Dadaphonic-Cranes Newsletter December 2003
Hello again !
Thanks for the great response to our question about releasing Cranes in
Scandinavia. We were introduced to a company called VME (who also
distribute all the WARP artists, 4AD artists and many more in Scandinavia)
and are happy to let you know that they will distribute 'Live in Italy' LP
and 'Future Songs' LP in Denmark too! Those two albums will be in the
shops there in about a month. We have also contacted by an indie label in
Finland called 'If Society' so those albums will be available in Finland
too ! We've been invited to play in Finland and Denmark and so this means
we will possibly be touring in Northern Europe next spring. We'll let you
know more in the next newsletter.
The new album is coming along. Not finished yet, but lots of new songs
starting to come together.
We recently came across a few boxes of vinyl and some CD's at Dadaphonic
that we have decided to add to the mail order list. These things are in
very limited numbers but might be of interest to collectors, so we thought
we'd add them to the list. You can order them at Dadaphonic Mailorder.

Thanks for the great response to the live album ! We're really glad you
like it. It has been nice to receive all your messages. Thanks ! We had a
great time at the gig in London last Saturday too. The venue (Bush Hall)
is lovely, like an old theatre, and it was a really nice evening, with
Michael Sheehy playing too. We filmed the whole gig on three cameras and so
sometime later this year we may release a DVD of the show plus some other
cranes footage from other tours and things. We'll let you know how it goes!
Also wanted to let you know that 'Live in Italy' is now released into shops
in the UK and USA. You should be able to find it at major chains in the UK,
like HMV plus some independent stores but if your local shop doesn't have
it, please ask them to order it in for you! The catalogue number is
