Quote from: SueC on April 03, 2020, 02:21:06A question for any guitar enthusiasts out there. Why is RS playing in the opposite position to the standard one on the fingerboard - top-down, rather than wrapping the hand around bottom-up? I've actually never seen that before, and anyway, I reference everything back to violin, so maybe this is a guitar option?
Quote from: piggymirror on April 03, 2020, 04:04:18Robert's very obvious when he's lip-syncing, but this time he's not singing, so...However, the video for Slowdive shows him toying with a violin, so...
Quote from: BiscuityBoyle on April 03, 2020, 12:20:19Such a cute clip! If I had to guess, I'd say he refused to hold the guitar in that one cause he didn't play on the recorded track. Or simply because the idea of him with a violin is funnier...

Quote from: BiscuityBoyle on April 04, 2020, 14:35:20A song like The Hanging Garden, one of his finest, sees him try to replicate Budgie's virtuosity with the aid of a drum machine; by this point it was clear that Lol's days as a drummer were numbered, as he could no longer satisfy Robert's musical ambitions.
Quote from: Ulrich on April 09, 2020, 17:16:48Is there any proof to his rather unpleasant rumour?
Quote"The drum sound was obtained by putting the kit in the large recording room and removing all the acoustic shields, so there was an immense natural reverb."
QuoteWell, the sound is thin on that video (recorded around the time the album was finished), but it proves that Lol can handle the beat(s).
Quote from: BiscuityBoyle on April 09, 2020, 19:07:30... in the studio version of the song the inspiration for the drum sound was Budgie.
Quote from: BiscuityBoyle on April 29, 2020, 21:18:40In a way, I understand the loathing for Robert in quarters of the SATB fandom: his two brief tenures in the band bookended their once-in-a-lifetime purple patch of Kaleidoscope, Juju and A Kiss in the Dreamhouse. The day when McGeoch was gone and Robert was recruited really marked the beginning of the end of their golden age, except obviously none of that was Robert's fault. The real culprit was Father Time, the unfortunate fact that nothing lasts forever.
