Thanks to everyone who LEAPT in for the early bird offer on 'Forest Moon Of Enderby', it's always very much appreciated! We've had a good few radio plays- mostly of "Other Bands' Setlists", the BREAKOUT HIT - but online reviews have so far been a bit sparse. If anyone sees any, do let me know!


Totally Acoustic is now one third of the way through its run and is going GRATE. We've had TONNES of fun as you can hear from the PODCASTS, available HERE:

Episode One features Dr Neil Brown and Gavin Osborn, Episode Two has Winston Echo and Pete Green. Ta to everyone who's subscribed so far, hope you're enjoying it as much as I am making it i.e. LOTS!

All sorts of news here - the tour has BEGUN, the recording sessions have CONTINUED, and there was an EXCLUSIVE play of a couple of tracks on Mr Bob Fischer's BBC Tees show last week. On top of all that myself and Mr J Kell have now pretty much COMPLETED the SCREENPLAY for an ANIMATED version - if anybody out there runs an FILM COMPANY who'd be interested in making it, or indeed knows anybody who might, do let us know won't you?


We're having a Crazy Christmas Clearout in the online store RIGHT NOW - huge swathes of the back catalogue are available for TWO POUND FIFTY or less - INCLUDING postage! Come and have a look at the webpage, HERE, for further details, and give the gift of Validation this year!


Talking of Christmas, would you like to be part of the CHOIR on our new Christmas Song? If so, it's dead easy - all the details are HERE:

Closing date is the 19th Day Of November, happy SINGING!


And on a final Christmas Note, it's once more time to VOTE in the Dandelion Radio Festive 50. All the details are HERE:

Far be it for me to suggest you vote for US, of course, but if you were so minded it is my duty to inform you that songs ELIGIBLE by us this year are:

Forest Moon Of Enderby
Hibbett's Superstore
We Are The Giant Robots (Indietracks compilation)
Arbeit (Maurenbrecher fur alle)
Now I Want To Sniff Some Glue (No More Of Your Fairy Stories)

That's a LOT of songs to choose from, and MORE than enough information for one month - thanks for listening, and see you next time!
