Jon Savage's new compilation "A Secret History of Second Wave Psychedelia 1988-1993" is released only on vinyl on April 27th on Caroline True Records. Alongside tracks by the Stone Roses, 808 State and Primal Scream, it also features everyone's favourite PSB experimental track, "The sound of the atom splitting". This track was inspired by a line in the Derek Jarman film, "The Last of England", and created during a studio jam session with Chris, Neil, Trevor Horn and Steve Lipson. Full release details at the link below.

This afternoon we went to the first run-through of the new production of "Closer To Heaven". Astonishing how far the cast have come in just over two weeks of rehearsals! The small Union Theatre is perfect for the club environment of the show and all the cast are excellent. Roll on press night next week! Neil x

We are proud to support Europride 2015 which takes place from June 15-21 in Riga, Latvia, a wonderful city we know well. Europride is a huge annual European LGBT event and this year is being held in a former Soviet country for the first time. It's a brilliant way to support and celebrate LGBT rights in a region where they still face much opposition. Love, Neil and Chris x
