It’s been great to catch up with old faces the last few weeks. The Thunderdogs played a great gig at The Puffin Festival… we haven’t been together since the Archaos reunion 5 years ago… We met up back stage just before we went on, Tony knocked up a setlist and we were off… no rehearsal… great gig and much fun.. Also, I’ve heard some of the old Legendary New Apes material- remixes are coming through from Gavin of the most fabulous music by this legendary band… I suppose we were destined for oblivion with a name like that… I also played a gig with the brilliant Cesarians at Bush Hall, supporting the magnificent, Knifeworld. What a lot of fun…

The Spanner Jazz Punks’ Zappa album is slowly coming together but there still is no gig-ready band…

spannertate have been playing a lot. The last gig at the Bird’s Nest was 3 sets in 3 hours… That was great… like being at a festival… what a great pub… more gigs coming up… Another gig on Pullens, the Golden Hinde…

Coming up this week… The Spanner Big Band will be at The Gunners on Wednesday 25th
