All apologies to those who read this five years or so ago, but I've
just seen it and some should  find it insightful:

OK Kevin, I'm a bit confused about this. Are we talking about the UK imports
and, if so, what's the difference between the reissued imports and expanded
imports? I love much of MacColl's stuff and have held onto all my original
US releases for years in hopes that they'd eventually be reissued.

Oh, The Beau Brummel's "Magic Hollow" from Rhino Handmade is a blast! I'd
forgotten how much I loved this band's stuff (my older brothers were big
fans of theirs because we grew up in the SF Bay Area and they were the first
band to break out after The Beatles).

Aimee Mann's latest CD is also quite good. Unless something really good by
Andy and Colin comes out before the end of the year, I'll be hard pressed to
find something else that will displace it from either the first or second
place on my new releases list.

Dear all

Merely a year (less 8 days) after our last gig, X-sTatiC will be returning
to our London Home, THE DUBLIN CASTLE, on FRIDAY 1st JULY.

This'll be the first of two planned summer gigs, the other being somewhere
more exotic, possibly Manchester.

Then, of course, we'll be playing at THE MEETING PLACE 2005 in Swindon on
the weekend of 30th September to 2nd October. You'll all be going won't you?
Of course you will.

More details about all of this, plus gig flyers and some new video clips can
be found on the totally not re-designed or in any way re-organised X-sTatiC
website www.x-static.org. We will re-do it one day. Probably.

Adrian, Dan, Ed, Mick.

So the wife drags me to her Wine Tasting Club last Saturday
and the host brings out seven different brown bagged sauvignon
blancs and we proceed to rate them for clarity, acidity,
etc. etc.  So, which one did I like best?  why...California's
Chalk Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2002, of course... described as
"Round, with very good depth to vanilla and marshmallow tones
shaping melon, lively citrus and grass flavors.... a coincidence?
