I've actually been wanting to document that kind of thing myself

Eventually I'm hoping to head in that direction, but we'll see how it goes. My main priority at the minute is discography, live & transmissions, then a page about band members & other collaborators and a 'FSOL Dictionary' which will try and explain their phrases, release series, branding, terminology etc.
After that I'd love to be able to actually put together a page for each track and tie them in to related tracks etc., but that'll be some way down the line.

The only sample info I'm going to be putting on the page is stuff that's credited in the album art, as I don't want to be stepping on any toes.

I honestly have no idea how rss stuff works but I might look into it when I get a moment! My mind still mostly works in web 1.0 terms so even running a wiki is pretty advanced for me :lol:

Ha, the Expander single was pointless. I have those remixes on my copy of Accelerator and they really aren't very good.

I actually prefer the remix of Expander to the original but yeah, it was a proper cash-in by J&P. I suppose for vinyl listeners it's an opportunity to get those two previously CD-only remixes.

How have I never noticed these credits before:

Keith Webb - 'magic ashtray and the Brighton helpline'
Martyn Barter - 'shuffling papers and guidance from afar on 'glorified psion'
Rob Manley - 'construction and concept of felix

I wonder quite what their roles actually were ?!

Keith and Martyn are Freedom Management (before Graham joined, I believe). Keith works from Brighton.
Rob was their A&R guy - basically their representative at Virgin.
