We have to start by saying a BIG thank you to Colin Ellett who spent ages looking after the previous site. Colin sourced loads of information and without him this would be a very small site indeed. In fact it was Colin’s communication with the band (via Stan) which made the unofficial site the sort of official one. The old site did have more content that we couldn’t rescue – if you have a look at the credits you’ll notice that there were some video’s etc which we couldn’t restore. If you have any stuff you would like to see on the site then please send us a copy and get your name on the credits list. This also applies to cake.
