I usually try to avoid posting straight-up news items on my blog, leaving that task to sites like Avant Music News (or for the more neo/symph prog-inclined, the excellent DPRP news pages). But Chris Cutler’s recent post to the ReRmegacorp Yahoo group has me too excited to not mention it. Cutler outlines ReR’s plans for 2006, which include some things that had me practically jumping out of my seat this morning:
- The This Heat box set announced last year should be ready May 10th.
- Remastered, repackaged versions of both News From Babel albums.
- New CDs from Chris Cutler/Fred Frith (duo), Biota, and The Necks.
- “Possibly some unreleased Henry Cow material… maybe a set of two or three cds.”
Unreleased Henry Cow material? What’s this? Live stuff, or actual unreleased compositions? Either way, if this came to fruition I’d be one hell of a happy camper. Keeping my fingers crossed!
