New releases and plans....
Fellini Days, the new Studio Album has been released on preorder. Cowritten by well known tour guitarist John Wesley and keyboarder John Young, this album has a lot more drive than the previous ones. Rocky, catchy and definitely worth a listen!
Besides that, the pre-fog concert of the RWZ tour in Poland has been released on a double CD called Sashimi. The Big difference from CiF is that Fish´s voice is in top form!

Not much news these days... After the RwZ-tour on the European leg was a financial loss again (due to illness, technical problems and lack of promotion), Fish decided to stop touring on a regular basis. The US-Minitour will take place, but after that gigs will be limited to special occasions (Fanclub, SAS-Band, etc.)
Fish will be releasing his next studio album "Fellini Days" around March/April this year.

"Fish - The BBC Sessions" have finally been released!!! There had been rumors for months as some suppliers had them listed, but not available. they contain the complete BBC radio recordings in superb quality. I know there have been a lot of boots containing excerpts of these recordings, but the quality of this "official recording" is far superior. Fish has added his comments in an eight page booklet.
Fish himself added some information in one of his mails to the Freaks/Fisheads-mailing list:
Dear Fishheads, Freaks, Fans and Company Members
The next single will be Tilted Cross. Fish has asked David Ginola, spokesman of the European landmine commission, to set the single up as a charity record to aid the refugees from Kosovo and the clearing of landmines in that area. The planned release date is late July.
Fish has always emphasized what he thinks of what happens in Yugoslavia ("... in Bosnia, we were two weeks late, in Kosovo, wer wer two weeks late again...") during the latest acoustic sessions. With the knowledge of this and his War Child gigs in Bosnia this is a powerful sign!!!
