TOTALLY ACOUSTIC
The current series of Totally Acoustic finishes this month with a Christmas Special featuring Frankie Machine and Chris T-T, but we'll be back next year for another series of ROCK DELIGHT. In the meantime you can find all the past podcasts, including our most recent with Pete Green and Martin Austwick, right HERE:

CHRISTMAS SINGLE
Mine and The Validators' new Christmas song "Easy Christmas" will be available via our bandcamp page on December 8th and I'll be adding it to the "Christmas Selection Box" album the same day. There'll be a VIDEO too - full details to follow in a big mailout on the 8th!

VALIDATORS ALBUM
We recorded "Easy Christmas" last weekend at Snug in Derby, along with the start of a whole new ALBUM - we've got about seven new songs done so far, and it's sounding GRATE!

HEY HEY 16K
Steve and I are up to our necks in rehearsals for our new Fringe show "Hey Hey 16K". We're hoping to do a full three week run in Edinburgh next year and have applied to The Free Fringe to do so, but before that we're doing two nights at the Leicester Comedy Festival. You can find tickets HERE:

AND FINALLY
"Make a Mixtape" is a lovely new fanzine which asks people in bands to, basically, do them a mixtape. The first issue features ME along with all sorts of fabulous indie types, and you can read all about it HERE:

I wrote a song ages ago about how we need to save the Red Squirrel, for possible use in a documentary. I don't think I got into the film, but I did get onto their webpage, HERE:

And I think that's more than enough for now - thanks for listening!


Cheers,

Mark
