If you've not got around to getting the album yet it is, of course, still VERY much available from the website, along with t-shirts, combo deals, free downloads and all sorts, right HERE:

Thanks VERY much to everyone who's bought it so far, and especially to those who answered my request for PLUGS, I have been rather MOVED by it all. Any further mentions or plugs are VERY much appreciated - we've not had THAT many reviews yet, so getting the word around is PARAMOUNT! The reviews we HAVE had, however, have been LOVELY, and I'm storing them all on our eminently LIKEable facebook page, HERE:

We're planning to release 'A Little Bit' as our next single, and would like A Little Bit of help making the video, please. If you fancy recording yourself singing part of the song (and maybe acting out a line too) then please go HERE for further details:

And talking of videos, I'd really like to spread the video for 'Literature Search' around a bit more, especially to librarians and organisations promoting good research methodology. If anybody's got any ideas about where to send it do please let me know!

Moon Horse canters into its last furlong this month, as Steve and I take the show to Sheffield and Leicester before crossing the finishing line in Nottingham. But fear not, ACTION FANS, plans are a-hoof to have Moon Horse return later in the year in a podcast serial!

We've got a bit of a Jim Jam coming up next Thursday at The King & Queen in London, with Jimmy from The Bobby McGees and Jim'll's Brain, and we had a TERRIFIC evening a few weeks ago when Model Village and Elizabeth from Allo Darlin' came and played. You can hear the podcast of that and ALL our recent shows, HERE:

The version of 'Billy Jones Is Dead' I performed with A Little Orchestra at Totally Acoustic last year appears on a new CD called "No Sleep Till Torcross". It also features Mr Phil Wilson and Mr Mattew Stead from A Fine Day For Sailing, amongst many others, and is available HERE:

And finally - we have a film star in our midst! The crowd-sourced version of 'Star Wars' has finally been released and you can see our very own Mr Tim Pattison (accompanied by Miss Edie and Miss Lola Pattison) playing HAN SOLO in his first appearance, at about 46 minutes in!

And I think that's MORE than enough excitement for one month - thanks for listening, and see you next time!
