Pete Shaw…  🙁 + 🚘 = happy 6 year old in my favourite pedal car…had it years and swooped it for a pedal bike! Photo taken in the rear garden of our house in Shelley Crescent in Hounslow

Phil Gill… This was one of two CDs in 2001 that I made absolutely no contribution to whatsoever, but still got a mention in the liner notes.

Pete Prescott… You were a kitten I guess you played with us on gigs Phil Hudson couldn’t play on. I find it hard listening to this album. We had used or time up at the studio. I had to go in with a voice weakened by gigs and had literally a couple of hours one afternoon to do all the vocals. I just sang it thru from track one till the end. I didn’t have time to repair parts that were really bad. As I went through it my voice was getting weaker. I can hear it getting worse. But the playing is great. Phil Hudson played some stunning guitar ! Great sales job on the album ha ha !
I bet the few people that have it are digging it out to check how bad the vocals are !

Alan Esdaile… you still did a great version of Burlesque Pete
