Typo[edit]

Listen, mate, your entry at Feezo's talk page contains a nasty typo. You might want to fix that. CaesarsPalaceDude (talk) 23:59, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

Happy (belated) New Year[edit]

I was hoping that I might get some of your expert assistance in a musical matter. Recently an editor has been placing notability tags on almost all the releases by Jebediah and End of Fashion (as well as some of The Vines), together with Soulparadox we have removed them, as they weren't really justified however having a look at the articles they are fairly brief and could do with some expanding/referencing. Was wanting to know whether you were interested in dropping by and giving a hand (like old times). Dan arndt (talk) 02:42, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Strange behavior indeed. Regards,--Soulparadox (talk) 03:36, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
Now we're cooking - the old team back on a mission - I like it.Dan arndt (talk) 05:07, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

The Island of Doctor Moron[edit]

If you want to write a DYK for this, I could request an early close as keep of the AfD. Looks like you could still get it in on time and you did plenty of work on the expansion. Gaff (talk) 04:24, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

a group for editing Australian female artists and musicians articles[edit]

hi, I've started a Facebook group to see if others would like to edit WP articles for female artists and musicians. just wondering if you'd be interested in joining it or OK if I asked some questions to clarify answers that may arise. a few people have expressed interest already. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1403867353243376/ is the group page. thanks (I can ask in one of the WP women pages if you're busy, so no worries if you don't have the time/bandwidth. cheers.

Farnham & Durbin "Softly Whispering I Love You"[edit]

Hello. I hope this makes sense:

I've just researched and written about this record here: http://www.poparchives.com.au/2665/johnny-farnham-allison-durbin/softly-whispering-i-love-you

(My website also hosts Barry Mackay's Go-set chart pages at http://www.poparchives.com.au/gosetcharts)

The first feedback I got about it was from an Allison Durbin fanatic and collector who couldn't recall or find the record.

Strange thing is that now I can't find any trace of this record either, apart from (1) the Go-set charts (2) the "Together" album page (also mentioned under the entry for the song). It doesn't appear on any other Australian charts or discographies that I have access to.

Solved: it's an error by the compiler of the online Go-set charts. He's fixing it. There never was a version by Durbin & Farnham.
Lyn50 (talk) 04:33, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
Yes, poparchives is my site. I wrote the page. I have emailed the compiler (whom I know well) and he realised his error and is fixing it soon (some log-in difficulties for him which my developer is trying to fix today). It was indeed a transcription error. If you look at my (poparchives) page now, I've updated with the heading "THE RECORD THAT NEVER WAS!". http://poparchives.com.au/2665/johnny-farnham-allison-durbin/softly-whispering-i-love-you
I'll probably transfer the history of the other versions over to my blog when I get a chance.
And yes, it should've shown "The Congregation". The Farnham-Durbin Softly Whispering's supposed 3-month run on Go-set coincided with Congregation's run on other Aussie charts. Note also that Congregation's versiont does not appear at all on the online Go-set chart now, when it did quite well on the capital cities chart. You'd expect it to have made an impression on the Go-set chart, as it did, as it appeared in the original magazine.
Apart from this, there is absolutely no evidence anywhere else of this single existing. It seems to go back to the Go-set chart error. It's not on any other chart, or discography, or label discography. or book, or website. If you search artists + song title you'll find mainly sites that have cut & pasted from the "Together" Wikipedia page and the song's Wikipedia page. And those Wp pages are sourced from the Go-set chart.
It is unfortunate, as you say, that this will be online... forever.
Lyn50 (talk) 00:25, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
Sorry I should've said that the Go-set charts are hosted at my site (I am Lyn Nuttall) but compiled and maintained by Barry McKay. It used to be a separate site and I just gave him space. You'll notice the Go-set URL starts with www.poparchives......
I spent many hours researching the song before one of my readers alerted me to the error (he is credited at the page).
Thank you. I appreciate your work and your comments. Glad to have this cleared up. You may have noticed that the online Go-set charts have now been amended as well (link). I have moved my data to my blog poparchivesblog.blogspot.com.au/ but left the page at my site (with a link to my blog) in case anyone still searches for the record. Fortunately, my page is already appearing near the top of Google results so that might be help set the record straight. All the best.

The Odd Wrinkle[edit]

Ok, In answer to your questions (to the best of my ability):

  1. "Jerks of Attention" was released as a single in late 1996 (check [1], (band's management agency) and [2] but the real kicker is Discogs (check the CD cover - which gives the copyright as being 1996)). However given it was recorded in August 1996 in Melbourne it is highly unlikely that it was released 12 August 1996, I'm thinking that a December release date fits better with the facts.
  2. Album "was recorded between March and May 1997". This sort of fits in with the fact that "Teflon" was released in March 97 but its still a fairly tight timeframe.
  3. "Double-platinum" - I agree that Take40 is not reliable source for certifications. There are a number of other sources [3], [4], [5] and [6] that support the the claim.

Paul Kelly[edit]

There's a claim on PK's talk page that the lead has been plagiarised from another website. My thoughts are that it is the otherwise around but thought you might want to check, otherwise it could affect the article's GA status.... Dan arndt (talk) 12:21, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
