Longing for what hasn’t been obtained

The first clue in the treasure hunt is up at dredg.com. Here's the news article about it, go to the main page for the clue.

this will require travel.......there will be a prize waiting for the who's, who make it to the end. one of the prizes will be one of the original paintings from the catch without arms collection........the other prize will only reveal itself...... search and rewind.


In another competition, dredg are (according to this post) second in the Yahoo! Who's Next? poll, so do your best to tip the scales in dredg's favour. The aforementioned post contains some banners you could use to do so.

Vote for dredg

As per the dredg.com front page, go to Yahoo and vote for dredg! This isn't one of those polls that has no effect - if dredg win, they'll have a performance and interview recorded. It looks like a 'performance' means a single song, but if you want to spread the word and get some new live footage in the process, click away!

Swiss cake roll

"Looks like someone tried to cram-a-lam a Swiss Cake Roll into the disk drive"

The forum is down, and has been down for about 5 days after some MYSQL errors caused a little bit of havoc. I can't seem to get in contact with anyone, and the old EZBoard is still locked down, so I guess if you're utterly desperate for dredg talk there is the totally old school Kayasuma forum or #dredg on efnet for the IRC monkeys amongst you. For a brief tutorial in IRC, go here.
Update: It is being worked on and should be back again tonight.
Update update: It is back!

07/07 show postponed

In case anyone was in any doubt, Mean Fiddler has confirmed that the show tonight has been postponed.

"Owing to the incidents unfolding across the capital this afternoon, tonight's show at the Garage has been postponed.

Please check the website for more information on rescheduling details and ticket information."


BBC News also shows that most gigs across London are cancelled - as of posting, a decision is yet to be made about the boy band 'Blue' at Wembley.

Our thoughts are with everyone affected.

Extras for the Brave

According to a post on dredg.com on top of the previously mentioned acoustic rendition of "Bug Eyes" available through iTunes, there will be acoustic versions of "Catch Without Arms" and "Sangreal" avaialable through Sony Connect, starting today. This is probably limited to US citizens.

Internet Explorer users can look at the dredg page for the Sony Connect store here. Users of other browsers are left out in the cold. Well, Firefox users could try this User Agent Switching extension. Mac users could also try to find a way to spoof their 'User-Agent' in Safari/Camino if they like, but as there isn't any Sony Connect software for OSX, it would be a little pointless.
