Re: Moaner question
I may be mixing up my thoughts, but I sort of remember that 'Please Help Me' was slated to be the last track on Beacoup Fish? But Daz had been playing 'Moaner' at his DJ gigs and had been getting big responses from the crowds. So it was decided to give Moaner a second life on Beacoup Fish. I could be mistaken though.

This is what happened. He says something about it on this interview.

Re: Moaner question
I was just listening to that interview a few weeks back, and Emerson does indeed say that he persuaded Karl and Rick to put Moaner on Beaucoup Fish as it was doing really well in his DJ sets. Its placing on the Batman & Robin soundtrack kind of doomed Moaner to obscurity, so they were glad to give it a chance at life on BF.

Emerson doesn't say anything about Please Help Me, though. The only explanation I can imagine for leaving that off the album and leaving Push Downstairs on is plain and simple DRUGS.

Re: Moaner question
Which reminds me. Whatever happened to Alicia Silverstone and Chris O'Donnell? They were both big up & comers in the mid-90s.

They appeared in "Batman & Robin," that's what happened.

Re: Moaner question
Thank you for the memories, Karl, and the lovely drawing.

I didn't realize this had already been answered a couple times, but the embellishments in this version are nice, such as the original proposal for being in the movie, and your reaction to the final product.

Re: Moaner question
Well...
How's that? We discuss the history of Moaner, and we get an article about it.

Was the Kittens download different than the Beaucoup Fish version? I've always wondered if there's a studio version of the track they play live as it's quite different from the one on the album, and I never actually got that ancient download.
