Added the full-length video for Sun. Thanks very much to Chizuho
Hara for responding to my request so quickly!
Added video of Reason for Living (in its entirety!). Also added a
fantastic (and very long) new article that details Roddy's career.
Thanks go out to Graham Mitchell and Roger Boge for making all
As a related sidenote/plea... I'm still in search of the one missing
link for the AC/RF video collection. If anyone has either the full or
partial "Sun" video on tape, please contact me and we'll arrange
some sort of trade.
Added a short review of Roddy's gig at The Barbican in London,
as well as a brief update about the status of killermontstreet.com
to the Latest News section.
Added details of Roddy's one-off November gig in London to the
Latest News section.

shipping! Feel free to try before you buy. Preview the tracks
while you fill out a quick and easy order form. At $10 each,
they're a bargain! And they make great gifts, too. :)
Sorry for the lack of updates over the past month and a half. I've
spent the time away by traveling to Europe, proposing to my new
fiance, planning a wedding, producing the tribute CD and working
on a new design for KillermontStreet.com. Aside from that, I
haven't been doing much. :)
Lots of great things are on the horizon for the new web site.
Many new features, lots more interactive things to do, an online
store, a snazzy new look and, well, you'll just have to wait and
see. If you have any suggestions for things you'd like to see at
KillermontStreet.com, just drop me a line.
Added an audio preview page and a pre-order form for the new
Aztec Camera/Roddy Frame tribute CD, "Sentimentally Yours...
Added an article from yesterday's Independent about the Best Of
CD. Thanks again to Graham Mitchell for sending it over.
Added another nicely-written article about the upcoming Best Of
CD. Thanks go out to Graham Mitchell for transcribing and sending
the article over to me.
Added an article written a week after the release of The North
Star, though it talks mainly of Roddy's maturity as an artist rather
than the specifics of the new album. Thanks go out to Rob
Rimmer for sending the article over to me.
Added a new article about the Best Of CD and updated the latest
news section. Thanks go out to Graham Mitchell for providing the
Added a bit of news about the development of the new
Added two notes of interest to the Latest News section.
Created a new North Star section to the images page and ,
added three recent pictures there.
Added Real Audio of "Hungry Ghost Eyes", the planned b-side of
the "Sister Shadow" CD2-single. Thanks, Frank!
Updated the RF/AC Fan Tribute section to report on the current
status of the soon-to-be-released CD.
Gave The Latest News section its own page and have updated the
info there. BTW, please excuse the inconsistent look on the site...
I'm gradually updating the format as I go along, but it probably is a
lost cause until the switch-over to killermontstreet.com goes into
effect, where there'll be a complete re-design. ETA on that is
unknown, but will probably take place by the end of the summer.
Thanks go out to Stuart Matthews for the design of the new
Roddy-related banner ads that are randomly, er, strategically
placed on various pages throughout the site. Clicking on these
banners will take you directly to either the Roddy Frame or Aztec
Camera sections at cdnow.com. I buy tons of stuff from them...
it's safe, convenient, etc... and would recommend you try them
out if you haven't already.
Added a December 1998 article from Guitar Magazine.
It's only taken two weeks (ahem! sorry...), but finally the
trancripts from the live chat session with Roddy on May 1st have
been added... all twelve pages and 295k! They have been edited
a bit, but only in the sense that I've corrected as many obvious
typos as I could find and I've taken out several hundred smiley
faces. :) Hopefully soon we'll get to hook up with Roddy again,
but in the meantime please stop in the chat room anytime.
Weekend fan gatherings are becoming a common thing there,
which is a good thing, I think!
Added two rare bits of audio: a live recording of The Spirit Shows,
a never-released song from Roddy's 'Green Jacket Grey' demo
sessions, and The Thoughtless Kind, a John Cale cover and one of
the "Sister Shadow" b-sides.
In celebration of 'Chat with Roddy Day' (it sounded good
anyway), I've added two newer articles - a tour review from
November 1998 in Portsmouth (thanks to Rob Wrightman for
writing and contributing it) and one from The Independent from
October of 1998. I've had one report of the new Java news
tickers crashing Netscape. If anyone else is experiencing this,
please let me know and I'll remove it from the site.
Added two new audio files... a live version of "Birth of the True",
recorded in London at Dingwalls in August of 1998 and a live
cover version of Ian McCulloch's "Start Again", recorded in Madrid
in September of 1990. Also added the Java news ticker to the
front page and another one on the Chat page.
Added re-encoded audio of "Mattress of Wire" and new audio of
its Postcard b-side, "Lost Outside the Tunnel", to the Rare
Releases section of the Audio page.
Added re-encoded audio of "Just Like Gold" (much better sound
quality) and its Postcard b-side, "We Could Send Letters", to the
Rare Releases section of the Audio page. The Postcard versions
of "Mattress of Wire" (also re-encoded) and "Lost Outside the
Tunnel" will be added in the next 24 hours or so.
Added an acoustic version of "Bigger, Brighter, Better" to the
No new content today, but just a mention that all of the Real
Audio files have been moved to a new location -
killermontstreet.com - where the entire Home Page will be
relocated hopefully sometime this summer.
Finally finished up The North Star section with the addition of
"Autumn Flower" and "Sister Shadow". Added The North Star to
the Discography section... finally. Added Real Audio of Roddy with
The Waterboys playing Prince's "Purple Rain". Thanks to Sandy
Manson for providing the tape on that gem! Fixed up the Revision
Added "River of Brightness" and "Strings" to The North Star page.
Added "Back to the One", "The North Star" and "Here Comes the
Ocean" to The North Star page this morning.
Added "Hymn to Grace" and "Reason For Living" to The North Star
page. One of these days I'll get the rest of these lyrics
Added a North Star tour review from the November 25, 1998
issue of The Scotsman. Thanks to Graham Mitchell for snail
mailing the article to me. Also added an updated bit of information
to the News section.
Additions to The North Star page have temporarily been put on
the back burner so that we could bring you a Home Page
exclusive... the Roddy Frame Q&A Session! These are 50 actual
questions submitted by countless actual fans from the mailing list
and the Guestbook. Thanks everyone for your contributions and
special thanks to Roddy for taking the time to answer them all.
Made some minor adjustments to the Guestbook script and split
the 1997-98 entries into their own section. Also finally got around
to adding The North Star album page. Hey, and just in the nick of
time, too! My apologies for the delay in getting that posted. Look
for its completion with song lyrics by the end of this week.
Added direct links to cdnow.com on the front page where many
of Roddy's albums, including The North Star, can be purchased
online. Made some corrections to the Frequently Asked Questions
- changes include the meaning behind Frestonia and 'Jack-jones'
from "Just Like the USA. Added an audio clip of Roddy himself
defining "silent LD" during an August '98 gig. Finally... added five
Real Audio clips from Roddy's in-the-round performance with Neil
Finn of Crowded House and Graham Gouldman of 10cc. Many
thanks to Graham Mitchell for audio of this show!
Added an audio clip of Roddy talking to Neil Finn from their show
together on Later With Jules Holland from 1998. There'll be more
audio to come from this show in the next few days.
Some minor changes were made to items #5 and #18 of the FAQ.
Also added an announcement about a second AC/RF tribute CD in
Something new and something old today. Added an old NME
clipping from 1990 and a short Q&A piece from this month's Mojo
Magazine to the Articles section. Many thanks to Bronwyn Jones
for transcribing all that text and Graham Mitchell for scanning and
e-mailing the new article, as well as his continued support of this
Happy Birthday, Roddy!
