.

LOL. That'd be great, I do have an amazingly huge crush on Catherine ya know. Yes please go and see them. They are quite easily my favorite musical thing on Earth. So give them my regards, Michael John might remember me as "the one from Iowa"

Sure, just make sure to get me a tracking number. 'Sign On Delivery' isn't necessary though, the Fedex guy can just leave her on my porch.

I'm gonna guess they are live songs? But I don't know. If nobody else does, I'll send MJM an email and ask.
