TOTAL HERO TEAM
As you can see from the gigs list, we're kicking off the year with a whole BUNCH of previews of our new two-man musical "Total Hero Team". It's about Superheroes! We're planning more gigs around the country over the course of the year, leading up to another couple of weeks at the Edinburgh Fringe, so if you'd like to book us do get in touch! http://www.totalheroteam.co.uk

DINOSAUR PLANET SALE
The Dinosaur Planet half-price sale is on for two more days, closing on December 31st, so get in quick if you'd like some low-price concept album GOOD TIMES! Be especially quick for t-shirts - we've now sold out of the smaller sizes and there's not many left of the larger ones either!

THE FLASHING SANTA
If you'd like an extra blast of festivity you can stream our ongoing Christmas Album, "Christmas Selection Box" on bandcamp. It features TWO new songs this year - my version of "We Three Kings" (as traditionally sung at my old junior school) and a brand new Validators composition, "The Flashing Santa", right HERE:

FUTURE VALIDATION
Talking of The Validators - during our recent trip to Berlin we came up with an Exciting New Plan for recordings, which basically involves DOING some! We're hoping to at least get enough material together for a new EP this year - stay tuned for further details!

AND FINALLY
"Dinosaur Planet" DID make it into a couple of Best Of 2012 lists in the end - I'm sure the confusion over the delayed release date (i.e. originally it was meant to come out at the end of 2011, but then CD MANUFACTURE DOOM occurred... twice) is the only reason it wasn't in ALL of them! Here's a couple of lists we liked very much:

(and Keep Pop Loud have a free download EP featuring "The Battle Of Peterborough HERE:

And finally, to end the year, it would be remiss of me not to wish everybody a very happy 29th Day of December!

I think that's enough excitement for one year - thanks for listening, and see you in 2013!

Cheers,

Mark
