It is the intention of the librarian to remove the text of such articles from the public library and only make them available to researchers who request an inter-library loan.

Bill's Back

By - (12 August, 1999, NME)

Former KLF/K Foundation man Bill Drummond has broken his lengthy musical silence to appear on the new Skyray album 'Mind Lagoons', released by Ochre records on August 30.

Going under the name Tenzing Scott-Brown, Drummond - ex manager of The Teardrop Explodes and Echo and the Bunnymen - narrates lyrics over the album's title track.

The album is the third release from ex-Teardrop Explodes keyboardist and Wild Swans singer Paul Simpson, who is now known as Skyray, and will also feature John Lawrence of Gorky's Zygotic Mynci and Alan Holmes of Ectogram and, most recently, The Serpents. Skyray will play UK dates soon.

Meanwhile, occasional Drummond collaborator Mark Manning aka Zodiac Mindwarp's as yet untitled new novel (described as "a psychotically rock'n'roll novel for the criminally insane") will be published in early 2000 by Attack Books.
