This rumour is rather substantiated by a television appearance by Ure
some weeks ago in which (to paraphrase rather approximately) he
stated: that he had finished recording his new *solo* (not Ultravox)
album; that this was considerably "deeper" than his previous work (I
dunno, don't ask me what he meant); and that he had been working with
people he hadn't had the chance to before, such as Kate Bush
(presumably he wasn't counting the above capacity).

At the risk of prolonging Kate monotheists' agony, is anyone familiar
with a Midge Ure/I-can't-remember-who collaboration, _The_Bloodied_Sword_?
It gets mercilessly hyped in a Chrysalis catalogue as "a highly acclaimed
fantasy concept album", but I've never seen (much less heard) it.
