July 2004

The site has now finally been updated with lots of new information and features ­ thank you to everyone for their interest in B-Movie and for being patient whilst we have developed this website.

For all those that have been asking we can now confirm that negotiations are taking place to release 'Forever Running' on CD for the very first time. Itıs hopefully being re-released in its original format by the LA based label Superfecta Recordings www.superfecta.com.

The exact release date is as yet unconfirmed . Unfortunately due to their stringent regulations Warners (who own the rights) will not allow the re-release to contain any additional tracks or re-mixes. In a perfect world we would have liked to have seen the re-mixes of 'Switch On Switch Off' & 'Forever Running' by Bruce Forest & Ivan Ivan included on the re-issue plus of course the single & 12² versions of 'A Letter From Afar'. However this has not been possible !!??

Some other good news however is that as part of an on going project the Canadian label, Hush Music, are going to issue a re-mixes of Nowhere Girl. These will be completely new remixed versions ­ Steve has already re-recorded the vocals and Hush Music via various producers are providing a completely new set of variations of the track. Hopefully this will also be available soon but weıll keep you posted on the release date right here when we have anything confirmed.

Another interesting development is that American electro rock band 'The Faint' have a song called 'Southern Belles' on their forthcoming album'' which contains the vocal melody, chord progression and musical theme elements of 'Remembrance Day'. It's neither a cover or a straight re-working but we think you'll like it.

Finally B-Movie would like to apologise for their non-appearance at the Elektrofest event. This was due to numerous circumstances beyond our control and we hope that there weren't too many disappointed fans out there. Steve Hovington has left a more personal apology on the messageboard and it's hoped a new date can be re-scheduled soon.


April 2003

March 2003

Cherry Red Records are releasing a compilation cd containing four sessions the band recorded for the BBC between 1981-1984. It's released in mid July 2001.

This is great news as two of these sessions are previously unreleased and contain some of the band's finest work (Mediterranean, No Shadow of a Doubt, Amnesia etc.).

On a sad note, the BBC unfortunately no longer seem to have the master tapes of a session reecorded in Birmingham during 1982 for the Peter Powell show.

We are also trying to trace a television performance of Remembrance Day made by Yorkshire Television for their 'Calendar' show in October 1982. YTV have apparently erased the tape - DOH!

On a similar note we would also be interested in any video footage of B-Movie playing at the Futurama Festival at Bingley Hall in Stafford.

If anyone can help us acquire any of this archive material please e-mail us.
