Githead News - 21.10.06

Dear Githead Fan

Welcome to the latest edition of our occasional small but perfectly formed newsletter. Occasional? It's been quite a while! Well, we did promise not to spam you!

Firstly - an apology to all of you who have re-subscribed because you thought you'd dropped off the list. In fact in spite of no public band activity over the last year the number of subscribers to this list continues to swell as the number of hits on the website continues to grow on a month by month basis. Someone out there must love us!

OK, enough of the self congratulation, we do actually have some news to impart. We have been beavering away on the, as yet untitled, 2nd album over these past few months and have quite a lot of it already finished - tunes like These Days, Drive By, All Set Up, Jet Ear Game, Drop, Lifeloops and others we don't have final titles yet for will be hopefully brightening your lives in the early part of next year, perhaps earlier...... As part of the process this month we took a very successful trip to our live sound man Frankie Lievaart's new Metropolis 22 studio in Rotterdam for some live recording & additional recording on things we've already worked on. As usual the cameras were out in full and a little gallery page has been added on the site. We are now on to full on mixing to get it all finished!

Of course confining ones's internet presence to one website and a very occasional newsletter is a bit limiting in these web 2.0 days and in fact Githead's presence is spreading, virus like, through the internet. You can find Githead on Wikipedia, Last.FM , MySpace & Bebo. In fact we may be using these sites as well as githead.com to give some little upfront previews of the album so keep your eyes (& ears) peeled! And while on the subject of social networking on the internet most band members have various online presences, not always under their own names. Now I wonder who [headgit] might be? By the way many thanks to the splendidly named Stan Satin who has been manfully maintaining the Githead MySpace for the last year. And keeping with the internet theme, those seeking instant digital gratification might like to check out C&M's occasional radio show which gets archived here

On the products side, a small cache of Headgit (which has been out of stock at posteverything for several months) has been located so if you don't have a copy check in with posteverything.com next week. Also sorry that we didn't get round to making the large & XL GIT- shirts yet. We still have everyone who requested one's name on record and if anyone else is interested let us now through the form on the site. We will get round to making them, honest!

Anyhow, we'll try not to leave it so long until next mailing!

Love Githead

Welcome to the 4th edition of our newsletter, new bunnies and old lags alike will find within this slim piece of eye candy news, views and gossip direct from Git-HQ.

We are quietly slipping in new content to the downloads section of the site. There is now a video of "My LCA" (directed by Malka) for streaming & download also new wallpapers (actually bearing the correct URL!!) and MP3 are waiting your attention. Keep your eyes peeled also for further MP3s & videos.

The gallery has also received a makeover to accommodate the huge number of pictures from the recent European tour including , of course the many by the now (almost) legendary nightly "audience photographer", a '"responsible looking" person selected at random from the audience to document proceedings with Colin's camera. Many thanks to all those embarrassed (and not so embarrassed!) individuals who have aided Githead in their quest for forensically extensive documentation. We are still receiving submissions of images. If you have some you want to post to us on CD then you can find a postal address here - Read more.

Welcome to the third edition of our newsletter, something which appears to be coming out with alarming regularity. Surely there can't be more things to say??? It appears there are!

Firstly - a small but significant change - from githead.co.uk to githead.com - The old addresses still work but the site will now resolve to it's githead.com variant whichever address you put in. If you have linked pages to us in the past, please make sure you update them so we can quickly regain premier status on the google listings.

If resetting your bookmark has prompted a trip to the site then you will also be greeted with the big news is that there is going to be a Githead tour in September. While these mere 9 dates may not challenge the earth-striding extravaganzas of others they do represent a significant step for Githead as in a 2 week span we will have more than doubled our gig tally (currently 7)!!
The dates are - Read more.

Those of you on reasonably swift internet connections might like to check out the following link, trawled up by our ceaselessly active web monkeys, on the Studio Brussel site...
