the gossip...
01/09/05 > well, its been a while...too long...way too long.  probs with pc's and web updates, laziness and all the usual sh1te.  the good news - we're still together and still writing.  although admittedly not as much as we should, things are as busy as ever.  caroline is still living down in manchester, j is still actively adding to the population crisis and stuart has almost given up everything and became a student - 'again'.  caroline has been doing some top work with 'cathode' and 'andrew hodson' and keep your eyes peeled for a release or two.  we're treating you to a new fwl mp3 too - 'the bomb'. its quite an old song...but a good 'un which can be listened to via the mp3 button.  enough treats for now...thanks for listening...

26/10/04 > hot off the press...the compilation 'the beach will decide' has been realeased on innocent freefall records. our track 'at a time like this' appears on it. check out there website where they have details on how you can pick up a copy - its only 3 quid too, we don't know how they do it for the money!

22/10/04 > new mp3's - hurrah! we finally got round to posting up some new tracks for you. beanie is an older track and a bit of a favourite of our's, whilst the 'work in progress' tracks nsab and (01) if you're outside london will bring you bang upto date with what fwl are working on. we're hoping to gig soon too....oh how we miss gigging........

17/11/02 > hi! much apologies to all the people that were hoping to see us at the playrooms last night. the show had to be cancelled last minute after the club announced it would not be able to open for safety reasons. we're all a bit gutted about it. we were really looking forward to playing you some new choons we had been working on. anyhoo, that was the last chance for us to put on a show this year. we're gonna organise something early in the new year, so keep coming back for news on that. ta ta 4 now...
