Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

Mick Karn - Titles - Album

Antony Michaelides (24 July 1958 – 4 January 2011), better known as Mick Karn, was born into a Greek Cypriot family, in Nicosia, Cyprus. In late October, of 1961, the family emigrated to London, England, when Andonis was three years old.

Mick Karn helped form the the band Japan, whose other members included David Sylvian, keyboardist Richard Barbieri and Sylvian's brother Steve Jansen as drummer. The band began as a group of friends, who all studied at the same school. As youngsters they played music as a means of escape, playing Sylvian's two-chord numbers – sometimes with Karn as the front man, sometimes with Sylvian at the fore, guitarist Rob Dean joined the band later.

Following Japan's split in 1982 Karn persued various solo projects. One of those projects included his first solo album entitled 'Titles', released in 1982.

Karn recorded the album in London, during July and August 1982. The album made number 74 in the UK Album charts.

The only single released entitled 'Sensitive' is a reworking of the Roberto Carlos song La Distancia

01 - Tribal Dawn
02 - Lost Affections in a Room
03 - Passion in Moisture
04 - Weather the Windmill
05 - Saviour, Are You With Me?
06 - Trust Me
07 - Sensitive
08 - Piper Blue

In June 2010, Mick Karn announced on his website that he had been diagnosed with advanced-stage cancer. After a long battle Mick Karn died at home at 4.30pm on 4th January 2011.

Mick was a great musician, producing music that was both interesting and thought provoking. I had continued to follow Mick's music, as well as other members of Japan, and have to say that it came as a shoke that he had passed away. Mick Karn will be sadly missed and my thoughts go to his family, friends and many fans out there that loved his music and will continue to do so for many more years to come. RIP.
