ENDURE

Whitehouse will continue after Nantes. It comes after much soulsearching, people close to me making compelling arguments for such, threats of violence and other mitigating factors that I don't wish to delve into right now. Anyway, I haven't at all decided yet in what form this will be; this weekend's will, however, be the last show together with Philip, so on a personal level still marks the end of an amazing era. By the way, it's not true about the threats of violence.

Threats of violence?

Just turn the sound up to your usual level and point the speakers at them.

Thomas Transparent said...

Yes! Now I don't have to tack on a post-script to my laboriously constructed Whitehouse retrospective, and change every instance of "Whitehouse is..." to past tense.
School's out!

On a less selfish note, thumbs up to Mr. Best for helping to really kick this machine into high gear, if his recent C.E. work is any indication of things to come, we shouldn't fear for him suddenly fading into quiet obscurity.

well, i wasn't totally serious about threatening violence, but nice to see that it worked ;-)

When you're getting threats of violence, you know you're doing something right. :-)

Needless to say, I'm very intrigued to see what the latest version of whitehouse will be like...

Wonderful news. In a strange sense, Whitehouse is one of the only things about the UK that I miss.

Great to hear!

Glad to hear you're planning on continuing Whitehouse. Having both that and Philip doing CE will ensure that there's going to be a lot of new and fascinating things to listen to.

Man I feel out of the loop, I never knew that there was any chance of Whitehouse not living forever... it just seems like a music of an eternal present tense: Whitehouse just IS, even after William is gone I think it will never end. And that's a good thing!

So glad to hear it will go on in the literal sense!

i'm thinking that a reality television show to find a new whitehouse member is in order... "so you think you can wriggle like a fucking eel?"

B.DavisCollins said...

yes I like that idea a lot
