It is more than appropriate that in the 30th anniversary year of the Miner’s Strike, the Red Leicester choir have decided to perform my song The Dirty Thirty.
I’ll be playing this fabulous FREE all day mini festival in Bolton tomorrow (Saturday).
You’ll love it. It’s a curtain raiser for the Wigan Diggers Festival and it’s got a great range of music, poetry and comedy from 2pm til 10pm.View full post
Following my recent blog post, delicately titled Cut The Bullshit and Create, I’ve been making efforts to do just that myself.
The song is inspired by a coal miner from Salford who I’ve been hearing a lot about of late. I’ve never met him, but hearing about him sparked something within me.View full post
My Mum popped round earlier this week. I’ve been pestering her for ages to share her songs with me. She finally did.
You’ll remember that it was her that came up with the Oh Mr Cameron song, so she has a fine pedigree.
Today is the 100th anniversary of the publication of The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists, my favourite book.
To commemorate the anniversary, the film making team at “Shut Out The Light” have released this fabulous trailer of their forthcoming film Still Ragged.
I wrote a song about John Hartwell last week. I want to say more about the background to it, so that you know the full story.
John Hartwell’s death in 1972 was a brutal one. He was stripped, tied, and put in a bath of extremely hot water.
I’d love to hear your feedback on this new song that I wrote today.
Send me your comments below.
I always love hearing your thoughts on these songs. It’s a demo version but has come out pretty nice.
If you want a fist punching night of uplifting, soul rocking music, get to Marine FC tonight to hear my good mate Joe Solo.
I have spent the day writing this song. It was extremely emotional in the writing.
It comes off the back of several days of personal torment as I wrestle with issues around my own training to be a psychotherapist.
