Rain, Airtight Garage, Vaultage Sleeves + Free mp3's
Here we are then, ready to rock in to September. Hope the summer picks up, especially after my last front page 'The sun's rays etc' where my misplaced optimism seems to have put the kybosh on the sunshine. To make up for it we've got two more tracks from the BWE 'Youth In Asia' album (it's nearly all there now) and two more from the excellent Ammonites rehearsal tapes. We've had more than a few technical problems with some of the BWE tracks, let us know if you have any problems with them. As far as we know they are all previewing and downloading OK now. Behind the scenes poor Stu has been tearing his hair out...
Thanks to Bob Machin for sending in some stuff about the Airtight Garage Band. I've duly built a page, making it 55 bands on the site now. Bob was recalling some of the salient points from the punk days, one of them this: "...Not making it onto Vaultage 80 but Rick giving us a page in the calendar (November, if memory serves) as compensation (where is the Attrix Calendar, by the way?)"
Good question. Having scanned the entire calender, I've begun cleaning it up in Photoshop (my copy was very tatty and I had even put entries in it like Sept 5, Phil, dentist 11am) I shall remove all my personal crap of course before presenting a pristine, downloadable pdf. Watch out for that next month. Oh and Bob, Airtight Garage were featured in May.
Had another email from Smeggy, he of the Cheesybits and latterly the House of Cheese, his hilarious website. A man with a ready wit and a regular contributor to this site. Cheers Dave. Looking forward to more.
Also spent some time completely revamping the Vaultage Album covers pages, I wanted to make them more faithful to the original Attrix covers, see what you think. All the relevent links are in the section below. Up yours!
