...the very splendid Mr Jon Downes has interviewed me for his Gonzo Multimedia blog.
You can read parts one and two here
and hopefully part three will be here tomorrow.... :-)
Today I will be interviewed on Bruce Swan's radio programme 'Music Your Mother Wouldn't Like' on Listener Supported WPKN 89.5 FM Bridgeport, Connecticut and streaming on line at www.wpkn.org His programme is from 1 pm to 4 pm Eastern Time
Well. I did it!!! And I enjoyed it, the band enjoyed it and I hope the audienc enjoyed it. It was a wet and chilly Sunday night in London so I am grateful to all those who came to listen. The lovely Sand Snowman and his band were also playing along with the dutch bands 'The Use of Ashes' and 'Sleep of Reason' who were all very excellent
There is a review of the gig here
and there will be lots of pictures in the gallery soon. Here's another one to be going on with :-)
the Fairport Convention documentary is on BBC4 tonight 14th Sept 2012, and will be repeated later if you miss it. Or you can watch it on iPlayer I expect
I have been nattering in this documentary. I have forgotten what I said but I will no doubt find out.
Oooh just seen there's a bit of a clip on that link :-)
and then there is this
Hi all, Paul the Admin Monkey here...
Jude's hoping to put up a few audio snippets from her new songs in the near future. In the meantime she's given me a selection of 9 random edits from Talking with Strangers.
I'm sure you'll enjoy listening to them as much as I just have. :-)

Well. I keep saying I don't do live gigs don't I? So what has made me say yes to this one? Eh?
It's on the 28th October at 229 The Venue, Great Portland St London
Tickets are available from here should you wish to venture to London http://www.crazy-diamond.nl/tonefloat/html/store.htm
And there will be songs from Talking With Strangers and some from the new album, tentatively called 'Flow and Change'
It would be lovely to see you there... :-)
Am delighted to say that there will be a new release of Talking With Strangers on vinyl by Tonefloat. This time with Jackie Morris Artwork, which will look wonderful as a 12" cover. Hopefully that will be up for sale soon on the Tonefloat website
And I am more than delighted that Gonzo Multimedia will be releasing Talking With Strangers in the USA, as a proper release and not as an import. So hopefully many more people will be able to hear the music that I am so proud of. Hooray!
I am trying to cobble together an autobiography. It is taking ages because I keep finding other things to do like walking the dog or making a cup of coffee or indeed eating a biscuit. I am nagging myself quite severely to get on with it. Which I will..
Am really sad to hear of the death of Lol Coxhill with whom I worked or indeed played during the 70s' along with Steve and Phil Miller..
He was a lovely unique person and through playing with him discovered the joys of freeform improvisation. Not that I could do it, but I learned to love listening to it.
I am proud to have been a small part of his history..
