There’s new Alice interviews at ‘Creative Loafing‘, NME. and WOUB, while Alice also turned up on Eddie Trunk’s ‘Trunk Nation’ show (subscription only) during which Alice reveals that he’s working on two new albums with the first, presumably the ‘Road’ album, hopefully due sometime this year.
If you’ve been following Dennis Dunaway and his ‘Cold Cold Coffin’ film you will know that people who pledged to the fundraising campaign have been receiving a vinyl album called ‘And So It Began’ in return for their support. Excess copies of the album are now available to buy via Good Records in clear or blood red vinyl, with three slightly different sleeves. The album includes various demos including the original demos for ‘Fireball’ and ‘The Sound Of A’. Grab a copy while they last now via Good Records, but beware of postage and customs charges if you’re not in the US.
