A slice of packaging
FINALLY - after nine whole years! Gary Le Strange's second album, the ten-track electronic marvel Face Academy, is now available for purchase and download at CD Baby, Amazon, iTunes, Spotify, my own website and a zillion other online musical boutiques scattered throughout the known universe. The follow-up to the award-winning Polaroid Suitcase, heralded on its arrival in 2004 by The Scotsman's Andrew Eaton as "actually a good pop album" on which "Gary Le Strange has found his own voice" and "You can actually picture him as a real pop star," this album was previously only available by mail order and sold out many years ago. Now it's yours for the virtual taking, and digital wells never run dry.

To coincide with this auspicious and venerable occasion, my wonderful website has gone Face Academy crazy! Well, OK, I just added a full set of lyrics, pictures of the original CD packaging and wrote a few technical notes about it. But that only adds to what was already there - the original script for the live show, the page full of contemporary articles, the selection of press snippets and professional reviews, the original publicity material, a stunning set of photographs by the amazing Andy Hollingworth and an original video for the song Seedy Pimp directed by the inimitable Stewart Lee. If that's not enough for you then you are officially "Face Academy greedy" and you'll just have to come to my gig at the Forgery Club on London's South Bank on Friday May 17th, where Gary will be singing songs.

Baffled and bored by all this Le Strangeness? Why not check out another thing I've been working on - the unique and brilliant The Day They Came to Suck Out Our Brains, directed by Bob Pipe and starring Warwick Davis, Colin Hoult, Kerry Gilbert, Lizzie Roper, Gareth Tunley, James Wren, Louie Bayliss, Phil Whelans, Richard Glover, Mason Phillips, Richard Sandling, Neil Cole, Gemma Whelan, Alexis Dubus, Adam Riches and about fifteen trillion more amazingly talented people (not least of which include me and my glorious wife)? With special effects by Chris Lincé and music by some random bloke I've never heard of called Waen Shepherd, what's not to like?

Intrigued and excited by any of the Le Strangeness, but annoyed because you've already got all his albums and you'd rather hear something new? All I can say is, watch this space...
