They have no record deal. They are however rumoured to be in and out the studio writing and recording, possibly going it alone. And they most definitely are gettin pissed and by the looks of Justin last week they're enjoyin themselves.

Hi,

I know that their last record company lost most of its acts when Mercury swallowed it, but isn't it bizarre that one of Britain's best bands doesn't have  a deal?

Aren't their management on the case to rectify this situation?

Any news to this end would be really good!

I don't know that they've decided yet what they want to do with themselves, which may be why we've not heard anything.

Also, I think that the lack of a "deal" is understandable, since record companies tend to like to sign bands who sell stuff, and the Dels aren't as popular as, say, Robbie Williams. Smiley

But Robbie Williams costs £80m to sign, Dels don't. Plus, I guarantee more would be sold if the record companies bothered to do a bit of publicising for the band. Apart from the occasional (not any more) appearance on VH1 the only things I ever saw was one advert for Roll To Me and them performing Here And Now on TOTP, after it had sold enouh to reach No 17 or something. And they have in the past sold good numbers of albums, these buyers haven't just died or disappeared, they probably just don't keep up to date with the band like us on the web and therefore don't even know that new releases are out. Also, if the record labels are looking to sell singles, it would be a good idea to release the singles a while before the albums and not after, especially as Del Amitri are an album based band, not singles chart players. But I'm sure a competent label will come along at some point.

Hi there...
the post dates from long I hope It will be read...
I am French and now D.A. since a few years, I won on a radio station the "change everything album"...first it sounded good but no more.
I am musician now and among all covers we play in my band del's songs are the only ones people never heard before and they often come to us to ask who wrote this song......it means a lot !!
This is my opinion : what a waste...it's a great great mistake that D.A. are not known as they would deserve.
It is a shame most listeners do not notice the real talent these guys have....well I could write tons of pages about D.A........I love you all thank you !!! Grin

In Australia we have a TV station called SBS, mostly foreign shows and news. One day some heavy drama (I dont know if it was french), but this man was tragically walking along a beach to "Sleep instead of teardrops". Very moving. I also think it is ridiculous that they are unsigned, but I think the band probably like having a bit of independance, may have told the record companies to shove it.  Does anyone know when Justins birthday is, or what starsign he is? I am dying to know. Also how old is he?

Why does he like to be 42? I ll have to call you the oracle.  I am 38, I think the ideal age for anyone is 28.  Having said that now I am looking forward to 40, if its good enough for Justin.
