We've been collecting some great reviews for our latest album 'Facebook Friend'... here are some quotes from the folk press:


"classy, imaginative and engaging" (Folkwords album of the month)
"Facebook Friend is really quite superb" (R2)
"it was like playing one of my favourite LPs." (Unicorn)
"This is arguably their best yet." (Tykes News)
"You will be hard pressed not to find something to like." (Liverpool Acoustic)
"this is a classy, sophisticated album" (Shire Folk)
"An accomplished thinking-persons package from its Magritte homage sleeve to the glorious contents" (Folk NorthWest)

You can now buy 'Facebook Friend' from our online shop.

Another seriously nice review for 'Facebook Friend' from the eloquent Clive Pownceby who, apart from writing reviews for Folk North West, also runs the Bothy folk club in Southport which we will be visiting later in the year.
We'll be heading up north this coming weekend (13/14 Feb) for a couple of gigs in Bolton and Chester. Hope you can come if you're in the area. See gig page for details.

A really enjoyable gig last night at Chesham FC where we were joined onstage by Alex, who had a bit of a bowel problem but otherwise he just concentrated on chewing up our set list!

Yesterday we met an old friend of ours for the first time since the eighties. In those days Mike (pictured 2nd from left) ran a studio in Leatherhead where the Police recorded their first albums. He helped us with lots of free studio time and offered to hawk our recordings around for us, which he did without success. We were all going to be rich and famous when we last saw him 30 years ago... and what happened since then?
Well, he made a lot of money from publishing the Teletubbies music and our claim to fame has been supplying the music for an ad for Immodium. How the mighty hopeful are fallen.
We're still hoping though and Mike is going to try again!!

Another nice review from Shire Folk to add to our collection of fab reviews for Facebook Friend. We've had some great responses to our latest effort, which makes it all worthwhile.

We're starting our gigs this year with our annual visit to the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden on Friday evening (see gig page). Can't wait to get going again after Christmas... see you there if you can make it!

Happy new year to everyone. We are happily working on a couple of new songs that we have written since FB Friend... getting them recorded and having a lot more fun doing it than eating turkey!
We're really looking forward to doing a few gigs, and we've actually got the time to prepare for them at the moment with our first new year gig being on 22nd Jan at the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden.
Can we get on with the year now?.. the snow will soon be stopping.
