In other news from Marc: he has just returned from Russia where he has recorded four new tracks for a special Russia only release of «Heart On Snow».
Marc returns to hospital on Saturday to have what is hoped will be the final operation on his shoulder. This will hopefully allow more movement of his right arm which is currently very restricted. The plans for a concert in the Spring appear to have been a bit optimistic and he won't be able to return to performing until a later date. There are no plans at present as it is not known how long it will take for Marc to recover enough to be able to undertake live performing.

Singer Marc Almond has performed on stage for the very first time since he was critically injured in a motorcycle accident in October 2004. The results of the crash were more than devastating, the singer fractured his skull in two places, shattered his right shoulder, perforated his eardrum and suffered a collapsed lung. He also suffered two massive blood clots which caused his head to swell and had to undergo emergency surgery twice. After 3 months already Almond, who celebrated his 25 years in music business last year, made his live comeback at Vienna's «Life Ball» at the weekend. In an interview with the BBC he admits he is still not fully fit. The Soft Cell frontman is still recovering from his injuries after the crash that left him unconscious for 10 days. The singer will have a further operation this month and he still doesn't have full use of his right arm. Almond, 48, also added that chances are that a select number of Soft Cell shows may take place later in the year. The band apparently also plans to enter the studio again. First off is the release of a solo live DVD entitled «Sin Songs, Torch And Romance», a live performance recorded last year.
