Metamatrix,

Sorry, I can't help you there. It'll have to be John's database Rob <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />

I'm sure that Hanging in the Air plus other unreleased tracks from TGS and IMW era would have formed part of the unreleased album Metadelic.

This plus Metatronic, Metamatica and Urban Motets were all scheduled for release in 2000. John was probably feeling rather elated at the time. He came back down to earth and decided to give priority to TPOE, release a Greatest Hits(Modern Art) and complete Cathedral Oceans 11.

I guess he wants to reserve these until it is commercially and musically right to release them.

Rob over to you....

Chris C

thanx again , dear chris , for your answer to my quest !!! smile

fyi : i've jus' listened to the short interview that john did in between the songs which he & peter griffiths played live @ the basement & he told the interviewer that "hanging in the air" was - @ that time , of course wink - his newest song that was jus' written 2 days before the performance & that it would be on the then new album "in mysterious ways" , which it wasn't , as we all know by now !!! frown

what a pity , as this was & still is - imho , of course - a really great song !!! shocked

maybe one fine day john will release it on one of the "lost" albums with his past gems then !? *indeed_utmost_hopeful_look*

anyway ... c u ! smile
