quemsabenaproxima asked: Hi, there! Is there room in this blog for covers on Editors? I'm a Brazillian fan and I'd like to share my recording of the b-side "An eye for an eye".

Hello there!  Yes there is definitely room on this blog for a cover!  Please feel free to share and we’ll post.  In fact, everyone, even though this blog is mostly an archival blog of the original incarnation of the band, we welcome any submissions you may have.

grabmymicrocuts asked: HI there! :) I have to ask - Do you know why Editors haven't played What Is This Thing Called Love live? Do they dislike this song, or? Thank you for your answer!

Hello there!  And sorry I didn’t get back to you earlier.  I believe that Tom has just said they won’t play it live although I’m not entirely sure WHY that is.  Someone out there may have seen in one of his Q&A’s a reason and if you have please let us know! 

If not, this might be a really great question to ask him when he is on twitter again. 

I do know Tom has performed the song solo, during PIAS nites in 2012 - you can see that performance here:  http://youtu.be/AGeQXJ792EQ

It is my hope to preserve many of the photos posted in the forums over the years so as we continue to focus on the history of the band and it’s original incarnation, and if we post photos from the forum that belong to you and you want them removed or given proper credit, PLEASE let us know.  Thank you!

Interview from the Vault - Designer Magazine, May 2005

Editors

A lot can happen in a few weeks. Within a couple of weeks of this interview happening Editors went in to the studio with mournful Mancs Elbow to record “Let Your Good Heart Lead You Home”, the B-side to new single “Blood”. Designer Magazine however did catch up with Tom (Vocals) and Russell (bass) to discuss the bands appearance on the surreal MTV Spanking New Series of gigs, the bands formation in Brum and the forthcoming album “The Back Room”

Q: New band, well Spanking New band according to MTV. The obvious question first - is this your first band and how did you get together?
Russell: Yeah. We formed at University, we’ve been going for a couple of years although we lived together for about 4 years. After we finished Uni we decided to give it a go and that’s what we’ve been doing ever since.
