New Songs New Tunes New Music!
Yes you read it right! After 20 years of the same old songs we have finally written some new tracks and they are not half bad, even though we say so our selves.

The results were mixed by Steve, Henry and Bev, over night and the mixes although OK were not really up to scratch.
So we called in Simon Birch, trooped of to New Cross to a small studio close to Fordham park, and transferred all … Read More »
