There’s no blood on my handkerchief, just three swell autographs…

Penned upon the 7th of June, 2007

Winter is truly here, and my constitution being an artistic and sensitive one, I feel the cold most bitterly in my lungs. I apologise for the parcity of fresh intellectual content; rest assured that my readers have been foremost in my thoughts and I fully intend to reward your patience as best I can. In the meantime, if you’re feeling the chill as I am, or if you simply enjoy the well-macassarred music of the Three Swell Chaps, perhaps one of these new Tour Tea Shirts might interest you? Or perhaps you could shock respectable society with a bag for your Symbolist literature?

Three Swell Chaps Black Lady's Band Tea Shirt!
Three Swell Chaps White Fellow's Band Tea Shirt!
Shock the Middle Classes Book Bag!
