Wow. Count me as super excited that Jerry is recording a new album. I honestly didn't think there was any hope of such a thing ever coming true. While I don't expect to ever see it released, perhaps J ...

Maybe we'll even finally hear some of Jerry's new music next year as well.

Do we have any reason to really believe this? Or are you just guessing? Because new music from Jerry Dammers after all th ...

So I'll be honest, I've wanted new Jerry Dammers music for a while. Still do. Even if it was just like a digital single of "First Victim of War."

But even though we are not getting that, my ears ar ...

Also the whining about how long the album took, both on the PledgeMusic site and on here, is ridiculous. Making music isn't like making a hamburger. Inspiration comes and goes. And recording isn't sim ...

It feels more like a Dave Wakeling solo record than a Beat one. Or a General Public-type of album.

As much as music changes with time and circumstance, I miss the unorthodox approach to music that ...

I haven't read the article but there's an interview Pauline did with Garry Bushell five years ago which deals with this - have a listen from 42.46 to about 47.00.

Umm...is it just me or does it seem like Pauline Black has pretty much fucked over Neol Davies? So she decided to tour without him even though he was ill and then later kicked him out of the band (a b ...

There was supposed to be a Spatial AKA album at one point- but things move slowly on the Jerry front - but never say never but the Spatials seem to have gone quiet.

So no more Spatial AKA now eithe ...

Well then. I guess that's that. Guess either nobody cares or nobody has an opinion on this.

Or more possibly, they are about as hopeful as I am that Jerry will ever release new music.

Can anybody tell me why this extremely talented guy has not felt the urge to release an album (or even a single) in like 30 years? It's ridiculous. Even just "First Victims of War" would be great to h ...

He seems too like mentioning Roddy alot? Confused

Probably because it seems as though Jett, err...Roddy, projected what seemed to be a pretty shitty attitude toward ol' Jerry.

And the fact that instea ...
