BIG NEWS! US, UK, European tour, reissues, unreleased material!!!

Thanks for keeping up everyone :-) Still planning to overhaul the discography section, update the tour page, and get a forum on here. Anything you guys/gals send me, I collect it, archive it, and keep it safe, so thank you very much for the contributions. I hope to scan/upload as much as I can sooner than later, lots of updates and surprises in store. I recently moved from Texas to Minneapolis for a new job, and have been unpacking and reorganizing my life, playing catch-up. For the meanwhile, I may create another section devoted for the new tour, reissues, etc., but I will continue updating this news section as new developments occur. 2012 will be a great year for Codeine! Currently processing 20+ live Codeine shows... Very special thanks to Codeine, Nick, and Bernd for the awesome contributions which I hope to share with the fans soon. As always, I love receiving Codeine mail, for any news, queries, stories, thoughts, contributions, hate-mail, etc., please drop a line; if you've sent me something, and I haven't responded, keep bugging me, I get distracted easily;-)

Hello everyone,

Nothing new...yet. Doing this site how I WANT to seems like an impossible task for the meanwhile. But that's a lie, I'm just not hardcore enough. But someday, I hope to be. I'm certainly hardcore about CODEINE, but making a $ and paying bills always seems to take priority... Eventually: rescan, redo the discography. Tear out all code/references to Netscape and Microsoft Internet Explorer. Use CSS. Make everythign W3C compliant. Unless I can commit myself totally, it's pointless gimping around, so I will try and maintain this site in its current form, the best I can, until I can rip it all down and replace it with SOMETHING NEW. Nag me. It helps. When I feel like I can't go on, receiving Codeine-mail reinvigorates my broken spirit.

If you haven't received a response from me, I am here, and I have received all of your messages, and I am sorry if I have not written back:-( I will try and be better about it; don't hesitate to contact me again! For those of you waiting for cds...hold tight...

Please don't let this dissuade you from contributing to the site. Always looking for new/old material.

-Brian



RECENT NEWS:

The pry.com servers were moved and/or shut down. I'm not sure how/why the pry.com/codeine site still works... BUT in any case, I am now hosting it here:

http://www.heartofthunder.com/codeine

Until I get in contact with Dan H. and figure something out, there will be 2 versions of the site, an outdated one at pry.com and the current one at heartofthunder.com .

I fixed the looping sound. Replaced my obsolete bgsound/object tags with an invisible Flash video. I'd like to upgrade the video (sound), give it a longer lead-in, but this requires actionscript, omg, f Flash, or a sound re-edit - both are desperately needed. Don't worry, I'll get to it...
