It’s called Make Good Art and it stars my new mate Neil Gaiman on lead vocals… kind of.
It was recorded with Dave Draper at The Old Cider Press (Worcs) and Chris’s House Studios (Leeds… obviously). Mastered expertly by Dave too. James Hamilton on trumpet. Mad Gallica on gospel choir. And the MIGHTY Jason Bowld on drum duties. Everything else by me.

It’s a call-to-arms for doing the best we can with what we’ve got in difficult times. Let’s have 2021!
This is the first song from the long-awaited follow-up to Life Is Often Brilliant… it’s called KALEIDOSCOPES and it’ll be out in April. Pre-order will kick off in March.
In the meantime, you can still buy the facemasks and my ‘Very Best Of Quaran-Tour’ album over at my shop.
PLEASE spread this around as much as you can – I know I can rely on you. THANK YOU!
And welcome to what is – fingers crossed – the FINAL part of the ‘Quaran-Tour’. The home straight, if you will. With a vaccine speeding its way around lots of octogenarians and heading towards us all, it seems as good a time as any to launch my EXCLUSIVE AND UNAVAILABLE ANYWHERE ELSE, EVER new DOUBLE CD:
‘The Very Best Of Quaran-Tour’.
With 24 tracks, that’s almost TWO HOURS of acoustically-arranged artisan… art. This CD contains no less than SIX exclusive tracks that will never be available ANYWHERE ELSE.
You can also get your hands on TWO exclusive new face coverings – one ‘Q-Tour’ and one Eureka Machines design.
As with everything on the Quaran-Tour, 50% of all profits go to charity, and this time, it’s going to Cancer Research – a cause which has surely touched all of our hearts and lives over the years. The lightbulb design on the EM one was by one of our own, the fabulous Vicky Peck, who we tragically lost on Christmas Day 2020 from the bastard cancer. So I thought it was the best possible charity to remember her by.
Hope you get behind this as much as all the other stuff I’ve done over the past year or so. Together, we have raised over £12,000 for a host of amazing charities – it would be amazing to push this up further, maybe even to £15,000.
As ever, there are special bundles with mega discounts, so go have a look. The CDs are with me NOW and the face coverings should be with me in a couple of weeks, so expect it all to land with you by the start of February (slightly longer if you are further afield, but the postage to America is back to a reasonable rate, so shouldn’t take forever this time).
