So where did the time go? Here's something of an explanation. Midway through 2007 British Telecom, who were hosting the site, decided to take away my write permissions for some reason. Maybe they wanted shut of pesky individual users. I did phone them to complain, but the official line was a scratch of the corporate head and a shrug of the shoulders. So I couldn't update these pages without moving to another web hoster. Time flew by and eventually at the end of October 2012, BT pulled the plugs on the site entirely. So I've moved all the files to a new host, rather than let Birdpoo die, and this seems like the ideal opportunity to spruce the place up and bring some of the band stories up to date. That Bob feature I mentioned? It's definitely coming.

It's been a while... a long while... but at last! An update! The Bodines section now has a Medlark 11 album review that I found in an old issue of 'Vox' magazine. I've also added some promo press photos of the Edsel Auctioneer to their main page. Also check out the Thrilled Skinny page for a link to their official Myspace page. It's been a lengthy hibernation, but there's been a flurry of activity on the BOB front recently, so expect some action there very soon. Further down the pipeline, a feature on the Venus Beads could be forthcoming. Watch this space!
