Is this a new track just uploaded to BF's Myspace site? Just got a notice. Sorry if this is a repeat, since I haven't been perusing as thoroughly or often as I used to.

Digging the track! I like it more every time i hear it, the production is great. I think the Golem has the potential to be a FB classic along with Frank Black, Teenager of the Year, Dog in the Sand, Show Me Your Tears, and in my opinion Bluefinger and Svn Fngrs. Lots of stuff going on in this one, sounds like alot of time was put into it.
Thanks for the song!

There's also a new video for When They Come To Murder Me and talk of a new USB-release.

Uh huh. Cheers for the link. Ohh ooh la la will be slipped into conversation today.

quick rip for anyone: http://www.sendspace.com/file/z77f9l

Great to see The Adventure and The Resolution on the media player. In my opinion one of the greatest FB tracks and always will be.

Thanks fbc. This is a wonderful tune - I am getting more and more interested to get my hands on Der Golem by the hour. When is it being released again?


I have the key to #902

The beginning of this song sounds JUST LIKE another song but I can't quite remember what it is. I'm thinking Rolling Stones maybe? Someone please help!

I LOVE it, by the way!!!

I'm guessing Tom Waits' sax man Ralph Carney.

Its either Factory Girl or Street Fighting Man from the album Beggars Banquet. I thought exactly the same when I first heard it! Would need to check which, but haven't had a copy of this album for 15 years at least.

Great song. Much more depth of production than the not-so-well-produced-if-were-honest, seven fingers. Blue finger had excellent production too. Not sure what happened in between. Home studio perhaps?

I don't have any problem with the production of Svn Fngers. Recorded at Wavelength Studios. Done fairly quickly, but it sounds great.

productions not bad, but it doesnt seem to stand being turned up loud very well. Sounds a but thin, for want of a better word. It is missing the sheen of, say, FMRM or the golem stuff thats now coming out. EDF just has a different approach I think...bit more organic sounding and less harsh. Horses for courses though.

Seven fingers has some of my favorite songs on it though.

Yeah, the bass is pretty high up in the mix!

I think that's why the EDF records are so loved, aside from the songwriting... the production, although complex, sounds marvellous even on a brash, punkish song.

I listened to this earlier when I woke up. I think it's possibly his best song from the last five years or so. The flute is amazing while the melody and shifts in structure are quintessential Black.

tofuescape mentioned The Rolling Stones above but I always get a Who vibe, particularly the opening. There ain't nothing wrong with that though.

Second time upping this thread after a three year gap (THERE AIN'T NOTHIN WRONG WITH THAT) but oh boy I sure enjoy this song. It's his ode to Van Morrison. Possibly. Whatever. But boy his rugged singing during the verses is just glorious. And that chorus is so fun.

It's one of my all-time favorite compositions and studio performances of his.

Really, really spectacular and somewhat transcendent and timeless, in an offhanded way.

100% agreed Peter. The Golem as a whole, is right up there for me with TOTY, DW and SMYT. Love this record.

Quite sad that Duane Jarvis who played guitar parts on this is not around.

My favourite from this record is Stay (how I wish I could) I could listen to that song repeat for weeks. Eargasm.
