and so we say to 2006 what we said to his father and to his father’s father. thank you for carrying us to this appointed place. you have held us and you have led us where we may go and now you must leave. we bid you farewell and look forward to reading and hearing about you in people magazine and on VH1.

2006 was good to canon blue. it began with only an idea and now it has ended with an idea completed and new ones coming to fruition. colonies is gradually being leaked into the world, escaping from a hole in the wall of my bedroom. the workshop is alive again as the canon blue players begin to assess how to take the sounds out of your headphones and into your hearts. and work has begun on special new recordings of which more shall be revealed in the coming months. thank you to everyone who has stopped by to listen and innocently allowed me to gather a huge database together of addresses and personal information to be used at my discretion.

in other, less pretentiously written news, a potential video is in the works for the next hit single to be released from colonies. right now thats looking to be either pilguin pop or rum diary, but we’ll have to wait and see which one tests better down at the clear channel lab.

to those of you who have requested a copy of colonies, rest assured that your letters have not been lost and that if all goes to plan you shall find a specially addressed package to you before the 25th of december.

as always the running catalogue of the canon blue playlist is housed in the blog entitled ‘ear candy’. expect the canon blue end of the year “top 10 albums and video list” in the next week or so. canon blue is a taste maker and to that i say open thy mouth and receive the goodness from the spoon.

humbly yours,

dan

ps. the record is still available for free…..
