    Thanks for posting , I heard this last Sunday morning and found it really moving , the Atrix were a fantastic exciting live band , every performance I saw was unique and their recorded legacy does them real justice . Their lp one of the early releases on Scoff , a great irish label which is long overdue a re appraisal , came with a cassette copy of the album which I still stick on from time to time

  2. Heard this on Sunday alright and felt sure they would top it with ‘Treasure on the Wasteland’ a song I have spent years trying to find. I was standing by with iPhone ready to record from my cheap radio loudspeaker like we did listening to Dave Fanning back in my youth. Alas no. Respect to ‘The Moon is Puce’ and all, but anyone got a digital version of TotW?

    Thank you for the comments. Here is the requested ‘Treasure On The Wasteland’

  4. I was a very close friend of Johns. In fact i was by his side when he died, 15 years ago, here in Copenhagen.
    I have copies of his two short movies and his solo album- “Stoned Circle”- which should be in the public domain.
    Reply please- I need assistance putting these things out. Permission has been granted by family.

  6. Fanning Sessions Says:

    Tony, I have received your package, will get to work and keep you updated.

    Here is a 30-min RTE broadcast gig from 1982 by The Atrix I just uploaded to YouTube. You might like to share the link for Atrix fans. Thanks, John

    Always been wanting to find copies of John’s poetry books. One of them turned up online yesterday. Being that words were the most striking thing with him, I’m looking forward to reading it. His theatrical interests are even more subsumed into the past I guess, but again it would be good to see any of that out and abroad. Half histories are prodigal, nomadic and nearly something they shouldn’t be…..
