All our CDs have been made with either sponsorship or self funded by the band. This has allowed us to record and produce 1000s of CDs professionally, giving them all away for donations to relevant charities. We have very few left at this point, they are collectors items. So There! Every single penny can is given to whoever we are playing for.

The default charities have been mental health and refugee related, but it does depend on the gig. I don’t know how much has been raised, nor do I care. The queen won’t give me a knighthood no matter how much is raised, but I can accrue a couple of brownie points if just by some miracle there is a god. Mind you working with the devils’ music is pretty good.

Since the lockdown I released the All in this Together video, that you can reach here. We have worked on two new songs, one of mine and one of Hinas’. We were just one weekend from finishing them. Now we’re waiting for the rules to let us cross borders and mingle in a studio. Up to that point they were sounding fantastic, something great to look forward to!

I have also finished recording a version of the Spitting Image song, “Never met a nice South African” with words changed to suit the Communication Workers Union who commissioned me. With Danny Chang recording the music, Mike Morgan recording vocals and Me singing the song. Now I’m waiting for the CWU to sort recording the video. It’s funny and sarcastic but I have to wait for them before I can play it.

CDs Produced

Have been creating CDs for over 20 years! We recently recorded two CDs at the famous Rockfield studios. took it in turns to sit at the piano where Freddie allegedly wrote Bohemian Rhapsody. Freddie would have been chuffed to know we sat at his piano. These included a numbers of covers as a blatant attempt to get gigs.
