Surely enough for a CD - Who's up for this? - Let's generate some interest and get Paulo in the CD racks or at least available for download.
A fitting epitaph for Paul Hester, the man and his music.
Original Post
Am bumping this topic up now
Those first two Largest Living Things EP's sold out like - dead fast! Could never quite figure why we never got an album, they started well recording with a few live gigs then strangely seemed to meander. There were still a few live gigs and the TV shows Hessie's Shed then Molloy - then nothing. Is anybody interested in a (an albeit postumous) Largest Living Things CD or is it just me? Frowner I for one who like to hear more of Paul's music - I for one love it! Remember this was the chap that wrote Italian Plastic, Skin Feeling & This Is Massive! - this is the way I want to remember him.
I've got no idea how much more LLT stuff is out there but I have to say that I really enjoy the first 2 LLT EP's. The live songs are just great and I only wish that I'd gone to see them back in the day...

It would be fantastic if there was a LLT album but I guess that decision is left up to Kevin and the rest of the band and of course, Paul's family.

Time will tell I guess. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Well you've done a lot better than me all i have is the Other Enz CD (My Time Is Now) & the stuff through the Fan-club Tremelo On (Rare #2) & Rainy Day Women (Everybody Must Get Stoned) on DVD - God bless Peter Green but it's not enough Frowner
I too would have loved to see them back in the day - You don't know what you've missed when it's gone Frowner
But wouldn't it be great to be listening to some music from Paul that is new to our ears. Smiler Smiler Smiler Smiler Smiler

I agree equally depressing as I too need them - frustrating to know that there is even more out there than that - see my earlier posts. I am pushing like a bull-terrier for at least a limited release of an album. I realise some of this may be tied up estate/ royalties but I'm sure there is more interest. Pehaps people don't know THIS IS WAS PAUL'S BAND AFTER LEAVING CROWDED HOUSE.
Still quite a lot... some minor talk about a release but not sure what stage.... if I run into Kev I'll ask him again.... i think there is easily enough material for a fine double CD.

Over the years working with LLt Paul and the guys have given us quite a few bits and pieces to listen to and some of the material never released is really great.

So hopefully......

Thank you so much for that update Peter.

As time marches on, it seems so very important to acknowledge and appreciate the musical contributions made by Paul.

The thought of a double CD, even if it's just a glimmer of hope on the distant horizon....WOW! Big Grin

I can't tell you how happy that would make me and many others I'm sure. I'll definitely be keeping my fingers and everything else crossed that it becomes a reality.

Has anyone seen Kev?

KEV?

KEEEEEEV? Wink

YAAAAAAAYYYY!!!!!!!! ANY CHANCE TO LISTEN TO 'NEW' PAUL STUFF IS GREAT Big Grin - DOUBLE CD!!! Eeker
I'd also love to hear a LLT release. I remember loving the music they performed on The Mick Molloy Show back in the day. It was very CH-esque, probably a little snappier and a bit more fun sounding. Think along the lines of Boom Crash Opera (from the tracks I heard anyway).

If a CD release isn't possible, i'm so keen for it i'd even settle for an iTunes release, this is coming from someone who resents digital distribution because of the authenticity it lacks of a physical release CD.
You've heard more than me then - I'd settle on hearing any LLT stuff on whatever format ... even on an edison cylinder Big Grin. Can't comment on Boom Crash Opera haven't heard them this side of the pond ... but I know one of Paul's best friends was in that band .. Richard Pleasance - so that would make some sense.
Any further news on the CD Peter?

I was listening to Triple M today in the car on the way home from the airport and they were playing songs from Woodface. They introduced the album with a snippet of Paul talking... it just got me thinking again... what better way to remember Paul than through the music that he loved. Fingers are still crossed that this becomes a reality.
at this stage no...I can imagine it happening further down the track and there was some talk of the Shed shows on DVD (or maybe a Best Of the Shed)... things around the estate take time, but I'm staying positive and hoping something will happen. Paul was always amazingly generous with what he gave the fans/fanclub- so it would be nice to repay that by supporting a 'real' album release.
Gryph.
I too would like to see more of Paul's works released.
The man was a gift in his own right, as we all are.
I don't think it's right that a GF/fling should be able to contest an estate (if that the case), especially when kids are involved. Any kids you bear should get 50% + auto !!
They are the ones that feel the greater pain in years to come.

Lets hope that The Finns can lend a strong legal hand into this one, as they're not short of a $bob$ after keeping "friends" with all these label people throughout the years !

This is where it counts guys.. the personal stuff.

hi, I just added a note to the LLT EP's thread. Would love to see Hessie's stuff and LLT EP's available as digital downloads (if not limited edition cd's).  As noted here there is also other unreleased stuff that could make the cut. 

Paul was a huge loss,so even a digital downloads (say via bandcamp) would be great.  Even a charity album where proceeds could go to assist with suicide prevention...

I'd like to publicly thank Markw6796 for making the trade with me, I've been looking for the the first LLT for many years and now I can finally hear it. 

 

THANKS MARK!!! 

 

I've said it before, but I'll say it again here, the FOTE forum is filled with some of the nicest people on the web!!! WoooHooo!

OK, time to clear this up.  From LLT2, is it "Turn Off The Night" or "Turn Out The Night"?  I see "Off" more frequently, including on the fan club re-release of the LLT material, but Paul sings "Out" during the song most of the time.  Also, George Servanis, who knows a bit about the material, lists the song as "Out" at least on this page.
