As you already could find out, zshare is under maintenance already from Thursday. I really hope they can fix their problems very soon. I really don't want the same thing that happened to me like last year with quicksharing.
Here's some news.
Cherry Red finally released a sort of 'Best Of' of one of their most interesting acts from back in the day: Five Or Six. A pity there's only 10 songs on it so I hope there's more to come soon. It has the 'Another Reason' 7", the 'Pillows And Prayers' contribution and a few songs of the 'Polar Exposure' album and the Spanish release. Also 1 track from the 'Four Of...' 12".
Check it out here.
For the Ensemble Pittoresque fans: here's a blog run by ex-member Paulus Wieland with more insight on the re-releases. Seems he wasn't informed on all that. Check it out here.
Hope I can post something in the next days.
