SORRY EVERYBODY !!!!!!...................IT WASN’T US..............HONEST!!!!!
Well they have done it again!!!!!
Our ‘fantastic hosting company’ (??) has managed to fuck up not only Pooterland, but also thousands (yes THOUSANDS)  of other web sites too.
We started experiencing connectivity problems late on Monday and were assured it was ‘only a minor fault’.
Ha Ha, it’s now nearly 24 hours later and several thousand sites are down (including their own!!).
In an alleged 10 million pound Data Centre, they have ‘fallen off’ the Internet backbone, losing four DNS servers, their routers, dial up conectivity, mailservers...yadda yadda yadda, you name it, it’s gone.
So if you tried to log on to your favourite Pooterland we are TRULY SORRY, BUT IT’S OUT OF OUR HANDS.......................

We are proud to announce that we have been awarded "Site of the Week" award at the Guide to Classic Rock.
We have added our ‘award’ to our new Awards page that we decided to put up tonight, seeing as we have won a couple of these things recently.
We also breezed through the 10,000 visitors barrier about a week ago (sorry only just noticed!!).

For those of you that read this page and visit frequently we would like to let you know that pOoTer is going away for a few days so there will not be any updates until the evening of Sunday 20th May. He is however taking his palmtop computer with him and will be taking a  pile of CD’s with him to review (he is getting behind!!!).
All being well and as long as he does not lose the cable for it (like he did last time......), we will be uploading the reviews onto the Pooterland server on this space!!!!

Hey, the reviews are still flooding in, also we would like to announce two exciting entries in our Art section:
Gunther Berkus
Bobby Faust
Both of these guys fall into what we would call High Art, as opposed to Poster Art and this is a direction we will be exploring. Many of you have said “Why do you only do Poster Art?”, well the answer is NOW WE DON’T !!. I hope you like both galleries...............
A big HELLO to all the people who have recently subscribed to our mailing list, if you are not already a member, join up now to be the first to know about updates and other news from pOoTers pSycheDelic shAcK...................
