tycho remix for parralox
Fellow Aussie synth act Parralox is causing quite a stir – I've been privileged to have been an inside observer to this creation from its inception only a few months ago. The opening song from Electricity, Parralox's debut album, is called Europa and a Tycho Brahe remix of this song has now been completed for release at a later date.
Visit Parralox on MySpace here: http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=330761846
I will be attending their album launch in London in November, so if anyone on this list is going to be there be sure to say "Hi!" to me :-)
francis leaving tycho
Last but certainly not least, Ken has confirmed what many already suspected - Francis Tohill has officially left the band, after four years behind the drums for Tycho. His final show with Tycho was the Assemblage 23 show in January.
Francis will still turn up around the traps as part of the covers band Karma Nova, giving us all a chance to yell "Hoots!" at him and request Dreams of Dying.
Stephen Birt will continue to perform with Tycho on a show by show basis, combining his energetic style with Tycho's fantabulous red Simmons drum kit. Stephen was a full time Tycho member from March 1998 to September 2003.
