Yikes!

Ordered but what am I going to do in the meantime, take up knitting, read a book, join the Republicans :shock:

The next few days will be fraught, thanks Bill :evil: :lol:

I suppose you could sir.

Knowing how screwed the mail is between both the UK and mail systems here I hope this arrives in time for Xmas!

Ordered! Listening to Plectrajet to help fill the void until Electric Atlas arrives. What a great album! From "I Always Knew You Would Find Me" to "Imperial Parade" (my favorites) and much more. If you don't have this one, you are definitely missing out. This one needs to get out to a wider audience as well. Bill, hope you can get out to the USA sometime soon. Maybe come out to Texas and play South by Southwest? Usually a very diverse line up of bands. Great opportunity to introduce or re-introduce yourself to what I believe would be a very welcoming and appreciative audience. Maybe one day. Until then, we have plenty of your music (and more on the way) to carry us through!

Unfortunately, health issues have made live performance difficult for me. I permanently lost my hearing in one ear last year and my other ear is not exactly perfect. I don't want to risk losing the working ear due to exposure to loud stage volumes so I've given up on the performing side of things and only work in my studio now where I can keep the volume under better control.
I've also been diagnosed with diabetes and need to inject insulin. The diabetes has caused an eyesight threatening condition for which I need monthly injections of a drug directly into my eyeball, so this has also added to the problem of touring. I may throw a launch party for an album next year where I might attempt a short live instrumental set for attendees but, beyond that, there will be no more live shows.

Dang! Dang! Dang! :shock:

Was up north for a long weekend - completely forgot about the potential for imminent release (we know it's always a Monday....) :shock: :shock: :shock:

I did check in yesterday morning but obviously too early....

And now I'm stuck on a bus with no secure signal I have to wait another forty minutes to place my order :shock:

Could this be the one I miss out on.........?


:oops:

Bill if you do perform a few tracks at an album launch........ just play very quietly....! Or just do a meet and greet with recorded audio. 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

Hi Felix

I was wondering where you had got to yesterday - normally one of the first to order and to report on the fact!

I'm glad that you got your order in today. I'm sure you'll be OK. I hope your trip went well. :)

I look forward to reading your reaction to the new album, when you have had a chance to take it all in. 8)

Mick
