Thanks Spesh and everyone else who is still showing an interest. I have been busy as an IT Specialist for the past 10 years for the NHS and now for a private Healthcare company and still have a recording studio where I produce stuff for me and my friends. I do not have to justify myself here or anywhere else for that matter, however it seems that some people are a little confused and I feel yet again obliged to post (this is a rare occasion).
Mark Left the band and every time I try to speak with him about our career or anything else for that matter he puts the phone down on me without any resolution, in fact as soon as I say "It's Chris", he says "Chris Who" and I say "Chris Peat", the line goes dead. He does not want to communicate with me in a civil manner, believe me I have tried.
Other comments here I would like to reply to:
"Slo-Moshun", lol crock of sh1t, this was his first attempt at using someone else in the industry after me, you play it, you hear it !
Next : If you have listened to anything actually produced by him you will clearly hear a difference between "the keyboard player" being there and not, he can DJ don't get me wrong but actually playing an instrument, lol, don't make me laugh. I can play pretty much anything you put in front of me to a low standard in some cases but I'll always knock up a tune from my head or play something that you would know.
I have posted a tune up on soundcloud for your ears to enjoy its here http://soundcloud.com/chrispeat/acid-lift
and this is the only thing I am prepared to post at this time else I will be giving away my material, again !
Thanks again for clarifying how you all feel but if circumstances were different as they were I would still be prepared to rejoin the band and make some more exciting ground breaking material and perform LIVE (this was my favourite part), however Mark just does not want this and really should stop / desist the performances that are very damaging to the name in my opinion. You see a flyer for Altern8 and you get a DJ Set, you see a flyer for Altern8 LIVE / PA and you get Mark and the crew miming to some tape recording or DJ Set which was prepare earlier, there is no spontaneity, there is no love and there is no honour in his actions. It's a perfect scam, any monkey can wear a mask and mime, aha there he is.
