(MJ Hibbett & The Validators FACT, July 31st 2012)

DON'T, DARREN, DON'T
We're very proud to announce the release of our latest (and possibly LAST) free download single from "Dinosaur Planet" - "Don't, Darren, Don't". It comes with a GORGEOUS video featuring artwork from the ever marvellous Mr John Allison, both of which can be found HERE:

DINOSAUR PLANET - LIVE!
Also in "Dinosaur Planet" news, Steve and I are going to be performing the original two-man version of the show at the Camden Fringe and Green Man Festival (see above for ticket details). Do come along to one of these if you can - certain members of the duo had an audience of 80,000 people at their last gig and I'd like to minimise the shock of coming back down to my level!

TOTALLY ACOUSTIC
The first of two end of season SPECIALS is available for listening right NOW! It features previously unheard tracks from the first half of this series, including performances by A Fine Day For Sailing, John Otway, Model Village, Elizabeth Morris and TONS more. It's ACE!

2000AD NAN
Those nice people at Keep Pop Loud have not only named "Dinosaur Planet" as THE BEST album of 2012 so far (and who could disagree?) but ALSO put their compilation album online, featuring my track "2000AD Nan". I really like this song, so am very happy that more people can hear it - you can stream it right HERE:

IN OTHER NEWS
It's come to my attention that some people didn't realise that we have "Dinosaur Planet" t-shirts for sale. We totally do! They're available in all adult sizes (though there's only one SMALL one left) and there are TOP BARGAINS for combo packs with the album in the online shop. You can see a gallery of them in action, including some of the customers for our temporary children's range, HERE:

And finally, we may not be at the Edinburgh Fringe this year, but I'm currently working on the first draft of NEXT year's show, tentatively titled "Total Hero Team". It's going to feature SUPERHEROES!

And I think that's enough excitement for now - thanks for listening, and see you next time!
Cheers,

Mark
