News from the Tombs

So, having just returned from a brief working trip interstate, it seems like a good time to kick off the new year and make some small improvements to the blog and some news about what’s being planned for the near future.

Firstly, in addition to the traditional ways of following blogs and the Plunder the Tombs  Facebook page, it’s now possible to receive notifications of new posts using Twitter, or by getting notifications sent directly to your email address. Just click on either of the icons below for FB or Twitter, alternatively, you’ll find the email notification option down to your lower right.

Secondly, although downloads have never been the main emphasis of  Plunder the Tombs, I’ve changed the file sharing host to Media Fire, following some suggestions that the old one Plunder the Tombs was using was too slow. Also, after some advice from those far more tech-savvy than myself (never let it be said that I don’t listen to you Mr Lafayette!), all new downloads will be in a .zip format rather than the previous .rar, which should make life a lot easier for those readers not using a MS Windows platform.

That said, those downloads which have been provided, and have been unavailable now for some time, will all be back up again for download in the .zip format in the very near future.

Finally, while we’re on the subject of downloads, yes, there will be a new Plunder the Tombs compilation, once enough material has been exhumed. There are already substantial plans afoot for how it will manifest, but at this point, I think somewhere around mid year seems likely.

A third compilation is also under consideration, but not of Goth / Death Rock for a change, but rather of bands from the late sixties and early seventies who were to prove so instrumental in influencing the scene that came to be. Hopefully, that will also be seeing the light of day sometime this year.

In the meanwhile, thank you all for following the various doings of Plunder the Tombs, and I hope you all continue to enjoy what the blog manages to unearth in the coming year.
