Forthcoming releases:

long awaited (meaning i've taken my time) release...
how long can you make 3 chords last? in this case, 75 minutes.
Three versions of a tune which has three (very lovely) chords played on lots of different guitars by me (8 different guitars i think) and contributions from: Fraser McGowan, Konntinent, Arconic Music, David Newlyn, Absent Without Leave, Kevin hufnagel, Northern Valentine, Stafraenn Hakon, Ringinglow and Winterlight.
A live version of this track was included on the LIVE cdr released by October Man, recorded at Union Chapel - one of only two live performances of this piece to date.
This will be a limited CD on my own Editions6 label in a recycled card sleeve with rubber stamp. Most likely an edition of 300 copies (certainly no ore) available by mail order and from selected retailers.

that's about all for now... there will be a merry6mas cd this year so look out for news on that, and also another release from the fine people at October Man with an extremely limited box set version (and i mean extreme!) but the normal verison will be more widely available... provisionally titled 'OLD' the disc will include recordings salvaged from old cassettes dating from 1995-1997

Lastly, i have some remaining copies of CUT with bonus un/CUT CD and a handful of remaining copies of Bootleg#3 and merry6mas2009 available form the shop
