Want to hear it straight from the Horse's Mouth? Ask your question here.
So I guess this is before and after Hammersmith …
Wullie: No vacancies.
Don Ramsey: Yes, she was.
Michael Wolf: As you know by now, we survived the rigors. I don't find performing hard to do at all. It's all the other stuff that goes with it.
Gareth Rowell: Glad it helped.
Scott MacNicholl: Noted.
Bruce: Ever considered a duet with Marianne Faithful? I like Marianne a lot, but it's never come up.
There's a lot of mail wishing us well at Hammersmith. Thanks for the support.
Greg Joyce: There was a lot of print. I saw a lot of it. Vanessa Cotton, our publicist, is making us up publicity books, so if I didn't see something I will eventually.
Todd Seager loves 'Great Escape'.
Alan Richmond: Sure she was excited.
Kerri Fraser: Uninformed.
Clyde Hartman: Baseball's one of those circles I got into and got out of.
Ed: I've no idea.
Phyl: Don't give up anything. I don't.
Pat: I've no idea.
Roger from CT: ' 'Arms 'n' Legs' unbelievable! In normal radio days, regular radio play would have shot this to the top.' Bought and sold.
Jim Wysocki: I like a lot of them.
Pat is really enjoying 'Girl From the Office.'
Louis Wilkes: MTH decide against TV.
Sherry: Hi Sherry, Rosbrook's working in Boston. Still chipper as ever.
Steve Daniels: 'Man Overboard' a killer.
P. Mills: No idea.
Tomas: The great thing about Mick Jones is if the radiator sounds good - it goes on the record. Great energy and imagination.
Martyn Sheard says the BBC used 'Girl from the Office'. They were interviewing Nigel Havers about his new show, 'Lunch Monkeys.' Good - Oh.
Nick Allsopp: 'Art work's superb on 'Man Overboard'. I love the mood of this album, but with Vera Lynn at No. 1, I think musical tasted in this country has had it.'
Mike: 'Got 'Man Overboard' and love it. I'm a car listener and it's overtaken Richmond Fontaine - ace.'
Francis L: 'You've done it with 'Man Overboard' Every song is memorable.'
Matt Nojonen: See - it may never happen!
Dann Sebald: ' 'Great Escape' has a small interlude in the middle - something new to you?' Not really - it happens on another track on this same album. It's interesting if you get something odd in there.
Jonathan Bedford: 'Congrats on the new masterpiece.' OK!
Brendan: 'Seems to be a lot of sea, river, water, ships imagery in your songs. Coming from land locked Shropshire - where do you think it comes from?' Imagination.
Jeff Williams: ' 'Man Overboard' best one yet.'
Bruce: It was just a kind of rap I did at the Rainbow Theatre in London some nights. We called it 'hecklers ten seconds'. Some twit would always shout an obscenity and we'd get his friends to haul him down to the front for a severe beer dowsing.
Drew Hosey: 'Do you watch 'Desperate Housewives'?' N.
Lynne: 'New album awesome.'
Francis L: 'Every time I listen to 'Man Overboard' it gets better.
Mike in T.O.: Sid
Martin: 'Did you ever record with Joe Meeks?' No.
John Semi: Wasn't me.
Mike Costanzo: ''Unravelling' M.O.
Thomas Mulready: It was a mad house, sorry it didn't work out.
Andy Baker: 'M.O. another pearler.'
Pete: I've met Graham Parker only once in Chicago. When he was having his hits in the UK - I was in the US. Very nice and unassuming sort of chap.
Nick Allsopp: 'M.O. superb - quality all over the place. Superb production. One criticism is the album's not being promoted well here at all.' It's kind of weird Actually - I've never met anyone from New West - either here or in the UK. I did my bit - I was kind of hoping they would do their bit.
Mark Romeo: 'Shrunken Heads was great, but Man Overboard is unbelievable.'
Eric: Check out 'Overnight Angels.'
Now we get to Monmouth…….
Adrian Seeley: 'Just got back from Monmouth. Man that was great. What a stonking little band - be at Hammersmith Thursday.'
Jane Holmes: Whoopsy.
Peter Vogel: 'Great new album. Bought it in Scotland on holiday.'
Seth Purvin: 'Jokerman'
Tom Drnach: 'I love the new CD.'
Karl: I just don't feel qualified to judge another person's music. Believe me, I get a lot of these and I never do them.
Joe Basile: Quoting my Obama comments in the last Horse's Mouth. A mostly right-winger Joe is now on our side of the fence. Alright!
Phil Ash: Monmouth - Saturday: 'Brilliant warm up gig - just sounded like the band had never been apart.'
Pat: All was well.
Eric Hemphill: 'M.O. splendid. Loved it from first listen. Bought it in Moscow region. Is it true about dancing car membership?' Yes.
Kim N: 'In 'Girl from the Office' - did the guy from the factory sign up to the dance studio because of her?' Yep.
Peter Swettenham: Peter dear boy. I only got this now. Thursday was a tad naff monitor wise, but Friday onwards was happening on stage. I'm sorry I missed you. I went out straight from the stage because of the vocal situation.
John Hollingshead: Monmouth - 25th - was an absolute blast.
Mitch Marcus: 'I would feel much better as a musician if you would possibly make a mistake some time. New stuff - 'Man Overboard' is lovely. Pure joy.' We make plenty of mistakes, but we cover 'em up.
Rebecca Walker: Only got this now Rebecca (after the event) - sorry.
Lisa: Same as above.
Tom Lefaivre: 'Will Mott tour the States?' No. Mott will never tour anywhere. That's not to say they won't play together again on one offs here and these.
Andy: 'Love the new record - is it true there could be a new MTH album? That's just a rumor.
Kevin Dennis: 'How does the MTH set list come about?' Actually it was pretty easy. We all decided on the same list of songs. It was just a question of what order to put them it.
Chris Hartman: 'No question - here's to you.' Thanks.
Ed: Too late.
Brian Ager: You saw the best two nights. Monday was fine as well - bit tired by Tuesday. As for how it happened sales wise? It just what happened. There was the availability of the dates to consider; there were a lot of things to consider. As for seats at night one and two becoming available - it's pretty obvious; some touts block bought and got caught when we added the extra dates. I said at the time - wait - we added dates until they couldn't screw you.
Steve abs: 'What a fantastic night for Mott. Voice superb (blush). Great atmosphere. 'The Journey' - sensational.'
Pete Lewis says there's a spoof on Cycle Social webside (co.uk/video) it's called 'All the Way From Lands End'.
Bill Yarnold: 'I just had the best evening of my life at Hammersmith Odon on October 1st.'
Simon Pearce: 'Hammersmith on Thursday - great and emotional - can't imagine how it was for your guys.' We weren't happy on the Thusday, but we fixed it by the Friday. Hell of a crowd.
Pat: 'Do you see your songs as your children?' Well, your kids are in your life. Songs are what I do, but yes, in a sense, they're all my babies. I brought them into this world and can take 'em out!
Geoff Bryant: 'Went to Hammersmith Friday and going again tonight. Saturday: Loved last night. Really great. Why no DVDs?' Because we thought the DVD deals stank.
Kirk: 'Loved every bit of it.'
Richard Cornacchio: 'Mott still the best rock band on the planet. Can't wait to see you do live M.O.'
