[quote="Dunneryfan"]That's because it is the guitar opening and break from castles. It's also the intro/ending to the original necromandus album.

So it's just me that thinks the first and last tracks are not up to the quality of the rest of the album? Sounds to me like these are FD penned, whereas the rest of the album are covers (by his brother). And you can certainly tell.

12 good tracks of 14 would make it pretty cracking then?

The live tracks were stellar and the band plays as a band - Tony glues it all together. Francis' guitar sound is killer and when michael doubles the guitar lines they are present.

Sure it's a style from the 70s but that's fine and a place I feel comfortable.

Listened to the cd for the first time on the drive south from St Bees - 1 and a quarter times - the second time through I really liked Frankenstein monster.

So who knows. I like both the Necromandus reworkings and the new songs and the memory of the gig still makes me smile.

All my opinion - P

Very Happy Well the charity weekend was a resounding success, and the music and show was just stunning Exclamation If you like your prog ( and don't mind it being 70's influenced Question ) and you're up for seeing Frank play as good as he's ever played..then grab yourself a ticket because this is the gig for you. I didn't think i'd ever see Frank play electric like this again, and actually saw tears of joy on peoples faces. You know it makes sense Laughing

Can anyone shed any light on the writing credits? They aren't on the CD.

I'm guessing as well as Frankenstein Monster, Multicoloured Judy Green is a FD composition.

Nope - Judy is a necromandus song. I'm traveling and don't have the cd here but the other Francis song is the fusion sounding one.

You could check necromandus songs on YouTube to compare- bearing in mind that Tony changed the original song titles and Francis reverted them.

David/Peter...Judy Green Rocket is the Necromandus song, so i'm guessing 'Multicoloured' is an acoustic reworking by FD ?? Rolling Eyes

'Blood of our Fathers' is a cover by jazz rock band Warm Dust...the guitar playing on this is sensational live...

Love it!! (And as it happens, the 1st & last tracks are a cuppla my faves!)

Slight reservations about the (too me) slightly overly 'dry' 70s-style production, but still love it!!

love

Good bit of info there Stewart. (how did you know that??)
Here's a link I found to the original http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-7tLsVjRvY (first 5 mins).

Also interested in Peter's comment that the (slightly unorthodox) titles on Frankenstein Monster were actually Necromandus' original ones!! Is that correct then?

I'm really excited by this CD which I've only had for a little over 24 hours.

I'm a bit in 2 minds about the title track mind you... Sometimes I think it's 7 minutes of over repetition and the same slightly annoying drum beat throughout, with little to break it up and sometimes, (when played loud particularly) it seems to groove along like a real muthafucka!!! (I do think it will work great live as a first song in any instance!)

And the last track 'Multicolored Judy Green is OK, but doesn't seem to fit with the rest of it to me..

HOWEVER... The rest of it is sheer unadulterated 70's rock/prog bliss, chock full of raunch and glorious soloing. I love the intentionally stripped down production myself and think he's created some sumptuous guitar tones too, which I know he worked hard at.

Can't wait till the gig later today in Manchester Cool Cool Cool

Colin, can't remember to tell you the truth..Frank mentioned it somewhere in one of his blogs.
Also a mate of mine went to recent NYC gig and took a pic of set-list that said 'Warm Dust'.

You will learn about some of the song name changes at the gig in Frank's usual hilarious style Laughing
But he found a lot of this out from a guy, up in Cumbria, called Buzz Elliott who is a massive Necromandus fan and helped Frank with lyrics, history, rare recordings etc etc (He is on the video on St Bees beach on FD.com, recreating the Necromandus photos)

Check out the Merch stall tonight. At Charity weekend there were some lyric sheets that Buzz had done,that explain alot about songs and list all recordings, not sure if they all went or will be available tonight.

Enjoy the gig.. Wink
