The Don't be Seventeen EP 



Valentine's Day from Illegal Songs
A song dismissing the tokens and fripperies of love - a FREE download from Bandcamp




Cigarette from Faithlessnessless
A simple metaphor song - a 'live favourite' as they say 




But it's not all love songs...

Incitement to Religious Hatred from Illegal Songs
This is a song in favour of free speech - and against the legal enforcement of inoffensiveness.  A reaction to a new law in the UK.  Sort of tongue in cheek and also deadly serious




and little bit of politics...
I was pleased to be invited to play this at a festival of political song by singer songwriter Robb Johnson who does political stuff without the grindingly obvious cliches that ruin too many political good intentions.  It's not art but it does make a point.  This is about 'New Labour' who it seemed were intent on becoming the Tory party - and succeeded.  It's a list really...

Just come across your music and listened to the Blleding Edge album. Got to say I'm impressed. More power to your elbow Sir. And come down and play in Wales soon :)
