Pocket Venus have parted company with guitarist Steve Jones after he failed to commit himself to the band, leaving a string of dates cancelled & the release of forthcoming single Tell Me Why postponed until 10.02.02. Steve left at the end of October & has been quickly replaced by Gwacamoli guitarist Dyfed Roberts, who has been busily rehearsing with PV. The news was announced amid a buzz of Message Board activity over whether the band had split up.

A full tour is being planned to coincide with the new release date & the band will be playing their first date with Dyfed at the Barfly in Cardiff with Tetra Splendour.
