Like I said, I’ll make the CD available shortly via busterandfriends.com (and it will be available as a download from frimp.co.uk), but in the meantime, if you want a copy, just drop me an email

…or, you could always walk down to the Downtown Music Gallery 😉

performances (London, Birmingham and Liverpool)

There’re some significant changes to the performance diary:

  • London, December 2nd: A performance at The Klinker. (This was somewhat last minute, thus you won’t find my name in the Klinker publicity.)
  • Birmingham, December 3rd: The FrImp event will take place at the later time of 10:00pm in the Elgar Room and admission is free.

I don’t have any details for the December 4th event in Liverpool. I recommend that you contact Frakture for details.
