For details of the current lineup see the picture in the Sidebar With an active link to the bands web site for some complete tracks.
As the band is currently still active, though slightly reduced in size, and no longer receiving any royalties from the PRS for the music on this album, I am seeking permission to post some if not all of the album tracks here.
*** Update DECEMBER 2009 ***
Despite trying to get a definitive answer from KPM (record lable) but with total agreement from the band, I am no further forward in being able to post this album on here, however since the previous album is freely available and FIVE tracks from it are available in complete form from the bands website, I am sharing these 5 tracks in 320k format. HERE or time/download limited HERE
