JOHN FOXX will release a new album with sometime collaborator LOUIS GORDON on November 6th and will play two November shows to coincide with the release, one at Manchester Academy and one at London's 93 Feet East - see GIGS for all the details.
DURAN DURAN guitarist ANDY TAYLOR is rumoured to have left the recently reunited band following problems between him and the band's management. BOY GEORGE, in collaboration with Amanda Ghost, is rumoured to be working on songs for the next KYLIE MINOGUE album. GEORGE MICHAEL is to be the subject of ITV's arts TV show The South bank Show on October 31st. The show will feature film from Michael's recent concert in Madrid, alongside footage shot at concert rehearsals and will feature a brand new interview with the singer who 'discusses his 25 year career as an artist, the contradictions in his culture, life and work, the press, Rupert Murdoch, falling asleep behind the wheel and marijuana'.
10CC will play shows in the UK and Denmark in February and March with KIKI DEE in support. The band will feature just GRAHAM GOULDMAN from the classic 10cc lineup and a collection of classic material will be released in advance of the tour featuring 10cc songs alongside solo Gouldman material, GODLEY & CREME and WAX hits and other side projects and will include two new songs from GG06 a collaborative project between Graham Goldman and Kevin Godley. The compilation, entitled 'Greatest Hits & More' will be released on November 13th. All the tour dates are in the GIGS section and the album tracklisting is in the NEWS section on the website.
ABC, HOWARD JONES and TOYAH have been forced to cancel the Skegness date of their current HITMAKERS TOUR, however it is now expected that all the remaining shows will go ahead as planned... see the website for my exclusive Hitmakers Tour micro-site for the dates plus interviews with all three artists and much more!
HOWARD JONES will play four German shows as a guest of Leslie Mandoki and will play two songs at each show supported by a full symphony orchestra. See GIGS for all the dates. ADAM ANT has been rumoured to be one of the participants in the next series of Celebrity Big Brother which will air in January, however a statement from Adam's management denies the star's involvement. MADNESS will have all the singles features on the recent 'Singles Box Set' collections released as downloads on December 4th. The releases will be grouped by box-set and will feature both a-sides and b-sides as well as demos and extended versions.
GRACE JONES will be at Cardiff's Millenium Stadium on November 3rd as part of a world record attempt to assemble the biggest group of people with the same surname!
