maybe Taylor Hawkins got it wrong, or he forgot, and they actually recorded 2 Andrew Gold songs. Because that's what we've been talking about this week.

Any other hopes or expectations?

My top 3 for the Foos to cover would be:
Children of the Revolution
20th Century Boy
Solid Gold Easy Action.

I think it'll be the first of those, but I'd be happy with the other two. I just hope it's not Metal Guru - have never really liked that song for some reason.

Solid Gold Easy Action would be spectacularly funny given the rest of this thread. "Solid Gold" is the 7" title Dave told Marc Maron's WTF in Jan 2013.

I mean like I said the AG thing can still happen if they already recorded the songs months/years ago.

Yes of course - just that this doesn't appear to be it.

Jan 2013 (WTF) is getting a little far back too. Was there ever any later reference to it again? I would say with many artists something like that has probably been forgotten about 5 years later - but with Dave it's as likely to suddenly pop up a decade later when it was long written off as history

Oh and yes knew that the Neve was there at EastWest - just referencing Ursellli specifically calling out that it was in action. It smelt ridiculously of "old school cover" of some kind - which of course it still is.

Well they recorded 'Lonely Boy' in December 1999, and he's talked about AG a few times over the years so I think it's always something on his mind for sure. I doubt they would release the old version but it's surely plausible they recorded it again, and Slip Away, in the 2010s.

That's definitely the same project (Willner is the SNL guy Taylor references). And despite that article referencing Willner finishing up on it mid August, it's obviously been a longish process with the different artists. U2 in Sept and still going now, so I certainly doubt it will have any RSD relevance. In an interesting coincidence Jonesy himself references being pulled into recording three songs for it with Zak Starkey - and that he still hasn't been paid

Speaking of coincidences...
This is a very cool T.Rex interview with Tony Visconti from Classic Rock Sept 17:
https://www.pressreader.com/uk/class...81487866498224

At the end he says:
"You hear stuff on the radio now that sounds like them because people are recording a little more minimally again. I think every good rock band has the spirit of T.Rex in their DNA. Every one. You can hear it from Guns N' Roses to U2 to Foo Fighters. They all have a touch of T.Rex."

So I'm guessing that's an absolutely accidental reference to two of the bands asked to be involved lol.

I know it's always done to death but I'd like it to be Telegram Sam. I reckon they'd have killed that.

This is true - I got your reference to a lot of the RSD stuff being new releases of not just old songs but often old recording - or cleaned up and remixed old recordings. That's especially true for the deceased artists obviously where RSD is a great medium to slide out a 7 inch for the odd one or two tracks.

So they don't have to have been in a studio though the WTF did kinda give a feel that Dave wanted to re-record them, though he could just have meant finding time to look at the project overall was difficult.

As a sideways relevant thread:
Medium Rare was also a bunch of mainly pre-existing songs. But "Bad Reputation" and "This Will Be Our Year" were new recordings for it. When exactly were they recorded relative to 16th April 2011 release?

The former is unfortunately unknown, just assumed (perhaps wrongly) to have been in early 2011. The latter though we know was done at the ESP&G sessions.

So in fact you could be wholly on point there too (not saying you were suggesting it for this release though, just noting) all tracks could have been old in 2011 for MR as well - might have actually been no studio time involved.

Other random thought - I know it is done for a bunch of promo, advertising or contrib reasons, but it never makes sense to me to record just one song in a studio.

And there deff should be a Foo law that every time they are in one (regardless why they are there) they record 12 tracks even if 11 of them are just one take. Then every Christmas all the sessions get released as "Bah Foobug 20xx" vinyl box set on the store.

Sigh.. and then I woke up

I'll have to double check my notes but I think the 2011 assumption on the Thin Lizzy track is mostly due to the liner notes copyright dates. None of the other tracks make sense to be copyrighted to 2011 and whilst you could say they're just using the date first it was first published, they didn't do that for TWBOR, copyrighted to 2007. So yeah, the assumption is they did it quickly in early 2011, but until I can manage to talk to the right people to find out for sure, it's just a guess.

When it comes to things like this, and movie soundtracks, the bands time in the studio is usually paid for by the studio making the record, and so they only record the song they're contracted for.

I like the idea though! We definitely need more Foo music releases now singles are gone.

So clearly we need to pass a hat around and buy us some studio time for our bucket list album...right?

Yeah exactly - it's like - your dime for A sure, but hey while we're all here let's do B through L...

But oh the memes...

First it was Mentos... then how we laughed as the "throw away" Dirty Water water idea finally found its companion...

https://i.imgur.com/g5CULdC.jpg

Current album is still growing on me slowly. I loved some tracks right of (Make It Right especially), but it's never going to be my favourite. So ANY more studio time would be great - but the just record it idea hits me tenfold more when the best thing I've heard in last ten years was whipped together in no time in a hotel. Yes they were old tracks redone but still.

To be honest if there is a FF RSD release this year my hopes are for Songs From The Laundry Room II. A full album this time.
