There's just TWO WEEKS left to buy The PBH Free Fringe Benefit album before it disappears FOREVER! It's got brand new songs from ME (and Steve), Chris T-T, Frankie Machine, Helen Arney, Lardpony, The Bobby McGees, rare/unreleased versions of tracks by John Otway, The Just Joans, Standard Fare and LOADS more. It's a bargain at just a fiver, it's all in aid of the Free Fringe, and you can get it right HERE until April 14th:

We're now pretty much BOOKED for this year's Edinburgh Fringe, and if all goes to plan we'll be at the Wilkie House Upstairs (formerly GRV) at 6pm every day August 3rd-17th as part of the PBH Free Fringe. We'll hopefully be at the Camden Fringe shortly afterwards and we've got several shows around the country being booked in the run up. Do come along if you can - full details are HERE:

I'm HONOURED to have a chapter in a marvellous book called "The 360 Deal", which has nuggets of advice about being in a DIY band from LOADS of exciting and interesting people. It's only $3.60 and all the proceeds go to a charity bringing music workshops to children affected by extreme poverty. Full details HERE:

The Validators were in the studio this month recording the basic tracks for the THEME TUNE to this show, as well as some Instrumental Interludes. I've done my vocals (also electrical guitar, swannee whistle, keyboards) and now we just need to add Emma's vocals, some Additional Fairy Dust, and MIX it. It's sounding ACE so far - should be out as a download single in August!

AND FINALLY I received a rather marvellous file from Mr J Walsh this week he'd dug out his copy of "How To Play The Dinosaur Way" ( and recorded his own version of "Theme From Dinosaur Planet". You can hear it here - and if anybody else would like to have a go at something similar I would be DELIGHTED to hear it!

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