This is great! I've only seen him live once but I was a little the worse for beer - would love to see him again.

I only have one of his albums - the one with Ivy Dunn on it. Is that a recent one?

He's recorded three albums but only one has been released(in 2003). The other two - a piano instrumental album and a "songs" album - were recorded in 2004 and we're still waiting. The last word was that they'd be out in either June or July of this year, but that obviously hasn't happened.

There is also apparently a North Sea Radio Orchestra album sitting on a shelf somewhere, also recorded ages ago. What is going on?

There's this one, too.

There's some/most of another song that I can put up as well, but I don't know what it is. It's an instrumental if anyone would like me to put it up there.

Ah, this is great - cheers Mog! Where's it filmed? Great quality. Feel free to post as much as you like!

Hm. It was filmed at 'Lark in the Park', but I don't know too much about that. It was just something I'd run across on Soulseek, and I thought I'd share it. I was surprised at the quality. There is also a Stars in Battledress video from the same show taken by the same person, so the quality is just as good. I don't know anything about them at all except that they are Cardiacs fans, but if anyone is interested I can put that up, too.

Mog, can you upload it somewhere, where people can download the videos as well. Youtube is great, but you can only watch the videos, not download.

I can do that. I don't have anywhere to upload to at the moment, though, as my websites server is down right now.. I suppose I could use Yousendit or something.

Either way, it's nice to have things on YouTube. Everyone can view it there.

I will definitely look into getting them up online somewhere though.

*edit*

I just tried YouSendIt, but it seems to be taking forever. Any suggestions? The William D. Drake and Stars in Battledress files are both about 100 MB.

I was at that Lark In The Park gig! I spoke to the guy who filmed bits of it, too, but I've forgotten his name. I remember trying (in vain) to persuade him to capture the SiB songs that weren't on their album. That's my voice heckling Bill at the start of Ghosty Ghost, too! If you've got the same three clips I have, then the instrumental one is probably the piece Bill plays at the start of his gigs, which (if memory serves) is called Dolceana and is named after his harmonium!
