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!!!)

The scheduled release date for Adam Franklin’s solo album “Toshack Highway” is March 21, 2000. The album is to be released in the U.S. on Catapult Records and in the U.K. on Flower Shop Recordings. Flower Shop has released Swervedriver material in the past in the form of a 7″ single featuring My Zephyr/Mars. As a band, Swervedriver still remain without a label. Hopefully this will change soon.
