pretty quiet here.. havent been able to get online much lately but seeing alot of posts on the CO facebook page.. for those who dont peruse the site much.. they've (the band - not sure who exactly) been posting lots of great tidbits of info on Biggest Bluest since its was the 10th anniversary this past Saturday (i think).. like this one..

Quote :
Some of you have been asking about the cover of Biggest Blust Hi Fi. Its Cover Star is Fiona, she's a friend of the band. The Picture was taken in Tracyanne's room. The poster on the wall is of Catherine Denueve

but interestingly if ya read the comments section, there's this quote

Quote :
There was a song in the very early days called Catherine Denueve, but it never made it to recording.

i am such a fanboy, that i truly would love to hear that tune! i'm sure in the bands mind, its not up to par but i'm willing to bet its still a better tune than what ya got on the radio this morning! anyhow, maybe someday we'll get ta hear some rough demos or early renditions of classics..

little more from their facebook...

You may be interested to know that we've been included on the new Dermot O'Leary Saturday Sessions Volume 2 CD thats just out (top ten album for the past two weeks) with our ccover of Rod Almighty's Some Guys Have All The Luck. Here is a wee acoustic version of it from backstage at Connect Festival in 2008. We recorded a version of it in the studio too for vinyl b-side action.
i absolutely loved the whole session that they did at connect - recording in a camper van.. was the first time i heard swans and was really excited - great version of the tune too done with a xylophone (spelling?).. worth a listen to any fan - i have it on a nice mix thats been quite worn out from overplay..
