Hi

I'm Andrew Cox of Pump. Glad you like the album. No problem with you making the album available. Sadly our second album never got released, due to being dicked around by a record label (Trident) for so long that we just gave up. It was called Sombrero Fallout, and featured Colin Potter on guitar on one track, and he co-engineered it with me. It's much better than the first album (IMHO).

Anyone out there want to release it?

Curious Guy said...

Hello Andrew, thanks for leaving a comment and making no objection that I posted your music here. I would like to hear the 2nd album. Hopefully someone reads this and is interested to release it.
All the best.

Er... if you're still checking up on this, I've been googling Andrew and ended up here. If you (Andrew Hulme also) wish to contact me please do so via my MySpace page - http://www.myspace.com/yaomitl. Listened to Sombrero Fallout today - a wonderful CD. Would rather not post bad news here on your blog so please see blog section on MySpace page.

On 80's Pump was one of the bands with more fans across the world. They even were my favorite band since I was 7. I loved all of them, but specially Andrew, He was more than an idol for me.
