what a bunch of blahblah, i´d like to know what the reasons for the 
cancelling really were, finacial? organisatorial? ...??? instead of 
weak and arrogant comments like "circumstances too numerous to list 
them up" well and you  are not worth it to be told the truth about why 
re-tg can´t happen.... and not not even the artists to whom they claim 
it is written to....

it was forementioned, this is a BIIIIIIIGG BIIIIIIG disappointment. i 
can only agree on this.

>> Dear All,
>>  As you may remember after the postponement of the RE~TG event
>> earlier in this year, promoters Foundation were looking forward to
>> promoting an "All Tomorrow Parties "currated by Thobbing Gristle
>> (ATP- TG) event in May 2005.
>>  After a lengthy struggle to realise " ATP-TG" , ATP, as the
>> promoters, have decided the event can not be realised in the
>> forseeable future.
>>  All the members of Throbbing Gristle & myself & ATP are extremely
>> disappointed, having put a considerable & repeated effort  ( & a free
>> show in London) into trying to realise the event, but sadly this is
>> not to be.
>>  Circumstances to numerous to list here have conspired to make our
>> original plans for such an event unattainable, & the decision by ATP
>> was not taken lightly & not without considerable financial losses on
>> their part.
>>  The majority of you who will receive this email are the original
>> artists whom were invited to play "RE~TG" & therefore were
>> subsequently expecting to perform at "ATP-TG".
>>  Our sincere & heartfelt apologies to you all for this disapointment
>> & again our thanks for your open hearted support for the original
>> event's ideologies & expectations.
>>  Certainly the one area that has encouraged us to continue to
>> struggle with making this event happen has been the support &
>> understanding from the other artistes involved.
>>  Throbbing Gristle will now play on Friday 3rd December 2005 at
>> Camber Sands as part of the ATP/Foundation promoted weekend event
>> (Dec 3/4/5)  "A Nightmare Before Christmas" currated by visual
>> artistes Jake & Dinos Chapman.
>>  Foundation are announcing the initial line-up for "Nightmare Before
>> Christmas" any day now
>>  (see www.alltomorrowsparties.co.uk).
>>  It is not envisaged that many, if indeed any, of our original list
>> of artistes will be part of this new event, since Jake & Dinos
>> Chapman's curation will naturally be based on their own personal
>> choice
>>  Regrets & Regards
>>  Paul Smith
>>  for Throbbing Gristle
>>  Cosey Fanni Tutti
>>  Genesis P. Orridge
>>  Peter Christopherson
