Edward LogoEdward Ball [Wed Feb 26 14:02:40GMT) said: "Nice to hear from you. I have no dates planned as such but I am perhaps going to do a support tour with Mike Scott and Nick Heyward, so I will see you then"

 

Edward LogoKatrina (Wed Feb 26 14:03:52GMT) said: " Hi Edward I managed to get a promo copy of the new lp and it is ace. question - why collaborate with so many others when your genius is so obvious"

 

Edward LogoAndrew Thomspson (Wed Feb 26 14:04:08GMT) said: "...The Nick Heyward?"

 

Edward LogoSimon (Wed Feb 26 14:05:54GMT) said: "Are there any dark secrets behind the title of your forth coming album Catholic Guilt?"

 

Edward LogoJem (Wed Feb 26 14:06:18GMT) said: "Any predictions for tonight's match?"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:06:27GMT) said: "Katrina How ya doing? Thank you for being so kind... I enjoy working with people like Martin Carr Andy Bell and Nick Heyward because I think they're the true geniuses. "

 

Edward LogoLiz (Wed Feb 26 14:06:28GMT) said: "Hi Ed, Really loved your album..."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:07:15GMT) said: "Andrew, the very self same Nick Heyward"

 

Edward LogoAndrew Thompson (Wed Feb 26 14:08:21GMT) said: "Ed, will you be using the Internet again?"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:09:10GMT) said: "Simon, Welcome aboard. I'm afraid there aren't any dark secrets on the album. I keep them all in the confession box of the Bromption Oratory Church. It's more about the 4 Angels of the Apocalypse who've made my hair fall out. Thanks for asking."

 

Edward LogoLIZ (Wed Feb 26 14:09:53GMT) said: "Hi this is David, i'm sitting with Liz and am more interested in Nick Heyward than you I have to confess but tell me, what was it you worked on with Nick. I'm his number one biggest fan and he's also my number one lust object too so I am dead jealous of you...."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:10:20 GMT), said: "How do Jem. Chelsea 4, Leicester 1. What do you reckon?"

 

Edward LogoAndrew Thompson (Wed Feb 26 14:10:38 GMT), said: "Did you see the Brits on TV last night? What did you think of the Spice girl in the red dress?"

 

Edward Logosimon (Wed Feb 26 14:12:15 GMT), said: "Hi Ed, 'Love is Blue' - is this purely about Chelsea or is love something that eludes you at the moment?"

 

Edward Logokatrina (Wed Feb 26 14:12:16 GMT), said: "hang on, aren't we meant to be talking about the fabulous sensitive Mr Ball, rather than the s**** g****! ? Ed, are you going to release Trailblaze as a single?"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:12:52 GMT), said: "Liz and David, How'ya doing you crazy cats! Nick is indeed ace and he helped me out on a song I wrote called 'Never Live to Love Again' which is the B-side of my next single 'The Mill Hill Self Hate Club'. Nick is certainly more talented than Richard in Bronski Beat!!!"

 

Edward LogoAndrew Thompson (Wed Feb 26 14:13:37 GMT), said: "Katrina, lighten up!!"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:14:17 GMT), said: "Andrew, thansk for your enquiry. I am very excited by this new technology that we are using today. Not even Elton John, Rod Stewart or A Flock of Seagulls have used the particular gizmo we're implementing today."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:15:56 GMT), said: "Andrew, I was at the Brits. Music was shite, but for different reasons I find her unbelievably attractive."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:17:08 GMT), said: "Katrina, Love Is Blue is a song for girls and for boys. It's a sad love song, so the girl's can get into it, and it's a song about Chelsea so the boys can sing the hell out of it at the Bridge."

 

Edward LogoLIZ (Wed Feb 26 14:17:28 GMT), said: "Where did the never live to love again come from? Were you unlucky in love or just going through a bad patch? And how can you possibly say that about Richard Coles of the Communards!! The man's a star (in my eyes at least)"

 

Edward LogoAndrew Thompson (Wed Feb 26 14:18:20 GMT), said: "Do you think there is a future for a live intenet link with the Brits"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:19:36 GMT), said: "Simon, it was a beautiful scene man. Giving flowers out to all those gorgeous women. It was tops."

 

Edward Logosimon (Wed Feb 26 14:19:46 GMT), said: "Ed, Waterloo Station ? Any proposals from the recipients of your blue roses?"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:20:49 GMT), said: "Liz/David, no I'm just going through a bald patch at the moment. But I'm bound to get better soon."

 

Edward Logokatrina (Wed Feb 26 14:21:46 GMT), said: "Ed, i raced back from work to see you at Waterloo, but at 6.45 you'd already gone! Sob! Do it again sometime please, as it was such a lovely gesture."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:22:04 GMT), said: "Andrew, (pause) Yes"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:22:59 GMT), said: "Simon, No Indecent Proposals, unfortunately. But a man can't give up hope."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:23:45 GMT), said: "Katrina, for you - anytime."

 

Edward LogoAndy Sutton (Wed Feb 26 14:25:12 GMT), said: "I have not heard your music, how would you best describe it?"

 

Edward LogoAndrew Thompson (Wed Feb 26 14:25:15 GMT), said: "How do you think the internet can affect the way you can communicate with audiences"

 

Edward Logokatrina (Wed Feb 26 14:25:45 GMT), said: "(blushing)...thanks."

 

Edward Logosimon (Wed Feb 26 14:25:56 GMT), said: "Ed, You never told me what my mum's star sign was! Keep guessing! Jonathan."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:26:44 GMT), said: "Liz, definitely discuss the Spice Girls' outfits which DON'T fit! Make it more glammy and glitzy."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:27:27 GMT), said: "Andy, sort of like words with tunes, kinda thing."

 

Edward Logopob (Wed Feb 26 14:28:26 GMT), said: "hi mr ball, are you enjoying yourself????"

 

Edward LogoAndy Sutton (Wed Feb 26 14:28:48 GMT), said: "Any particular style or not?"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:29:18 GMT), said: "Andrew, it'll probably be a good thing that gets better as it becomes a more natural form of communication."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:30:41 GMT), said: "Pob, how'ya doing. I'm having fucking ace time! Better than ever. Havin' a ball, in fact."

 

Edward Logokatrina (Wed Feb 26 14:30:54 GMT), said: "Ed, are you actually employed by Creation - except as an artiste - in any way shape or form?"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:31:54 GMT), said: "Andy, Just stylish...erm."

 

Edward Logopob (Wed Feb 26 14:32:00 GMT), said: "going to the match tonight???? villa, fan myself so love is 'claret and blue' i'm afraid..."

 

Edward Logosimon (Wed Feb 26 14:32:28 GMT), said: "Ed, Are there any plans for the guest artists on the album to appear live with you?"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:32:31 GMT), said: "Katrina, I used to work at Creation years ago but not any more."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:33:08 GMT), said: "Pob, Yes I am going to the match and Villa are alright too!"

 

Edward LogoPenelope Tree (Wed Feb 26 14:33:41 GMT), said: "Who is the Birch?"

 

Edward LogoLIZ from (Wed Feb 26 14:33:52 GMT), said: "OOps! Lindsay's back and wants her computer again. Must go. Nice talkig to you guys. Bye"

 

Edward LogoAndrew Thompson (Wed Feb 26 14:34:17 GMT), said: "Are you a hard internet user yourself"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:34:20 GMT), said: "Simon, I did a launch a while back where I had Tim and Bob from the Boos, Nick Heyward and Andy Bell play with me, but I'm not sure that I could get them all together again."

 

Edward Logosimon from (Wed Feb 26 14:34:41 GMT), said: "Ed, do you go into the studio with complete tracks demoed or just rough ideas?"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:35:20 GMT), said: "Penelope, don't know. You tell me."

 

Edward Logokatrina (Wed Feb 26 14:35:32 GMT), said: "Ed, what do you think of Hurricane - Andy's new band? Have you seen them live?"

 

Edward LogoPOLLY@CEC (Wed Feb 26 14:35:37 GMT), said: "how many valentines did you get this year, ed?"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:36:44 GMT), said: "Andrew, just a dabbler, me."

 

Edward LogoAndrew Thompson (Wed Feb 26 14:37:56 GMT), said: "Do you see any subject matter for new material coming from this"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:38:03 GMT), said: "Simon, Usually start off with about 30 rough ideas which I expand on."

 

Edward LogoPenelope Tree (Wed Feb 26 14:38:11 GMT), said: "I thought you were an authority on Chelsea FC and you don't know who the Birch is. Stanley Mathews once called the biggest camp ponce on a football field and he was asked to pose in Paris Match with Tony Currie in a double bed. Penelope"

 

Edward LogoAndy Sutton (Wed Feb 26 14:38:36 GMT), said: "Any idea how often Creation are going to do interviews like this?"

 

Edward Logoruthey (Wed Feb 26 14:39:24 GMT), said: "How long have you been making music"

 

Edward Logosimon (Wed Feb 26 14:39:25 GMT), said: "Ed, do you feel that the music industry in the late 90's allows the artist enough freedom to create or is freedom a myth?"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:39:28 GMT), said: "Katrina, I think Andy's arrived big time. I've heard the Hurricane album and along with 18 Wheeler it's going to be one of the best group albums of the year."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:40:33 GMT), said: "Polly, I didn't get one from you. I'm still waiting."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:41:25 GMT), said: "Andrew, on-line love affairs!"

 

Edward Logokatrina (Wed Feb 26 14:42:49 GMT), said: "Ed, along with simon's question re artistic freedom, do you think that Creation more so than other labels allow their artists more freedom with their music? (if that makes sense!)"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:42:55 GMT), said: "Penelope, do you mean Alan Birchenal?"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:43:30 GMT), said: "Andy, I think it should be a regular thing. Definitely."

 

Edward LogoPenelope Tree (Wed Feb 26 14:43:57 GMT), said: "Correct"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:44:25 GMT), said: "Ruthey, ever since I was a kid really. I learned to play the blues harp when I was 9, and the piano when I was 13-14."

 

Edward LogoAndrew Thompson (Wed Feb 26 14:46:12 GMT), said: "Have you been invited to the wedding of the year!"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:46:47 GMT), said: "Katrina, indeed they do. Creation maintains a flexible relationship with their artists hence a phenomenon like Oasis."

 

Edward Logosimon (Wed Feb 26 14:46:59 GMT), said: "Ed, What do you think of the 3 Colours Red new material? Top Stuff?"

 

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:47:35 GMT), said: "Andrew, not yet. But if I am I'll be there!"

 

Edward LogoSarah (Wed Feb 26 14:47:40 GMT), said: "Mr.Ball, Can we get hold of Love Corporation stuff still?"

 

Edward Logokatrina (Wed Feb 26 14:47:49 GMT), said: "Andrew, you mean Charles and Camilla...?"

 

Edward LogoAndy Sutton (Wed Feb 26 14:48:02 GMT), said: "Do you think many artists would be bothered to do this kind of interview?"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:48:18 GMT), said: "Simon, Most exciting live band I've seen in ages. Chris McCormack is a genius."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:49:43 GMT), said: "Sarah, Nice question. Creation are releasing a double album later this year of remixes by Monkey Mafia, Chris Needs, One True Parker and loads of other cats of Love Corporation tracks."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:50:33 GMT), said: "Andy, I think they should try because once you start it's easy to get hooked."

 

Edward LogoAndrew Thompson (Wed Feb 26 14:50:33 GMT), said: "do you know where they're moving to"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:50:51 GMT), said: "Katrina, no. I mean me and whoever!"

 

Edward LogoSarah from (Wed Feb 26 14:51:26 GMT), said: "Can you write out the lyrics to the Celery Song?"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:51:48 GMT), said: "Andrew, yes I do but I'm not telling you."

 

Edward Logopob (Wed Feb 26 14:51:55 GMT), said: "ed, d'you fancy a kick around?"

 

Edward Logokatrina (Wed Feb 26 14:52:15 GMT), said: "Ed, i promise if you answer on more question i'll stop the sarky comments...your all-time fave Creation band?"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:52:40 GMT), said: "Sarah, Celery, celery, tickling your wife's bum (I think)."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:53:32 GMT), said: "Pob, I play 5 a-side, so you'd better bloody be good!"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:54:04 GMT), said: "Katrina, My Bloody Valentine. Unquestionably."

 

Edward Logosimon (Wed Feb 26 14:54:26 GMT), said: "Ed, How good was that late equaliser on Saturday?"

 

Edward LogoAndrew Thompson (Wed Feb 26 14:55:08 GMT), said: "We already know!! Logging off now, Thanks for an entertaining session. Great idea this internet interview. Who's the next interview with. Cheerio Katrina!"

 

Edward Logokatrina (Wed Feb 26 14:55:29 GMT), said: "Ed, do you think there could ever be a reconciliation between Creation and MBV?"

 

Edward Logopob (Wed Feb 26 14:55:44 GMT), said: "ahh, Mr Ed. you are a lovely man with shiny voice, but you have old bones."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:55:46 GMT), said: "Simon, no comment."

 

Edward LogoAndy Sutton (Wed Feb 26 14:55:47 GMT), said: "Do you really like 3CR or did Creation have an influence?"

 

Edward LogoJem (Wed Feb 26 14:56:20 GMT), said: "simon..poor old ed comes down here to be a friendly fella and now your're winding him up (and about the scum too!!) leave it out..."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:57:25 GMT), said: "Katrina, who knows. Alan would definitely make sure we'd hear a MBV's album soon."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:58:07 GMT), said: "Pob, I'd run rings around you."

 

Edward Logosimon (Wed Feb 26 14:58:47 GMT), said: "Ed, that last one was from Roland - we've got to log off now. Very informative session and nice to hear you're a fan of 18 Wheeler and 3 colours red. Top stuff - Keep up the good work with Creation. See ya !"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:59:02 GMT), said: "Andy, I REALLY love 3 Colours Red."

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 14:59:39 GMT), said: "Jem, quite so, quite so."

 

Edward LogoAndy Sutton (Wed Feb 26 15:00:51 GMT), said: "Thanks for talking, gotta go, up the Wolves!"

 

Edward Logokatrina (Wed Feb 26 15:01:31 GMT), said: "Ed, will Creation make a transcript of this 'interview' available on their website?"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 15:02:31 GMT), said: "Katrina, I will ensure for you personally that they will. By the way, have you joined my fanclub?"

 

Edward Logopob (Wed Feb 26 15:02:53 GMT), said: "alright ed, see you down the park (in Sheffield) in ten minutes if your'e so nifty..!"

 

Edward Logokatrina (Wed Feb 26 15:03:31 GMT), said: "Ed, no i haven't, but please don't tell me i have to contact Trinity Street! What's the snail mail address?"

 

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 15:04:07 GMT), said: "Pob, funnily anough I was in Leeds this morning, and I could have joined yo for a kick about... Are you Wednesday or United?"

Edward LogoEdward Ball (Wed Feb 26 15:05:47 GMT), said: "Hasn't anyone picked up on The Prisoner questions I wanted you lot to ask?"

 

Edward Logokatrina (Wed Feb 26 15:08:09 GMT), said: "Ed, thanks heaps! I've got to log off, but good luck for the LP...I probably don't have to remind you how brilliant it is! In case you were wondering, the last track (i can't remember what it's called as i left the cd at work!) is my fave! Hopefully i'll see you at one of your gigs soon! Cheers and thanks for being such a good sport...love Katrina. xxx"

See you all soon. Love, The Shed."
