    Default Tears for Fears reunite

    After reuniting for a weekend benefit, Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, the original Tears for Fears, are heading back to the studio to record their first album together in more than a decade.




    More Tears, More Fears

    I love the hits they had. The songs are insinuated into my happy childhood memories. The videos, on the other hand...
    The video for "Head Over Heels" featuring gorgeous girl turned librarian, a chimp, and flying books and finally culminating in a chorus of "La La's" sung by a diverse (but not wildly diverse) collection of young and old people against a black backdrop, while not as bad as some videos that made the rounds at the time, is responsible for me (at the age of seven, mind) throwing heavy hardback books in the air and at times getting hit in the head with them. Nothing like entertainment at my house, eh?
    I'm sure getting knocked in the head repeatedly at that age explains a lot of my behavior. (Well, I hope it does, anyway.)

    Was it art? Was it walls? Was it your wife's toenails? Details, man! Details!

    It was walls if I recall correctly.

    Default Nothing very exotic

    Painting our living room was such a traumatic experience that it has taken us 4 years to move to the next painting project: the hallway.

    Before and after shots. Yes, we lived with stark white walls for almost 5 years



    Here's the "after" shot. Scraped all of the hurty texturizing off of the walls (blech!). A pale milk color for the trim, jute for the wainscotting and entrance doors, and the walls are a very warm sandy color called sand fossil (all are a little washed out in the photo, but you get the idea). Arts & crafts switch plates and outlet covers. Replaced the awful brass fixtures with A&C-style patina'd copper. Still painting the door trim, but 30 hours of work later, it's almost done!

    Default Some of their very early stuff was good.

    Pale Shelter was good. Change. A few of their later songs were good, too. Sowing the Seeds. Break it Down Again. They are a little self-absorbed, but they offer at least a slightly interesting break from average pop stuff.

    You did a great job! What's sitting on top of your breakfront?
    This weekend we are painting dark 70's paneling. I am going to need the happiest, most upbeat music to do that.

    Well, WeiB, don't want to be unkind, and it's all well and good.. but who cares!! It's hardly momentus news is it? It's not like the Pixies or Dexy's reformation news.. like, relevant bands..

    Pale Shelter was alright though. Better than the Thomson Twins with that weird looking girl, and two weireder looking geezers in.!

    Default Re: I'm sure you can all see the old familiar pattern forming here.....

    Before I start, I love my north american readers and the time I've spent there.
    The following bands do not register in the minds of average-age ( 30 -40?) Smiths fans in the UK.
    Duran duran, , depeche mode, a flock of seagulls, tears for fears, the thomson twins. None of them escape finger-pointing ridicule.
    I've left out the cure because they maybe, just maybe, don't quite fit in with this grouping.
    I was away during the 80's and paid no attention , generally speaking, to what was going on. It's only since then that I've learned of this enormous difference between Smiths fans in the UK and the US.
    There's a certain irony that all these bands are British as well. I, for one, don't get it. I'm simply stating a fact.
    But my north american readers should be aware that we point at these bands and laugh very loudly.
    As the posts from established Moz-solo regulars like PD, Johnny, and Ruff have already indicated.
    It truly is a most perplexing mystery.
    For some reason, something happened somewhere over the atlantic to bring about this COMPLETELY different mind-set.
