O.K. done loads recently, the interview for raw talent on BBC Radio humberside was aired on March 15th. Sounds good. i tried to be quite enthusiastic sounding, and it seems to have worked. Sounds better than than my usual miserable tones. You can listen again on the BBC iplayer if you so desire. We also did a gig at the Adelphi in Hull supporting Skeletons and the kings of all cities. They're a great band from New York. stayed at the adelphi until 3. Was pretty wrecked. Jacko who runs the Adelphi seemed to enjoy himself and Jim the soundman was his usual self. Next gig is Tuesday 24th at the Sesh at Linnet and Lark in Hull. then a month off gigs so we can get some recording done.
