  1. Waiting patiently for my New Model Army to arrive…

  2. Three new TOB songs! Saw them this past weekend in Los Angeles – excellent show as usual.

  3. Also new this week from Factory Benelux: Testament by The Wake, a best-of collection spanning their Factory and Sarah records years available on CD and vinyl. The vinyl includes a bonus CD of early demos and live tracks

  4. Now I feel sufficiently hoodwinked for paying about $9 for the 6-song version of ‘waterworks’ when it first came out.
