VIDEO

I've finally finished the documentary - "rockumentary", if you will - about me, Tim and Frankie's trip to Germany with Mr
Martin Petersdorf. It's up on YouTube right now, in three parts:

Part one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKd8Q0iGTVI
Part two: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RD3Wg3xvImk
Part three: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvqRWaaXz4E

As you can probably tell, we had a GRATE time!


DINOSAUR PLANET

Work continues on the concept album - in a couple of weeks we hope to have all guitar and lead vocals done, as well as some of the STRINGS, ready to get rough mixes done for Emma to sing along to. Then it will be time to start thinking about recording the Voice Cast!

Meanwhile Mr S Hewitt and I have pretty much nailed down the script for our two man version, which we'll be doing in Edinburgh this year. More news on THAT next month, once we start rehearsing!

OTHER THINGS

We had a fantastic time at The Leicester Comedy Festival again this year - thanks VERY much to everybody who came, we SOLD OUT on the second night, it was TERRIBLY exciting! Thanks also to everyone who came to the first Totally Acoustic of the year, with Chris from The Platers and Matt from The Grave Architects, both of whom were GRATE.

It looks like being a summer of Compilation Appearances - by my reckoning there's at least SIX albums coming out that feature us, mostly doing cover versions but with some original material too. Some of those were going to come out LAST summer though, so don't be appalled if they don't all appear!

And finally - we're just hearing about this bloody stupid plan to close down 6Music. If anybody's organising a rampage through the streets do let me know, won't you? In the meantime:

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

Cheers,

Mark
