Got my copy of 'From The Promised Land' direct from Cherry Red, came on Wednesday. All we need now is a collection of the few tracks and versions not yet available on CD. I'd like to make a public apology that Jeff (or Steve for that matter) has so far not received his copies. This has been caused ...

Hi Jeff,

Blimey, I haven't received one either - which makes me think that, in all probability, it's been listed as in stock in advance, though I could be wrong. I'll check for you anyway.

Well, if it hadn't been for Jeff gently nudging things along, it woudn't have happened like this. He really does deserve the credit for getting it back to the release it should have been anyway.

Hi all, Well, some good news, I think. Thanks to intense lobbying (OK, a few strategically placed emails) from Jeff, we've managed to get the licence slightly renegotiated. That means that, yes, Weeping Blood will be reinstsated (at the expense of the live Sin Of Sins - sorry, something had to go) a...

Hi Batfish, I can certainly make suggestions. The general policy seems to be at Cherry Red that if something will break even, they'll do it. So if Resurrection goes OK, I'm sure they'd look at the possibility of a follow-up. But, as you mention, a lot depends on licensing. I'm certainly happy to loo...

Thanks everyone.

I'll make a couple of minor alterations based on the above, then wing it off to Cherry Red next week - unless anyone wants to add anything else.

Just an update. With Steve's help, I've come up with a rough draft of the sleevenotes. At Jeff's suggestion I thought it might be worth putting them up here prior to publication to see if anyone's got any additions/corrections. Please PM me or comment on here if you think anything is amiss . . . Pla...

That wouldn't have been the Exits who released the Yodelling EP in 1978, would it? Or another Exits who did 'The Fashion Plague' for Lightning around the same time?

If not, there were at least three punk bands called the Exits extant at the same time . . .

Hi Jeff, I'll get Per-Ake to drop you a line perhaps? He's a very helpful fellow and he knows his onions - he's helped a lot with the article already. And yes, that bio is excellent. I was just keen to get some original info in the notes rather than just rewriting what has already been documented on...

Thanks for that Lee.

Possibly, a friend with a bit of knowledge on valuing stuff priced up The Final Epitaph at ?15. If anyone has paid more than that for a PD record, feel free to let me know. It's not cast in stone at this stage.

Yeah, any photos would be great. I've got a few from my friend Per-Ake to include in the package, but if anyone else has anything good they'd like to donate, I can pass them on to the relevant person. Incidentally, on an overlapping theme, I've recently been commissioned to write a major article on ...

Ah, tracklisting is a problem. I've only come on board this project as a writer (unlike some others I get involved in) and what basically comes down from on high is what I have to work with. The problem being that contracts will have already been drawn with the rights owners, etc, and I know the res...

Hi Jeff,

Many thanks for posting this.

Yup, all the above is true. Any contributions gratefully received (and will be acknowledged in the booklet).

You have no idea how dull my biographeering can be so save me from myself here folks.
