WOW!! Sorry it's been so long since we wrote, but we've had a lot of trouble with our PC lately, plus with my new job as a telesales operative (I'm doing quite well actually!!!) it's been difficult to find the time to do anything for the website! PLUS Gary has been so busy and we've been attending so many gigs and events he's been at, it's been IMPOSSIBLE to have any time to ourselves!!
Gary's been SO busy. Not only has he been gallavanting off all over the country spreading his Neo-Regency Face Warrior message, he's ALSO been doing TV appearances, radio appearances, working on the new album and doing yet more full-length shows in London!!
THE BEST show and the most exciting to be at was the Palace Theatre on London's famous Shaftesbury Avenue. It's a big old lovely theatre with red seats and all that, and to see Gary strutting about peacock-like on such a big stage in front of over a thousand adoring fans was like Heaven come true!! At one point in the show, he even MENTIONED OUR NAMES, thanking us for the work we've done on this site!! We were too dumbstruck to reply. We tried to hang around and talk to him afterwards but we got caught in the crowd after the show and somehow found ourselves swept out of the door, unable to get back in!! One day we will meet Gary and have our photos taken with him, you can bet your bottom dollar!!!
THE BEST TV appearance Gary did was on a show called Loose Lips for Living TV, where he was interviewed by Melinda Messenger and Richard Arnold. Tony Hadley from Spandau Ballet and Peter Cox from Go West were on it too, as was Bruno from Fame. Of course, the interviewers accused him of being an 80s revivalist, just like we Gary fans all know he's not, but being a gentleman, Gary took it all in very good humour. He looked like a GOD on telly, really tall and good-looking. Hopefully after that show he will have created hundreds or even MILLIONS more Gary fans, and we can join as one together to make the world a more interesting place on his behalf!! It was a really really good show and we thank the producers for giving airtime to a true artist instead of all the usual soulless plastic pop stars!!
THE BEST radio appearance was yesterday, on a new show called The Day the Music Died on Radio 2, which takes an in-depth look behind the music industry. Gary was championed as a new artist with something relevant to say. It has to be said that the show's host was not altogether flattering about Gary--in fact he was quite rude, saying that Gary had "nicked" his ideas from the New Romantics, and accusing Gary of being gay (He is not--he is "theoretically omnisexual"). But best of all, we got to hear a NEW SONG form Gary!! It was part of a demo he had written, an early version of the Love song he has begun singing at recent gigs, but this one with hard-hitting lyrics about why people don't buy singles any more! In the track, he lays down the gauntlet to the music industry, saying that the only reason people don't buy singles as much as they used to is because they're rubbish, and that if they gave Gary a record deal he would sell a lot more of them. Exciting stuff!!
Our sources tell us Gary may be back on the show more than once throughout the series. So all true Gary fans MUST tune in on Saturdays to BBC Radio 2, at 1pm just after Jonathan Ross, to hear more exclusive Gary demos!
There are still quite a few Gary gigs in London in the run-up to Christmas, but Gary's main project at the moment is to continue recording material for his next album. We've already heard the 2 new songs "Warriors of Style" and "What Love Is" at recent gigs, so we can't wait to hear what the rest are like!!
ALSO, a little bird on the grapevine tells us that Gary may be doing a UK tour next year, taking his Polaroid Suitcase show around Britain, on a one-man mission to release the individual in every man, woman and child!! More details on that soon!!
By the way, Michelle's pelvis operation went fine and she is much better now.
Love and faces
