Memories of Maker… and what he’s up to now

September 19, 2008

Surfing around, there is clearly a lot of interest still in the great man. I guess you would say he was something of a cult figure. For those of you who would like to share your ‘Memories of Maker’, this is the site where you can be heard! Did you attend a great Raymonde gig? Did you have a chat backstage? We want to know about it! The best submissions will be posted here on this site. Send yours to: using the subject line ‘The milktrain’. Over to you…

Autofellatio extract leaked / Morrissey-Solo statement

June 29, 2008

James Maker’s memoir ‘Autofellatio‘ has been leaked online, or at least an extract has. Published privately to authorised friends on the James Maker MySpace site, it seems that some rascal has only gone and posted in up on the Morrissey Solo web site. You can read James’ response statement here – where as expected, he dips in amongst the in-breds that contribute to that site, and emerges with dignity intact.

Apparently, James has moved to Valencia in Spain. No word on his recording plans at present.
