THE NEW CHRISTS was formed by ex-Radio Birdman singer Rob Younger in 1984. Pretty much anyway. Since then, myriad line-up changes, conflicts within and without, numerous record releases, a plethora of wasted opportunities and six European tours have transpired. History, being largely detestable, certainly tiresome, forbids further detail. The future has always been of greater interest, which is hardly strange. *** In June, the five highly talented, keenly motivated individuals I'm honoured to call my friends, returned from Europe, having played shows in Spain (Azkena Rock Festival), France, Germany, Holland, Slovenia, Italy, Norway and Sweden. The boys had quite a few laughs over there, so many in fact that plans are underway for a repeat dose next year.*** Concurrent to all this furious activity, Australian label Impedance will release GLORIA, the band's latest waxing, on CD and vinyl. The 12" - being noticeably larger - looks a right treat and only an absolute fool or someone without a record player or perhaps both would pass on this one. And the music cradled lovingly within this gorgeous presentation? More of the same really, but therein lies their genius, their strength.***Stop press!! The visionary people at Pitshark Records in France have seen fit to release two tracks from GLORIA - Bonsoir A Vous b/w Animalisation - on 45. Copies should be available from somewhere, somehow. What've I got to do, draw you a map?*** Napoleon Wilson / Public Relations Officer / Stylist (stolen from NEW CHRISTS myspace website...)

Just have to say the 7" turned up to a 10" and is now released and ready to ship... (PITSHARK)
