The bulk of the recording for this album took place in
London with the exception of the title track (This Hour) that
was recorded at Crystal Studios in Portsmouth, and some vocals
and guitar recorded at Bosstown studios in Atlanta, Georgia.
The root band that I work with is as follows:
Danny Kelly on Drums and percussion
'Me Laddo' Diffin on bass of many shades
'Ruby' Evans on guitar, steel, banjo, mandolin ....
shall I go on!
myself on vocals and guitar.
It is the above line up that you will hear on most of the
recordings that I intend to release through this web site.
However, on the version of the album titled 'THIS HOUR' that
I recorded for M&G Records, I was very fortunate to get
the chance to record with three members of Ian Dury's Blockheads:
Johnny Turnbull on guitar, Norman Watt-Roy on bass and Monti
on Drums. Along with Volker Janssen of Spear of Destiny on
keyboards and the fantastic fiddling of the one and only Bob
Loveday. Alan Shacklock also played some superb guitar and
helped a lot with the pre-production.

The (for me) magical union with the Blockheads was brought
about by my co-producer Chris Bostock, one of the founder
members of Jo Boxers. Along with the engineering talents of
Darren Alison (of Devine Comedy fame) I believe we made a
bloody good record that is timeless and will one day be recognised

not only a quality singer / songwriter but also an equally
good musician and producer."
