[ Released on Analog Baroque Records - ANALOG 002 CD - August 1999 ]
MOMUS SAYS: Stars Forever was the only way Momus and Le Grand Magistery could think of to pay some hefty legal bills run up by a spot of gladatorial skirmishing in the law courts of New York in 1998. The cause of the trouble? An unauthorised (now deleted) tribute song on his last album, The Little Red Songbook. The Stars Forever project was launched on January 1st 1999 with an appeal for sitters and patrons. Within two weeks, thirty people had pledged to send a thousand dollars to have a Momus song written about them. This, then, will be patronage pop.
