Deborah: of course it does.

Pooh_bear: soozie have u still got the bit of ham from kelly’s??

Deborah: as a title or a single ?

Bryan: As a single.

Deborah: ask michael gudinski his

Bryan: OK… but then why did you choose to redo it on 3rd

Deborah: cos no one bought Ultrasound

lhucekb: unreal!!! you gonna give him/her a cool name as

daryl somers

lhucekb: you hate d. somers??? could you be more perfect???

Deborah: no name suggestions please

soozie: I always thought you and he had a perfect

Deborah: actually we were thinking about
calling the child daryl

Deborah: but we settled on Ozzie

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?

Deborah: yes


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,
without Kennett

Deborah: sometimes these things are more
evident after the fact

Veronica: Deborah, do you think you will ever release in
the US?

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
record ?

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
is not too much πŸ™‚

Deborah: ooh, I am touched, have you ever
seen me play ?

Veronica: sadly, no.
