A review of mine and Jose’s split EP in German.
Jose and I were extremely privileged to be joined by Marcel Legane (Marshall Lagoon) for most of our UK dates over the past two weeks. In addition to spicing up our songs with his gorgeous voice and beautiful guitar work, he also writes his own pop megahits.
You can listen to his latest EP, Heart Life, at marcellegane.com.
Vanders and I are off to Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands tomorrow, this time joined by the multi-talented Duncan Howsley. We’re going to be filming a music video at various locations while we’re on tour. Ace!
Order mine and Jose’s split EP by tomorrow night and we’ll post it out before we head to Europe next week, complete with a signed poster. Jose’s signature is pretty good. Mine is pretty average.

P.S. The audio above is Jose’s cover of ‘Have You Got Heart?’ - didn’t she do a grand job?

Fortunately, though, I have a pretty spacious basement that would impress even Garth Marenghi, and it’s perfect for putting on shows, so I figured I probably should…”

Apparently our cover of Blindsided is “a song to have sex to”.
