The official web site for Swervie Adam Franklin’s new solo album Toshack Highway is live, albeit in a constant state of development. Though riddled with “Coming Soon” messages, it looks like it will soon be chock-full-o-goodies for the TH/SWD fan, complete with lyrics, sound & video, a guest book, and tour info. Keep checking back and see it come to life before your eyes! (Note: I had nothing to do with this, so don’t go flaming me for registering Adam’s domain name!!!)
