Pagan Wanderer Lu, who you may be aware we quite like, has got in touch. For reasons that remain vague if decidedly excellent, he's putting together a compilation album, possibly for charity although it's up in the air at this early stage, of original songs about the giant isopod crustacean. All contributors are welcome - get in contact via its Myspace page before December 5th - and we hear there's more than one STN favourite interested.
If you're as musically talented as us, pass this message on. If you can't do that, be aware that PWL, Napoleon IIIrd and Applicants are touring together from tomorrow, taking in London, Manchester, Oxford, Brighton, Cardiff and Warrington (Modernaire rather than Applicants there). And if you come across a giant isopod, remember their staple diet.
