PBH ALBUM
The PBH Free Fringe Benefit album is officially released tomorrow, but you lovely people can get it right NOW, right HERE:
http://pbhfreefringebenefitalbum.bandcamp.com/

It feaures a whopping THIRTY SIX new/unreleased/rare tracks from people such as Chris T-T, Frankie Machine, Helen Arney, The Bobby McGees, The Weisstronauts, John Otway, The Just Joans, Lardpony, Being 747, Standard Fare and LOADS more. It's a bargain at just a fiver and it's all in aid of the PBH Free Fringe, but it's only available for the next six weeks, so get in QUICK!

TOTAL HERO TEAM
The "Total Hero Team" summer tour is very much falling into place, including an exciting appearance at the Now We Are Weekender in West Brom at the end of May. There's LOADS of excellent bands, including Allo Darlin', August Actually, Milky Wimpshake, Darren Hayman and indeed The Validators! If you fancy coming you can get CHEAP Early Bird tickets HERE - but be quick, they go off sale tomorrow!

THE PLIMPTONS ARE DEAD
Long term ROCK PALS The Plimptons are calling it a day, and are marking the occasion with a final EP, "The Plimptons Are Dead", featuring a guest appearance by ME on their cover version of "We Did It Anyway". I heartily endorse a purchase, it is ACE!

A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME TRAVEL
The Validators were back in the rehearsal room last week to LEARN UP our theme tune to the forthcoming podcast sitcom series "A Brief History Of Time Travel". Recording sessions commence in a couple of weeks, and we hope to have it available for your ears around August!

AND FINALLY
The always marvellous Chris T-T has just released a LIVE album, "Good Songs In Small Rooms", parts of which were recorded at Totally Acoustic, and indeed features a bit of ME, BANGING ON. It's like some beautiful Greatest Hits, and you get can it HERE:

And finally, my attention has been drawn to a rather ace podcast run by a mailing list member, featuring a bit of me, and called "Trust The Wizards" - it's right HERE:

And I think that's about enough excitement for now - thanks for listening, and see you next time!

Cheers,

Mark
