• July 15: free afternoon gig at The Criterion

    At The Criterion Millstone Lane Leicester, me and a couple of guitars in a few tunings and my voice and songs that I can't believe I've written, they surprise me even with their lyrical and melodic depths. Lots from the forthcoming album 'Driven By Love, Driven By Hate' and from recent albums 'Touching Stones, Tasting Rain', 'The Heat Of Molten Diamonds' and 'All Was Numbered' - and I'll play things from 2017 to right back to my 80s Factory Records days, nearly 40 years worth of material and the stories to go with them. Official times are 3pm start, 5pm end but I usually go over that a bit. Free admission and unfree beers, that's the way it works, be great to see you there and share the afternoon with you...

  • Jeremy Corbyn speaks in Leicester: A positive, hopeful day

    May 6: Today was a day Labour supporters in Leicester shared a positive, hopeful day. We are not deluded, we know the problems out there, and the huge mountain to climb to even do reasonably well. I am so sorry people will choose to vote for a government that will ultimately treat them very badly and unfairly. It would not be easy to improve things but for all it's muddles and failings at least Labour will try, there are some core values in there just as there are also those who will let us down - but the Tories are no perfect efficient machine either. It's not too late to vote for something better, something that will give us all a valiant attempt to change things for the better, for all.
