Re: Paint My Name In Black and Gold: The Next Phase

Just noticed this on the Unbound website: "It’s getting close. Pre-order a reward now – the supporter list is closing at 11pm (BST) on Sunday 23 May 2021". Therefore it seems there are only a few days left to pledge and get your or someone else's name in the book. Seems logical since it's off to the...

"A vision of heaven with everyone on speed"

The last of my "where is that from?" questions.

It's Eldritch describing the 'Body and Soul' 12". My memory says it's an MR press release. I've seen it, but can't relocate it.

Can anyone give a source? Even a link or an image?

Thanks!

"Kierkegaard meets Elvis"?

Can someone tell me where this Eldritch-On-Eldritch quote originally comes from? It's often reused, but ... originally?

Re: Paint My Name In Black and Gold: The Next Phase

My final manuscript went to Unbound in August. So about 12 months from then ... Took a few months more than I was expecting to complete: not Covid-related, more to do with increased participation from band members. (No, not that one). Since we hit 100%, it took me a year to write. It was never the p...

Re: Paint My Name In Black and Gold: The Next Phase

Just a brief update before we see the back of 2020 ... the structural (or development) edit has been completed. Nothing major needed, so minimal re-writing. It is going for detailed copy editing early in January. Same time as the legal read. Unbound have chosen their cover image - very, very familia...

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 ...
