Motti launched a weekly Steven Wilson radioshow on the internet with John Comisky!

Here are the details:

 

It will broadcast weekly for at least 6 months (we think that with the rate of releases we'll be able to continue for a few years !!!).

 

THE RADIOACTIVE SHOW:
Steven Wilson Special Internet Radio Show

Starting March 5, 2003, "Progtastic Radio" will be broadcasting a series of
weekly special shows featuring music from Steven Wilson's different
projects. This will be one of the first shows to play a mixture of the
varied scope of SW's music, ranging from atmospheric landscapes through
jazzy/rock tunes to heavy metal rock. John Comisky and Motti Gini will
include in their show music by Porcupine Tree, No-Man, IEM, Bass Communion,
and collaboration projects such as: JBK, Fish, Opeth, Blackfield, and OSI,
to name a few.
The same 1.5 hour long show will be broadcasted weekly, twice on Wednesdays
and three times on Saturdays at different hours, so that fans from all over
the world can go online and listen to the music. The broadcast hours are as
follows:

For American countries:
Wednesdays at 10:00 pm EST / 7:00 pm PST
Saturdays at 8:00 pm EST / 5:00 pm PST

For European, African and Middle-Eastern countries:
Wednesdays at 8:00 pm GMT / 22:00 Jerusalem Time
Saturdays at 6:00 pm GMT / 20:00 Jerusalem Time

For Eastern Asia and Oceania countries:
Saturdays (only) at 6:00 pm Tokyo Time / 10:00 pm Auckland Time

To listen to the show go to
www.live365.com/stations/jdckmc or click on the
banner. Once at the station's homepage, click the "play" button and follow
the on-screen listening instructions (check the "Broadcast Schedule" tab for
your local time). The setup is very easy to follow and absolutely free!!
So tune-in, lean back, kick your shoes off and... let the music take you...

Hello fellow porkies!

 

It's been now 2 weeks that In Absentia has been released in the USA, and as you know, it will be released in Israel early january.

 

Here is a list of direct links where you can already buy it on line. The prices are amazingly cheap at the moment:

We will soon make a fan meeting in order to listen to it, as well as one or two shows they played this summer in the USA. The occasion for you to hear live the new drummer, Gavin, both on new songs and old numbers, as well as John Wesley, the new touring member, on guitar and backing vocals. John Wesley, also known as Wes, is not unknow to the family: he was discovered by Marillion in 1994, where he was a guitar technician for Steven Rothery, and he also opened the shows during the 'Brave Tour' with his acoustic solo set. Later, he worked with Fish and composed most of his 'Fellini Day' album.

 

They also played Dark Matter again during those summer shows, which hadnt been played since the Signify tour. No date or venue has been set yet.

 

You will find the new album darker and more radical than anything the band did before, flirting with metal but keeping the unique multi-layered sound with all its subtilities that we love so much. The vocal harmonies are more beautiful than ever.

 

I'm eager to meet you all, I'll be back in Israel from Europe on the 14th of october.

 

Take care and keep the vibes coming!

 

Alex

Introduction and Tinto Brass new website


Dear all!!

 

I have the pleasure to introduce myself, I'm Alex, I made alyah about one year ago from Switzerland, and I had some contacts with the band in Europe, including an interview with Richard Barbieri. I was working for different radio stations.

 

Some of you might have seen me last year in kibbutz, when we met with SW and listened to the Blackfield EP.

 

With Motti gone, for the moment, in the US of A, Eduardo and me will help him to manage our group in Israel, and find new ideas.

 

The first thing I made this week is this new official website, which I hope you'll like.

 

This website is brand new, so PLEASE SEND FEEDBACK!!

It will be very helpful for us.

and don't be shy to use the forum!!!!

It will be a great way to get to know each others, discuss news, and keep you informed. And don't forget to add it to your favourites for easy consultation.

I'm eager to see you all at our next meeting!

shalom

Alex
