The Site
I've been giving the site a bit of a spring clean over the last few weeks to prepare it for the year ahead. Unfortunately, it's taking a little longer than expected - you just don't realise how dirty these web sites can get if you leave things... but anyway, I hope to have the tidy up finished within the next couple of weeks. Once that's all done, I can finally remove the bandages from The FAQ section, which has been undergoing a facelift for over a year now! Oops! Thanks to Ali for the kick up the whatsit on that one.

Until then, sit tight, and look forward to the forthcoming Supergrass DVD and (hopefully this year too) album.
