Been a long time since there was any Liam news on this forum; does anyone know any more about his new record? There's been a couple of new songs pop up on You-Tube (Snug as F*ck being one, pretty nice song in spite of the title). Seems like he's doing some promotion. Any release date, etc?

Why? It's not like we're in the 1950's or something. And he's hardly the first successful artist to have an album or song title with profanity. It does get your attention and his presumed target audience (young-ish hip people) couldn't care less about the f-word. (I know not all his fans fit that description, but I'm sure it's where the record company is aiming.)

Because this forum *IS* in the 1950's and it automatically censors any use of profanity by replacing the word with ****, which is rather childish.  Because of this problem, my original link to the article about streaming Liam's new song did not work because the text of the link itself contained the f-word, which was replaced by ****.

 

This link will not work, because the f-word is part of the link.  Therefore, sharing a news article on this forum about Liam's new single becomes quite difficult.

Let's turn off the parental controls here.  This is the internet.  People swear.  A lot.  It's not a big deal.

I agree that Liam's fans won't care much about it. But, there are still some radio stations, tv stations and yes some websites, such as this one, that will have a problem.

Agreed. There is a line to be drawn at some point - that's what moderators are for - but I'm not sure why this site has to be G-rated. Especially when it prohibits sharing of a legitimate link.

 

Censoring words with asterisks does not really mask the context or intent of the language, it merely shields our oh-so delicate eyes from the sight of something naughty. Which is kind of silly.

Some random notes... The album less pop song oriented than the other albums. The songs are longer and more epic. Lots of great guitar all over the album. Also really drum driven, sometimes electronic. 4 track stomper is driven by an awesome electronic beat. The Nihilist is Prince-ish.

The whole album reminds of King of Limbs the last Radiohead album. Another Liam reference point is Jump your bones.

Helena Boneham could be a new Barb song.
