Next Release!! Our take on an old Irish traditional song - Whiskey In The Jar.  Relese date 20 January 2021 to celebrate the inauguration of US President-elect Jo Biden, a son of Irish emigrees from County Mayo. Biden brings fresh hope for our planet and humanity, standing up for peace in Eire and Ulster as enshrined in the Good Friday Agreement. He brings the peace, we bring the music. A date for your diaries!

See the mad mad video, the single that asks you if your taking the right medecine!!!

2020 Single  'In Vienna' It’s packed into every nook and cranny, but you have to look. Go beyond theusual “here is the history of the hats burgers” (who did not wear hats and didn’t eat burgers) and instead hit the weird and the obscure. So this is the song. A love that came to nothing. A dream that ended before it began. Like most art in fact.

Single 2020 'Here Comes The World Again' Check out the fun video below. Head to the music page for FREE download. (time limited)

This album sounds like it was recorded way back in the early 1980s, which is no problem at all, because the 12 included songs of THE PAPERS on this album sound really good” - Review of Fahrenheit In A Centigrade World in Strutterzine, Netherlands, December 2020
