And a very warm
welcome to Phase IV of our five phase mission, as we continue to explore
strange new music, to seek out new noises and guitar riffs, to boldly go
where no band has gone before. But first, apologies that this been the first
major update since the release of "The Music & Elsewhere Collection" last
September. That said, you may have noticed it is something of a serious
overhaul, hope you like the new look, specially designed to go with the
Magic Bullet project. You'll notice a few changes on the navigation side bar
to start with, so let me just catch you up on what's new;
link has gone, you get back here now by clicking on the new Magic Net logo
at the top of the sidebar.
Bazaar' is the new marketplace to pick up our releases or grab yourself a
nice free download.
Bullet' is a relatively blank slate at the moment, but I will start adding
to it over the coming weeks as time allows.
Moments', 'Music & Elsewhere' & 'The UWU Network' are all pretty much as
they were, just in a different order and the content of each has been
gone, sorry, but it was proving way too time consuming trying to keep it
up to date, and it's of little use to anyone if it's full of dead URL's.
We're still more than happy to share M&E related stuff on our social media and
in the occasional e-mail newsletter, so don't be afraid to ask.
also gone, but all the content from it has been merged into the other
indexes, so fear not, all those wonderful freebies are still available on
Zone' still contains our address, e-mail and social media, but now also
has mailorder details and a PayPal link.
Wow, a lot has
happened since last September, hasn't it? Things certainly haven't turned
out quite as we'd imagined. The late Summer and Autumn from last year; the
days when we could whisk off down south for a get together with ex-MMATT
crewmembers Shona Moments, Nick The Exocet Kid and Pete Program; the days
when we could pop out to go crabbing with our good mate and neighbour, Stan
Batcow (Howl In The Typewriter / Pumf Records); the days when we could
have old friends like Stuart Hamilton (Zeitgeist / The Rocker) and Neil Crud
(Spam Javelin, Link 2 Wales, that excellent radioshow on Tudno FM and, of
course, ex of M&E chart toppers, Sons Of Selina) come to visit us; those
days all seem like another lifetime now.
As you can
imagine, time has been a little shorter of late (about 35 hours a week
shorter because of the school closures, isn't home schooling a 7 year old an
interesting experience?), but we're getting there. Over the coming
days and weeks, I shall be starting to add new articles about what's been
happening here since last September. In that time, "The M&E Collection" has
gone on to become our best selling M&E title ever (and even then, it's only
"Creavolution" from the MMATT catalogue that's in front of it!); "Freedom
Overflow" was club-mixed by Cyborcosis; and the Magic Bullet project
has finally got going, with a live radio session, two albums and much more
under our belt already.
More about all
of this (and other stuff, I'm sure) will start being added soon, so watch
for the appearance of new links at the bottom of the page. In the meantime,
I hope you'll find plenty of
things to explore and enjoy muchly in
