2016 - golly

Happy New Year. How's by you?

Me? Och a wee chest cold but I'm not one to complain.

My Christmas present of Brian Blessed's Memoir "Absolute Pandemonium" continues to inspire, but I've had to have a pause in proceedings:

"Before I start this chapter I must ask you a question: have you seen the film Flash Gordon?  If you haven't I strongly suggest that you pop off now and watch it before continuing. In fact, I must insist..."

Meanwhile I enjoyed Sherlock. Lots of folk seem to be having a pop but hey ho. And as for the first episode of the BBC's War And Peace - I'm in.

But I really appreciated (enjoyed would be incorrect) "Leningrad & The Orchestra That Defied Hitler". Amazing, compelling TV. The accounts of survivors of the siege of the city were horrific. And the power of the music and what it meant to them....

In other news, I caught the 'Sponsored by Digby Brown' idents at the top of Beowulf last night featuring my music. I'd been working on that before christmas - nice to hear it on the telly.

Oh and be quick - I have two albums temporarily discounted on i-tunes:


And that's all I have to say.
