5 Day Fast

Ok, so I've been thinking of doing this whole 5 day fasting thing for years and always been too chicken, the thought of not sacrificing my body to that velvety bar of chocolate, the moistness of a welsh cake or whatever sugar laden treat literally struck fear into my very soul. After a lot of research, a lot of additional reading and a lot of telling myself it's a good idea I was going in.

I kissed the dog, wrote my will and left a note saying "If you do...

FIVE COMPASS LIGHTHOUSE - What's it all about?!

Hey everyone,

New album is out as of 1st November 2019!!...

I did this a few years back for "YOU JUST LOST THE GAME" I wrote a little bit of uninteresting information about each song on the album so thought I'd do it again, maybe you'd like to hear it.


This isn't a song, merely a poem set to sounds that kicks the album off. There's train noises...

August update

I've realized something today! I'm SHIT at blogging! As many teachers said to me in reports from school.....MUST TRY HARDER I've just finished another 5 gigs in 4 days this weekend, playing Shrewsbury, Wolverhampton, Stoke, a lovely little festival in Wales and then Newport last night. That takes us up to #117 gigs this year so far I think, something like that anyway Currently we're getting ready for 3 gigs at WATCHET FESTIVAL in Somerset this weekend, tent, cooker, all that malarkey. S... Read Full Post »

Happy Monday all!

Well to say that I'm sat here after 2 awesome gigs yesterday, totally gobsmacked at what I'm seeing on the lap top is a bit of an understatement

Yesterday was great fun first of all, the first gig at a private party was played in a dining room to 40 or 50 pissed up party goers at 4pm! What a blast that was, literally raising the roof in sing a longs.

We then packed up, loaded up and got to the next gig 20 miles away in 40 minutes and played a full...

10 Things about You! Just Lost The Game you didn't know

As the new album is out now I thought I'd share some unknown facts about it

Maybe you'll find them interesting, maybe not, they are however true

The albums available on iTunes, Amazon and on CD at gigs and via the website store

Ok, here goes........

1) The "You! Just Lost The Game" album title came from a conversation about "The Game" with my good friend Tim Compton. Apparently if you google "The Game" the rules are there but basically everyone is playing it, no ...

You! Just Lost The Game

Posted by on February 13, 2016 at 10:40 AM Comments comments (1)

Well it's been a long rime coming but finally we're 6 days from the release of the new album

You! Just Lost The Game is my heart and soul put into 13 songs, sounding exactly how I want it to, its not totally pretty and shiney but then again I grew up in grunge and punk and non of that ever was either.

I'm really proud, I've wanted to do something like this for years and although I know its a big risk, considering the way the world expects to hear music these days but I've spe...

Full Force Folk Friends from Holland

Posted by on January 27, 2016 at 9:10 AM Comments comments (6)

I sit here, chilling in my front room, while Judge Rinder is ranting at some girl who is interupting him, puffing on a E-Cig with a coffee and life is relaxed

This weekend was not so chilled

Me and the Simpletons (less Nikki) headed off to Europe for some shenanigans with our friends Bunch of Bastards

3 gigs, 3 days, 1300 miles, easy enough right? Well, even with a broken car (Which is still in Holland by the way) having such good friends like Andries and his fellow bas...

1000 miles more!

Well that was a weekend or two of highs and lows, luckily mostly highs, in fact there was only one low so happy days all round

Last weekend we filmed a show at one of my favourite venues to play. Percy’s Coffee and Curios in Whitchurch, Shropshire is the most quirky and brilliant place to play and ever since we played there for the first time back in Feb this year I’ve been mulling over filming something there. It’s just an incredible little place, stained glass window...

So I thought I'd see if the text was white now and not that horrible poo colour

If this is white I'm going to man hug Mark Hambley alot when I see him!
