In unrelated Collide news, here is a great song by Monty Python's Eric Idle..."The FCC Song" "Here's a little song I wrote the other day while I was out duck hunting with a judge. It's a new song, it's dedicated to the FCC, and if they broadcast it, it will cost a quarter of a million dollars."
Look for a review of Vortex in the June/July issue of Jane Magazine. Here is the review...
" Collide's latest venture into gothic darkwave, Vortex, is a two-disk collection of decadent aesthetic brilliance. Vortex has tracks to please every dark-minded eccentric out there. With trippy vocals from the stunning kaRIN and twisty musical mixes from mysterious hottie Statik, this band always brightens my nightmares. Boo "

t's off to a great start. We are featured in this months current issue of Sideline Magazine. (thanks Seba)
Vortex debuted at #1 this week on www.TheHMD.com
And here are a few words from Gordon Taylor of Infectious Unease Radio... "First all I would like to say this is one the best remix albums I have ever come across. It's just brillant and I love every track on both cds. Very impressive, I will be playing it throught the weeks and months to come. Once again a very big thank you for giving me the pleasure to play Vortex. Kind regards and best wishes"

We are ending the special in one more week, on April 27th. So get your orders in. All orders with the Vortex CD and/or Vortex T-shirt design will be shipping May 4th.
