More Eden

Thanks to Adam for the above atmospheric picture from Eden. Another review of the Eden show, this time from never enough notes who seemed to enjoy the show abit more than the this is Cornwall reviewer did..

Doves have some hard work to do: When the gig was announced Mumford & Sons were still emerging and Doves, with their solid following and previous storming set at the Eden Sessions in 2002, were a steadfast finishing band. And although the crowd is still up for it when they take the stage, it is clear that many are Doves virgins.

The band grab the audience well to start; Jimi Goodwin’s memorable voice and the moody and atmospheric music is the perfect soundtrack for the sun setting over the stunning Eden Project scenery. The band have worked hard on this ‘greatest hits’ tour and put on a good show with dramatic visuals including some interesting videos, my favourite being the ‘hoodies’ filmed for Black and White Town. The band relies heavily on the crowd being right there with them and affectionately coining the audience ‘Edeonions’, Goodwin manages to gain friends in most of them, especially when he offers to pay any council fines if the sound techs cranked up the volume.

Check out the official Eden Sessions blog here, for a short review of Doves set & pictures.

A few of you have wrote in asking about the status of the Eden download. Latest from the Doves Live Store..

We are expecting final approval from the band very shortly, as soon as we have it we will ship the CD’s and downloads.

Finally, work has started on the Echoes In The Alleyway microsite. Expect a full launch sometime late August ready for the album to be made available at the site early October. I have already received 9 tracks for the album so far, the quality is fantastic. Some really talented artists involved. I’m sure you will enjoy their take on some of your favourite Doves tunes. Tracks not dared to be covered yet include.. The Fear, Pounding & Words.

Modern Roadie

Abit of a blast from the past, but some of you may recall a Doves keyboard roadie kept a wee blog going during the tours in 2005. Anyhow I came across it again today, good to see its still up. Some interesting reading especially if you saw some of the shows that year. Shame the photos are no longer up. Give it a read..

This is Cornwall posted a review of the show at their site, though I suspect the reviewer was there for Mumford & Sons and not so much doves!

Lee asks where did it go wrong for the Doves Eden Session?

ON ENTERING the Eden Project on Friday night and spying CDs of Doves’ headline set would be on sale straight afterwards, I made a note to self to buy one.

On leaving I avoided the stall like the plague.

Where did it all go wrong?

It certainly didn’t help that Mumford & Sons were supporting – arguably the band of now, this gang of waistcoat-wearing public schoolboys have updated the sound of The Pogues and Men They Couldn’t Hang for the Twitter generation.

With their sense of zeitgeist many believed they should have headlined despite the lack of songs. It appeared Doves thought they should have headlined too.

The Mancunian three-piece who stormed the Sessions back in 2002 were sadly lacking.

Always devoid of character, they previously made up for it by powerful gigs of emotional firepower, halfway between Elbow and The Verve.

Relevant Magazine

The bimonthly christian mag Relevant Magazine has a two page spread featuring Doves in their latest issue. They recently spoke to Jez about Doves career upto now and the upcoming hiatus. You wont learn a great deal new, but a different change of pace from the usual music press.

Echoes In The Alleyway

I asked you all to vote for the title of the cover album project. Over 400 of you voted and by one vote seriously.. the winning title is Echoes In The Alleyway.

Echoes In The Alleyway: A Tribute To Doves will hopefully be available to download early October. All the artists have been given a deadline, then we will go from there. I have had a few folk ask this past week if they can still take part. You can, but the deadline of September 1st to get the music to me will not change.

Expect lots more news on the album over the coming weeks. The album will have its own microsite which should launch sometime later this month.
