THE WILD CHERRIES: That's Life (hac113)
When we first started the Purple Hearts / Wild Cherries reissue project we imagined all the Festival singles from both bands compiled onto one cd. Well, the Hearts disc turned out full length and now a recent discovery means the Wild Cherries will also be a monster. Due out in March. read more

THE TRIANGLES: Seventy-Five Year Plan (hac125)
The follow-up to 2005's Magic Johnson is just about ready and will be preceded by a three track promo single led by a rather curiously-titled track 'Meat Blanket'. What have those Triangles been up to? Find out on the new album, due out in April.
LUKE RUSSELL: The Kiss That Lasted All Weekend (hac124)
NIC DALTON & HIS GLOOMCHASERS
The band have recorded nearly half of the follow-up to Home Of The Big Regret and should have the next one all done by mid-year. In the meantime, Nic will be releasing his next batch of 4 track recordings from yesteryear. The boxes of cassettes have uncovered a swag of unreleased songs from 1987-88, including early solo versions of Plunderers classics such as Muffin and Is My Time Up?
Various Artists - PLUNDER the songs of STEVIE PLUNDER
This won't until the second half of 2007, so you'll have to be patient.
Half A Cow will be spending the next few months rounding up some very special friends and fans of the late Stevie Plunder - all doing their own versions of the classics from his songbook.
