This is true, and George is not the first to remind me about this. There's no question of my forgetting it, and I really will make all efforts to complete the post by the end of 06 (although I fear that, expectations about the post are by now so high, that it can never meet them...)
Owen's program for a hauntological Pop - 'The Caretaker producing Anne Shelton, or Fennesz collaborating with Hutch' - is highly appetising, although I see no reason why the putative group should be limited to covers.
