    Thanks Jyoti – only problem is I can’t get that one to work, although all the rest of them do? Nice vids for the new songs though…

    Hey Jyoti. Probably like many, I’ve never really known much about you other than that I love “Your Woman”. I’ve just read through your biography and FAQs, and was thrilled to discover that it all kind of happened like I imagined it might have. Your story is half of what makes the hit so special I think. Anyway, I’m glad you’re continuing to do what you love without the restrictions and rubbish that seem to go along with being involved with mainstream record labels. Good for you 🙂 Vicky

    Mr Mishra,
    I would like to let you know that you are my idol. As everyone here, I love your song entitled “Your Woman”. I listen to it almost every day, I play it on the piano, I look for covers and I even keep writing a blog about it. And my friends are like “OH MY GOSH switch that song off!”, but I can’t. I wish you came to Poland to sing in a concert. If I may, I would like to ask you some questions about “Your Woman” which unfortunately aren’t included in the frequently asked questions. The first one is: what happened next to the speaker in the song? I keep wondering if he (or she) is now happy with someone else or if they are still suffering, stuck in those lines forever. Or maybe you have another ending in mind. “Your Woman” is for me like a story and I would really like to know more about the future of the character. The second question is: I’ve read the possible meanings of the song, but since I’m no good in history, I cannot figure out what’s going on with the marxist meaning of the song. Is it something about political ideas in love? Is there any book or essay that I could read to understand better what you had on your mind?
    By the way, I saw the video from Indietracks. It was so great when all those people started singing with you! I wish I was among them. Greetings!

    I find “A Week Next June” captivating but can’t figure out the chords. Would you share them? I’d really like to play the song on my guitar.

    Nice one for getting mentioned on Guardian today. Remember reading a very inspirational and confirming interview with you in SOS many moons ago. And getting a number 1!!! Go there. Still on the stereo today in Croydon

    I loved this song back in 1997, and I think it has held up incredibly well.

    You must have gotten sick of the Star Wars questions.

    Hey I just wanted to let you know that I really dig your music!

    Found you through “Your Woman”, but stayed listening to all albums.

    Rock on

    Hi Jyoti

    Just wanted to say that I was big into underground Indie-Pop (whatever you want to call it) back in the day. I think I first head about you when someone sung your praises on the back page of a fanzine / catalogue. (Might have Steve Biscuit in his Biscuit Distribution catalogue – can’t be sure, memory not good as it should be!) Being of South Asian origin myself your name immediately caught my interest. To be honest, it was a bit reassuring knowing at least there was at least one other brown people involved in the scene! Lo and behold a few years later you became the international pop phenomena you are today!

    Anyway just wanted to say I’m very happy you’re still at it and I love the music. In fact having lost a bit of interest in music generally over the years I’m now finding myself checking out new and old guitar pop music on Spotify and whatnot. In fact having also my lefty / progressive political flame reignited I now seem to be regressing back to my youth! (As I typed that the crowd at Glasto watching Radiohead started chanting ‘Ohh Jeremy Corbyn – funny eh?)

    Do you know whether you were recommended by Biscuit Distribution or am I getting confused with another fanzine / publication? It’s bugging me now!

    hey man, just wanted to say that women in technology is superb! i only listened to it for the first time today but it’s consistently good and had me feeling rather emotional at points (especially the first half imo). i expect quite a few repeats, it’s been a while since i’ve enjoyed an album as much as this one.
    anyway, i’ll look further into your discography; i’m probably going to listen to peek & poke next. kudos!
