Other than on E-bay I can't find any other seller selling this.

Any news Rob?

I'd certainly like to hear this.

I wouldn´t buy this album as it seems that there is no such thing...
There´s NOTHING indicating that Louis Gordon released a limited CD album. Nowhere...

I´ve asked in a shop for special order items, a DJ who´s usually dealing with this kind of music..Nothing!

I just found little information about the label called Black Spot Records. There is no website! And there´s only one band mentioned in conection with Black Spot Records: The Badways from Detroit?????????

WEIRD!!!! bemused

I just asked the seller for more information -like where he´d bought this cd..

Can only back up what Rob said.
I know nothing of this album lately, but from
an industry view i know this album Has Been Out
for quiet some time.
It is an official legel release.

[EDIT] 15.30pm
The louis gordon album sold on ebay was Not a pre-release or re-release. It was an original album which came out several months ago.
I do have other information, but i would term it as 'professional gossip'.
So this is all i can say, louis will obviously know more.

Is odd, isn't it. How is it possible to "release" a CD without any mention whatsoever anywhere on the Web? Takes some doing.

And what does "professional gossip" mean? Have John and Louis split up?

Im not sure where the confusion is coming from.
All i did was stated the facts.

1 As Rob said the album is around.
2 The only other thing i said is that it was released once, and that was months ago.

There is always talk in the idustry i.e. 'professional gossip'. There is always talk in the music industry just like in any place of work.
NO ONE AS SAID OF ANY SPLIT BETWEEN JOHN AND LOUIS. There is no real problem here, the album just seemed to come out without many people knowing. There ARE people who bought it, and John and Louis have still worked together since.

Thanks Rob,

Fans must remember, that sometimes items are released without even the artist's knowing.
Even in those case's there is nothing 'wierd'.
I hope people, as i said on the 9th, will wait for the facts

Dear All

Loius does have a limited edition CD out called
Closed Gone Fishing.
It is not on a major label neither does it have a distribution deal.
It appears that the only place you can get it at present it from eBay or off Louis himself.

I have a copy that Louis gave me last week when we met him and John to discuss the impending tour.

Thanks
Chris
(for those of you that don't know I'm the teccy for John and Louis)

So... what does Louis's CD sound like? Is it the electronic stuff we might expect based on his collaborations with John, or is it something different?

With so many forum members, and most of us in our mid 30's +, it stands to reason that some of
us work in the industry. I think i know of about five now.
Thanks for clearing this up quick.
I thought Rob and i were alone on knowing about
this one. (which is not always a good thing)

There are a very large amount of items unknown to fans that i/we could still give information on, to help fans on this forum.
Such as the 150+ live Ultravox recordings.
But when people misunderstand, and sometime's knowingly be provocative, i dont see the point.

I could accept your sorry if you had just said you were 'being provocative'. But to add 'worked, didn't it wink A' is not good.
Its not just me you have to say 'sorry' too.
It was Rob who wondered about what i was saying because of these type of comments.
He even had to send a message to me this morning asking what 'i' was saying.

Please think more in future.
Regards, Newvox

Hi Chris! Thank you for informing us. I hope Louis will take along Closed gone Fishing to the concerts (as far as there are any copies left).

I´m really curious as you wrote that it´s different from the recordings with John...

Just thought it strange, i was the only one in trouble for stateing facts.
Facts that were proved right, and could of been more helpful than fan speculation.

Agreed it is just entertainment though.
No harm done, just last weeks old news.

The album is available on the tour. I'm enjoying it *very* much. But then I'm a fan of The Lilac Time, so what do you expect!

Something further away from the JF&LG sound it would be hard to find. It's surely deserving of a commercial release - many of the tracks are good enough for regular airplay.

Well, I for one would like to heap praise on Louis' album. 'Closed Gone Fishing' is really good! It's exactly what I expected, some good wholesome tunes, a bit folky/skiffly/bluesy, with real instruments. Great cover of 'Space Age Love Song' by AFOS. Some really funny lyrics and sond titles - 'Captain Scarlet Silver Surfer' anyone? The perfect album to listen to in the garden as the sun sets. I think this proves that the band mentality still exists around JF and LG, but they're free to do their own thing.
Not a great review, I know, but this is an great album - EVERYBODY BUY IT!

It wasn't sold at the Cardiff show yesterday, just the 'Closed, Gone Fishing' album. Louis didn't mention it when we were chatting either. Maybe Rob knows something about it.

Cerise: I'll keep it simple and on topic, so one group i have not seen here (or though it maybe of been)is Circusgirls.
The group that Louis played with in between work with John. Theres a third album to be released, but i think Louis played on there first only.

Yes, we know of Louis' Circus Girls stuff (have to say I prefer his solo album though!), but the Deep Electric Blue EP doesn't appear to be it. It looks to be a solo EP.

Thanks cerise, i did see the 'deep electric blue' yesterday. But then i thought better not say too much. <img border="0" alt="[Shake head]" title="" src="graemlins/shakehead.gif" />
Yes i thought 'closed gone fishing' was good but miles away from the JF/LG sound, but circusgirls is even farther.

Solid information is fine - it's allusions to gossip or possible happenings that cause us hassle. If you have confirmed info that no-one's mentioned yet and you want to post it, go ahead - but please don't just hint at things, as we end up with a flurry of emails asking for info. Ta. wink

Deep Electric Blue is a CD/EP that Louis has produced - the sound is more akin to the material he creates with John. It's certainly not like Closed Gone Fishing. In the time honoured fashion, I will post more information (including how to obtain copies) just as soon as I can... wink

A few thing I'd like to know out of interest - there are no real sleeve notes or acknowledgements on 'Closed Gone Fishing', so who are the other musicians on it. Louis does thank a few people, including jolly old Dennis, but who was involved in the albums making?

Gosh, "newvox" really delights in his insider knowledge and exciting secrets, doesn't he? :rolleyes:

Does Louis actually WANT anyone to here this album he has "released"?
Or is it just some demos he's done and has given copies to a few friends?
How can an album be described "out" and "released" if it is not available for sale in any online or high street or mail order retail outlet?

My guess - and it's only a guess, mind you - is that some if not all of these 150+ live recordings of Ultravox were made at Ultravox gigs laugh

Feline 1: I never said 'circusgirls' or 'deep electric blue' was 'insider'. Cerise ASKED me, because i dont talk of standard info or other no more if i think it will cause problems. I think you see what i mean :rolleyes:

Chappie: When i said that it was months ago, and it meant that the way i was being treated by 'some' on the forum, i would not bother anymore. It was also not just UV/JF/MU, it was also billy currie and numan.
Since then, it is now 500+ items, but due to some problems today i still see no reason to be as helpful as i intended.
And that is not directed at yourself or F1.

Newvox - I don't know whether you're talking about problems on the forum (I assume you are) but if anyone's causing you problems from here you should contact a Moderator or the site owner. That's what others do.

No, it won't cause problems, go ahead if you want to talk about it. As I said to you yesterday, solid info that you want to talk about or give details of is absolutely fine. It's hints at 'insider gossip' or knowing something you won't talk about 'because it might cause hassle' that actually does cause us hassle, as we then get emails asking what it is - and we often have no idea what you're alluding to.

So if there's something you want to share, carry on! laugh

SiW: What now!

On page 2, post 2 of mine dated 16th may i agreed to forget that there was a problem when i DID STATE PROVEN FACTS. On page 2, post 3 of mine some FOUR MONTHS LATER i only stated that i dont say anything no more because of the problem last time.
I never asked for people to bring up the past, that i forgot and forgave for. Neither did i say i wanted to say anything new, or hint that i may do.

How can i be wrong in may for stating facts AND wrong today for saying nothing and not even wanting to tease people with info.

You dont need to ask me nicely to STFU, i dont want to say anything.

This site is becoming insane!

Not long before the 40 questions and 40 misunderstandings is reached. confused

The album isn't being sold on the tour, but there is a 6 track e.p. - "Deep Electric Blue" (Black Spot - no catalogue number!).
Tracks are:-
1. We Are Miracles
2. Strange Individuals
3. Pure And Simple
4. Blind Anorexic
5. Return Of The Red Eye
6. Short Walk, Long Shadow

I haven't had chance to play it yet - but they are being sold on the tour for £6 each - don't know how many have been made, but i does say 'Limited Edition' - so I suspect about 500 copies as a total guess.
The CD is packaged in a DVD type case with "Art-work and Manufacture by MPDIa + LaB" - the last bit is guessed as it's unclear what the letters are?????

There's no address given on the sleeve - either web or postal.

If there's any left at the end of the tour, perhaos they should be sold on this site? - mine's not for sale as I got Louis to sign my copy. smile

Rob says that Louis only brought 20 on tour with him, but I'm not sure if that's the limit of what he made up (I think it's a CD-R, isn't it?). I would think it's a much smaller number than 500, anyway.

Just to clarify, Newvox - are we talking bootlegs, or official recordings made by the band? I presume the former, since you surely wouldn't give out copies of material owned by Island or EMI.

SiW, Sorry im talking about something i still did not want to talk about.

Yes Cerise it is all numan/uv/jf/mu/bc bootlegs, made up of live,studio outtakes,demos,pre show soundchecks,alt. mixes,dvds,covers,etc.
It is nothing official, but i never accept money (or anything) in return for copys of them.
There are fan and industry recordings, the industry ones are only given to other industry people. So 99% stays off ebay etc.

I thought the last bit said "Media Lab", but I could be wrong. Also, the album was on sale at The Scala. Maybe they all sold that night.

I don’t see what the huge fuss is about -
pretty much every band in the world makes rough-and-ready tapes of live gigs, of rehearsals, of rough mixes, demos of song ideas, etc etc....
what finally gets released as finished product is usually about 5% of what’s ever gone down on "tape" (or whatever format).

John won’t be any different -- obviously this sort of stuff exists!

Well to be completely honest, that's your own fault. You can't just hint at stuff like that in a forum full of inquisitive fans and not expect questions.

My view is this. If you have it and it isn't commercially available then it's up to share.

Your problem so far is that you've effectively said 'Hey I've got all this neat stuff that you'd probably kill for and it's mine'.

No good to anyone, which is why you get the comments you do. Best thing you can do Ken is to tell people exactly what you have and offer it about or just shut up about it.

Choice is yours, but don't be surprised at the outcome if you decide to carry on as normal.

Without wanting to get dragged into this, I'd have to agree with Si.

When I joined this forum three years ago I didn't have much other than enthusiasm, but enough to trade items with one or two generous people. It doesn't take long for material to accumulate, and I think most of us now share material and/or information about the band with each other to keep everyone in the loop. Everyone has been more than generous and very excited when other things become available.
What goes around comes around as far as I see it.

This is, as far as I know, the definitve site for Foxx/Ultravox information and that's why dedicated fans come and ask and genuinely want to get hold of things.
In the interests of the archive as a whole, it only makes sense that there is a central 'list' of things and I for one send snippets of info to Rob and Cerise whenever I find it. Doesn't everyone??

OK, its information and not material. But all these bootlegs will have set lists for concerts that we have not otherwise have details on. That's valuable information, apart from the other obvious asset of being a rare recording of the artist.

So I have to say it does seem a little unfair whenever people announce they have material but, for whatever reason, don't say what it is. This is what leads to people getting annoyed, and even questioning the 'existence' of such things.
No-one doubts it, but its a natural reaction when you get only a glimpse into a passing window...
It doesn't have to be stated on the Forum even, but in private emails to those that manage and run the sites and the archive.
This is the way it works in here as I understand it.

If people have stuff they are not willing/able to share then its probably best not to say anything about it at all.
We should respect that too.

Hi Martin...I was referring to "Closed. Gone Fishing". Either way, I'm pleased to have got hold of both the CD's Louis was selling.

well,
the problem with all the rough recordings that artists make, of everything from Big Gigs at Wembley, to that time when they woke up at 3am with an idea for a riff in their heads and "had to get it down" but when they listening back the next morning it was rubbish anyways... (etc etc)
is that they are seldom "release quality" and may actually sound wick, and many artists therefore don't *want* lots of people listening to them! They were only ever intended for personal use, and artists don't want them criticised by members of the public - very often, the average listener won't understand the limitations of the recording and will just judge it like it was meant to be "finished" or "polished", and conclude that the artist was deficient in some way.

Now of course, you could argue that for the hardcore fan, they will just be thrilled to hear any obscure stuff and won't malign it - but especially in this Interweb filesharing age, there's many things that an artist would be mortified to have plastered all over the interweb.

So, it's really a case of respecting the artist's wishes, in my opinion.
Some artists may be happy to let such stuff circulate - others may be mortified.
I don't know what John's position is.

Aside from this, there are legal implications - generally, all the songs will be copyrighted under the artists' publishing deal, and can't legally be "mechanically reproduced" without a license from MCPS.
Strictly speaking, the songwriter has signed a legal contract both with their publisher and with MCPS, and so (for instance), to the pedantic letter of the law, John Foxx *can't* even say "fine, make a copy of that time I sang Endlessly in the bath onto a dictaphone", since he has transferred the administration of the mechanical rights for the song to MCPS for a period of until 70 years after his own death!

...
...
...in other words, go easy on people and don't pressure them to swap this stuff as if it was some kind of moral right! Cos it isn't.

Without also wanting to get dragged into this, I'll agree with Birdsong!

There have been a few previous occasions where this kind of 'insider' information has been hinted at, on albums, recordings whatever, as if to wet our fanatical appetites, but then no more information is 'allowed'.

So I'd rather hot have any 'hints' and wait for official word from Rob or Cerise, if it's something due for release.

I didn't know about Louis' albums - I didn't see any at Sheffield but I didn't look. Now I'm curious and wish I had!

Good post feline 1.

It's very easy as a hardcore fan to give into the temptation of bootlegs or rare recordings of your favourite artists etc. But 9 times out of 10, you get them, they're rubbish quality, but interesting to hear, then you never play them again. That's often how it is for me - it's nice to have it but do I really need it?

ALL bootlegs, live or demos are theft. Some artists are more relaxed about it than others. But it is a good point about respecting the wishes of an artist.

A lot of recordings are the sort of things that were rough demos or whatever that the artist in question never wanted anybody else to hear other than themselves - when that's the case then it is unfair to distribute it.

If I'd done a rough design for a job that somebody else got hold of and used, I would be horrified, if it was something that was unfinished or that I wasn't happy with. It's no different with music.

Here's a story.
I used to be a regular on Simple Minds' official forum (when it existed) a few years back, and they must be one of the most bootlegged bands in history. Discs were being swapped like wildfire, in particular their unreleased 1984 demos for Sparkle In the Rain.

Coincidentally I had acquired them prior to all that, without knowing what they were - and I thought they were some of the best instrumental demo-type music I'd heard in a long time. Fantastic. Word got round though, and demand was high for those recordings – to the point where Jim Kerr actually put some kind of rant in his online journal stating his unhappiness of the 'theft' of these recordings.

Brilliant through they were, the band felt that they had been stolen from them, as they remained personal, never iintended for release.

Of course I'd made the mistake of swapping them with a fan, then was inundated with swap requests. After Kerr's journal entry and never copied the disc again.

Closed Gone Fishing is a very well made album. And it have absolutely NOTHING to do with the stuff of John & Louis.

I'm totally surprised about the CD . I like it.

I wished I have a chance to get the Electric Blue E.P.

After I had some listens more to Closed Gone Fishing I have to admit this is not a good album.

THIS IS A GREAT ALBUM!!!!! ha

I love it more and more the more I listen to it.

There's some points in Louis music which remembers me of Calexico and Blur.

A funny album - a pleasure to listen to!

VERY WELL MADE LOUIS!!! wink

I'm owning this now, and liking what I hear.
It's not my usual taste (but then I'm not sure what is) - but this album has made me smile so thats a result.
Simple songs, quirky arrangements and just damn good fun.
Keeps on reminding me of Eno's "Before and After Science" (esp 'Bridges 5, 6 and 7')without some of the pretentions, and like some bits of early Bowie with the edges smoothed off.
Is this anything like the material Stephen Duffy has made?
I heard bits of Dylan in there too - its really quite clever in a deceptively simple way, so I must recommend it to anyone who can find a copy.
There's a song called "Satellite" which includes the line 'Deep Electric Blue' and a song called "Shady O'Grady" which I think is the one with birdsong on it and begins in a oblique Foxxlike way.

Good stuff.
We should all step outside the boxx now and then

Remains to be seen how often I'll play it

The title says its all, as if Louis has switched off his synths and drum machines and has gone fishing with an acoustic guitar.

Psychedelia is present in this collection and does highlight Louis talents but the album wasn´t what I wished as a fan of electronica. I´m really after the Circus Girls stuff which I believe is more like Psychedelia meets electronica. Emailed Alex H, let´s see if he has some copies left of Deep Electric Blue EP.

I believe Circus Girls has released 2 albums in the past. I´ve added these to my wish list.

I´m waiting for the Impossible now! wink
