I know. :/ I read that and couldn't help thinking "oh my god NO, what have you DONE?!" Am glad it's just her international label and that she's not signed to them 100% though.

In other news, I bought the album (very seekrit business, don't tell anyone I told you) and it's super good! Going on sale for real tomorrow, so definitely go pick up a copy if you like her. :D There's some nifty bundles and stuff.

Just bumping this thread because of the awesomeness of Melissa and Amanda tweeting back and forth. I'm thinking it would be epic if they were to join forces in some sort of way!

In other news, I went to Melissa's show in Amsterdam a week ago and it was AMAZING. <3

While inconvenient for them, that really would be pretty amazing for us....

Maybe, webcast or not, somebody could just make a good recording?   :)

Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me?

I don't think she's terrible but also not incredibly interesting.
only a handful of 'resolved' songs in her repertoire.
Also she was in HOLE which had one good album and one dire poppy album
with more twiddle dee dee melodies than an Irish pub.

They actually shared a bed together, since Melissa had nowhere to sleep. And then Mr. Neil showed up and then they saw Malcolm MacLaren's funeral procession. Wait, is this is Weird Dreams thread?

After Hole imploded, I had a hard time finding anything to listen to with a powerful female vocalist until Dresden Dolls/AFP. And I will definitely check out the new OOOM.

I know.... why does phantasy have to bleed into reality so much? (or is it the other way around...)
