    I am sure I am not alone in finding the re-recorded version of ‘Real Beauty Passed Through’ the most sublimely melancholic thing that they have produced in many years…..

    It is on the agenda and Johny and I did discuss it a while back to get the early stuff remastered to cd.

    still tempted by that polish cassette. UK based people - anyone who would have the capability of getting it transferred to mp3 and cd?

    The five tracks I haven't got are Rosemary Smith / First Hour Of Day / Prams Piers Bitter Tears / Consumption / Maybe One Day. Looking forward too to version of Real Beauty and a copy of Its Lovebite City minus anglegrinder, frying eggs, recording of pegleg pirate on wooden floor etc etc etc

    I've just ordered the new compilation from CHerry Red. Thanks to Tim! It's a surprising selection and there are five tracks I haven't got in any other form - are they from the cassette albums, Tim or Highwayfive? And Lovebite City, which I have recorded from a very distressed forty five ... really looking forward to it.

    Out of interest I clicked on the last fm 'buy from amazon uk' link while listening to Bride from Manic. Follow this link for expensive laugh:

    Theres been a guy over from the states called Mike Pearlstein whos been filming and recording a lot of the stuff. Exactly what were going to do with it were not sure yet,but there should be some of it posted on myspace like i have with the live version of where it hurts. An immediate answer to hearing the guys live would be getting along to the London dates in December and start Christmas with

    There is something very wrong about a world in which a group for Genesis has 511 members and a group for Band of Holy Joy has only 8. Perhaps we should kill ourselves.

    Hi all my Holy Joy is on vinyl and that very early demo tape thing. Anyone able to point me in the direction of some MP3's?
