to everybody who has helped in keeping this page alive over the
This web site, all in all, has been my most interesting and successful
web site yet. With the competitions (including give-aways of hundreds
of CD's from sponsors), the mentions on triple j national radio,
the message board which has seen nearly 10,000 messages posted over
the years, the fan list with over 500 fans email & ICQ, the
hundreds of reviews & articles, the hundreds & hundreds
of surveys received, and the 1500 people on the mailing list, it
really has been incredible!
Feel free to support me further by seeing what else I'm up to on
