Much has happened since I last posted anything in May. A quarter of a year for a start. Time flies by when you’re driving about the UK and Europe on a tour bus, or catching flights to the Isle of Man and other overseas destinations…
However, a great deal of thanks is due to everyone who came along to see Paul Weller over the last few months. There were some great moments, the weather was mostly kind to us and the memory of playing “I Can’t Explain” and “Substitute” with Roger Daltrey at Bedgebury will stay with me for ever.
The Paul Weller band hits the US and Canada for a short tour in September. Before then, I will be sitting in for Eddie Piller on his Eclectic Soul Show for Soho Radio at 1600 on Thursday, August 14th. It will be a daunting task to try and fill his shoes, but I’ll give it a go! Soho Radio can be found here and if you’re in London, you can come and sit in their coffee shop on Great Windmill Street and have a listen as the show goes out. If you miss it, the show will be available to have a listen to on Mixcloud.
There’s been a lot of love for my releases on Bandcamp over the last few months too. If you haven’t already checked them out, you can investigate them here. I’m hoping to add to them before I head off again in September- more news as it happens.
Not Bad Records have a new compilation CD coming out with one or two tunes I’m involved with on it. Information exists here though please feel free to order it from anywhere other than Ama*on! The best place to get it would be from your local record shop. The same goes for my back catalogue, although the Acid Jazz online shop and eBay store may prove more convenient if you live outside the UK.
Don’t forget, you can follow me on Twitter for the latest thoughts as they tumble from my head.
