2017 NEWS!

I have often wondered when does it become no longer acceptable to wish someone a happy new year! Is Jan 13th, for example, too late? For now I’ll presume it’s OK so a happy new year to you all.

2016 was a strange year – lots of really cool and talented people died. I had a thought when I woke up on the morning of 31/12/16 - Wouldn't it be nice if all the people that passed away this year were having a big party on Mars?!!

And so I adapted the words of a song written by one of those cool and talented people, asked Joe Hunt to sing it with me, and the result is here.

We called it Life on Mars 2016 - have a listen here.

 

However, we are firmly into 2017 now – and there are loads of exciting things happening in the coming weeks and months so I thought I should let you know!

So, in brief…
