I wonder if they just threw away the mail they got the past years. I haven't heard of anybody who ever received a reply to their letter. I sent them the OOT2 CD last year, wonder if they listened to it.

Their Myspace site lists Hexagon Sun, UK as their location now, instead of Sunset Yellow, CA.

Interesting... perhaps a precaution to the massive influx of mail they expect to recieve if an announcement is made?

His <i>left</i> foot? You've got it wrong, it's right foot = album, left foot = 12" remix.

Gaaaaarghlhgl! The suspense is killing me!

MDG please give us some news, something new to over-analyze to death! It's been too long since your last reassurance that they in fact will be releasing a new album.

Oh, and btw, first post! :)

Nice avatar, by the way... though it might make me start obsessing over Bilinda Butcher again, though. :roll:

Well, just remember that she is nearly 50 years old nowadays and I think you'll do fine. :)

I agree with you though, it's easy to fall in love when you look at the old photos of the band.

Figured this is the right thread for this...

I searched "Michael Sandison" as a songwriter on the Harry Fox Agency (where musicians go to obtain licenses to make cover songs on their own records) to see if there was anything interesting in any official catalogs.

The first result, among other tracks that are recognizable, is "Echus"...?

Has anyone heard of it/know what it is? I can't link to the search results because of how the web page is... Click this link, and search Michael Sandison. It's also, oddly, the first result.

(or, just search 'echus')

If anyone can't replicate it, here's a screenshot of the Songfile: clicky

If it's something dumb, or obvious, I'm sorry in advance. I'm not hunting around for new things like a madman, I am not after starting silly hype - to be honest I typed in a lot of my favorite artists because it was cool to see their works come up. But when this popped up... I just don't know what it is.
