Finally more news from TTY:

US dates will now precede the projected tours of New Zealand and Australia for 2009. Years of refusal now has a release date of February 23rd, which will also see the start of a lengthy US tour. New Zealand and Australia will now follow the US dates.
BMG issue a redesigned and re-mastered Southpaw Grammar, and Universal issue a redesigned and re-mastered Maladjusted one week after Years of refusal.
The new album is preceded by I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris as a single release. CD1 and CD2 will be supported by two new songs Because of my poor education and Shame is the name. Both songs were recorded with Jerry Finn as part of the refusal sessions, and Shame is the name features additional vocals by Chrissie Hynde.

Our Aussie members would be delighted with this news, too bad most of them stopped posting, we had a 3 or 4 really active Australain members here but they somehow vanished. :(

Hopefully he does not wait too long to announce the European dates now. Moz, please come to Czech Republic, we need some good music here!! I am tired of all those bars playing Right Said Fred, Madonna, Wham and Modern Talking ... Come to Prague!!!

Wow- that video is dull as hell- so blank and bare. The necklace is also weird, but the important thing is that the song is going to be stuck in my head (and heart :-P) for goodness knows how long. Weird song, I like it.

It's an ok video, nothing fantastic or done on a mega budget. If it gets played on TMF, MTV or whatever, it will serve its purpouse.
I like Moz in jeans and in blue but not too keen on that amount of eyeshadow.
The addition of the dogs made the video a bit different otherwise we would have just the lads playing a-la-Last-of-the-famous.
Glad Chris Pooley is not in it. He might be a talented musician in his own rights but definitely not Mikey Farrell.

"Best Friend on the Payroll" :D

That is one of his best titles to date, and that says a lot. 8)

Indeed.
And CP: shave? Oh dear, can't a man be a real man anymore! *ahem* I mean, speaking from a certain perspective, mature men do have their place. :D

And I won't bother making any references to a "seven inch single"
:P
