Ray Wilson Updates Fans On New Stiltskin CD

According to Ray himself, he has spent the last six months recording the new Stiltskin CD, entitled Lemon Yellow Sun, which will be released in the spring next year. He is currently looking for licensing deals in different countries, so no distribution for the release is in place at this time. The line up for the new Stiltskin album, as revealed here first in my April 2005 interview is: Ray Wilson, Nir Z, Alvin Mills, Uwe Metzler, Irvin Duguid, and Scott Spence. Stay tuned for more information as I get it!

Peter Gabriel Talks About I/O and a Proposed Genesis Reunion In The August Issue of Mojo

In the August issue of the UK music magazine, Mojo (page 24), Peter Gabriel talks about progress on his next solo album, tentatively known as O/I. The article says that Gabriel recorded a few demo-type tracks in 2003 which have been provisionally remixed by Tchad Blake. Among the tracks allegedly included is a new version of the old b-side "Curtains." He is reported to be working on the album through the rest of the year, although Gabriel would not commit to a release date (no surprise there!). 

He also shares that he was offered a significant amount of money to do a Genesis reunion, but turned it down. Definitely worth picking up... even if it only spans one page! If you live in North America, imported copies are just hitting stores now.

Error On Official Chester Thompson Site Leaves Fans Seeing Purple

On the official Chester Thompson site, fans will notice that the website that comes up is actually the official site for the band Deep Purple. The web designer/hosting company, Rockit Factory also maintains the official site for Deep Purple, and this is obviously a temporary error. I have notified the company so that the actual Chester Thompson site will be restored to it's proper place.

Peter Gabriel To Release Two New DVDs; Offers Free Download of "Darkness" (Demo)

According to the official Peter Gabriel site, there are two new double DVDs in the works: Africa Calling - Live 8 at Eden and Peter Gabriel - Still Growing Up, Live and Unwrapped. More details on these forthcoming releases should be announced soon.
