a_whisper12:28am: Magic Numbers/Hal rare vinyl

Thought some of you might be interested in checking out a rare vinyl from when the Magic Numbers toured with Hal. The vinyl has The Magic Numbers 'Anima Sola' on the a-side and Hal's 'Keep Love as Your Golden Rule' on the b-side.

It's very cheap at the mo, they only made a few and they won't be making anymore so get it while you can!

check out the link for more info on the artwork etc


thanks :)

elegantly_bored2:17pm: If anyone doesn't yet know, HAL have covered John Lennon's Mind Games for the free CD with the current issue [dated November 2005] of Q magazine. If anyone cannot get hold of this magazine, let me know and I can upload a wma file of the song for you, but if you can get hold of the actual magazine you really should.

elegantly_bored11:56am: HAL news - cancelled gigsCollapse )
I hope none of you are affected by this, unfortunately I am seeing as how Birmingham was the only gig on that tour that I could have feasibly gone to. I'm a bit gutted, to say the least.

elegantly_bored4:23pm: Just to let you all know...
You may have noticed that I Sat Down/Don't Come Running failed to chart in the UK top 75 yesterday. However, this was not because of low sales but due to a pricing issue.

elegantly_bored7:42pm: Win tickets to a secret HAL gig!

Unfortunately I won't be able to enter, being under 18, which sucks because I actually live in Birmingham, where the gig will be taking place. But I thought I'd post it to the group so the rest of you who might not have seen it can have a go :)

_half_light_3:48pm: Hey, I just joined.. cos I've fallen in love with Hal. I went to see them in Brighton when they were supporting The Magic Numbers, and I sort of knew who they were... Since then though, my love has only grown! I love the new single, but my favourite is Worry About The Wind... *sigh* Love it. Yes, ummm.... CANNOT WAIT for the album - I pre-ordered it and Play.com told me they sent it yesterday so I'm hoping it might actually arrive before Monday! Hehe.

My photos from the Brighton gig are here:
I would post the actual photos but they're huge, so this way you can browse at your leisure :)
