Ebay auction of original artwork by Dave Kirkwood, proceeds to Teenage Cancer:
From James' Facebook:
In A Broken Dream
I did this as a Twitter/FB thing - bit of fun, record a cover version.. did it in a day in my kitchen. The idea for the song was suggested by Dave Kirkwood who I was involved with on the fantastic 3hundredand65 project in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust http://www.3hundredand65.co.uk/
The original is such a coruscating slab of rock, I felt I had to approach it differently.
There was something about it when I recorded it, I don't know, just felt like I'd captured,"something". I thought, why not release it? I've given away plenty of free downloads, why not see if folk will pay 50p, a quid, whatever..for it. Let's see what happens.
I had to get in touch with the original publishers, never having done anything like this before, so I sent them it. They called me right away and said that they loved it - that's why it's taken so long..been talking to them. As I say, we'll see..
It should be ready for download by the weekend, I'll keep you posted obviously.
It's a digital only release and will be available on itunes, amazon, 7digital, Spotify etc. etc.
Dave Kirkwood is a fantastic artist, he very kindly offered to do the artwork.
I think it's stunning.
This is a one-off. I've decided to auction this on ebay, all proceeds go to Teenage Cancer Trust. I'll sign it if the winner so wishes..http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130851237361

As I once mentioned in the EBM-post... EBM got me badly. And this is one from that particular time:
01 The Machineries of Joy (Wahre-Arbeit Mix)
02 The Machineries of Joy (Die Krupps Mix)
03 The Machineries of Joy (True Work Mix)
04 Join the Rhythm of Machines
I really had a good time I must say and not all of my friends understood the stuff. Even more as my roots are made of solid punk wood.
