    Why was this left off? It's very good! Or did it come after?

    The MURPHY reviewed the situation and decided that we were NOT WORTHY! It's certainly unreasonable

    I think it was just a demo that leaked.

    Unless I'm mistaken, Queen R specifically said that she didn't release Off & On because "it sounds a bit like the music from Grandstand" :basil:

    @Tisch and @Iguana - if you're only familiar with the big Moloko singles, I'd recommend trying their Things To Make and Do and (most importantly) Statues albums - both feature hot dance moments but also some gorgeous slower stuff, and Roisin gets to show her vocal range on them.

    Cool cool! I plan to play them and some solo stuff at 'work' tomorrow. I was never the biggest fan of Moloko as a 10 year old but I reckon time will change that.

    Yes that whole album changed my opinion of her (I wasn't huge on Moloko either)

    staying in the b-side sphere I think her cover of Slave to Love hits a spot too

    My planned Moloko/Roisin delve has been postponed due to a Kylie emergency. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
