A really quick update as we've been silent for ages...
 After three years, it appears we have finally tracked all the music rights owners and bashed out the basics
 of deals with most of them; this has been a significant hold up in the 
release and is often the case for many music docs. KJ do control a fair 
bit of the catalogue, but not all of it, there's various bits in there 
from other artists too. 
The film has been screening to various distributors and other buyers 
internationally quite a bit over recent weeks, we have the basics of a 
cinema release (predominantly UK), DVD release and TV/VOD screenings 
longer term worked out but are working on territories where releases 
aren't currently in place. There's lots of interest in the film, though 
everyone's struggling to comprehend how large the KJ audience is; if you
 get a sec give us a hand and let fellow Gatherers know about the film 
by shooting out an invite to this page, it all helps marketing minded 
people get an understanding for things.
 It is extremely likely 
that pre-orders will be available for DVDs and/or blu-rays very very 
very soon, we're working out a nice package with lots of extra footage 
 By no means finalised, but pencilled in, we're looking 
towards cinema in autumn/winter this year and DVD over winter, more 
details as they become set in stone. We'll get as many cinema screenings
 in as we can as the experience takes it all up a notch with big screen 
and big sound.
 Apologies for the quiet and the endless maybes; 
we've joined a club of music docs that were tricky to make and 
considerably harder to get properly released, but it feels like we're 
almost there at last. In the interim Shaun has been endlessly refining 
the sound mix and edit, which is something you don't usually get the 
opportunity to do, it's looking and sounding great.
 Keep with us dear friends, we're nearly there...
