New single alert!
The rough plan of next years releases looks a bit like this:

18th Feb: Abstract Sky single
7th May: Bluebell Morning single
27th May: Hey Petrunko album

The list is undoubtedly subject to change, as we have learnt of the past few months or so. It's looking good though! Album out a few days before my birthday :)

Ooberman International!
It has been announced that deals are currently being set up for the distribution and licensing of Ooberman material in France, Denmark, Japan and the USA. There is also the possibility that Ooberman could play some live dates in the US in February 2002.

Nouveau website d'Ooberman is set to have a sister-site in the form of an Official French Ooberman website which is now being designed.

OoberDrummer explodes
Well, not really... but Paul Walsham has been sacked by the band because "he wasn't putting enough time in". He has been replaced by Jamie Ireland, who has worked with the likes of Space and The Lightning Seeds before becoming an Oob. {thanks Jim}

We'll Know When We Get There single dropped
We'll Know When We Get There is no longer being issued as a single in January 2002, instead they are releasing a brand new track as a single - probably Bluebell Morning.

XFM session a sucess
Ooberman's session on XFm was aired last night. The three tracks played were - as previously stated - Dreams In the Air, The Things I Have Lost and Bluebell Morning. They played Dreams In the Air before 9:30pm which was the time stated the tracks would be played so unfortunately I missed it. I will try and get mp3's up, so if anyone can help e-mail me.
