Close But No Cigar
Earlier this year me and John Foxx spent weeks creating and meticulously honing our cover version of Pink Floyd's Have a Cigar, which is featured on the cover cd of this month's Mojo mag. You can read an interview with us about the process here
Well, guess what? Mojo didn't use the finished version we gave them on the CD. Nope, by mistake they used a very early demo we sent them. An mp3, very rough demo version. Considering the song is all about the total lack of respect between the corporate music machine and the musical artist, its quite a fitting tribute don't you think?
Anyway, theres an official apology here, and you can download the finished version if you like
