This month has been a bit taken over with My Exciting Life In ROCK, with THREE shows - first of all the dress rehearsal at The Lamb, then a Press Preview at The Cross Kings and finally the full band performance on the Friday night at Indietracks. They were all BRILLIANT fun, and thanks VERY much to everyone who came, especially those who came to more than one and earned themselves a Special Badge!

I also did some BITS of the show in Sheffield, kicking off an amazing night of The Pete Green Corporate Juggernaut, The School and Slow Down Tallahassee, and some more in Marylebone with the fantastic Superman Revenge Squad. The final gig of the month so far was in my Mum's back garden, where I was amazed to find that not everybody over 50 knows the words to "Besame Mucho"!


"It Only Works Because You're Here" is out NOW, and very much available to buy, either from us, Thee SPC, Amazon, iTunes, and a Wide Variety Of Other Stockists. Details of many of them can be found here:

The video is also online, HERE:

Links to the video are, as ever, VERY much appreciated, and if you've not got a copy of the single yet I'd HEARTILY recommend it - three brand new tracks and a mini-GRATEST HITS, how can you go wrong?


It's been a super glitzy showbiz month for me this month - I've been to several GRATE gigs (Lazarus Clamp and The Gresham Flyers, as well as that MEGA line-up in Sheffield), a book launch ("Wiffle Lever To Full" - ACE), a preview screening ("No Heroics" - REALLY good), and had a go at ANOTHER song for a telephone advert... which once again didn't make it, but still. Truly, i have been MR SHOWBIZ! Hopefully that'll stand me in good stead for the week of Showbiz Parties, Champagne, and hanging out in the Cocktail Bar with Eddie Izzard and The Mary Whitehouse Experience - that IS what Edinburgh will be like, right?

We'll find out soon enough - thanks for listening, and see you next month!
