an appearance from the recording studio last night on Ray Coke's new MTV

the Fan Club Prez, just got off the phone with Paul Craid, INXS' Manager.
Here's some of what he said:
is extrememly excited about the new album, like nothing he's seen before.
It's going to be very 90's, no retro 80's sound for them. They're rehearsing
in London right now and heading to Vancouver this weekend to begin recording
with Bruce Fairbairn. He's keeping his fingers crossed for that release
date of Sept/Oct.
INXS is going
to release a cd-rom. The work begins on it next week in London. No more
