Pooh_bear: some thing like Considerate Understanding
Nineties Type you once described bert newton as!!
lhucekb: i imagine Syd to have a personality and a
half…she a cool kid?
soozie: WASN’T THAT THAT COUNTDOWN BLOKE
Deborah: maybe it was
Bryan: Deb: A question about the album. I felt ‘String of
Pearls’ and ‘Bitch Epic’ both had a definite theme to them, but not
so much 3rd Husband. Any comment on this?
soozie: Why did you write such different stuff in London
Deborah: times were hard
Deborah: what did you think the themes
were on the first two ?
Deborah: my 3rd husband’s themes are sex,
death, memory, and sex
Bryan: Well ‘String’ semes to have a lot about
relationships – and how they can go wrong. I think Bitch’s theme
speaks for itself.
Deborah: we had to live without Daryl,
Deborah: sometimes these things are more
evident after the fact
Veronica: Deborah, do you think you will ever release in
Deborah: god knows I’d love to
Veronica: it’s damn hard to get your cds over here
Deborah: we wait to see if someone is
brave enough to put it out
lhucekb: you gonna release a live cd like you did with
“Epic Theatre”? if so will it be available seperately as well?
Deborah: what about over the net
Veronica: expensive, but the only real option
Deborah: you mean contractual obligation
ronny: shipping from australia is expensive on top of over
priced australian cd prices.
Deborah: veronica, you need a pen
lhucekb: you have a definite market in the states, i have
mailed some to friends there and they loved it
Deborah: yankees, why are you awake ?
Veronica: What can I say, I’m a fan. 1:30am on a work night
