We have had a few issues with our Shop over the last 3-4 months. We’re working hard to fix these problems which have been exacerbated by Covid hitting our Shop people as well as postal services across the World. To these problems we now unfortunately have to negotiate the totally stupid, nonsensical and super-complicated Brexit issues. From today, customers outside the UK will only be able to choose a tracked shipping service which, while a bit more expensive, should at least mean that we can locate missing items.
We will have news of new releases soon and, like everyone else, we are counting the days until live gigs are happening again...
Stay well everybody…
On another note - here are links to a couple of interesting albums of NMA songs in Swedish recorded by Oskar Wigren. These are free for everybody to download and listen to. Enjoy!
Over the last few weeks, unbeknownst to us, a number of our fans have been raising money to help the band and our crew, through these troubled times of no live work (and to celebrate 40 years of our music). Today, completely unexpectedly, a very large amount of money has been passed on to us and we can only say a very big thank you, and salute the extraordinary generosity of everyone who gave. We will do our best to use this money in as appropriate way as possible, in particular to help our crew people past and present.
If anyone wants to make a further donation, there are a number of support groups for struggling road-crew and small venues in danger of collapse and we would point people in these directions.
We have been amazed at the response to our global live-stream concert on Saturday. We hoped that in making something genuinely live, visually unrehearsed and obviously a bit rough around the edges, we would get across some of the energy and spirit of a real gig. It was genuinely exciting and nerve-racking to make and this seems to have connected with everyone in these unreal and bleak times. There were 6200 live links and so we estimate a worldwide viewing audience of anything from 10-25,000.
The background to the whole event was also captured by WDR for a documentary film to be screened in December.
The stream has now moved to https://www.themill.tv/ where it will be available to watch in a pay-to-view format for a while.
The 40th Anniversary Global Stream is available to watch in a pay-to-view format at https://www.themill.tv/ for the next few weeks.
However, for those people who bought a ticket, there is a one-off opportunity to watch it again for free - for a limited 24-hour period beginning at midnight (UK time) tonight. You will be sent a link this evening.
For everyone still waiting for 40th Anniversary Global Gathering shirts, we ask for your patience. Our printers are still trying to keep up with demand - while our Shop service has been limited by illness and quarantine.
And thank you to everyone for their amazing response to Saturday.
