You just know it's going to be a mix of muso mumbling and egomaniacal melancholia. There will be tears in The House of Karn before it is all over.

Great to come back to some exciting news - looking forward to reading it - had sort of hoped that there would be some news re. Manafon but noooooo - that was obviously being far too optimistic :roll:

If Mick does an ugly hatchet job on Sylvian then any chance of them working together ever again is kaput. The possibilities. Think about the future. Poor Mick. I saw him on Youtube playing with some Japanese oik called Kirito. The fey Oriental rocker is such a ... Mick. Mick. Mick...

for some reason I don't think Mick would ever want to work with David again. He seems to be pretty content making his own records (as he should be, they're great).

I would love it if Mick & David worked together again but I don't have too much hope that it will happen. I also hope that Mick is truthful but not vicious when he write about David. I can't wait until this book comes out!

I know someone who has read a few chapters of the book and apparently it will give us everything we have wanted to know about as fans - it's a great read, is very open, and Mick does not shy away from being critical. I have been told absolutely no spoilers though - I can't wait to read it myself!

As it will be self-published we should encourage as many fans as possible to order the book - Mick won't be making much money out of this and it's good that he wants to share it with us. As a self-published book it's likely to go out of print quickly - so like the "Trophies" books will become a Japan collectible and rise in value quickly. My advice would be not to hesitate and order the book as soon as the info is announced. If Mick receives a lot of orders in advance it will be easy to get them fulfilled - leave it too long and you might miss out!

Mick's autobiography is the best book ever but how amazing would it be if Richard and Steve wrote their autobiographies. Do you think they ever will?
