I'm kinda interested in Moloko albums (and Overpowered), for how much you would be selling all 5?
Agreed! And, I'm so glad she's doing this. Her Hairless Toys videos were brilliant demonstrations of what an interesting audio-visual artist she is.
Also, thanks for the introduction to Fat White Family. Really digging their sound (feels a bit The Horrors-meets-Clinic) and judging by their most recent video, they probably got on well with Roisin. Just the right balance of oddball weirdness and visual flair on a budget...
Agreed haha! As much as I love the videos for Overpowered and LMK, HT videos are the ones that have more rewatch value for me.
And now I feel very encouraged to check out Fat White Family's stuff, thanks!

The Roisin directed video is out:
Ha! Love it. Hope she directs some more.
Did I miss anything? Is she releasing new music? Not that she has to in order to tour, but wouldn't it be amazing?
Lol don't really know what's comming, but I'm glad she's been booked for those festivals, and solo dates.

Abour 'Statues' LP reissue : https://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/roisin-murphy-overpowered-being-reissued-on-vinyl.793944/
Me blissing out to Over and Over (it's over, all over).
Oh my god. Finally!!! I’ve wanted this since on vinyl since it’s original release!!!
Recently Roisin appeared in John Doran's podcast The Best Of Times, available on Apple.
She was also interviewed by Dazed along with Fat White Family about their collaboration. Love how enthusiastic she is about them - not gonna lie, I was encouraged to check out their stuff because of Roisin. Not everything they do is my cup of tea, but they are rather intriguing. Supportive queen!
So I just got the Overpowered reissue vinyl today. I'm very disappointed with the fact it's not a gorgeous gatefold... It's quite nothingy design wise... Still love it though, great colours, beautiful colours.
So earlier today I finally got to listen to the Best Of Times podcast and apparently we should expect the new DJ Parrot produced single in spring. April is coming to an end so it seems we'll have to wait till May. Roisin described it as a "disco power house" tune.
It was a lovely chat, she quite extensively discussed the final days of Moloko among other interesting topics. She was very complimentary about Calvin Harris and Cathy Dennis, saying the latter's attitude in the studio stayed with her to this day. She said herself that she was probably mad not to include the stuff they recorded together on Overpowered. A highly recommended listen.
ÑNN @ this revisionism.
^The smash that never was.
What's been the biggest disappointment of your year so far?
I did some songs with Cathy Dennis for the Roisin Murphy album but then Roisin decided not to use them because she is a bit mental. She must be crazy because the songs are really good and Cathy Dennis is obviously legendary. That was a disappointment partly it might also have taken some of the Kylie heat off me for a while. That's all got a bit ridiculous.
It would probably take someone a bit more famous than Roisin Murphy to take 'the Kylie heat' off you.
Really, I'd just like it if people knew that I sometimes work with people who aren't Kylie. I'm not her little production bitch!
What are you going to do with the Roisin cast-offs?
WELL! I'm not allowed to do anything with them for legal reasons. I now have two backing tracks that are completely wasted. Geez! What else Roisin — are you going pay my bill now, you twat? She fucking cost me all sorts of money and now she's not even using the songs. Honestly, the world of pop music – I don't like it at all.
...um what an idiot. I'm glad I unstanned Calvin ages ago.
