A rather eclectic mix of news in the newsletter today...
// Gareth Jones - New Album Diary
Gareth Jones (producer of the new Erasure album) has started a fascinating online diary of what Andy, Vince and himself are getting up to in the US with the new Erasure album. Keep an eye on it for the latest info:
// "On The Road To Nashville" DVD
The EIS was fortunate enough to view an early version of Erasure's forthcoming "On The Road To Nashville" Live DVD the other day, and the combination of the Ryman Auditorium acoustics and the DVD production team has produced a DVD that sounds *wonderful* - it was a joy to listen to.
When the DVD reaches a more advanced stage of production, the EIS will be in a position to produce some preview clips for your enjoyment and announce the release date etc. (which isn't confirmed at present, so please no more emails about it please!)
// EIS Fan Mixes Updated
The fan mixes section has been updated with mixes (listed in bold) from Carlos Chimeo, Pete Cripps, Pablo Duran and Mark Towns).
