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.
