Re: The Quietus podcast reappraising Floodland

I write for them very occasionally and was offered a free subscription, but paid anyway. The Quietus are well worth supporting with money. No tQ articles, no Paint My Name In Black and Gold ... so I'm personally grateful. Have listened to half the podcast so far. Plenty to annoy and fascinate, mainl...

Paint My Name In Black and Gold: The Next Phase

The publication date is still TBC. Not March 2020. I have a manuscript of well over 100,000 words, which I've been working on since we hit 100%. 85,000 will go to Unbound very soon. The rest is being shaped into 'White Rose Babylon' Some of this I will start to slip out in the form of Updates in 202...

Paint My Name In Black and Gold: The Next Phase

Indeed, though I would never have described the 80s Fav as Victorian. Could they have meant the Royal Park? I think you might be right: it might not be the Fav, the 'local' in 1982. It's website says "Est. 1947". Is that when it was built or when it became a hotel? Don't know. Could it be that John...

I'm in the minority on Sandstorm then, and fair enough. Makes me really excited about the book, though. I've re-read this a couple of times and it's really interesting stuff for "click bait". Thank you. I think having "Sandstorm" anywhere near this list puts a person in the minority. The painful om...

Fantastic journalism Mark - you've forensically dissected the songs lyrically and musically and laid Eldritch's soul bare for all to see and thereby better appreciate his unique talent. I would have the same songs as you in the top 3, even though I have spent the past thirty-five + years being one ...

96% now! :notworthy: What might be a silly question: I assume with these things there's always a certain percentage of backers who pull out, for whatever reason. Are allowances for that percentage built into the funding goal? So in other words, if 10% pull out on average, is the funding goal booste...

Any idea when the book will be published? Timescale goes like this: when 100% os reached, I write it. I aim to submit an 85,000 manuscript by the end of the year. Then, Unbound do their thing as a publisher. That can vary. So there isn't a set date, but it will be in 2020. Playing devil's advocate,...
