Please email any info to Alan: utle2uk@tiscali.co.uk

Work may now be finished on "The Crack In The Cosmic Egg" CD-Rom project. But, nothing is ever complete!
We got it as complete as we could, but already we are accumulating new info to add to a future edition.
We are also still after some items as detailed on my wants lists page.

Those that have the CD-Rom know what info we already have, but there are also odd singles covers,
incomplete covers, and ones we could with better scans of. Some such stuff, like the Argile "Weltmusik" cover
I've now found. Yet some things are really proving to be elusive! So, take a look at the listings below, and see
if there's anything you've got that we haven't. Please start/keep digging and help us!

We also welcome any rare music and videos!
Maybe the next edition could be a DVD-Rom, which would give us 4 gigabytes to play with, or at least I could trim the UT site sector! Whatever, do you have some unpublished Krautrock material? Would it be possible for us to use it? I do have quite a few things on tape that would be well-worth adding, if we can get rights/permission. To be able to use any such material we need permission from the artist and/or owner of the work. Any such material is used as "promo" only with the rights remaining with the artist. Sound files are best supplied to me as standard CD tracks or wav files, as the mp3 encoder I have seems to do a better job than most encoding to 56k. Videos are best supplied as avi or wmv files on CD or DVD. If they are supplied as DVD film I can rip them using DVD tools that I have, but that can be long-winded and awkward. We cannot pay for any such material, but the more multimedia elements we can add the better future editions will be.
