As part of revamping and relaunching Trailer Star Records I discovered this little gem from 1993.

I honestly thought I was the Berkshire Guy Clark or Micky Newbury when I sent this off to record lables with the press pack below….

I was young and in love and broke as usual….recorded entirely on a half-broken Fostex on the top floor of a seedy bedsit in Hammersmith West London.

Hence the Londinium references throughout….

The tape got one reply from the head honcho at EMI publishing ( George Michael etc etc ) Surprised to get this….


Oh well I liked it , here liked it then and still like it now. I think it my best bunch of songs ever.
