Thank you all for the welcome
I like the Lightning Seeds Dizzy Heights album a lot, it was nice to hear more of a band sound than the synths and drum machines on Jollification.
It's interesting because I see Neil and Ian as opposite sides of the same coin, the Lightning Seeds stuff is in general pretty immediate and obviously 'hooky' whereas I find Neils work to be sonically deeper and not as immediate but longer term more gratifying if that makes sense!
But they are both incredibly talented writers in a similar sphere.
I do very much agree a UK tour would help an awful lot. Pretty much everyone I've introduced Neil and Liams stuff to has loved it so it's a bit of a shame, I hope after the Fleetwood Mac stuff it will get revisited
Hobart is a lovely part of the world if a little bit quiet for me most of the time. Being used to living in big cities that never shut it's quite bizarre when you can't get a pizza after 10pm!
The commute honestly is a killer, I spend most of my time either on a plane, thinking about getting on a plane or recovering from being on a plane.
