He's a curious character. Has a touring fanbase that's better than most indies could hope for and still can't shift copies of his album at gigs.

You'll always walk alone is one of the best things I think he has ever written and I have to say its one of the most saddest whilst beautiful songs I think I have ever heard.

This should be all over radio 2 - anybody got that gingers haired wankers email address???

"You'll always walk alone" is my favorite Smiley Maybe "Can't let go of her now" is a "hit" too. Both songs are really beautiful.
"Anywhere away from you" is not that catchy at all, it needs a few listens before it starts to "grow".
I love "In my heart....." and now the question is: why is it not on the album?

It would be nice if we could push this CD and help the old boy out a bit. 

Also how about contacting DJ's on the links below and asking for a tune from the new album " The Great War"

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/djs/

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/shows/

http://www.capitalfm.com/on-air/

http://www.xfm.co.uk/onair

http://www.clyde1.com/default.asp

There is also a feature on face book where you can add a JC tune and if people like it it directs them to his page.

Maybe post details of his new CD and where to hear his songs on any other message boards that we go on etc.

Anybody got any other ideas on how to help promo this new record??

I think timing is important here to, maybe start all this 2 weeks before the release date don't you think?

I was just watching Richard Hawley on the Andrew Marr show. He had a bit of a chat with him, talking about how he's built up his fanbase by word of mouth and then he performed at the end of the programme.

This could be a great programme for Justin to go on as well - what do you think? If Justin did want to go on this programme his manager would probably have to arrange it - I'm not sure that a bunch of fans sending emails to the Andrew Marr show would work...although we could give it a go if you think it's appropriate?

Del stuff still gets the occasional play on Radio 2 but it tends to be Ken Bruce and Jeremy Vine as far as I can tell - to be effective I'd guess that fan-nagging to shows would probably be better aimed at Simon Mayo's drivetime or Chris Evans breakfast... Marconie and Radcliffe maybe but I'm not sure that they'd go for it...

Suggestions for alternative careers for the man if this doesn't do well?

Not sure it will come to that unless NOBODY buys the record.

I think we should help out if we can and do a bit of promo on his behalf.

Anybody interested, please make contact for further details.

I'm not sure I can be arsed to actively promote anything but it certainly takes some of the work out of deciding what to buy folk for their birthday for the year ahead.

Ok, I know I'm quoting myself but just found info that Rufus is going to be Andrew's show. So why not Justin?!  Smiley

http://www.rufuswainwright.com/forums/thread/615454.aspx

Repeating what I said before...do you think we should send requests to the show?

OK, Chrissie, go on with it and let's see if you get any reply... Some others can start requesting as well, count on me...
Rufus is having his opera shows in London in April so that may be the reason for having him in the programme. Justin could be on in May, with the release and the tour!!!

First official promo copy has found its way onto eBay.

Its there for the taking for anyone who can't wait for the official release.

Me personally, i'll pick up the promo when its a bit cheaper after the official CD release, there's always a big decrease on the promo prices then.
