Last I heard, Phil was going to give it the old girl guide try and get the new album finished in the next four months or so...

Here is the JUDDALISED TRACKLISTING for LOVE IS A MORON as of late December:

4) The PRICK
14) SIT & SPIN

Phil said it's a 7-track album with 8 BONUS TRACKS!!! Hah hah...

There are a few other odd tracks that may or may not make the album -- "Syd" (AKA "Red Rover"), "Spit The Dummy," and "Abattoir of Love" (a potential title track at one point)... Hopefully, we'll see one or more of these turn up on an I LIKE IT RARE compilation...

Of course, this is all subjective to change in his mind's eye and yours at any given moment!!! Such is the world and reality, right???

BUT I just wanted to give everyone more to ponder and get excited about!!!

I've heard rough sketches of more than half the album's tracks and I must say HE'S GOT SOME REALLY GREAT MATERIAL TO WORK WITH!!!

Speaking of morons, by December, do you mean December 2006 or December 2007???

Phil shared that tracklisting late December of last year. Of course, it will most likely evolve and change as he works on the album. Nothing is written in stone as yet. Such is the creative process.

Lightning Gob has a nice ring to it. It gave me an immediate and vivid picture in my head of Rip Van Winkle set in the mountains on the South Island.

I wonder if Phil could write a song about Van Winkle in such a setting and get Alastair Galbraith to do some narration on it! ...for the new album!!! Hahhhh!!!

Thanks, Jaffa! You've given me a great new name to use someplace or other...
I just wanted to let everyone know that Phil appears to be full steam ahead with his work on the new album -- Love Is A Moron. Check out the brilliant work in progress called "Painting Pictures With Words" on Phil's myspace:

And I noticed that several people on the "Ideal Judd Comp" thread haven't listed any tracks from Novelty Act, so I'm guessin' they don't have the album yet. It's not too late to order an autographed copy directly from Phil at this link:

If you haven't gotten Novelty Act yet, then just know that some of your favorite Judd songs are still waiting to be heard! I'm guessing Phil only has less than 100 copies left, so don't delay any longer!
In case you haven't dropped in on Phil's myspace in a while, he's got some new works in progress a-streaming -- "Hug", "Be My", and the already classic "Wankers"!!!

These are all under consideration for the upcoming Love Is A Moron.

Phil has been keeping very busy working on his solo material and his side project with bassist Roger Grierson of the seminal Aussie punk band the Thought Criminals.
Not to sound too much like it's the same 2 voices banging on about this all the time, but (IMHO) all the tracks up on the MySpace player at the moment are quite something and a real indication that LIAM is going to be quite the el-bum...

Give em' all a listen:

Putty in My Hands - a raucous wee rocker
Hangin' by a Thread - what a hook to that chorus!!
Wankers - Enz history lesson (with a tune!)
Be My - Phil channels some of that Swingers-era Phil, proving the old bugger's still got it.
Can of Worms - Worms! On one heck of a hook!
Hug - Yoy - Mr Phudd laid bare... heartbreakin' emotional stuff... no Novelty Acts here...
No, it's not out yet. I imagine it may be finished by later this year, but it's hard to say. Like I mentioned before, Phil's got the project with Roger Grierson going on as well that should also result in some sort of release -- an EP perhaps with a full-length to follow.

He's got a lot that he's juggling right now, but I promise it will all be worth the wait!
Glad to hear the Juddster has been beavering away in his studio electronique, creating musique cest funtastique. No doubt the muse will be a little worse for wear, come the end of the year.

Ep with Roger Grierson! Now there's a duet i'd fly half way round the world to see perform at the Paddo Town Hall. Definately look forward to that one....!!! Cool
Yeah he came by a few days ago with son Pete for a visit and he says Love Is A Moron is about 85-90% done...

If all goes well signed copies will be available via the club and hopefully an Interview in the next newsletter (in a few months time).

He took some snaps and is designing the glorious cover art for my next diary book TRIP...will I regret letting him have a free range (egg?) with it? Nahhhhhhhh... be nice to have the cover have a Juddesque look.

So the wheels are turning still....

Cool!! -Hanging By a Thread - Nobody Home and REMINDmeTOforget .. are excellent phil .. hard to put a handle on the sound - very Island like.. shall we call it your "Hemingway Segway" Big Grin .. seriously .. these new songs are really great.

Too many Swedish backpackers .. And You're a slob .. get yaself a feckin housekeeper Big Grin Wink

Check 'em out:-:-Red Face)!!!

You've been imortalised in song Elfman! Eeker
Art imitating life, imitating art?
You lucky sod, what i wouldn't give to be imortalised in song, (although Radiohead came close with their first single without naming me in the chorus. Shame)

Some very tasty teasers there, just have to wait for the main course now. Only hope it's a double-album!! Wink

Yeah, it's a strange thing indeed.

Wasn't that Seona Dancing supposed to be about you?

Phil has one of his tunes with Roger Grierson up on his myspace if anyone's curious...
so he's working away on the final track.

There should be a full page Judd interview in the next glossy newsletter, and at a guess "Love ..." is out late November-December (depending on pressings etc).

The track listing still is not 100% but I think he's close to making decisions on the final cut.

So it continues to roll along folks.
Yeah, Phil has just roughed out the final song for Love Is A Moron. It's called "Shy" and is streaming on his myspace now:::

All the tunes he has streaming at the moment are serious contenders for the album. Give 'em all a listen!

Now, he just needs to put all the finishing touches on things and finish the artwork and she's all done! As with Mr. Phudd & His Novelty Act, Phil intends to have artwork for each song
Yeah I'm hoping to have signed copies via the club (and if all goes well another special Judd bonus for club members with this album) hoping for a December release. A lot obviously depends on pressing and Phil having all the parts ready. But still early Dec. There may be a VIP email over the next week with more details on this for club members who are on the clubs VIP email service.

He's working on the art side of the cd booklet but took time out to sign the first batch of Mental Notes covers (in fine gold pen) god bless him. (:

So it's all moving along.

He's now just working out the track listing. I'm hoping he sticks to the track version he mailed us recently as it 'feels' just right.

Nice that it's 14 songs, (or '8 tracks and 6 bonus'as he has on the front art *GRIN*).

Aussie club members will get an update sheet over the next few days but the bulk of the Judd-Love Is.... info including interview will be in the next glossy newsletter.

The wheels are turning...
Yes about 50 of the 100 have been spoken for.

We start filming next week... sales info for the cd was mentioned on the recent VIP email via the club as well as the aussie mailout (update)

If somehow club members missed those they can email me ( include full name-address and if possible membership number & ask for information on Phil Judds cd and bonus disc.
Interview was fun, which is also code for 'how the f**k do we edit this' *grin*.

A nice bonus for those first 100 and it will probably end with a solo by Phil on his new 'guitar' (and that's all I'm saying). Trying to figure out what to have printed on the Interview dvdrs...'A Conversation with Phil" (*grin*) 'Phil Judd Moron Interview' (think his perverse humour would enjoy that one). (:

After several months Love Is A Moron still gets so many plays in the office- I really enjoyed Novelty Act but I truly believe 'Moron' really is his best work so far. It really does deserve a full record company release- so that saddens me some what.

The Unthinkables CD, I enjoyed some of it but I truly like Judds work for his lyrics so it's not as enjoyable (for me) but it's just peoples taste, some people will love The Unthinkables and it wouldn't surprise me if it gets a totally different following. But yeah it's 'Love Is A Moron' that gets the thumbs up from us....and if all goes well only 3 weeks till some club members have it (with the bonus disc).
