My thanks to the mighty Vargan for alerting me to this item from Tony's website. "I have the opportunity to re-release my photo book, Crimson Chronicles
in digital format (for iPad). It will feature all the photos, but also a
lot of extras, including other
shots that didn't make it to the original book. So, that's got me
digging through my files for photos, itineraries, tour passes, and music
I can use for that release."

Letter from DS & RF
:: Posted by David S on Fri., Dec 7, 2012
A call to action and engagement for all who share our sense of injustice at the practices of the major record labels (spit spit) and our belief that there is a better way.
As many will know, DGM hosts THE VICAR CHRONICLES, semi-fictional stories about the inner madness of the music industry (“Sherlock Holmes meets Spinal Tap”), which have grown into a groundbreaking multimedia project covering Novels, Graphic Novels, Videobooks, Audiobooks and the first Songbook by The Vicar himself – a project that would normally need the financial and marketing clout of those self-same major labels (more spitting and cursing).
This project deserves to succeed on its own merits, not on the “unmarketing” of which we were recently accused on the DGM Live website.
QUOTABLE QUOTES ABOUT THE VICAR
“I would like to put on public record right now, once and for all: I AM NOT THE VICAR” - Brian Eno
“The Vicar saves musicians. Simple.” – Emma B
“The Vicar? Half Budhha, half backstreet ****” – Nick Cave
“Throughout my life I’ve frequently found myself, metaphorically speaking, sat on the Vicar’s knee…” - David Sylvian
“Since working with the Vicar I can NEVER...EVER feel the same way about Alpacas…” – Andy Partridge
“THE VICAR is a genius. He didn’t pay me to play on his record, but he paid me to say that.” - Bill Rieflin
“All we are saying, VICAR, is Give Drums a Chance” – Bill Bruford
The wondrous world of The Vicar is only a click away on iTunes and Amazon. Dear Innocents, please sample, share and part with your hard-earned pay if you deem the Vicar project worthy; and even if you don’t. Along the way, perhaps we can discover and create an alternative model for this industry.

The first video from The Vicar Songbook has just landed on YouTube.
As Punk Sanderson has been saying in his various missives, this is a perfect Christmas message, while also being completely unfestive. Does that make The Vicar a grouchy grinch-like spoil sport?
As the humble songwriter, awed by the arrangements, the animation and the contribution of Andy Yorke, I would argue that it's perfect for any occasion.
Hankerchiefs at the ready.
Vicar Chronicles arrive in Broadchalke
:: Posted by David S on Tue., Dec 4, 2012
A slightly tardy announcement (owing to the extensive liquid celebrations), and one which will no doubt be described in greater detail in various diaries - but six pallets of Vicar Chronicles landed safely at DGMHQ on Friday.
The digital versions for Kindle and iPad are already on sale, with the hard copies released on 28th January. 448 pages of joyful dribblings by Punk Sanderson. Time to get Vicared!
Two More Vicar Tracks
:: Posted by Stormy on Tue., Dec 4, 2012
The next two tracks from Songbook #1 are now available as the new Stormy Hot tickle. Will these end up on Youtube?

My thanks to Thomas M who points our attention thusly: "The French pocket trumpet player Médéric Collingon will play King
Crimson pieces in Paris on Friday night. It’s not his first try and, as
seen on youtube (a great interview in French with video),
it’s really good. Last year, he played with 8 string players (plus his
regular band on drums, bass and keyboards). This year, the band will be even bigger. It’s a wonderful jazzy rendition of King Crimson, a proof of fame ?"

While Sidney Psychedelia Smith tours the taverns of Sweden, our man Punk Sanderson continues to do battle with The Twitter Fiction Festival. He has apparently inveigled his way into the favour of @GuardianBooks and the organisers, @TwitterBooks,
On the other hand, I understand that at the close of play today, he only had around 83 followers - so anyone who enjoys a tweet, may wish to check out @punksanderson or #twitterfiction.
Twitter Fiction Festival
:: Posted by David S on Wed., Nov 28, 2012
DGM has dipped a toe into the murky waters of the Twitter Fiction Festival, which started today and runs for five days.
@punksanderson is tweeting a Vicar Chronicle as part of #twitterfiction - so any twitterati please feel free to follow him there. I suspect a single visitor would double his audience!
Punk is a smelly little man
