The 'Dinosaur Planet' albums arrived last week... and looked in a right old state, so I've had to send them back to the factory to be done again. Annoyingly this means they WON'T be available this month as promised - sorry for the delay but after all this time and effort I want to make sure they're PERFECT. I hope to have them ready to buy this time NEXT month, but in the meantime...
FREE DOWNLOAD SINGLE
We're very VERY happy to announce the release of our brand new FREE download single, 'Theme From Dinosaur Planet', which is available NOW, HERE:
It's an edit of the album's lead track which a MARVELLOUS VIDEO featuring loads of artwork by the wonderful Mr John Allison. Direct links are:

IN OTHER NEWS
Christmas is a-coming and we are making exciting PREPARATIONS - we'll have one, maybe TWO songs for you this year! More news on this next time, when we've actually recorded them.
One of the stars of 'Dinosaur Planet', Mr Chris T-T, has just released the songs from his Edinburgh show 'Disobedience: Chris T-T sings AA Milne' as an album on Bandcamp. It's ACE - have a listen, HERE:
And finally, our friends at Dandelion Radio are once again running the Official John Peel Festive 50, where you can vote for your favourite tracks of the year. Voting starts tomorrow and runs to the end of November, HERE:
What's that? Why yes, I do believe free download singles ARE eligible, why do you ask?
And that's about enough for this month - thanks for listening, and see you next time!
