WOW! I didn't expect this so soon... Love Is A Moron is now available from Phil hisself to anyone and everyone!!!

The CD is $28 AUD (Australian Dollars) postpaid. You can send payment to Phil at his PayPal account colin444@optushome.com.au

I don't see a link at www.philjudd.com yet, but I'm sure there'll be one soon.

This is such a great and sudden surprise!

I agree with Mr. Peter Green... I think this CD in many respects is even better than Novelty Act! I'm super excited for people to hear this one!
Phil's dropping into Ailsa Craig this weekend with a car load of signed LOVE IS A MORON cds for the club. So we starts sending these out (signed with bonus dvd) on Monday. Remember we are up against christmas mail so please allow for that.

We have about 20 copies left (signed) with the bonus dvd so any club members after one of these email me and you can still get it with the bonus.

Nice to say STOCK IS ARRIVING! Go Juddy!

As per the other post, we did get all our signed MORON cds (with bonus dvdr) posted- I know from Emails some of the Aussie fans have received it already.

The club has now ran out of stock BUT we are getting a final 20 signed copies (with bonus dvdr) over the next week+ for those who are late ordering it. Email me if you are a club member & still need a signed copy with the dvdr.

Hi - good question. I know Phil did produce a lot of art for a booklet, but if you didn't receive it, it might have been cut from the manufacturing process due to costs (with no label to pony up the advance costs, it's all self-financed.

I'll check with the man and, if that is the case, I'll see about getting a pdf download on the site.
Actually he didn't check the booklet Aka, just the cds. He brought them up here, they wern't sent. I checked them for the CD (but not the booklet).
I've sent the 2 people Phils email address so they can hassle him for booklets.
I've also suggested to Phil to check his stock before he sends any out in case they don't have any booklets.
If anyway receives a copy without a booklet just Email Phil. I'm sure it's just one or two that the CD printers somehow missed.
I have zero (Phil has all the stock) and plenty to spare so I'm sure he can send out the 2 booklets without a hassle.

Whoops - didn't mean to sound like I was doubting you Gryph - just wanted to make sure the booklets were definitely missing before Phil starts yelling at his printers Smiler

Happy new year y'all
Yeah Phil just emailed me that there was a box of 66 at least that he didn't check, so I'd say the 2 came from that...

In orders of a thousand they tend to mess up a couple, it happens with the I Like It rare cds too, I think the covers and booklets are inserted manually so boredom of doing such tasks would lead to a few mistakes at the CD place I'm sure.

Being digi packs it's not so obvious when the booklet isn't included, on jewel cases you spot it instantly....

Anyway just email him if your copy didn't have the booklet and I'm sure he'll fix you up.

thanks
Gryph.
Enjoy the CD updates; hope to own PJ's latest offerings soon.

You are perhaps the best to ask - can you divulge is "The Artist Formerly Known as Phil Judd - Split Enz Founding Member", now "The Artist Currently Known as Phil Judd - Standout Musician In His Own Write" pleased with sales?

Any pre-authorised accidental leaks/ secrets coming out from the Phudd cave?
My fave song (via Myspace) was SHY, love the vulnerability, BUT fans are fickle ay, now it's Vixen - cause it's played less; I like to veer away from the crowd, so I'm very into it! (Will open a thread for that... ) But it has some great hooks… like the Vixen I guess.

I am pleasantly surprised how strong PJ’s voice is. It has aged well, whether because his voice is in the higher register, or he sings a lot round the house, whatever? It sounds like he finished the Swingers last album and then went on to this!

I think of another ex-Enzer I heard sing live recently, it caused me to cringe as their voice was weak and wobbly. He did not have a naturally strong voice and perhaps overlooked the importance of practice to keep the voice strong. I felt he took his talent for granted because of the Enz association, but I don’t think you can do that. You have to work hard these days to win an ever more music-savvy audience.
Fanx Jaffaman for news; 2 late by 1 measly hour - grrrr. Can't see Music 101 on list for Replayz so will just hav to wait for my CD order to be 'procezzed'. (Sorry 2 much txting - tz diztortn de English langwij!)

(PS - I felt glad that someone/s put the effort into making 'Enzology', to record the history of the Enz. 'Twas interesting to hear the Enz story in their own words and music. Well done to you and those involved.)

Ouch! That's cold.
I don't think there's anything definitive that can be said about how an artist's voice holds up as they age.

Some people are lucky (in addition to Phil, Peter Gabriel springs to mind - able to overdub live Genesis vocals almost 30 years after the fact?) some are really unlucky (Elton John - no comparison from his early stuff to what he does now) and others adapt to it as best they can.

From what I know of Phil, I don't think he's undertaken any specific regimen - I think he just falls into the 'lucky' camp. Also, if you think about how most of what he produced in the 90s was soundtrack material, I don't know how much the vocal chords were getting a work out over those years.

Then again, maybe that helped him. Seems to me to be a veritable crapshoot whether you can maintain your sound over the length of a modern music career...

Anyway, moving on, anyone got any more thoughts on the album at hand?
I don't quite agree with Aka O Miru about nothing definitive to say about the aging voicee.

Bear with me as my POV is from knowing & watching a choir director/ composer for 10 years; over & over saw improved performance of his singers simply thru' extra song practices & use of warmup exercises for voice.

When I saw this Enzer, a 'professional' sing weakly I was surprised. Wrongly assumed his voice would be well prepared (like a choir's, I guess).

So - why didn't he notice it himself & fix it? (Another poster on FF has mentioned this elsewhere too so it's not just me.) And didn't a friend/ family-member/ co-musician say something? Or maybe he ignored advice??

I'm not sure, but I wasn't being cruel, more thinking, with my limited knowledge, it seemed disappointing that someone who uses their voice to make a living wasn't 100% on best form. (more to say, takes too long...)

I know how hard my friend worked to get vocals spot on & have seen how results come fairly fast, if you commit to the work. Well worth the effort. Thanks.
Yeh - there's plenty out there... W's & V's.

Just hearing W**kers for the first time today, tis interesting....

It's gotta be a kick in the pants to be a part of staking a place in music history, only to be treated like a leper - so untouchable or 'difficult' you can't be involved to celebrate that role, even in a small way...

That's not to say there weren't things that needed saying or mending to build bridges, but from the outside view it does look extremely unforgiving, ungracious & cold, cold, cold.

What was so intolerable about PJ that he couldn't be there? I'm thinking there is some unspeakable but vital piece of info missing here... (werevolves don't exist right?)
PART B - EX ENZ VOCAL PERFORMANCE
(This is also what disappointed me about the afore-mentioned Enz performance.)

Energetic Marketing (the best way to describe itSmiler

If you write songs & perform music for a living, then you hope to sell what you created for money, right. As well as being a creator, you also ARE a type of product. Artists have their ‘aura’ (not new age type), whether true or manufactured, which people factor into what they're buying. You would be aware that your personality, face, image, performance, lifestyle, history, and associations are an extension of promoting your music. (Marketing is a huge industry!)

Having ‘fame’ does increase the likelihood of sales, since people know you & trust you can deliver the goods, but it is not a guaranteed-meal ticket, especially in NZ.

The bug-bear for me was imagining I made an album –
I’d want it to be the best damn thing it could, for my satisfaction and to captivate the audience. I’d promote the album to the highest standard, so afterwards there were no regrets. Capture the momentum and do all I could to get it out there; via every marketing avenue available.

Even with past success I’d be thinking of the competition; trying to find a niche; etc & especially captivate audiences with the 1st hearing, by ensuring it is strong & brilliant. You would want to leave the best impression so listeners say ‘more please’. Every musical & professional aspect would have to be excellent, surely. Is this too idealistic? No, not if you love music & it’s your life.

In live performance you have to bring something strong, fresh and new, because while audiences love talent, they will not enjoy low standards of music production or performance. So many people make their own music at home for fun, so they know if it’s weak & even how to improve it. They may respect your 'reputation' & clap, but don’t expect a record sale to follow.

If you give it all to the writing but can’t be bothered to give it ALL to the promotion of what earns you a living, then it seems kind of rude. It’s like saying "oh it doesn’t matter if you like it or not. I’ve finished the album, so my part is done... (Isn't that just the start?)
From Elf to Eel & back again??

The reincarnationists would have a field day with that one...

Dream sequence: Prof. Dorm Ant speaks to camera:
"Yezz, we believe the Electric Eel was the original ancestor of the Electric Elf-man. This has been scientifically verified & confirmed through somewhat vague yet distinctly clear hallucinegory evidence. We have not many doubts that he went through the process widely know as 'heavolution'.

Thizz physiological shift enabled the Eel to develop 'uman-like features such as limbs, facial fluff, a hair-trigger temper & 'omocidal leisure activities. The brain went into fiery overload, once the emergant Elf-man left the swamps confines, because he learnt he'd accidentally sparked a worldwide fashion revolt, through his rather resourceful act of clothing himself in 1970's Flame-Resistant Curtains, to hide his remaining eel belly..."

yawn...

bye
