It's all good
Well, let's say, for the sake of argument, that Viva Hate gets a release in a couple of months' time, and that the rumours of the Wolverhampton gig being an extra (see thread above) are right, whether audio or DVD. I'd buy it.
I hope he retains/reinstates Anton Corbijn's sublime cover sleeve photograph. I think they fell out over a video shoot aeons back, which partially explained the new EMI Centenary Edition cover by Eamonn McCabe in 1997.
He'll probably end up sticking a Linder shot from 1999 or somesuch on it. As is his wont
So...despite the fiasco of recent EMI reissues flaming the ire of Moz (and understandably so in my ridiculously humble opinion) after a successful seance and contact with a past life I know for a FACT fact fans that 'Viva Hate' has been remastered, extra track'd up and is ready to run screaming for love from the EMI fun factory of dreams.
That is unless the recent Very Best Of Glamorous Glue debacle hasn't caused future releases to come err...'unstuck'.
My spirit guide assures me that she may return with more detailed info if we all touch hands and close our eyes some Thursday evening in the near future...
Ok. At the bitching hour yesternight my spirit guide woke me violently, my bed took fire and curtains whipped the air... Purgatory was all a flutter - News from T'Other Side is that 'Viva's fate is Viva States' - IF there is still a reissue it is being done in the USA now. 'London is dead, London is dead' she repeatedly hissed into my ear - a very sinister refrain. Make of that what you will friends, but please spare a thought for all those wandering lost souls without i-pods...or taste...
