The Lionheart Brothers
Some of you probably already know but last year the Lionheart Brothers released one of their best records ever (as we may believe our A&R manager Minco) called Dizzy Kiss. We finally managed to get a few copies on cd and vinyl. Order the album now at youmakemusic.com.

The Hot Stewards
THS big in Japan? Check out this video. Still they are willing to talk with the Dutch broadcasting company, the NCRV in good old Zwolle, check out this lazy but funny interview with William and Roger Steward.

The Spirit That Guides Us
Next month, tstgu will do on another short tour in Holland and Germany. The Dutch shows will be with together with Face Tomorrow and John Coffey. Check tstgu’s myspace for tourdates.

Love,
Sally
