You can’t Beatle too much …

Filed under: Uncategorized @ 9:05 am

Hi All – We had a neat night last night with the launch of the new New Artland series and an art auction fund-raiser for the Stroke Foundation of New Zealand. In excess of $40,000 dollars was raised so a big round of applause goes to Russell, Gemma & Cathy for organising the event. Thanks to all the artists who contributed work, and thanks to Sean, Paul, and Will for the music. My own thanks to Sam and Selena for helping out with the PA and lights. Thanks to everyone else for singing happy birthday to me!

Poor Chris has been laid out with a filthy cold this week. Monday was particularly rough on him – coughing & spluttering and delivering foul specimens to the world from the dank abyss that his lungs had become. However he’s been improving & he wanted to come to the launch last night, but the decision was made that he was still too unwell to attend.

Curses to the person that bid $300 on the Beatle mono box-set thus removing it from my clutches!

    Great news on the fund-raiser,….too bad about the cold,though.

    By the way,what’s with the Beatle MONO Box? Has it been withdrawn before the new release? It is pulled off of At least it sez,”sign-in for updates on future availablity”.

    Anyway,hang in there for strange Beatle-ness coming to you….”wink,wink”….

    Hi everybody. I hope you find this article about Edwyn Collins and Grace Maxwell experiences encouraging. Edwyn is back recording and gigging and certainly seems to have had a far worse medical situation than Chris.
    I have already sent a copy of Grace’s book to the PO Box.
    Keep up the good work.
    Mike H.

    Cheers Robyn the red head @ Dunners

    They say it’s your birthday (soon). It’s getting better everyday. Here comes the sun.

    Can I request a reunion of Wall of Dwarfs for a new TD album? I think we all owe Chris some music (he sang at my 21st way back when!) so some crowd singing could be due.
