You know, it's tacky but I only used that title because it rhymed!


That's a weird looking word, isn't it?


I've done some incredibly fun gigs recently.

At the end of July, I got to play out in the open in Ringwood Town Centre thanks to the lovely Kez Hinton and Elaine Richmond, sticking a tongue out to the rain as it barrelled down around us but didn't put the few hardy music fans off who found cover and great music.

A couple of really fun quiz nights with Rich Baxter at The Green Man and The Foundry Arms, always a laugh and love the Play Your Cards Right at the end (RIP Brucie).

Great to return to Camden Bar & Kitchen after quite an absence and then it was a particular thrill to play The Green Rooms Live evening at The Forest Arts Centre in New Milton. A proper stage, extremely respectful audience and I was honoured to be in such good musical company with Roy Clayton, Izzy Whitlock and Krista Green.

Then I played V-Dub Island on the Isle of Wight and caught up with some lovely people such as The Ridgeways, Kez and Elaine again (should have dedicated Without Words to you two too, sorry), Lee Rasdall-Dove and parents (and dog), Katie Waygood and Nicky Hart.

Finally another of Rich Baxter's quizzes and I was ready for a little live music break, which I'm now on.

But nothing stops for long at Coosticks HQ! Onto new music recording and will update you soon on how that's going.


You know soon from me means anywhere between a day and six months or more, don't you?

I just didn't want you to wait in for me or anything, you know?!

Enjoy Bake-Off, wonder what it'll be like??!

And the attached photo is from V-Dub!


Cheers :)
