First the music. I was privileged to hear an early listening copy of the CGT, Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto album. This is the future of good progressive music. A wonderful group of people have made a wonderful album. Time for the good fairy to step out perhaps?
And then the business. I also got a confidential phone call about a proposed record contract with Sanctuary (not connected with the above music meisters). Ownership of all copyrights, recordings as works for hire, ownership of the band's URLs, all recordings ever made by any member of the band?
This must surely be a bad joke.
I was also told the email address of the lawyer who drafted this contract - but perhaps I will not publish that. Yet.
On a different matter, Luke Hutchence and Donbledore are looking for seconds for their forthcoming duel, Brooklyn Bridge 5am. Sunday morning. Words at 20 paces.
