The Man Who Told Everything Live

Thanks to John for sending in the above video of Doves performing the rarely heard The Man Who Told Everything in Bradford. Whilst the video is not the best you will ever see, the audio is excellent. Cheers John! Good to hear this one done live again.

Whilst I’m at it.. check out this cover version of the same track. Very cool!

This reminds of a conversation I had in the UK, somebody suggested that maybe we should put together an album of Doves covers done by fans. So if you think you would be interested in doing a Doves cover then let me know. It would not be for profit.. Either it would be a free download album or I could look into possibly going in with a charity where we could put up a donation link so any money goes straight to them. So if there is any interest, give me a shout at You don’t need to submit anything right away, just let me know if you would like to submit a track for the lp. Then we can look into deadline and all that stuff asuming there is enough songs..

PS: My favourite fan cover of any song: The Who’s Baba O’Riley on piano.

Here It Comes

Its the calm before the storm here. Later this week I will posting the results of the poll I set-up last year asking you all to name your top five favourite doves songs.
