Mmmmmm. comments from other of JM's 'circle' seem to point to him being mightily upset by something in IB Land. Hope this is an immediate reaction to a situation and when things calm down normal service will be resumed. Given the positive reviews that are filtering through for the new album it would be a great shame for it be overshadowed by a split.

They have some of the least supportive followers I have ever encountered. It staggers me every time I see it.
No evidence that this latest joy-glitch is down to such followers but it would be my first guess.
If MOTP is half as good as TTS it will be a brilliant album and, reluctantly, I think I'd rather JM drew a line under a job well done and just did stuff he enjoyed instead.

Tweet withdrawn so hopefully nothing serious.  :?

I know what you mean Pedro - like yourself, I frequent the IB forum but I do find some of the comments unnecessarily negative for 'fans' and wouldn't be surprised if JM got a bit hacked off / dispirited  occasionally.  

That said, it's all been pretty positive recently (except for the 'why no Scottish gig?' thread which I have stayed well clear of!)

Just a vent I reckon, give the guy a hug :)

I pre-ordered Map of the Past the other day from http://www.themerchdesk.co.uk and I'm looking forward to getting it.

I ordered The Tall Ships at the same time (from http://www.themerchdesk.co.uk) and am enjoying it literally as we speak. Reminds me very much of Kino and thats not just JM's vocals. Very good album indeed.

www.themerchdesk.co.uk were very prompt in dispatching my order and it came much sooner than I expected. Wondreful.

Jake, has Nellie got you on the payroll at http://http://www.themerchdesk.co.uk (damn, you've got me at it now!!!)

Seriously, the new album is getting great reviews and it would be a great shame for this to overshadow it - I have my own thoughts on what may have caused the outburst, but will keep my own counsel on it as the last thing anything like this needs is more fuel adding to the fire!!!

Roll on the 26th, and Mrs Goggins at Merchland Post Office being inundated with large parcels to send  :lol:
