Both of these tracks are absolutely brilliant! Garden Varieties in particular sounds like Neil writing sunshine pop What are the plans for Mode Atlanta's future?

Missed this the first time around, thanks for reviving it, Hawk. Yes, a couple of very nice tracks. A little XTC-ish, too (in a good way). As I'm from the southern USA, curious as to "Atlanta" in your band name.

Thanks Hawk57 and Steve for having a listen, glad your digging it! Plans for the future, we're recording two more songs in April then bundling them with They Love You and Garden Varieties and releasing as an EP, we're also going to make a short youtube series in which we pair acoustic recordings of some newer songs with footage shot at our drummer's new place. As for the name, it was just one of those things i thought up when half asleep, you know when the synapses are firing different ways...

Good to hear there's more on the way! I thought I might have heard a touch of REM influence in Garden Varieties but I wasn't sure if it was just because of your name. Also I could understand the lyrics which isn't like REM at all

Have a listen to my band Mode Atlanta - shades of Crowded House, or so i hope!

Mitchell Laney ·
Hello Frenz, long time follower, Frenz life member and occasional poster here. I'd love for you all to have a listen to my band Mode Atlanta. These are our first two recorded tracks, they're called "They Love You" and "Garden Varieties". The reason i post them here is because Crowded House and Neil Finn's music has been a huge influence on my own songwriting, from the way i present my music (artwork that evokes childhood but through the eyes of adulthood, thanks Nick ;) to lyrical matter...

FOTE digital releases?

The Pineapple Head ·
Any chance of getting FOTE fanclub exclusive cds released digitally to allow people who didn't get the chance to obtain them the first time to hear them? Would anyone else enjoy this?

I doubt very much that this would happen due to the fact that the record company had issues with the fan club selling the live CDs, that's why they ceased producing more of them. Even though it states on the back sleeves "Thanks to EMI", it does not necessarily mean that EMI gave the fan club permission to release the live material due to EMI holding some rights (or all) over the material that was used. That is why they are regarded as bootleg CDs. They are highly sought after CDs. Releasing...

IIRC, there was an agreement between EMI and the fan club that the club could release a very specific number of live CDs. That's why they are only something like 500 copies of each. I think a website of digital live albums would be incredible, but it seems unlikely that the demand is there to support it. Crowded House really should put out some more live material in an official capacity. They were just as good live as they were in the studio and it's a shame that we only have the Recurring...

Yeah, any re-release would need record company permission. After all, they're the ones who own the rights to the recordings. I very much doubt they'd allow that. It's amazing really that they allowed the fan club to do it. I strongly suspect that that's why the club always stipulated they could only be sold on to other fan club members and at face value and why the clamped down on eBay auctions etc. It really is a shame because they're a treasure trove of fabulous performances. My biggest...

The fan club live releases are a really valuable resource of the band's live output covering all of the early tours that aren't represented much elsewhere, certainly not officially beyond select b-side tracks. One drawback is that they have been edited to facilitate a single disc release so are frustratingly incomplete. While the Recurring Dream bonus disc (a compilation of performances) and the Farewell To The World release (also an incomplete performance) remain the only live releases put...

Some interesting posts in this thread! Great memory with all the live material released @The Ligature . Those 2007 and 2010 boxed sets were a godsend, even with all the delays, printing errors and flimsy 2007 physical box. I also grabbed those three USBs Apollo shows at the time, although I'm still missing two of the five Live on Earth CDs (Birmingham and London). Live in Philadelphia '87 was since issued on CD in 2016, although this might only be considered semi-official. An official (or...
