A LITTLE BIT
We're releasing 'A Little Bit' as a free download single today, along with a rather lovely video made by all the people who replied to our request for a little bit of help last month. You can see the final results HERE:

I think it's rather marvellous - thanks very much to everyone who took part! As ever we'd very much appreciated any plugs, likes, retweets or mentions, and if you'd rather link direct to the video, it's HERE:

DINOSAUR PLANET
The album itself is starting to pick up interest from some exciting places - we were in SFX and Word Magazine this month, popped up in the magazines of The Smithsonian Institute and the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals, got a rave review on Comics Alliance, a big plug on io9.com and, perhaps best of ALL, we've been fully analysed on the TV Tropes website! All of these links can be found on our eminently likeable facebook page, HERE:

And just a reminder that if you'd like to learn to play any of the songs from the album, you can find all of the words and chords in 'How To Play The Dinosaur Way', which is HERE:

TOTALLY ACOUSTIC
We've got another FAB show coming up at The King & Queen on Thursday the 8th with Rebekah Delgado and Peter Buckley Hill, and you can hear LAST month's delightful evening, featuring Jimmy from The Bobby McGees and Jim'll's Brain, in the podcast HERE:

IN OTHER NEWS
Last week I did a stand-up set at the fantastic Bright Club in London. If you want to hear the full story of how I didn't write my autobiography you can find it HERE:

Neil Jenkins' show on Dandelion Radio will be featuring 'Dinosaur Planet' this month, and I've also recorded a special session for The Garden Of Earthly Delights radio show, which will be broadcast on March 30th. Full details HERE:

And finally - many thanks to everyone who made the final furlong of Moon Horse shows so much fun. He may be stabled for the moment, but Moon Horse will be returning in podcast form in the near future!

And I think that's MORE than enough excitement for one month - thanks for listening, and see you next time!

Cheers,

Mark
