If my corneas melt, blame Starflyer 59




I fear more and more that my corneas are beginning to meld unhelpfully with my computer screen as I wade deeper into the world wide mire of the interweb.

My latest obsession was sparked when I discovered very little of Starflyer 59 on Wikipedia, the public access online encyclopedia of some renown. Starflyer 59 (or SF59 to those in the know) are a Christian rock band that I have followed for some time. As SF59 fans have a tendency towards fixation beyond that of a casual fan, I expected to see a feast of text on Wikipedia. But no, there were only a few lines, which on Wikipedia barely amounts to a sausage.

Well, not until now. I have started by adding a discography to the page. You can see it by clicking your little arrow here. See that discography bit? That's me, that is.

Of course, now this has ignited another obsession in that completist bit of my brain that insists I own every bit of Starflyer 59 plastic on this polluted Earth. So if anyone has She's The Queen, Le Vainqueur, Plugged or Live At The Paradox (which I had forgotten existed until I researched for Wikipedia), please let me know. Please. No, seriously...

My eyes hurt.

You can get some of those reissues now as Silver and She's A Queen were reissued together. Gold and Le Vanqueer. If you get a copy of a Plugged CD let me know as I have been searching for a copy. I can't afford the original on eBay so a copy is fine. Glenn

Since this post, I have been able to get the EPs plus the re-released Gold and Silver. Still no sign of Plugged though, still, will let you know if I trace a copy.

Good to see the Starflyer 59 page on Wikipedia has also been added to.

I must also get round to buying their new songbook When I Learn To Sing, although I may be too late. Roll on the new album...
