DINOSAUR PLANET: THE ALBUM
All The Validators were in the studio over Christmas doing some extra overdubs for the album, as you can see from this video: http://youtu.be/LUHQKz0TkC8

This month Tom's doing some tweaks, I'm in for some rough mixes and some more work on the dialogue sections, then it should be full steam ahead for PENULTIMIXING when The Pattisons get back to the UK in April. We've also acquired the services of one of my FAVOURITE ARTISTS to do the cover too, it's VERY exciting!


TOTALLY ACOUSTIC
The grand season finale, featuring extra material from ALL the acts featured this season is online NOW, HERE: http://www.mjhibbett.co.uk/totallyacoustic/podcast.php?podcastcode=8

It's rather bloody marvellous, do have a listen if you can!


LEARN TO PLAY (UKELELE) THE HIBBETT WAY
When I released "A Million Ukeleles" a few years ago it came with a booklet containing words and chords to all the songs and a guide to how to play them on the ukelele. A few people have asked about it recently, so I've made it a PDF and put it online, here:

Now you too can play like me! Imagine that!


FEBRUARY ALBUM WRITING MONTH
I'm going to be taking part in February Album Writing Month again this year - last time this resulted in the album "All Around My House", and I might well do something similar this time. You can follow my progress on the blog or at the main FAWM site HERE: http://fawm.org/fawmers/mjhibbett/


IN OTHER NEWS
I'll be appearing at the Geek Pop Virtual Festival next month, doing three songs and a DUET with Vom Vorton. I'll have three songs up to download from their site, which I'm working on at the moment, and there's LOADS of GRATE people involved, have a look - http://geekpop.podbean.com/

Our next Edinburgh Show, "Moon Horse" is WRITTEN and as soon as we finish off "Dinosaur Planet" we shall be LEARNING it. It features some ACE songs, also DANCING!

And finally, I would like to present what I think may be my Lasting Contribution To Rock Music: The Pub Quiz Paradigm. It's something I came up with after a slightly disturbed gig in Lewisham this month, which once and for all settles ALL arguments about When/How/Whether It's OK To Talk At Gigs.

And I reckon that's MORE than enough for this month - thanks for listening, see you next time!


Cheers,

Mark
