I just ordered the new release by The Nines, due out in a couple of weeks. Also I plan on ordering the new Anderson Council cd. Both bands are XTC-influenced (Andy co-wrote a Nines song once, and AC have a song called Partridge).
Gentlemen, you can't fight in here--this is the war room.
In case it actually interests anyone beyond myself, Ivan the singer/leader of MWH has a personal Facebook page and on occasion has posted about the album when in progress as well as stating more recently it's done. It's so low key a presence/announcements that I've seen virtually no music sites mention it. Kinda sad as I think he is very talented. I wrote my dissertation listening heavily to the last album, Human Leagues most recent (Credo) aanand lots of Scissor Sisters. So I'm super excited.
Further update, he is now signed to a record company for the newest releases. Date still TBA. Apparently TWO albums, one being new MWH material the other a covers album. I thought their cover of Abba's SOS was actually pretty good.
