But as related info, there is a massive news with the SKIDS, tour and a new album!


Uploaded a new Live Show to the TASS-Player:
- Live at The Astoria Theatre London, 1987-03-12... this copy is so far the best sounding, from that show. I dont know if all came from the very same source, i think I have at least four different sounding versions... this on have not "Fire" included as last song...

Updated the "...bootleg-page" wit an new? old! cassette, live from Astoria 1987. Thanks to Paul, and sorry for the dalay...

Hallo there :)
I'm sorry I have not updated the site for a long time, but as I guess you know the new story's is not to many these days.
And I see that you are hanging a bit on Pete's Facebook page, and thats really great... and I see that Russell Webb are doing music again, thats also really great...
I'm still wondering in what way I can refresh this site, have tried a lot of "blogg" styles but I dont like them, I would really like to have a site easier to update and maintain the little bit new info there is...
And I'd really woul like to present some or every bootleg show I have, but I still seraching for a some nice player or downloader to present on this site...
And I'd just noticed today, that I have had this site for 10 years,hmmm, I had to celebrate this some way...
To be continued...

Cheers everybody in the AS world :)
// Åke

Hallo there, its a long time since I was here, so sorry...
To my defence, there is not so much going around these days with Armoury Show...

A double disc cd, WFTF and b-sides, a grat booklet with inner notes from Russel Webb, Wayne Sadlier and Peter Trenholm... and some photos and Discography... I'm happy enough.
We'll see if Cherry Red Records will sell enough albums, maybe they will consider another realese in the future, cus there is other songs out there :) waiting to ba played...I Know.

I'm thinking about putting up some or all bootleg shows I've got... Is this a good or bad idee? At least I know some of you are interested in this kind of stuff. I just got to find a nice way to present the shows...

Cheers // Å

He has continued over the years to build his career as a worldwide musical force to be reckoned with, while also encouraging and producing music with others, writing highly successful books, presenting some of TV’s top shows, script and screenwriting and producing and directing award winning, and influential, films.
