I’ve got a guitar! Mr P bought me a lovely solid top acoustic for Christmas. He’s going to teach me to play Pixies songs.

H22 is honouring its current gig commitments and then it’s the end of the road for that particular Hammond quartet. They’ve written and played some beautiful tunes, and done storming gigs; but over the past year or so, Mr P found running a band more stressful than rewarding. So after April, that will be it. He’s probably continue playing in a more straight-ahead arrangement with a couple of other musicians, but he says he’s sworn off the running a band thing for a couple of years at least.
