This is taking sooooo long... A month ago I got all excited and mailed my freshly executed contracts to California for the good ol' iTunes sign off. I know they got there, Australia Post told me so [before you express shock, note that I paid them $38 for the priviledge].
I'm now told that it will take "significantly longer than 2 weeks" for the admin on their side. I can only say thank you to the people who are still showing interest - it will get done...
Anyway, in the meantime I've been listening to a lot of great music... I recommend checking out the new[ish] stuff from Dead Letter Circus, Daysend and Mammal... and hopefully I'll have some good news soon.
