"A Houseguest's Wish: Translations of Wire's Outdoor Miner" will be released by Words On Music on November 9, 2004. The album is available for pre-order now exclusively through Words On Music with an estimated ship date of October 5, 2004. Titania are one of two Canadian bands contributing to the project. Check out the Words On Music site for an MP3 sample of Titania's "Outdoor Miner" cover then pre-order the CD today!

"A Houseguest's Wish" is Words On Music's 25th anniversary tribute to the seminal Wire song "Outdoor Miner." Released in 1979 as a 7" single (and appearing in a more skeletal version on their "Chairs Missing" LP), fans and critics have long regarded "Outdoor Miner" as one of Wire's finest moments - and one of their rare early excursions into unbridled, sugar coated pop.

Words On Music has assembled interpretations by 19 artists from five countries (Germany, Spain, United Kingdom, Canada, USA) into one stunning and diverse collection translating the song into versions ranging from folk to punk. Some of the bands featured include Adam Franklin (ex-Swervedriver), Fiel Garvie, Lush, The Meeting Places and Junetile - among many others.

Michael and Mandy have pretty much wrapped up work on the first album under their new band name Titania. Also in the plannning stages is Resplendent, a new label created by the band which will provide a home for Titania's future releases. As soon as we hear of a release date it will be posted here... An instrumental album is currently being recorded by Michael. He is thinking of releasing it around the same time as the new Titania album. More details forthcoming...

Michael also re-mastered and re-sequenced the songs from their debut 1992 cassette-only album "Boon" including a superb remix of "Swoon". re-titled "September Wild With Flame", this may get a well deserved CD release at some point soon.
