(Sadly due to technical difficulties beyond our control we can only show you our pictures at the start of the text, so we'vce included captions with each one and told you when to refer to them. This is a pain we know - you can if you wish view the article at our other site www.alansalbumarchives.moonfruit.com where this looks more 'normal'!)(see captions 1, 2 and 3 for the cover, royal crest and price of admission!)
Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your laptops! We at the Boface Time Experiments are terribly sorry for the mess we seem to have caused to the time-space continuum! We thought we knew what we were but doing but, hey, we can’t always be right guys can we? I mean look at the Hadron Collider and the destruction that caused to the Earth before the heroic Brian Cox managed to turn it off (before telling us the 15 other ways we were likely to die!) I’m sure it’s all their fault really you know and not ours at all. But it’s not all been that bad has it?! I mean granted, many of you have been forcibly ejected into time-zones you never wanted to be in, ancient plagues have killed half the world’s population, the planet is currently groaning because of holding more species than it’s ever had before and old enemies and battles once fought long ago seem to have started up again but, well, you have to laugh don’t you? Ha-har ha-har ha-har! Ha-har ha-har ha-har, err, ha!
Last issue, Nelson had left the Jefferson Airplane at a crossroads in their life, debating whether to carry on bringing groovy music to the masses – or give it up and just go speed-skating. This week, as our roving reporter celebrates his fifth year ‘out of time’ – still trapped in the ‘old dimensions’ of time before BoFace disrupted the space-time continuum - he takes a peek at what really happened during that first fateful union of David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash...
Why, hello there my liege! My name is Lord Prince Veseckian-Barkley-Seymour the third, but you can call me Charlie. Or Sir, depending on your station in life. I’ve been chosen to speak on behalf of my nation, partly because of my wonderful eruditeness and partly because there aren’t many Tudors who can actually write! (After all, what’s the point of educating people – they might start – gulp – thinking for themselves!)
ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR ALL, EXCEPT WHEN THE COALITION COMES TO CALL! WHEN THE RICH THEY HAVE A BALL, THEY MAKE OUTLAWS OF US ALL
WOW! IT WORKED! WE’VE JUST HAD WORD THAT THE TIME STREAM SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN PUT BACK TOGETHER AGAIN AND LIFE CAN GO BACK TO NORMAL! WE’RE EXPECTING THE CHANGE BACK ANY DAY NOW, SO SAY GOODBYE TO YOUR ANCESTORS AND SUCCESSORS WHILE YOU CAN! SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE (IF YOU COME FROM AN AGE WITH THE INTERNET ANYWAY!) THIS IS ALAN’S ALBUM ARCHIVES OVER AND OUT! P.S. APPARENTLY A SIDE EFFECT OF THE PARALLEL UNIVERSE WE ACCIDENTALLY CREATED IS THAT ONE OF THESE NEWSLETTERS WILL STILL EXIST IN OUR NEW FUTURE, HAVING BEEN SENT DOWN A WORMHOLE, A BLACK HOLE AND A TIME VORTEX. MOST PEOPLE WILL PROBABLY DISMISS IT AS JUST A SOMEWHAT WORDY PRACTICAL JOKE PUBLISHED ON APRIL FOOL’S DAY, BUT WE ALL KNOW BETTER, DON’T WE READERS?!
