'Spring Break All The Time' by Hugh John Noble - Out 1st of June

Here it is then: Hugh J Noble's Bleak Midwinter. Festive classics made SLOWER AND SADDER.

The album is free to download, but if you choose to pay for it, the money will go to BORDER ANGELS, a volunteer based, non profit organisation that advocates for human rights, humane immigration reform, and social justice with a special focus on issues related to the US-Mexican border.

You can catch me playing a couple of songs from this to open up this rager on Friday: Benefit for Second Chance SD w/ Hocus/Gloomsday/FictitiousDishes.

Surprise! Here are some old demos I recorded on my, sadly deceased, Casiotone MT-45, and which never got used for anything. I miss that keyboard and I decided to celebrate its all too brief life by making these cuts available for human consumption. You're welcome, humans.

Also, do not fear: I have tons of new songs written. I just need to figure out what I want to do with them, and I will plan to have a new album ready before the year is out. Maybe two albums.

Here is a digital re-release of Lost Sound Tapes' 2008 mothers day compilation, featuring bands covering songs that their mums like. I tackled the Cutting Crew's immortal classic, (I Just) Died In Your Arms, under my secret Lady Writers alias. Enjoy.

Hey everyone. I was digging through the nether regions of the actionpop! records giant warehouse recently and discovered there are, unbelievably, still some copies left of the last four Hugh John Noble albums! To celebrate this I have decided to throw a brain-meltingly crazy sale, and make all the albums available for next to nothing. 'Hayling Island' (2009), 'I'm a ghost (la la la la la la la la)' (2011), 'From The Quill Of Hugh John Noble' (2012) and 'Spring Break All The Time' (2013) can be yours for just £1 each (plus postage). Shoot me a message if you're interested:

I covered this song for The Album Wall's "69 Love Songs Covered" project. There are still a few left if you want to pick one to do yourself. Check out
