I went on Saturday to see No Manifesto, the Manic Street Preachers documentary.

MSP are big Rush fans and there was a good clip of the two bands meeting, Nicky Wire showing his original Rush emblazoned denim cutoff etc.

If you are real Rush completist its worth a watch - its a great documentary in its own right

I'm all for the aniversary celebrations to a point but .. really ....
http://www.rushbackstage.com/rushbackstage/media-260/featured-books/art-of-rush-deluxe-roadcase-edition.html

This is the Deluxe Roadcase Edition of Art of Rush. Limited to 100 copies, this deluxe limited edition is numbered and signed by all 3 members of Rush & Hugh Syme. The book will come in a hand-crafted road case designed by Anvil approx. 15" x 15" x 3" in size and will be enclosed in a custom hand-made slipcase. A signed and numbered limited edition lithograph of Hugh Syme's detailed drawing of Caress of Steel, the first cover he worked on for Rush, will be inside the case, The case will have a metal plate affixed to the outside with the limited edition number and the limited edition lithograph of the Caress of Steel lithograph will match.

Pre-Order this item, and you will receive an exclusive R40 Record Flat:
This Hugh Syme designed record flat is printed on 12" x 12" card stock and is printed on both sides. Side One will feature the R40 artwork, custom designed for this exclusive. Side Two will feature a complete discography of the Rush albums. This record flat is exclusive to this pre-order, and will not be available anywhere else, at any time.

The Art of Rush is a 272 page coffee table book that delves into the 40 year relationship with Rush and their longtime artist and illustrator Hugh Syme. The stunning book begins with a foreword penned by Neil Peart, and contains original illustrations, paintings, photography, and the incredible stories behind each album that he has designed with the band since 1975.

The book's narration was written by music journalist Stephen Humphries and includes in-depth interviews with each Rush band member, Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, Neil Peart and artist Hugh Syme. The Art of Rush also contains entertaining anecdotes and commentary from a wide array of notable musicians, actors, athletes, writers, radio personalities and Rush insiders about their favourite Rush album covers, which clearly reveals how vital and impactful the visual representation of their music has been through the years.

One of the hallmark's of Rush releases is the considerable care and consideration that goes into each one – including the conceptual artwork. Readers of the Art of Rush may be surprised to discover just how much effort went into each concept and the execution for every album cover. In the days before Photoshop, each element of the artwork had to be handcrafted and pieced together. Take the gatefold for Hold Your Fire, for example, Hugh first constructed a miniature set of a city street and then super-imposed a picture of a fireball juggler on it. It's akin to what the Hollywood special effects studio used to do. Nowadays, of course, Hugh utilizes digital technology to create Rush's art. But as Neil Peart adds, "the tools got easier, but the thinking doesn't."

Some of the regaled stories include furtively crossing the border for a guerilla-style shoot for A Farewell to Kings, trying to herd a warren of rabbits for the cover of Presto, descending into the depths of an autopsy lab to find a brain for Hemispheres, building a pool inside Hugh's studio for Test for Echo, and a stunt involving fire, whiskey and photographer Deborah Samuel for Moving Pictures. But no history of the band's art would be complete without the story of the creation of arguably the band's most iconic image, The Starman, and cover art for 2112.

"From the first time Hugh and I met, we shared a level of communication that would sustain us through all the years of discussing art by long distance. We had the same values and tastes in images and design, and simply spoke the same language. That's why I off-handedly referred to him one time as ‘serving a life sentence as my art director," said drummer and lyricist Neil Peart, who has worked with Hugh on the art for every project Rush has released.


I guess if I had a few $995's to spare it might feel different ??

Indeed Mitten ...

Some good news to share though, after 16 years of working for this company I've finally found a fellow Rush fan. Not just that but his favourite album is also Power Windows. Smile

I played Signals in honour of this fact in the car on Friday evening when we were going away for Mrs Lambert's birthday until she reminded that it was her birthday weekend and switched to Radio 2 Mad

Welcome to the thread Stedic.

Rush are the greatest rock ban on this (or any) planet.

Yes ... GET IN THERE !!!

Interview with Alex Lifeson for this month's Classic Rock mag
... These days it's (Geddy) Lee who is driving Rush forward. He wants to tour more. If he gets his way, the band will return to the UK and mainland Europe in 2016. Whatever happens next, he says, will be dependent on how the other two guys are feeling after the US tour: "If everyone's really digging it, the way I think we will, then we might carry on." ...

Good news for European fans! And here's what Geddy had to say about the band's future

... I'm just trying to enjoy the ride. Can we go on forever? Clearly not. We don't know if this is the end. And if it is the end, it's going to happen in bits and pieces. If we can't go out and do a massive tour in the future because everyone can't agree on that, there's nothing to say we can't do another record or one-off shows here and there. That's the best way I can describe it. ...

things are looking up
Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Great news Mitten.

This should allay a fear dream I had the other night.

Rush were playing this fantastic concert but surrounded by rubble in this kind of post apocalyptic world. They were playing better than ever but around them everything was in ruins. Then Geddy Lee and Neil Peart had a fight and Ged came out worse and was badly beaten up.

I think this is a deep seated fear of Rush ending touring and I see Geddy as the perennial Rush and Bubba as the aging Rush that will not last. I thought I would need therapy but maybe not after this news.

I think we should ML!

I've now found a fellow Rush fan at work. We've started dropping Rush songs into conference calls and emails.

Very Happy

Yessss - (almost) all we've been waiting for - other than R40 visiting the UK Crying or Very sad

This year is costing a fortune in Vinyl but hey, T4E for the first time on a turntable ... worth every penny Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

...... Earlier this week we learned that Rush would be reissuing their Atlantic-era albums (except for Vapor Trails) on vinyl. The band has already been releasing all of its Mercury-era albums on vinyl throughout 2015 as part of their 12 Months of Rush reissue campaign. The Rush Backstage Club has listings for vinyl reissues of Presto and Roll the Bones to be released on September 11th, Counterparts and Test for Echo for release on October 10th, and Feedback and Snakes & Arrows to be released on November 13th. No further details are available at this time, although its assumed that these will be the same versions that were offered in the band's Rush: The Studio Albums 1989-2007 box set back in 2013. A 180-gram vinyl edition of Vapor Trails was already made available when the Remixed version of the album was released 2 years ago, which is likely why it isn't being included this time around.

So how would you have done Smile

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b06dslsd

Rush was the specialist subject chosen in last night's episode of the BBC quiz show Mastermind by contestant Tom Mead. Mead was drilled for two minutes on a series of fourteen questions about the band by host John Humphrys, and ended up missing only two.


I got the ones he got wrong + 1 other
