Will it be 10 different books, or all collected in one tome ? (hoping the latter!)

As they're being described as zines, I'd imagine they won't be that big so they'll be separate. Maybe a binder to put them all in, but that's just speculation.

Has this any reference to the flash "book"? I remember it had the same title, 3 chapters (chapter 4 never worked), and was quite funny/informative. Think i still have it somewhere buried in my digital archive...

Not as far as I know, simply a reuse of the title from ISDN.

Do we have any idea if it is old material, or new commentary about what they're doing now? In that picture it has the date 6/9/94.

Unless I guess there's ramblings (a la the flash book) from Gary between the photos recounting tales during that era, or any notes if he kept a diary at the time like the bits in the Dead Cities deluxe version.

I'd imagine they'll be more like the Dead Cities book than the flash book.

Can you tell us: will this be for sale in the fsol online shop? Or was it for sale and I missed it? The question seems silly, but I've missed things in the past...
Thanx. -M-13...

Been hitting the keys of the typewriter hard these last weeks ......
' Ramblings Of A Madman ' ....... the first 3 novellas is the result .

Excerpt from chapter :
Frippertronic Sound of London and the Big Radio

FRIPP was IN ! FRIPP was OUT ! Back in ! BACK OUT ! Whichever way he was, he was hardly shaking it all about ! In fact , he was more like hopping up and down , hopping mad to be precise ! Not with us , you understand but with EG records .
We never knew the particulars , didn't need to , just knew that his head wasn't right , the rivers ran deep , court proceedings were afoot . His gripes were numerous -THAT we DID know and that he did seek resolution in her majesties jurisdictional courts . The fact it coincided with him playing in our planned live ISDN transmission with live 'frippertronix' to Radio One on the Pete Wrong show to a waiting audience of several million people the Saturday before the release of our Future Sound Of London album LIFEFORMS the following Monday , ( the day coincidentally of PINN's birthday ) was probably more prevalent in our mind however , young , narcissistic , careerist , self obsessives that we were .........
Reminds me of the old EBV website.
