I, too, want to check out Ben Marwood after hearing about him from Frank's blog and these forums. I assume I can find him on iTunes (haven't looked yet), but any advice on what to start with? Thanks in advance.

I started two weeks ago with “Outside there is a curse” and fully satisfied with the choice. It is available on I tunes.

Tim Barry! Rivanna Junction is such a great album... when you put a place to a song, first really got Avoiding Catalonic Surrender just immense. And Beans On Toast - 'Don't Belive The Bullshit' should be taught in every sociology class.

Having just read Frank mention Townes Van Zandt in an interview as a dealbreaker, I started a journey of discovery with YouTube as my friend.

... WOW. This man. All my life. Where has he been?!

I ordered a single of them the other day because of touring with Frank but I have not heard it yet. Maybe more to follow.

Glad to be of service.

Seriously though, I thought I was pretty down with the cool songwriters. I was obviously mistaken. /bowled over.
