News Flash: new Alphabet Business Concern announcement !

Postby Alternate BC » Mon Jul 24, 2006 10:56

There now follows an announcement from THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN

THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN have tallied an "Overwhelming response" to the recent questions asked of YOU.

The busy hive of activity that makes up the current quad, that IS
Cardiacs have been somewhat taken aback by the support and general
cheer that YOU have communicated.

It is for that reason, THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN can announce,
with the band's condonance, Cardiacs WILL play at The Astoria Theatre
in London this November.

Your song requests have been forwarded to the band.

Those expecting a radically different set of songs must wait until
the "New Recording Project" has been completed.

Cardiacs will not be rushed.

Those wishing to bask in the glow of familiar, yet comforting
material may do well to buy tickets at the first opportunity.

The concert will take place on Friday the 10th of November 2006.

Cardiacs thank YOU.


with respect

EVIDENCE

There now follows an announcement from THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN

In order to keep YOUR FAVOURITE GROUP alert, THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN wish to announce that, by way of punishment, CARDIACS do not have the faintest idea exactly which songs they will be performing from night to night on the approaching 2007 TOUR.
Read on, and in doing so ‘get wise’ to an opportunity for YOU to view recently filmed activity of CARDIACS hard at work.



The Seasons are changing and after an IMPOVERISHED EXCUSE for a summer, winter once again draws in.
The everyday feeble-minds trudge gloomily on, cursing THE EARTH’s inevitable ‘rotation-cycle’, finding sorrow in every turn, misery in every opportunity.
DANK DISPLEASURE IN EVERY WELL-MEANING GLANCE.

Not YOU.

YOU carry a kernel of hope in YOUR BEAUTIFUL HEART.
YOU light the way for those stricken by THE BLEAK HOURS.
YOU hold forth, gushing the florid syllables of the condemned man ‘let-off’ at the eleventh hour.
YOU bring cheer.
"COLD HANDS - WARM HEART".
YOU bring love.
So, then, as the forthcoming CARDIACS tour draws ever closer, THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN has deemed it both appropriate and urgent that the following matters be absorbed for the best part of a day for the benefit of YOUR wellbeing.
What is this so called phenomenon ‘they’ refer to as DEATH?
What if the particular death YOU die is not even DEATH?
Is death not merely an idea, albeit a fairly interesting one? An overrated construct at best, yet the rantings of those struck by religion, those devoid of it and the generally unhinged.
Is it that YOU are RISEN APES, looking forward to a gloomy eternity in the soil, YOUR atoms dispersed and YOUR miserable thoughts eaten up by tree-roots and tendrils?
Perhaps YOU feel that you are FALLEN ANGELS and can expect to fly THE CHRIST back up ‘there’ once you have lived out YOUR pathetic drudge through this vale of tears.
There are those out there, dwellers of stranger echelons than these, that perceive this whole existence as merely an hallucination. A shoddy scenario made all up in the brain of a sorry underachiever, bereft of any real imagination.
Where then does that leave CARDIACS?
Are Cardiacs really the best that this failure of a deity can invent out of HIS CELESTIAL MIND-BANK?
Are you sure that it is not YOU who are this failure of a deity?
THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN are aware that these thoughts will lead to the quickening of the heart rate, the sweating of the palms.

Take comfort, then, that THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN has generously taken matters in hand.
The first rule of any wisdom, it would seem, is to TURN EVENTS TO ONE’S OWN ADVANTAGE.
Recently CARDIACS have been put through their paces, owing to ‘a certain entertainment’ falling conveniently into the hands of THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN.
The entertainment has presented itself in the form of an ‘incriminating’ film… EVIDENCE.

Using under-handed deceit and ABSOLUTE BLACKMAIL to benefit YOU, THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN has ‘persuaded’ CARDIACS to increase their workload.
You were previously informed that CARDIACS will not be performing exactly the same set every night on this tour.
In keeping with our reputation as The Modest Concern, THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN can announce that the previous ‘teaser’ contains more body to it than YOU may have thought or, indeed, expected.

As a result of THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN’s stern words, and of direct benefit to YOU, CARDIACS have completely ‘over-shot’, foolishly ‘learning’ far more songs than was actually required. CARDIACS, therefore, must now perform a different variety of tunes over the duration of the tour. This will be a positive boon to all those in The Loyal who WILL insist on attending repeat performances.

YOU may not experience a repeat repertoire.

What treasures may this revolting trove contain?

THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN can reveal that material is being TACKLED from EVERY ERA OF THE GROUP’S GLORIOUS HISTORY.
CARDIACS will be performing this gargantuan task in an attempt to suppress the EVIDENCE.
THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN, or if YOU like, The Futuristic Concern, has sourced means to make this evidence available for YOU to view, through a, shall we say, ‘very popular internet site’.
A site already replete with unauthorized ‘footage’ of YOUR favourite group.
THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN feels the time has come to ‘blow the lid’ on CARDIACS’ WHOLE SORRY VENTURE.

The whole ‘lid-blowing’ exercise will be available for YOU to purchase before YOU are in the ground.

Was that the best part of a day...?

I'd like to be there/where? to hear Dive, and Hopeless would be nice too. That's just for starters of course.

Gloomy News is there. You can hear the last few notes at the beginning of ACACBIAES
You are an inspiration to me. You are my inspiration of how not to be. You are my inspiration to achieve a better way of life.

Bugger that was meant to be an edit and you can't edit or delete here. Now I don't look so clever.
