2004 is shaping up to be the Cannanes most productive ever as Stephen O'Neil is now under contract to produce 4 CDs in the year leading up to the most important anniversary in indie rock or pop or whatever it is called. A number of other writers, artists, performers are negotiating parts in the 20th spectacular as we speak and announcements are expected to be made mid 2004 as to final lineups for North American, Asia Pacific tours as well as local appearances

Frances has been approached by New York artist Matt Galloway to sing the part of Albertine in a rock opera based on Marcel Proust's Remembrance of Things Past to be recorded at Steve Albinis studio in Chicago in July 2004. Having always been distinctly rude about rock operas in the past Gibson has done a surprising backflip and been immersing herself in volumes of Prousts work to get the feel of the character and has taken to draping herself in swathes of purple velvet and demanding to be called an artist at every possible moment

Monty Python paid hommage to Proust's novel in a sketch first broadcast on November 16th, 1972, called The All-England Summarize Proust Competition. The winner was the contestant who could best summarize A la recherche du temps perdu in fifteen seconds, "once in a swimsuit and once in evening dress."
Other more "academic" attempts have been made to summarize the novel in as few words as possible. Here are the winners (thus far):
Gérard Genette in Figures III: "Marcel devient écrivain" ["Marcel becomes a writer"] (3 words).
Vincent Descombes in Proust: philosophie du roman: "Marcel devient un grand écrivain" ["Marcel becomes a great writer"] (5 words).
Gérard Genette, again, in Palimpsestes: "Marcel finit par devenir écrivain" ["Marcel ends up becoming a writer"] (5 words).



Next release on Lamingtone looks like being the Ex Catheads "Our Frisco" CD
