CRISPIAN MILLS, ex of Kula Shaker, has sent an e-mail to fans on the band’s mailing list explaining his reasons for leaving the band and his plans for the future.
He writes that he plans to embrace the internet in a big way.
“My idea is to open up the doors of communication via the net to share ideas and inspirations from fans across the planet. There are thousands of people on this mailing list who live in every part of the world. I am inviting everyone on the list to open up and communicate the key issues, feelings and inspirations that they feel are important as we move into the 21st century,” he writes.
He wants it to be not so much a web site as “a ‘collage of consciousness’ where the energy of your thoughts and emotions are the colours that we will use to paint a unique musical picture. Feel free to be serious, funny, surreal, open and honest. Lets say the project may become something of a musical time message, a collective spirit that chronicles our being at this historic moment in time.”
