Still in touch with the old band, at the mo we are all doing our own projects, (all a bit fatter) and maybe one day we might ............ hmmmmm, maybe

Dave hi, I do remember the band talkin about ya, ........a spider fighter saved my life last nite it must o been around seven am.......... i still have a copy of the studio tape on cassette on it also is Alice, space station, i think it was called and so on, Arthur was still manager then, but he sort of vanished when Malc did, I remember watchin em in some basement in an Ashton pub, you used to do 'Merrygoround' thought that one was great, anyway Dave Broadbent is still drummin with 'A Few Good Men' Al is doin recordin stuff at home, Alex just eats for England now its his new hobby, and I have a rock band 'Fifty Fingers' based in Delamere, I still see Al now and then, were all pushin on a bit but it great were all still at it.
