Peace, I'm outta here...

All good things must come to an end and the good people at Blogger's decision to stop supporting ftp websites means that I am bringing the curtain down on The White Noise Revisited. I could have moved it somewhere else and carried on but it seems like the right time to call it a day. I started this blog back in August 2006 and in that time I have had two lovely daughters and my job requires me to expend all of my (limited) creative juices on a daily basis. These two factors have resulted in the gradual decline of TWNR. It ain't what it used to be (back in the day it got props in The Guardian) and that was really rammed home to me when I went back and compiled the roll call of featured artists below. I've loved doing this though, and I still want to keep an outlet for my sporadic musical musings - so anyone who is still interested will be able to find me at -

Ecstasy in Slow Motion

I am hoping to sort it out so that The White Noise Revisited remains alive as an archive but, as of May 1st, there's a chance that it may cease to exist.


But hey, it will live on in our hearts and minds, right?

Bye bye.
