Asperger Syndrome star makes return

The Vines went back in the studio yesterday to start work on their third album.
Wayne Connolly (You Am I) has been recruited as producer and has started recording and mixing demos for the next album.
The Vines have 13 new songs ready to demo.
This is the first time the band has regrouped since the disastrous Annandale pub gig in Sydney in May 2004. Bass player Patrick Matthews stormed off stage during the performance and singer Craig Nichols started abusing the crowd.
The Vines have not performed since.
In November 2004, The Vines management issued a statement admitting Nichols was suffering from Asperger's Syndrome, a neurobiological disorder which is a mild form of autism.
In a new statement, management says "The band are genuinely excited about being back together in the studio and can't wait to see what comes out. Thanks so much to each every Vines fan who has been patient and understanding above and beyond the call of duty".
