Great to hear from them again their classics and to know that 2006 will see their new songs ( 20 of them already ready ) go into a new album. They quite wonder the interest around their music after so long but it’s going like that. They are rehearsing and going to produce the new songs. I got a preview on to two of them and they are really great. Stay tuned!!!
