THE CHRISTMAS PARTY
"The Christmas Party" is a MARVELLOUS new seven-part web series which kicks off tomorrow - I've written one episode, appear in TWO, and it's ALL of it is GRATE! It launches at 9am tomorrow on our YouTube channel (which currently has "Making Of" videos), and you can follow us on twitter and/or Facebook for all the details. Please do, it's dead Christmassy!

CHRISTMAS ALBUMS
Our song "Thank Goodness For Christmas" is appearing on this year's edition of Cherryade Music's long-running "A Very Cherry Christmas" series of albums. It'll be available here, hopefully from Monday:

Meanwhile we didn't have time to do a new Christmas song this year, but all of our old ones are still VERY MUCH available, many with videos, right HERE:

A SONG IS FOR LIFE
Although the Validators didn't get round to recording a Christmas song, Geoffrey And The Livingstones (good name) HAVE done one, and have invited a whole host of GUESTS to sing a line each, including ME! This'll also be out on Monday, and you should be able to find it HERE:

TOTAL HERO TEAM
Total Hero Team will be back in the new year with a series of specially recorded Audio Podcasts. We've also got a last run of shows booked in Glasgow, Sheffield, and at the Leicester Comedy Festival. We'd like to do a London finale too, and any good ideas for where we could do it would be very gratefully received!

AND FINALLY
As you may have seen on the blog, this month I went to my first band practice with The Validators for AGES. We worked on THREE new songs (all HITS!), and though I can't promise a new album in 2014, we will hopefully have SOMETHING new for you to listen to!


And I think that's more than enough PRE-YULE COOL for now - thanks for listening!

Cheers,

Mark
