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.

Dear Everybody,

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 DADA002. (dadaphonic/SRD). In USA the album is released on Instinct/Rykodisc (Cat no INS617-2.)

Album is also available thru Dadaphonic Mailorder. Other cranes CDs, vinyl, books etc can be found there and also a new set of postcards has just been added. And the Future Songs T.Shirts are only 10 now, so check it out if you'd like one, as we won't be making any more of this one ! Thanks !

We recently updated the site with some new pictures on the front page etc, and have added some new free mp3's from the live album and Submarine EP to download from the audio section. Hope you like them ! Please send any comments to Bye for now !
