Newsletter  



I'm sorry to have to report that my dear friend Stuart Gordon died last night after a short illness.

Other news will be incoming here shortly.

My previous notes about inactivity here and activity elsewhere:


I've been far from diligent of late in updating news here at Sofa Sound, even if hard news is a bit thin on the ground at the moment.

Partly this is the result of my continuing commitment to maintaining an online journal - at sofasound.wordpress.com if you haven't yet come across it. I began doing that in part because I realised that items I put up here on the latest news page have traditionally been erased  and overwritten as new stuff comes in - and of course it's now some time since the newsletters ceased being my favoured form of updating news. But in turn that's meant that I've been slow to put things up here. Must try harder....but of course the dissemination of info these days is spread over a number of different channels in any case.

(And should you be interested I also have a twitter identity, @Sofa_sound. My contributions there, though, are pretty random and sporadic....)




As I wrote some time ago we're no longer stocking the Virgin catalogue, either solo or VdGG. TheCDs are, of course,  still available elsewhere and if you're interested we recommend that you go to Burning Shed to purchase them. (We've also begun to put in direct links to their Hammill/VdGG pages from the individual CD pages, though they're not all there yet.)





Many moons have passed...but you may also be interested, now, to go and check out www.peterhammill.com where, finally, some lyric-labyrinthine adventures await, thanks to the indefatigable labours of Adrian. More on this anon, but it's only right to let you know that something's been/is afoot there....

Regarding the site...
The intention here is to have a fundamentally "white paper" place from which information rather than entertainment (or information as entertainment) can be gleaned. To this end the site should be under fairly constant revision. Once again, my apologies for being negligent in this regard over the last few months.
