The Last Working Day Of The Month: Issue 98

< issue 97 issue 99 >
(MJ Hibbett & The Validators FACT, April 30th 2013)

Hello all, and welcome to this pre-pre-centenary edition of the newsletter - we've got albums, singles, books and GIGS to talk about this time, so let's get to it!

Thursday 16 May - Gwdihw, Cardiff
Total Hero Team preview

Saturday 25 & Sunday 26 May - The Public, West Bromwich
Now We Are Weekender, with The Validators playing Saturday 3:40pm and Total Hero Team about 2pm on the Sunday.
details HERE:

Check for more information.

Thanks very much to everyone who downloaded a copy of the album - we sold 104 copies in the end and, after Bandcamp fees, raised 463 for the PBH Free Fringe, a very respectable sum I think. Well done team!

We've now got full confirmation of our dates and venue for the Edinburgh Fringe - we'll be performing at 6pm everyday from August 3rd to 17th Upstairs at The Wilkie House - this is the new name for the GRV, where we did "Dinosaur Planet" in 2010!

We're also confirmed for the Buxton Fringe on July 13 and 14th, Greater Manchester Fringe on July 14th and the Camden Fringe on the 23rd and 24th of August. We'll hopefully be playing a few other places in the summer too, so do come along if you can - full details at .

Talking of "Total Hero Team", you can hear a few excerpts on the exciting NEW Totally Acoustic Podcast, which is available to download right now, right here:

It also features Enderby's Room, who were (and are) rather wonderful. This was a special one-off show, but I'm hoping to book another one sometime later in the year. Stay tuned!

We've delivered the final mix of the theme tune to "A Brief History Of Time Travel" to the PRODUCERS, and everyone seems jolly pleased with how it turned out. The theme tune, "I Want To Find Out How It Ends", will be given free to people who were part of their Kickstarter campaign (along with the various new instrumental tracks we've recorded), but we're planning to release it as a single too. Current plan is to put it out when the show gets broadcast, hopefully, around August, but I shall doubtless GO ON ENDLESSLY about it when I know for sure!

As you may have noticed, we're getting VERY close to the 100th edition of the newsletter, so I thought it might be nice to give away a FREE GIFT. I'm currently putting together an ALBUM of COVER VERSIONS which will be available EXCLUSIVELY to people who are subscribed to the newsletter when we do the 100th issue. There'll be nearly 20 tracks, many of them never released before, so if that sounds good do please try and steer clear of unsubscribing!

If you've enjoyed Mr John Allison's artwork for "Dinosaur Planet" and "Total Hero Team" - and who, in their right mind, wouldn't? - then you might like to know that his book "Bad Machinery Volume 1: The Case of the Team Spirit" is available to buy RIGHT NOW. I'd heartily recommend it as it's BEAUTIFUL, also FUNNY - you can get it from Comic Shops or indeed, The Amazon, HERE:

And I think that's enough excitement for now - thanks for listening, and see you next time!
