Direct link to the cd on german amazon, let me know if this works for you in UK!
https://www.amazon.de/Land-Overdose-TV-Smith/dp/B07FDMY36C/ref=tmm_acd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=

Question then?  Does Teev get just royalties from Amazon et al. or the "full cost"?  Or are we best to wait until we hand over cash to the man himself...

Well I don't know any details, but I'm sure amazon gets a "cut" from the sales, so I guess it is better for TV to buy from him at the gigs.
Btw, TV announced "obviously I'll have copies available by mail order through this site", which should be good & easy!
(Apparently we can't order directly from JKP, they give links to jpc, amazon etc., thus what remains is shop, mailorder or the merch table?)

Wow, looks like it was worth it for EKT to set the alarm!  :D

Thanks for the exclusive news, TV! Getting excited about the new album now... track list & song titles sound promising!

Perfect timing btw, this is my post #9999 here! It's wonderful that I can post it about album news.  8)

Uh-oh, TV said "on the 20th", it might be at 23.59 on that day!
I'll just look in whenever I can... (morning, noon...).

Well, I still do go to the cinema from time to time, but I prefer the small ones where you can watch a movie in original language with subtitles and so on. (Next up I might watch "Sicario 2".)

David Cronenberg, the director of Crash and Naked Lunch, delivered a damning verdict on the medium of cinema at the Neuchatel International Fantasy Film Festival in Switzerland, an event he is attending as member of the international jury.

“I don’t go to the cinema any more. [in Neuchâtel] I’ve seen more movies than I’ve seen in the last five years. [The jury] are seeing 16 films. I don’t think I’ve been to the cinema 16 times in the last five years. In that sense, for me, that cinema is already dead,” the Canadian director told Screen.

“However, filmmaking is not dead. Image-making is not dead. Cinema becomes something else. It is no longer the cathedral that you go to where you commune with many other people.”
...
“I started to think maybe the cinematic equivalent of the novel is really a Netflix series that maybe goes on for five years or seven years,” he said on stage. “ Really, this is a new art form. It’s not like old television series. I am seeing some series I thought were really quite brilliant, like Tom Tykwer’s Babylon Berlin. Fantastic - and like a novel. I thought maybe the cinema as we know it is really writing a short story but if you want write a novel, then you have to do a series. I started to think maybe I am not finished with the cinema exactly if we think of the cinema as it is evolving…it is possible that instead of writing a novel, I would do a series for Netflix.”

From Chris Constantinou on FB:
Quote
Mutants founder members Chris Constantinou and Paul Frazer, plus Rat Scabies, are taking a break from the Mutants moniker for some fresh new projects.

Paul Frazer is busy with his band Black Futures (signed to Sony Music Entertainment).

CC and Rat are working on a new project to be recorded with Oliver Straus at Mission Sound in New York. This project will feature several amazing guests. Band name and new socials to be revealed soon!

CC will also continue his work with Killer Tracks/Universal LA as a featured writer - a position he's held since 2007. Additionally, CC has been working with Hal Lindes from Dire Straits, as well as continuing his guest work with bands such as The Dandy Warhols.

Rat Scabies is working on his own projects/releases and, as mentioned, an all-new project with CC

So it’s not goodby but a gentle adios from the Mutants...for now anyway.

After seeing Alejandro Escovedo with Don Antonio live last year, I guess the upcoming album is a "must" for me:

Quote
True to Escovedo's nature, the upcoming album comes with a curious twist: It was recorded with Don Antonio, a group of young Italian rockers he recently toured Europe with as a backing band. He developed such a strong bond with the band leader, Antonio Gramentiere, that they ended up writing the songs for the album after riding around Texas soaking in the open landscape and eating both pasta and tacos.

"Sonica USA" is the first single off the upcoming album and the track is a loud and boisterous reflection — featuring Wayne Kramer of MC5 on guitar — on Escovedo's youth growing up in Austin when he and his brother Javier played in a punk-before-it-was-punk band called The Zeros.

R.I.P. Steve Soto
https://www.ocweekly.com/steve-sotos-spirit-gets-a-punk-rock-send-off-from-family-and-friends/
Quote
Making his mark on the world as a founding member of  bands as far ranging as revered Fullerton band The Adolescents to ‘80s cover band Flock of Goo Goo (not to mention Agent Orange, Manic Hispanic, Joyride, Black Diamond Riders, a solo artist and the Punk Rock Karaoke supergroup), Soto’s loss has been almost too much for the punk community to bear.

But even in sorrow this past weekend, the punk community found the strength to celebrate Soto’s memory, first in the pews of Richfield Community Church in Yorba Linda and the next day in much louder, drunker surroundings at Alex’s Bar in Long Beach. Both times, Soto’s spirit was greeted with a packed house.

World Chat / Re: The Kinks - Will they play again?
« on: June 27, 2018, 08:30:08 AM »
In characteristically whimsical fashion, Kinks frontman Ray Davies told the BBC Monday that the group will be getting back together to record a new album after more than 20 years apart — although he seemed to hedge his bets by taking a call from drummer Mick Avory during the interview and saying he would see him in the pub later, then quipping: “The Kinks are getting back together…in the pub at least.”
