Menchulica from Spain (Grande Canaria) asked me recently if it would be okay to use one of our sound tracks for a video. The result came back today and I was for once speechless. The video echoes the chilling sparce arrangement of the music but launches the viewer into another dimension of organic symbology and a true visual experience. Great Video Art. Thanks Menchu . . .

The UK's largest Independent Music distribution company
Pinnacle Entertainments last week filed for bankruptcy.
A.I.M. the UK Association of Independent Music, have quickly responded and made legal presentation to limit the damage to the Labels. But Pinnacle represented a large long-term and important player in the UK Supply Chain. So there will undoubtedly be other casualties in the near future.
So although this news might present a bleak short-term picture,
maybe it will be
the marching call
to re-invigorate and re-invent
UK INDEPENDENT Music.
