Longpigs & Being on the Beeb

I was recently invited to take part in the 'Record Detectives' slot on Nemones weekend show on BBC 6music. Nemone did a brief interview with me lamenting the fact I appear to have lost my copy of the Longpigs debut album, 'The Sun is Often Out'.

I know it's still available in all good record shops (and HMV) but a new CD could never replace the one I bought at the time when I first saw Longpigs live in the late nineties. It was great to hear 'She Said' played on 6music and from twitter activity it looks like there's still a lot of Longpigs love out there.

And so there should be. And here's why.

New Page

So I've finally got round to expanding the website a little, by adding my recording history.
On the Discography page, are details of all my recording experience (released) and links to various places around the internet.

If you like what you find and wish to book me for recording, drop me a line on

Happy Birthday Ginglik

In London, in Shepherds Bush, in an old underground public toilet, there is a club called Ginglik. I must have gigged there 10 times with various bands over the years, and I'm chuffed to say Popes of Chillitown have been invited to their 9th Birthday celebrations. We have to earn our keep, mind, and we'll be main support for the The Cuban Brothers.

She-Bu's best kept secret, a stones throw from the shopping-mecca monstrosity that is Westfields, Ginglik has a great vibe, awesome decor and one of the best sound systems around. And a broken pedal organ. We shot the video to 'I See Dub People' there, and they've been very good to PoC over the years, and we're proud to perform at their birthday celebrations.

The link to the facebook event is on my gig page, we'll see you down the front. Get there early, it's going to be a big one
