With your kind permission. Those fortunate enough to receive Metamatic emails would have read with delight the following:John E-Mailed me earlier today with a brief update about his ongoing projects with Robin Guthrie, Harold Budd, Bill Nelson, Steve Jansen, Theo Travis and Louis Gordon...
"Robin [Guthrie] and I are finishing off an album now. Plays a blinder. Very pleased to work with him. Harold and Bill and I are in touch and working out how to go about it. Haven't managed to finish work on Steve and Theo's marvellous materials, but will as soon as I get some time. Just finished two solo albums 'Tiny Colour Movies' and 'Imaginary Music'. 'Tiny Colour Movies' will be out soon. Presently working on two albums with Louis plus the 'Cathedral Oceans' DVD. Another couple of projects are also chain smoking in maternity."
I understand that "Tiny Colour Movies" (which was originally going to be called "Musique Electron") is an album of predominantly electronic music (in a similar vein to Neu! and Brian Eno), whilst "Imaginary Music" is 'similar' in style to "Cathedral Oceans". As ever, full details regarding the progress of all of these projects will be posted on Metamatic just as soon as the details have been confirmed.
Splendid. That's our John!
