Hi Angie,Good to hear from you.  Had a look at your new web site.  I must say it's looking great!


Hi Dear Angie, CONGRATULATIONS that you are up and running. 
Your web loads fast and I like the different use of the colour blends on the pages....plus the "picture" of your manager on your services page is "top".....not a web site for "tonkas"....just for "neat" folks. 
Thanks for the inclusion on your links page.....appreciated.

love as always, Dave



Monsoons, hurricane season, autumn, the temperatures drop; summer is over in the Northern hemisphere and spring is breaking out the Southern planet's fresh breezes and spring showers. Oh, to be below the equator as weather changes!

There is an elephant in the room called Katrina................

"The Confederacy of Dunces is Finally Shipwrecked, Oh New Orleans" is an essay/article on the history of the New Orleans' political and geographical situation. insert link

I thought it might help displaced folk to know that not only are they not alone but now thanks to a natural catastrophe the wrongs slopped on their heads by greedy Louisiana politicians and the complicity of the Republican  government will clean house in that fair city and characterful state. There will be some sweeping changes in the manner in which business is done. Schools and local services must be provided where they were neglected.

Local New Orleans officials wouldn't allocate resources to open the public swimming pools in the 1990s for the kids during the hottest part of the summers. My New Orleans Source was living and working with the local New Orleans government researching how the city could be fortified from weather and strengthened as the hurricane seasons have become longer and feature more storms.

From Michelle

Hi Angie, Hope youíre well and enjoying the summer, though I expect you have summer weather pretty much most of the time!  

Just to let you know that the cult rock posters exhibition has now come to an end for this year, but it was a complete success as was the launch party. Iíve attached the website link which has a couple of photos from the evening. As you will see, the colourful guests included Patti Palladin, Gaye Advert & TV Smith, Susan Carrington & Andrew Czezowski (The Roxy Club) amongst others. A good time was had by all!

It was a fabulous sunny evening and the party was held in the gallery courtyard accompanied by a suitably nostalgic soundtrack as compiled by Alwyn. A London gallery has already confirmed a space for next yearís exhibition to fall in line with the UK book launch and then the US book launch will take place a short while after, so hopefully there will be a NY exhibition as well. So there are even more posters to be unveiled!

By the way, you were on TV last Sunday evening and looked fabulous; it was a repeat programme about the late John Bindon. I knew him from Fulham, which is where we were both from. As you know, a complex character but definitely entertaining! I also watched ĎThe Filth and The Furyí the other night. Ah, those halcyon days of the punk rocker!  

Anyway, I just wanted to say Hi and hope everything is fine and dandy with you and your family.  

Love, Michelle x  



"Late at night, when sleep does not befriend my nervousness, I try to harmonise the vacant hours with music and verse..."
The last time we played live was July 2002. I remember it well, it was the hottest day ever, and the gig was in King's Cross, so there was zero oxygen. Prior to that, I made a brief appearance at Norwich Assembly Hall in April 2000, but the last full shows were in May 1997. So, it could be said that we've been away for a while. But the wait is officially over, and we're in it up to our necks. Tickets for the Brighton gig (19th October) went on sale at 9am this morning (Monday 1st August). Just go to www.ticketweb.co.uk and enter a search for Subterraneans. The London show on 21st September is a flyer rather than a ticket affair, you can download and print out as many flyers as you want from our website. All you need is a 'puter, a printer, an internet, and an Adobe Acrobat or other some such
software than can open PDF documents.

Currently in the pipeline are more London shows for October and November, including, as previously mentioned, an acoustic appearance at the 291 Gallery in Shoreditch (or is it Bethnal Green?). Details remain sketchy at present, but we've said yes. A few bigger (and therefore better) gigs are being discussed for early next year.

The compilation album, VOLUME: THE BEST OF SUBTERRANEANS 1992-2004, is now scheduled for release in November (on the Electric Label, of course). We are currently trying to find a manufacturer who will produce the CD using 100% recycled material, as frankly that is what we are doing by releasing it in the first place.

You're probably tired of hearing it by now, but the new album, SOUL MASS TRANSIT, is out on 19th September, on the Electric Label; UK distribution is through Rhythm of Life, North America is through Darla, and Europe is through the German label Alison Records. Australia, Japan, South America, and pretty much everywhere else above the ground, will find the album available as an import from Shellshock. The only place the album will not be available is Israel, as the Israeli government sponsors piracy and keeps all the munny.
They've been doing it for years; my uncle bought a really naff pirate cassette of our first album in Tel Aviv many years ago, and I'm still miffed about that. And he didn't buy it from some guy on a street corner with a suitcase either, he bought it in bloody Tower Records.
We don't make records just so a bunch of sanctioned crooks can buy helicopter gunships and commit organised crime in the name of civil service, so if you're in Israel and you would like a copy of the album, please don't buy it in your local stores, either steal it or better still buy it online. On second thoughts, steal it even if you've no wish to listen to it... More soon. Jude
