News : 22nd October 2001

xmas_treeThe latest news from Rough Trade on the reissue of From Gardens Where We Feel Secure is that the album is due for release early next year.

Anne Stephenson is a violin player who formed part of Virginia’s band during the 80s. Since then, she’s performed and arranged strings for a wide variety of different artists including The Manic Street Preachers, Roxy Music and Billy Cowie.

One of the projects Anne has worked on is a special benefit CD for the Tourette Syndrome Association (one of Anne’s own children is a sufferer). The CD EP Dance With Me? Christmas Tree features Anne singing on the title track – a wonderful pop song that does indeed conjure up a Christmas feel to it.

If you would like to buy a copy of the CD – and help the Tourette’s Syndrome Association at the same time, then it can be ordered for £5.50 (inc P+P) with Cheques/PO’s payable to ‘Tourette Syndrome (UK) Association’ and sent to:

Tourette Syndrome (UK) Association
PO BOX 26149
KY12 9WT

All proceeds from the sales of the CD are in aid of the TSA.
