New Model Army Revisited

...well it's been a long time coming. I have loads of the old NMA material on vinyl still and only some of the newer bits on CD plus scratched/jumping copies of "The Ghost of Cain" and "Thunder and Consolation" (teach me to pick them both up second hand off e-bay or somewhere...).

So, with the knowledge that a few years ago all the early LPs were rereleased in a remastered CD format with additional discs of rarities, remixes and b-sides from the period I've just hit Play, Amazon and the NMA Webstore and updated my NMA discography. It'll be nice to listen to the old albums again and also discover a new love for some of the tracks I may not have heard before.

I also ordered the Live DVD from 2003 that apparently has me in it quite a bit (or so I keep getting told by friends). It was only £8.99 on Play and it'd be worth it even without my guest appearences :p

New Model Army are one of those bands that I've loved from the first moment of listening to them as a teen back in 80's and have never fallen out of love with. Their live performances continually rank as some of the best shows I've ever been too and the lyrics and emotions they stir up are priceless.

I find it hard to believe they've been together for over 25 years now. Starts to make me feel a bit old...:p
