I made a call today to Mike Keneally's Moosemart customer service # and it
happened that Mike's manager (Scott Chatfield; a reliable source!) answered.
I had a question about the track "Inhale" (quite the Dukesian romp) from
Mike's "Wine and Pickles" compilation and I mentioned the XTC/Dukesness of
the track and that I was REALLY looking forward to the release of Mike &
Andy's collaboration. Amongst other things, Scott said that despite Andy
having sung on the demos, he is not comfortable with his singing voice (a
recent development?) and that basically Andy will be producing Mike. There
was no info on what sort of release it will be or when it might appear.

Upchalkingly,

Scott Nuckles

Hi:

Over at the XTCfans MySpace site (http://www.myspace.com/xtcfans), the
song of the week is "Radios in Motion."

If you want to know why Barry Andrews thought the original intro to
the song was "too fucking arty," or who Andy's pen pal was in those
early days, check out the XTCfans blog site at
http://blog.myspace.com/xtcfans.

And all the kids are complaining
That there's nowhere to go...

Hi gang,

I had the pleasure of hosting fellow Chalkhillian Jim Smart and one of
his colleagues at my actual place of employment today.  (Jim is a
sixth-grade teacher, just like I am, and he stopped by my school as
part of a New York/Connecticut tour.)  It's always nice meeting one of
our fellow subscribers face-to-face and finding out that he isn't an
axe murderer!

Hail Mother Motor, Hail Piston, Hail Wheel

Just dropping by to say that Dave Gregory's solo on Becki diGregorio's
Inside the Dream track on the Seven Worthies album is just positively
scrumptious and makes the hair stand up on my neck and I smile every time I
hear it, as does the rest of the album for the most part. If you ain't got
it and her second album ' god's empty chair' as well you are truly doing a
disservice to your ears.

Thanks for the audio pleasures Becki! Looking forward to the next round.

PS: Sure glad they got the strike over with so they could get back to making
quality music.
