it’s been a while…but the renewed interest in the band following the ‘Everything’ box set prompted us to rethink the old adage that ‘it’s not going to happen’, wondering instead whether it COULD happen- ‘us’ at that point was Dick and Jasper talking in the back of the van after a Citizen Fish gig. The main thing was finding someone who could adequately fill the enormous gap left when Nige passed on- we asked Alex, who plays trumpet for CF [and played guitar and sang for Bender], as he had the ability, and the urge… Bill was only too keen to unpack his kit, and in January we had the first of several practices. And it’s working! We’ll be doing a UK tour in October in as much free time as we currently have, and trying to reach as many areas as possible. See you somewhere on the way!

Crap on the Radio
Oh flip oh gosh oh golly gee We really shocked the local rock disc jock Oh crumbs oh boy oh sugar me The poor bloke nearly went right off his block We only told him what we did and didn't like And then we used that word and he jumped on the mike You can't say that on the radio You can't say that on the radio yes we all do it but you can't refer to it You can't say that on the radio
