Hi All,
Just thought Id say hello. Hope thats ok. Paul put me onto this forum and I thought Id get in as soon as poss with the like minded. Anyway, about me. I live in Merseyside...oh god thats so boring, Im going to stop. :/
Been a Cam Obs fan since Biggest Bluest came out but Ive never seen them! Long story plus they dont seem to always come to Liverpool do they.
Anyway no doubt will chat over time
Bye for now

Hello Lee

How are you these days? I'm sure they do go to Liverpool but it always seems like ages between tours. Graeme, who set up this forum is from Liverpool. We met him when we went to see the band in Shrewsbury. Lovely bloke.

Orynthia! Hello Smile
Yay, I already know one person. Im fine thanks very much, well sorta.Beginning of year was a bugger but on the up now.
Yeah they have been to Liverpool but not last year or this. Shame cos Id deffo go & moan at Carey for writing all her answers down on paper rather than using speech...lol Wink If you have any sway with them get them to add a date.
Yeh I know of Graeme through my friend Paul who has been his mate for a while now. He has same opinion of him as you. Its what made me sign up.
How are things with you? Its been a while you must tell me your news.

I'm very glad you found the forum. Sorry to hear that the start of your year was not so good. I think you mentioned a few things were not good. Good to know you're on the up though. Carey does seem to be doing a bit more chat these days. Did you see the interview she did with Tracyanne about Michael Jackson?

We're still quite busy with family things going on. But we did manage to get up to Scotland to see the band play at Barrowlands. Great Show. Lots of celebrity spotting in the crowd. Most of Belle & Sebastian were there including Chris Geddes doing the merchandise!

We're also going to the Indie Tracks festival in July. Partly to see the band and partly to catch up with some friends. It's also very lovely in that part of England. Lakes and hills and good pub lunches.

Off to see Team Brick now. Not really my thing but Tom wants to go and it's only the other side of the park and it's in a church so that will be different.

Did you buy that electric scooter?

Thanks for all the welcomes everyone, Ill get into proper posting soon Im sure.
@orythnia I did see the interview with Paul Morley. Ive a lot of time for him & I think he understands what it is to be a pop fan, an Indie pop fan anyway. So for him to interview them was ace. Whether it was him that got them talking is another thing but Id give him the nod as its the most Ive heard TraceyAnne talk without embarrassment & the first time Id ever heard Carey talk. Is she part English? Youve seen them loads & all I want it one visit to Liverpool, maybe next year huh...lol.(& you can visit & we can say hello after all this time?) Indie tracks is spose to be ace isnt it? I think it was you who told me about it. Lots of good acts get to showcase themselves there dont they? Didnt get the electric scooter cos the guy pulled out of the deal after Id done all the this prep work. I was really disappointed & pissed off but I couldnt keep the energy up to stay mad. So I took the money that I got for the advance for a deal to licence How to Swim & Live in the Phillippines & instead of paying off a credit card I bought a petrol scooter instead! http://www.flickr.com/photos/littlename/3376700514/
Nice isnt it? Hehe...Still finding my feet (or wheels) but loving it very much.

@nick yeh he said that there were people from shacknet on here too. thanks for the welcome. Dont know all that side of things but fan of cam Obs so thought id sign up Smile

@graeme Thanks for the invite graeme. Pauls told me about your meet ups & at crash over the years too. I believe you were chatting to TraceyAnne recently. M ex-girlfriend met her and said she was dead nice & long time ago used to talk to Carey on Richard Hawleys site a little. Still its hardly touched by the stars is it, I mean one or two PMs..LOL Pathetic name dropping if there ever was any!

@tom thanks its nice of you to say . Im a little embarrassed but was feeling a little masochistic so just uploaded it. Got a twitter twibe chatting for an hour or so. haha..

lee,i have spoken to tracyanne in the past but no big major conversation just "here`s a new tin,blah,blah,sorry bout the mancs"and run like bloody fuck ..she was nice enough though,and over a while i`ve spoke to them all,not countin or nowt,just in passin,i`m not the kind of person who gets star struck...hahaha stars....erm,but i would try not to talk to tracyanne too much incase she got the wrong idea an came onto me(only jokin of course,but she liked my rendition of"if you want my body"at the end of her appearence on youtube doin"some guys have all the luck" )an summonded me towards her,quite scary for all concerned...aaghem...anyways,i talked to nigel quite a bit at leamington cos i went to the coffee shop with him while he bought some stuff,sound bloke...they were stayin at the same hotel as us...i spoke to gav a little bout the daleks(i haven`t got a clue)...an that were it really.....i spoke to nigel again at sheffield,and warned tracyanne that someone had bin dippin her tin again(hahaha its not often ya get ya tin dipped,unless your in the wizard of oz and youve landed at garlands.................)

Well, i'm from Rome and i have a particular accent too, it's not the classic italian language, even if italian people can understand me better than an english can do with a scottish, i think...

Yes, we've been lucky enough to see the band loads of times over the years and each time there is a bit of magic. And it looks like you are going to get your chance - next month!

http://www.camera-obscura.net/gigs/93/monochrome-liverpool

We'll already be at Indie Tracks otherwise it would have been great to come up and finally meet you in person. I'm really excited that Teenage Fanclub have been added too!

I think Carey is from Kent but she seems to be picking up a bit of Glaswegian in that interview. I guess she's lived there a while now.

The scooter looks lovely! I can't believe that you're out and about on a bike now! And I see a Morrisey ticket there too! Fantastic.

We were in Glasgow in April and saw an exhibition that you would have loved. It was by a chap called Phil Collins (not that one) and he had filmed lots of people doing karaoke to "The World Won't Listen". Some of them were quite good but it was so impressive how much the band meant to people in Indonesia, Columbia and Turkey. Here's an article:

http://dallasmuseumofart.org/Dallas_Museum_of_Art/View/Future_Exhibitions/ID_190509

If you ever get a chance, go and see it and give yourself lots of time. I thought Tom was never going to leave!

Yes it seems as if theyre coming to Lpool. Well spose its not certain with their recent cancellations. Hoping that isnt a serious state of affairs for them as human beings but selfishly for me too.
Now to convince my friends to come with me.

i didnt know that about Carey, did she study up there?

Id seen a little video of that Smiths exhibition - thank god is wasnt "that" Phil Collins - and thought how novel it was. Someone on Twitter whos a massive Morrissey fan * lives in Edinburgh went and raved about it too.

She was certainly studying up until maybe last year. Or maybe the year before. I lose track of time alot.

Hey, I sent you an email and it bounced. Is your email down? (this is Orynthia by the way, not Tom)

Yes, sorry I was going to post later on.

I was like a dog with a bone about this. Leaving my little disappointments all over the place.

Apparently the Liverpool gig is off, something to do with the venue, possibly not being suitable or something.
First I registered my question, then my complaint, then my sorrow. If they had of come theyd have run a mile if I popped up with my grubby paw looking to say hello...lol

Anyway, its not on & thats a shame. Especially as this album is such a stormer.
