RE: all things stoney and God-like

Oh yes, they have arrived. After months of Darkling anxiety, The Stone Gods fell upon us in a distinctly pleasurable manner, mainly in the form of 1.14 minutes of song. Impressed? You should be.

With a band that we at OI have pledged loyal allegiance to comes websites, and plenty of them. For starters, the glorious Stone Gods Temple – – built by the same young lady who constructed our fine HQ (tigerlilybolger), with the aid of Rock Blonde and us, SixSister. Our sister site has already accumulated well over a hundred members (and counting) within the forum, all of whom seem terribly impressed with how awesome we are. Then there is the official site, (graciously including a link to our sexy fansite on the main page), the official MySpace ( and finally the Temple’s MySpace for word-spreadage and such – All of this means nobody has any excuse for not knowing what’s happening (but that doesn’t mean you’re allowed to stop visiting us).

Jo has written some reviews of her four-day ride on the SG Express, so if you want a taster, go read. It’s been widely acknowledged that their first performances supporting Thin Lizzy all went superbly well, and everyone thinks they’re really quite good (visit the official site or the official MySpace for the 1.14 minutes I referred to earlier). The single ‘Burn The Witch’ is the title track for an EP that will be thrust upon us in the new year, with hopes on an album in the Summer. Is all that enough for you? Well tough, you can swallow these tour dates down, too:
