Kindly Leave The Stage

Stephens Doyle and Perrin (right).

Listen here to Steve Perrin's recent appearance on Stephen Doyle's Sonic Diary on Salford City Radio. In this show the first track from the forthcoming third and final album is debuted, and the title of the album is also confirmed as 'Kindly Leave The Stage'. Steve confirms that the slightly delayed 'Parabolically Yours' book set is indeed still happening, and that we might expect it early next year.

Also, while discussing the Nick Halliwell remixes of 'Nobody's Perfect', which may or may not feature in PY, the intriguing prospect of some mono tracks from the debut was also raised! There is much more as well, including some choice Antipodean musical delights chosen by Steve. Next up will be links to Steve's Friday night appearance on Mick Middles' show on FAB Radio International.
