            This holiday issue positively sparkles with its usual mixture of news and features, some dealing with events occurring since our last issue, others anticipating what is clearly going to be an especially eventful year for Paul and the band in 1993. coming your way in '93, opposite, gives a few hints about some of those activities, including the upcoming world tour. Those readers who are members of the Fun Club can rest assured that when we have definite information about this it will be passed along.
            The release of Paul's new album, Off The Ground, will receive our usual thorough treatment in the Spring issue. In the meantime, you can read something about it in A jule of an ALBUM, in which we meet and greet its co-producer Julian Mendelsohn.
            We throw the spotlight onto Robbie McIntosh, who is profiled by Geoff Baker in A lot of "tosh", and we catch up with the latest news about two blossoming MPL projects - Linda's vegetarian food, and the LIPA school - in they also happened in '92. We're also happy to present an exclusive interview with Linda about her beginnings as a photographer (A SNAP DECISION), which provides some interesting background to her best-selling Sixties book. A BBC TV Arena documentary about Linda's photography has now been completed and will be shown in the UK on Boxing Day.
            After spending so long in the studio, Paul and the band are rapidly increasing their public profile via a number of interesting events. First of all 200 lucky Fun Clubbers were able to win tickets for a video-taping by Carlton TV at the Mean Fiddler club in London on 20 November. (It'll be screened in Britain an hour into 1993, at 1.00am on New Year's Day.)
            The early days of December then saw the band out and about in the USA. They shot a video, Linda's photographic exhibition opened at the Fahey-Klein Gallery in Beverly Hills on 3 December, Linda appeared on Arsenio Hall's late-night TV chat show and the band performed for a second time on MTV's Unplugged, this time in New York.
            We're very proud of the fact that Daumier's Law, the MPL animated film directed by Geoff Dunbar and detailed for you in our summer 1992 issue, captured the top prize - the Espiga De Oro (The Golden Spike) - in the short-film category at the Northern Spain Film Festival on 31 October. Look out for Daumier’s Law in 1993 when it will be seen in UK cinemas supporting Woody Allen's feature Shadows And Fog.
            And we're delighted, too, to applaud our very own Wix who, together with the aforementioned Julian Mendelsohn, co-produced the recent UK number one hit single 'Sleeping Satellite' by Tasmin Archer, her debut release. Wix told us in CS59 that he was branching out into production, and he's certainly begun with a winner!
            Our seasonal spirit reaches back through the years in this issue for MINING THE FILM AND VIDEO archive, in which we look at the making of the 'Wonderful Christmastime' promo. There's certainly no cause for indecision this year about suitable presents for loved ones: you could choose from Linda's Sixties book, its associated 1993 calendar, or perhaps plump for Stan Eales' timely book of environmental cartoons, as featured in AND in the green corner. It only remains for me to say that Paul, Linda and all of us here at the Sandwich send season's greetings to all readers of this historic issue. Have you noticed? Now we're 64!

'til next time
