News from Derek on Planet X's new album!


Hello Friends,

Allan Holdsworth left a nice message on my answering machine saying that he has record 5 or 6 songs, and will be finished up by the fall.

I will finish all of my tracks between August 2-24th.

I cant wait to hear what Allan has recorded - I am as excited as all of you are!

Here are the song titles for Planet X 2006:

1. Alien Hip Hop
2. She Tyranny
3. Snuff
4. The Thinking of Stones
5. Kingdom of Dreams
6. Desert Girl
7. I Crave
8. Poland
9. Quantum Factor

You may have heard "Alien Hip Hop" on Virgil's OTV record. Virgil has made some alterations to the original version. "Quantum Factor" has also been altered a bit from it's original form.

I will keep you posted as the recording progresses - again, we greatly appreciate everyone's loyalty and patience - I am confident that the new PX will be released in the spring of 2006.
