For the new record, while I guess some of that is in...

Re: Songs in Adverts

Hi there. I haven't been directly asked, so this answer is purely hypothetical. Billy Bragg has a pretty good line on this - back in the 70s-90s, bands made quite enough money from record sales, so doing an advert was (rightly) seen as spurious, greedy. These days it's a struggle for most bands to e...

Re: City Winery

Apologies for this. The venue mega-fucked up. Alas trying to sort a replacement to keep everyone happy was a nightmare, and the label want me to finish the record quicksharp, so I'm back to the studio. We'll make it up to Boston.
