Happy weekend. Here is an unreleased track from 2010, the early days. At the time I was trying out a few ideas and figuring out a musical focus, & this one was put to the side at the time but listening back the other day I think it sounds pretty decent. I've heard worse ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zS-O57a0uA8

Technology ! While I was waiting for the missus to get ready on Sunday morning I thought I'd make this video. It took about a minute to put the camera on a tripod, 1 min 30 secs to film and a couple of minutes to upload it to youtube. Amazing what you can do today really !:-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWbOSYgfw0k&sns=em

Here's a fun video my pal Sarah Negahdari made a few years back for the song "Bittersweet". I first met Sarah when I recorded her band The Happy Hollows in 2007. Since then Sarah has also played with Silversun Pickups and has released some great solo tracks under the name "Pisces": give it a listen !

Full length album is on it's way. In the meantime here's "My First Band", a tale of some 13/14 year old Wolverhampton school mates first ever gig. The band was originally called The Lowest Class but changed their name to Urban Kids a few days before the show for some reason ?!. The pic shows L-R Graham Clark, David Newton, Lee Thomas, Mark "Dee Dee" Davis. Enjoy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKzTr7epEps
