Apologies for the lack of ‘action’ on FHJ recently – time wasn’t on my side.

But I’d like to say welcome back with, well, the promo of ‘Welcome Back’ funnily enough.

Released in the Summer of 2004 this was a single track promo CD sent to hip and cool radio stations for a wee spin before the release of fourth album ‘Weightlifting’. The black sheep of the album, ‘Welcome Back’ sits a bit out of place with the other album tracks, but it’s still a belter.

As you can see, there’s not much to it, just the plain old CD and a photocopied insert.

It’s rare!

…of world domination? Mmmm, perhaps not.

One of my earlier posts will give you all the info you need on the Westwood One Radio Networks.

This is another rare CD which includes the tracks ‘Iceberg’ and ‘Remember Phil’. The latter, as you well know, is in fact ‘Twisted And Bent’ – but when this acoustic session was recorded the song had no official title. It is introduced by Frank as a ‘world exclusive’ and is rather good.

Both tracks eventually appeared on the 7-inch vinyl bootleg which accompanied some copies of the Autopsy fanzine. More on both of these here and here.

Here’s an early article from Rolling Stone magazine.

At the end of the article you’ll read Mr Livingston extolling the virtues of the English language and his allegiance to the word Autopsy.

This article was of course, the inspiration behind Sarah Frederiksen’s fanzine of the same name, which you can read about here.

This Japanese release of second album ‘I’ve Seen Everything’ will be a rare sight to most as not too many of them were pressed.

The packaging is almost identical to the standard US and European releases apart from the obvious record label details. It also comes with a fold-out Japanese lyric sheet.

Very nice it is too.
