21.10.20 : Hi, we were moving forward in these strange times but looks like a second lockdown might scupper our immediate plans.. Practically overnight, the future for  bands and venues that have been around for years is now uncertain, If restaurants and bars can’t open their doors, owners can’t book performers. Both are now in the same boat: anxious and devastated.Like so many industries that have been hit by COVID-19, the music scene around the world has gone silent. . Everything now has come to a screeching halt. Local artists across the world have abruptly lost their jobs.Sad to hear some of our local live music pubs have no plans for live gigs or closing for good ( The Zanzibar and Cavern in Liverpool being two examples). Nothing we can do except wait it out and  hopefully get back to some kind of normality soon., .xxxx. 

In other , less distressing news ,after having so much fun with with' DUDES' we are having a crack at 'Five Years' ,giving it a jazz treatment plus a Prog Rock ditty called Mount Fuji Subterranean Society.Some new lockdown songs on the horizon as well, 'We made A Monster' and ' 'Tin Man' .Some of us are now back in work or preparing to be back, we are using the time to sort out songs for a vinyl release . Thanks for the continuing support ,it really is appreciated. . .xxxx. ..Stay safe everyone

“Such a powerful opening, the piano merging into all of the other instruments was amazing. The lyrics are so powerful and really appealed to me. I feel like being able to connect with a song is so important. The beat of the song was so uplifting and powerful it is definitely a feel good song. The lyrics have such a purpose , the male vocalist had such a beautiful voice. Loved, loved this song.” “Love the piano! Great instrumentation! This is an instant classic that could be played on the radio for the next 20 year. Love the vocals. Great mix and great background accompaniment. Would listen to this track again!” ”
