The Sessions Catalogue
Dead Famous People
2003 Reissue - "Sub-stance", 22 track CD reissued by LTM. I'm on Romany Blood, Tesco's and Whatever happened to the blues? (Not Age Concern as stated on the sleeve)
This was my first 'professional' recording session outside of playing with The Higsons. It took Stiff many weeks to pay up (preparing me for the "lost your invoice" game which record labels still play with monotonous regularity), and the record was unreleased until 1993. I may have played on Fighting Irish too, but I'm not sure. Uncredited and my contribution was not very good, truth be told. Members of the Romford League of Friends still talk to me, though.

I also played onstage with The Farmer's Boys occasionally, but was always incredibly nervous for some reason. I don't think I ever got through a gig without splitting the simplest of notes. Thank god the BBC In Concert at the Paris Theatre was never released.
