Dear All,

Here we are again somewhere in Britain.  I should know exactly but the snow has gone over the top of the road signs.  Still, thats how it goes when you've been up and down and round about the map like a yoyo in a spin drier for a few months.

We've seen four nationalities of winter so far this year and learned lots of new words like "itinorant" and "#%@~x%!! van!" but it always managed to get us there somehow and, at last, it got us to the studio for this new album of ours.

So once again to each, and all who are part of the heterogeneous collection of villains we call friends (some's in, some's out, and some's waiting for their case to come up) a million thanks for all your help and support whether in the studio, on the road or after closing time.

Cast your bread upon the water and it shall return to you one hundred fold...should anyone require 100 wet loaves write to us c/o JVO 419K; somewhere.

to you all, slainté
