From mikeoldfield.org:

[i]The Tubular Bells 30th Anniversary issue of Dark Star with exclusive Philip Newell interview and comprehensive bootlegs article is about to be printed.

Also featuring a special report on the Beocord tape machine which Mike used for the Tubular Bells demo and rare photos, news and comment, this issue is one that no Mike Oldfield fan should be without.

The Philip Newell interview is one of the key Oldfield related interviews of the last decade: On Ommadawn, Philip recalls "...I remember waking up one morning and hearing this phenomenal guitar playing. I was half asleep, thinking what is this? This sounds fantastic. I got up and dressed and there was Mike playing with a music stand in front of him and a copy of Mayfair magazine open looking at the girls.  I thought well if that's what it takes... anyhow when we were mixing the stereo version when we came to the end of side one we had the whole mixing desk covered in girlie magazines..."

There's still time to subscribe or order a single issue by visiting http://www.mikeoldfield.org/

That is without question the best MO anecdote I've ever heard. I might never listen to Ommadawn in quite the same way again. Did that guy who used it as a soundtrack to a porn film know something we, untill now, didn't?

Anyone knows if I can suscribe Dark Star without a PayPal account?

Yes, you can print out this form and send it by post, together with your payment (either cheque, postal order, international money order or eurocheque in pounds sterling or cash in either pounds, US dollars or Euros, though most postal services advise against sending cash through the post).

I have to agree with Toby about that anecdote...

The Darkstar issue is just great, though I would like it to have "more stuff in it" as in the past... But also the interview is pretty long, so I guess this is the main reason. But I do hope we don't have to wait many months again to get the next release - and the rest of the interview !
