Copies of the Tribute CD are now on backorder, as I have run into more problems with my
CD-ROM recorder. No new CD orders will be taken for at least 3-4 weeks (when I receive the
replacement drive). Sorry for the inconvenience...
Overhauled the Audio page. Converted the last of the .WAV and .AU sound files to Real Audio
and also added a Fan Club Remix of "Oblivious" to the Rare Releases section.
Made some slight modifications to the Frequently Asked Questions page. Thanks, Stephen,
for your help!
Added the tabs for "Pillar to Post".
Added the final two audio clips from the 1991 Radio 1 interview.
Added three more audio clips from the 1991 Radio 1 interview.
Added three audio clips from a Radio 1 interview from 1991.
Added the guitar tabs for "Sunset".
The final word about the "Haywire" fan tribute project... it's done! The first batch of
CDs is now shipping, so get 'em while they're hot. The actual booklet cover is now on display
in the Tribute Tracks section.
Totally re-designed the Fan Tribute Tracks page to reflect the way in which the songs appear
on the CD. Speaking of the CD... the onslaught of computer glitches which have held up the
project for so long have now been side-stepped and a healthy batch of CDs has been produced.
See the Tribute Tracks section for more details about ordering your copy.
Added My Happy Life's version of "Knife" to the Fan Tribute Tracks section.
Added the tabs for Deep & Wide & Tall.
Added the Aztec Camera Chat Room, which will allow up to 25 people to "talk"
Added 'Good Morning Britain' to the Video Clips section.
Added two versions of 'Paradise' for the AC Tribute compilation. And [gulp] I'm actually

Added three songs (Mattress of Wire, Walk Out to Winter and We Could Send Letters) by the

Updated the News section to include the lastest word about Roddy's upcoming album. Also

section. They are no longer in stock.
Added three more of Andrew Thomas' tracks to the Fan Tribute section: 'Sister Ann' and two
versions of 'Working in a Goldmine'.
Added another song - 'Over My Head' by Andrew Thomas - to the Fan Tribute Tracks section.
Added the Fan Tribute Tracks sub-section of the Audio Page. There you'll find Real Audio
format files of songs that will be appearing on our upcoming Aztec Camera tribute tape/CD.
If you'd like to be a part of it, be sure to e-mail me from the Tribute Tracks page.
Added a bit of 'Dream Sweet Dreams' to the Video Clips section.
Added a very early article from 1982, just after Aztec Camera had signed with Rough Trade.
Added five new pictures to the Images section - three early ones from the Postcard days and
two from around the time Knife was released.
Added three songs to the Video Clips section: Do I Love You?, Oblivious and Spanish Horses.
Added Aztec Camera's very first interview from 1981 to the Articles section.
Real Video format files are now available in the Video Clips section. If you need a version
of the Real Audio/Video player that supports these files, please visit the Progressive Networks
Added the Video Clips section to the Home Page, featuring scenes from "Walk Out to Winter",
"Still on Fire" and "Deep & Wide & Tall". For now, these files are just available in .AVI
format, but Real Video versions will hopefully be online in the next few days. More video
clips to come in the near future!
Finished up the all-purpose Aztec Camera Frequently Asked Questions.
Some additional things (notices, clarification and advice) have been appended to the Mailing
List Info Page. Some things have come up this week that have required a few minor adjustments
to the list and I wanted to make sure potential (as well as current) list members are aware of
Well, we're back online after being "disconnected" for four days. While it doesn't technically
count as an update here, it does make me appreciate having a working web site once again.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Added the Japanese compilation 'Dreams Sweet Dreams' and an additional listing for
"Somewhere in My Heart" to the Discography section.
The remaining pages of the site (the Tabs and Articles sections) have been converted over to
the new design.
Added five new files to the Audio section - two of Roddy and Edwyn talking with the audience
during a show, an acoustic version of "Oblivious" from 1993, an acoustic version of
"Salvation" from 1990 and a short interview segment about being on tour.
Finished converting the rest of the album pages and the mailing list page over to the new
design. All that should be left is the bulk of the tabs pages. I hope to have those taken
care of in the next 48 hours.
Did some touch-up work on what was converted yesterday and did some more converting. All
that's left are the individual article and tab pages... and a couple other odds and ends.
Remind me to never mess with the Guestbook again!
Started converting the site over to the new black background design. If you have any comments
about the new look, please feel free to drop me a line.
Added thirteen new audio files of an interview with Roddy from 1987. Also added an update on
Roddy's new album to the News section of the Info page.
Added scanned images of many of sleeves from singles listed on the Discography page. Also
included in that is a scan of the four (Roddy Frame Live Collection) CD spines that make up
the profile of Roddy.
After thinking about it for several weeks, I've finally re-built the Discography page,
fixing up all the typos and adding whatever was left out before. Also added at the top of
this page is a link Roger Boge's AC Videography. It's definitely worth a look... you won't
find a more detailed account of where Roddy's been seen on television.
Added audio from two television performances - Pianos and Clocks from 1993 and On the Avenue from
1995. Also realized that many of the Real Audio files were mis-named, which was resulting
in "File Not Found" errors. The file names have been fixed and everything's back in working
order. Sorry 'bout that!
Added a 1993 acoustic version of Black Lucia to the Audio page. Be sure to cast your Reader's
Choice vote for dotmusic's first-ever U.K. music web site awards before April 11th.
Who would you rather see honored... Aztec Camera or The Spice Girls?
Added three articles - a 1984 review of the Pillar to Post tour, a 1992 review of the Spanish
Horses and a 1993 interview from The Observer. Also added tabs for The Boy Wonders.
Added lots of new photos - one from 1984, one from 1988 and three from 1993. Plus eleven new
additions to the Fan Photos section and (Roddy's?) hand-written tabs for "Backwards and
Forwards". Big thanks to Adele for the Killermont Street photos (better late than never,
eh?) and Rebecca for her contributions!
Added two more bits of Roddy's interview from the tv show "Out There." Also added a live
version of "Safe In Sorrow" from 'Later... With Jules Holland' from 1993.
Added tabs for Paradise, Consolation Prize and Pianos and Clocks.
Added tabs for Just Like Gold.
Happy Birthday, Roddy!
Made many modifications to the Images section, created a Fan Photos sub-section (thanks to
Rebecca's enormous contribution of 20 of her own photos) and added an advertisement for the
Edinburgh Festival, featuring a show with Roddy and Edwyn Collins.
Added tabs for All I Need is Everything, The Back Door to Heaven, Get Outta London and One
Added tabs for Song for a Friend and The Crying Scene.
Added an Aztec Camera News section to the Information page today, which presently clues us
in as to what Roddy will be doing with his time for the next few months.
Added a bunch of cross-links from Roddy's bio section of the Information page back to the
Audio and Articles pages. Over the weekend, my ISP messed things up with the web server and
the Real Audio files were not downloadable again until this afternoon. If you've tried to
listen to any of them unsuccessfully in the past few days, this is why. All is fixed now.
I'm still waiting to hear back from AC HQ regarding a list of questions I asked them about
the new label and album. When I get some news, I'll surely post it here.
I must apologize for the lack of activity around here. But, as I'm sure you can guess, not
much is going on in Aztec Camera-land. Roddy's got a new album due out sometime this Spring
and we'll just have to sit tight until then, I guess. In the meantime, I've made some
additions to the Links section. Just added was a link to My Happy Life's new web site. I'm
sure you've never heard of them, but let's just say I know the band real well. Please take a
