[Skrufff] Starting with the reissue of Temple Of Transparent Balls: why have you decided to re-release it (and why now in particular?)
[Martin] We decided to put the entire back catalogue in order and out of the hands of people who’ve never paid the band for these releases. All the old contracts had run their course and enough was enough.
[Ken] “Now” is as good a time as any…in the best sounding version we can?
[Martin] Plus, it helped that we’d started working with Soma, they’re a great bunch of people who leave us alone and let us do what we do. It makes a change for us not to have to do everything oursleves and it gives us more time to do the creative stuff for a change.
Due to Rich having an accident at the studio early today we’ve had to cancel tonights performance. Sorry about this but Rich’s back is badly brusied and it looks like he may have slipped a disk. Gutted and Concerned – tBd
Update: Bruised and sore, Rich is going to be fine but needs to take it easy for the next month or so.
It’s always good to get over to Manchester, the nightlife there makes Sheffield feel like a small village and we’ve been wanting to play there for a while. So we hit the Snake Pass and headed over, it’s not an easy drive, even if you know the road well. We get the usual nutcase go past us 90+ and the toss-pot that tail gates you all the way across, more on this subject later.
