~:there ? any WWW site of newsgroups ? any news from the band ?
I cannot find the info on web stuff.
Here is the scoop about the mailing list:
This unmoderated list is intended for the discussion of any issues having
to do with the indefinitely hibernating band known as the Chameleons.
List members are invited to discuss anything remotely Chameleons-related.
Facts, opinions, shameless worship, it's all welcome.
Anonymous FTP access for the Chameleons mailing list is maintained on
paradiso.umuc.edu [184.108.40.206]. Files available include a complete
discography, lyric sheets, and archives of previous list postings.
If you have any questions about the list or the FTP archives you can send
them to the list manager, John Caruso (car...@paradiso.umuc.edu).
Further administrative requests regarding this list should be sent to:

OK, let's try that again.
I for one (or should I make that two?) am a genuine Chameleons fan (as
well as a JD/NO fan, of course), and I am glad to inform you that there is
both a WWW-site and a highly active newsgroup devoted to those other
The newsgroup is nothing like this alt.music.whatever thing: you subscribe
to the mailing list and then you receive all the postings to the list
through e-mail. All you have to do to get subscribed is send a message
with nothing but "subscribe" in the body of the message to
"chameleon...@paradiso.umuc.edu", and a wonderful new world will
open up for you: you learn about the history of the band, about the newest
releases, info about the tours Mark Burgess is still undertaking (with
Yves Altana, nowadays), etc. etc.
There is also an ftp-site where you can find the archives: just type
paradiso.umuc.edu, and the rest is pretty obvious.
Lastly, there is also a www-site, devoted to the band as well as its
various offshoots (sun & the moon, reegs, mark burgess et al.). I don't

versions of high as you can go and another one which escapes me at the
