At the moment, everything depends on the government and some form of treatment. We will do whatever is best. But, at the moment, I know as much as you do.

No, sadly that has happened a lot. We tried to get the rights of both albums from Castle Communications some time ago, well EMI tried on our behalf. We wanted everything "under one roof", as it were, but we didn't manage it.

Well, you could say that about any band. I mean the Rolling Stones were starving at one point in their career, y'know what I mean?

Bet they sell out, Chris. Not many people saw that line up. Next to no gigs for probably over a year by the time they're doing it, so there will be a hunger for a live show etc.

At the moment we're in the same boat as everyone else. All depends on what the government says. Of course, it would help if they knew their arse from their elbow...
