Come Eleven:Eleven

ElevenI’m putting my vinyl copy of Come’s Eleven:Eleven into a digital format and have just realised why I used to love vinyl as much as I did.

It’s not just that the sound is different, it’s not just that the physicality of a record is different to a CD, it’s also because back then I used to read the inkies (mainly the NME) religiously and cut stuff out of them to slip into the sleaves of the albums I bought.

So with this album I have a review (8/10) and short article, which tells me that when:

they played their first UK date at London’s New Cross Venue; they were so jet-lagged that bassist Sean O’Brien actually fell asleep during the set, waking up mi-song to be startled by a crowd of people staring at him.

Ah, those were the days when the Venue used to put on bands that had written their own songs.

    Putting reviews in sleeves, now that’s an
    excellent idea. Now and then someone
    mentions that the Venue is going to start
    putting proper bands on, but I’ve heard
    these rumors for 4 years now.
    Still hoping.

    Can’t do it with CDs which is a shame as it’s nice to be able to look back at what the feeling about a band or album was.
