Our new CD "Trouble With Machines" is in the mixing stages, and Mr. John Wetton seems pretty excited about it! Here's what he had to say on his website about his contribution to it: Fans of this ' ere website, Chicago's District 97, and prog music in general will be delighted to hear D97's new album is at mixing stage---I just received a first mix from Jonathan this morning. My tenor is a foil to Leslie's innocent in TPYM, a prog/opera extravaganza. I turn out to be an utter cad---far from the perfect young man (the Brit cast as villain again?), I am ghastly.

Our donation program (wherein you get your name in the liner notes of the new CD and other cool gifts), will be wrapping up once we finish the new CD, so act soon if you'd like to partake in that. Thanks to all who have thus far, you've been a HUGE help! Here's a video from that performance:
