After a long, argues journey through building a studio in her house and recording the whole album within that study, Ellipse is finally ready and being released on August 24th in the UK and August 25th in North America.

Imogen’s new album is a thirteen track homage to her family home which she is now inhabiting again. Every track on the album was recorded in the house and has elements of the houses noises added in to it. It’s an interesting concept and we’re eager to hear how it pans out.

A Dream

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on April 13, 2009 by Em Wyllie


I had a dream last night that sort of put me off center. I wasn’t too pleased to wake up in that, sadly, familiar cold sweat, feeling like someone I cared about had just died. The thing I don’t understand is why the dream upset me so much. Well, that’s kind of a lie… I have an idea.

Hiatus Explanation

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on January 18, 2009 by Em Wyllie

I know. It’s been near two months. The hiatus has come from a couple of different places. I’ve been working on some side projects and have recently come in to a new job as well.

First of all – We’re getting our own domain soon. Right now I’m just trying to get a handle on CSS or find someone who has a good handle on it. If you feel like you want to help, email me!! EmWyllie@gmail.com (payment might be applicable depending on the situation)

Secondly – I’ve been working a new full time management job that is taking up 40+ hours of my week.

Thirdly – Matt Wyllie has a website now! http://www.mattwyllie.com is now up and running.

I’ll try to post more often and will let you guys know when the official new URL goes live.

RoadRunner Records — Shame On You

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on November 24, 2008 by Em Wyllie

Amanda Palmer Belly


Recently, Amanda Palmer released the video for her song Leeds United. However, RoadRunner Records requested that she recut the video to include less shots of her ‘belly.’ 

Now, looking at the shot above, that had no retouching done to it, I think Amanda looks fucking amazing. She looks like a woman should. Apparently RoadRunner believes she’s far too fat to be showing off her stomach. 

However RoadRunner Records has no problems showing promo shots of Nightwish on their site with Tuomas Holopainen showing off his belly. Tuomas isn’t fat by any means, either, but I’d say his belly is around the same size as Amanda’s. But because he’s a metal head and a male, he could splay himself naked and RoadRunner would have no problems. But amanda dares to show off her stomach and they throw a bitch fit. 

This needs to be dealt with immediately. Here is RoadRunner’s contact information. PLEASE Email them a photo of your stomach, with whatever you’d like written on, or bare, and let them know that Bellies of ALL Shapes and sizes are appreciated and loved!

Update: A member of The Shadowbox has put together this wonderful little letter detailing everything. Please read and send something along to RoadRunner or to Jordan!

Amanda Palmer, of the Dresden Dolls, has recently gone solo. The record company she is signed to, Roadrunner Records, has given her hell over finances, record sales, and now this…

Amanda has recently released her new music video for the song “Leeds United”.


Roadrunner Records responded by telling her to she was fat, and to recut the video to show less of her belly.
Amanda blogged about it here:


Since the release, Amanda Palmer fans have been posting tons of responses in the online Dresden Dolls/Amanda Palmer forum here:


They have begun posting pictures of their bellies in protest and support of Amanda, and sending their pictures to the email address of Jordan (doritojoe89@gmail.com) to make a collection to print and send to the Roadrunner Records HQ, and so far over 100 photos have been collected.

This isn’t just about Amanda Palmer’s belly. This is about all the bellies of the world: Big, small, hairy, stretch-marked, scarred, pregnant, every single belly. The aim is to reclaim the belly; To promote a healthy body image for everyone (not even just females) and to bring an end, or at least a tapering, to the “barbie dolling” of images that record companies and the media as a whole do to artists.

So JOIN THE REBELLYON. Take a picture of your beautiful belly, send it to Jordan (doritojoe89@gmail.com), make it your default myspace/facebook picture, do anything to promote the cause. Help spread a healthy body image for everyone. Just do it.

And flip through this thread to see some more bellies. It’s worth it.
