The Pop Group are releasing a live album from their early years. had a listen to the sample and it sounds great!

for years you could only really easily get hold of 'Y' from this band but with this, the rarities releases and the new album their music is finally getting out there!

Not been said on any of their own accounts but Mark has said it a few times (and since deleted). The live plans have definitely been shelved as I know they were planning 'How Much Longer...' live sets to support the reissue (which is fantastic).

that is a shame. the new album did grow on me and the various reissues of archive material were lovingly done. a 'How Much Longer..' live show would have been great.

something obviously changed- they have just announced they are working on a new record with Dennis Bovell and Hank Shocklee from Public Enemy producing!
unless this is their 'Let it Be'..

Yes, I'm shocked! Glad to hear though, no doubts they can produce another great LP (listened to Citizen Zombie again last night and there are some huge tracks on there!)

Maybe Mark is a bit too quick on the trigger on twitter! Remember his quickly deleted rants about ATP? Although in hindsight he was probably right about that :)
