The newsletter has been mailed to subscribers with 313 new items on.

I always get a few emails from people complaining they didn't receive it, usually harsh spam filtering BT addresses never seem to work so anyone who didn't receive just drop me a line and I'll email it as an attachment.

I'll update the site on Sunday.

BAD NEWS!! The much looked forward to UK tour by TSOL has been cancelled. This appeared on the band's Facebook page:

Fuck you UK Border! :email from From The TSOL manager: Hey UK-Promoters! BAD NEWS!!! OUR DRUMMER AND BASSIST ARE HOLD BY THE UK BORDER PATROL IN FRANCE AND ARE NOT ALLOWED TO MAKE IT INTO THE UK. THAT MEANS WE CANT DO THE LONDON ,BRISTOL; NEWCASTLE AND DUBLIN SHOW! WE ARE VERY SORRY BUT THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO

Damn! Was really looking forward to it.

Sounds to me like someone didn't apply for work permits.

They were supposed to play in 2005 but had to go back to USA for a court case. I don't think we'll ever see them in Britain.

Vote for Emily Portman

Emily Portman is a Newcastle based folk musician, but none of the wooly jumper rubbish here, her songs are dark and deal with subjects like wife-beating and rape, lyrics that wouldn't be out of place on a Nick Cave album.

One of her songs 'Two Sisters'  has been nominated for best traditional song in the Spiral Earth awards. Please click here to vote for Emily - she deserves to win! You don't need to enter your email address or anything like that.
