Great news from Dave Smith of Salander:
Salander are re-releasing The Fragility Of Innocence on November 20th. The album has been totally remastered and will contain three extra tracks that date back to 2005. These were the first tracks recorded by Dave Smith and Dave Curnow and sowed the seed of ideas that would later find the two Dave’s forming Salander. These tracks too have been remastered. Two are instrumentals and the other came about when Dave C discovered a Jon Anderson Lyric generator on the internet. All he had to do was enter a name, a place and a general item onto the site. He chose Floppsy The Bunny,Osnabruch, and a Pot Noodle. Thus, the words spat back to us became the song.
The Fragility Of Innocence will be available from www.salander.bandcamp.com as a name your price in order for people who bought the original to download the remastered version with bonus tracks for free.
There are no plans for any new Salander music in the near future as Dave Smith is now living and working in Lanzarote in The Canary Islands but he hopes to start writing in the new year.
Let me (Brad) just state: this is one of the single most powerful albums I have ever heard. I loved the first two Salander releases–CRASH COURSE FOR DESSERT and STENDEC–but this is even superior to those two. I’ve had a review copy for a while now, but I simply have not been able to write about FRAGILITY as it simply moves me so much, I can’t express my views in words. Strange, I suppose, but true. I’m going to keep trying, however.
Regardless, you need to BUY this album, and now.–BB

Floppsy the bunny! That’s hilarious! This is a great album – their cultural commentary is excellent.
