So what came after M&E began to fade quietly into the night? Well, it's not like everything stopped happening twelve years ago, life went on, all was not silent, at least not for a while anyway. The last published UWU Newszine was the New Year 2001 edition, so the purpose of this "issue" is to finally publish all the material I had gathered since and to see if it's possible to play catch-up with the particular network contacts involved. When you're sitting comfortably, I shall begin...

My age old notes tell me that the Alchemical Radio Show was put together by Terri B & The Reverend Rabbit, who I would suspect is none other than Tim Jones. If it isn't, it could well be a giant bunny in a dog collar. But let's assume for now that would be very silly and stick with the Tim Jones theory. Tim and Terri are the good folks behind Stone Premonitions, of course; think The Rabbit's Hat, Body Full Of Stars, Mr. Quimby's Beard and Shay, for example. This broadcasting appears to have happened in cahoots with Aural Innovations, the excellent American spacerock zine run by Jerry Kranitz. Anyway, they used to send us playlists and included lots of M&E bands (tracks listed), what nice people. Here are a few of the bits and bobs I had filed away...


Alchemical Radio (Part 11 - November 10, 2001)
Blue Apple Boy (formerly Sleepy People) - "Dead Man Walking"
Don Campau - "God Is A Monster"
Judge Trev - "Battle Of The Trees"

Alchemical Radio (Part 12 - November 10, 2001)
Robin O'Brien - "Summer"


Alchemical Radio (Part 15 - February 2002)
Lord Litter - "Dub Diablo"
Shay - "Closer To The Sun"

Alchemical Radio (Part 16 - February 2002)
Mr Quimby's Beard - "A Saucerful Of Secrets"
Lord Litter - "Take Me Back"
Shay - "The Storyteller"
Garfield's Birthday - "New York Mining Disaster"

So, what are Tim & Terri up to now? Is the radio show still going? As luck would have it, I'm in touch with both on Facebook, so I'll ask them... (UPDATE)

Germany next, home of  the Alphyen Viwit label and the band, Glaring Surge. Our friend in GŁtersloh was Michael Witlake, who kindly included a MMATT track (Purple Eyed & Mystified) on their "Breeze" compilation CD (Alphyen Viwit 006), probably over ten years ago now.

Annoyingly, I don't know any of the other bands on the album, so that won't make playing catch-up with the label any easier here. However, there's still a website up for Glaring Surge, though it's never easy to tell how current these things are, but I've tried the e-mail address and have me pinkies crossed that an answer shall be forthcoming shortly... (UPDATE)


Ivailo Tonchev of AON? Whew, now there's a name I haven't seen or heard for a decade or more. I promised I'd include this flyer in the next newszine (ahem). Is he still there? I have absolutely no idea, but I have a couple of e-mail addresses I can try to find out from... (No response)
