12th August

I would like to thank everyone who sent me kind messages in response to my supposed retirement from recording. I will reply to as many as I can, but just in case I miss anyone out….apologies. I am going to Orkney for a week on Sunday and am determined to be Internet-free, and by the time I get back I will have forgotten all about you.

I would also like to remind that the Facebook page, although not administered by me, will remain active as far as I know, especially as there are still some things I want to do with the existing material; for instance, I have fashioned a remix of One Girl which I will post soon, and I also intend to shoot a film for it before Christmas. I may also look at 10 sketches again with a view to releasing it on vinyl.

time now to go and shoot some grouse, if I can find some in Devon

best wishes
