Hail Squaddies, We hope you all had a great Crimbo and are now preparing to stick two fingers up to 2017 and offer a warm embrace to 2018. In spite of 3 of us having Man Flu we managed to enjoy the last 3 gigs of the year at Dundee, Glasgow and Newcastle and as always we are grateful to all who came out and supported us. Thanks to those of you that bought our Christmas CD, we did our best to get them all out in time for Crimbo. Rather than spending all the money made from the CD on wine, cake and guitar porn I’ve made donations to the following good causes: Paws2rescue, Network for animals, West Midlands Hunt Sabs, London Wildlife Protection and Hillside Animal Sanctuary. We also have some signed t-shirts available in the raffle at the Macmillan Cancer Support fundraiser Stomp It Out! A punk all dayer at Chaplins & The Cellar Bar, Boscombe, Bournemouth on 13th January.
