Howdy to Joe Palmer of The Peelers - good to hear you're having fun in the sun while I languish in rainy Highams Park. I occasionally hear of sightings of the great Tom Madden - but I never seem to be in his vicinity. So far on this thread I think we've had him running a B and B in Torquay (shades of Basil Fawlty) and also living in Manchester.

Last time I looked, Joe, 'Banished Misfortune', the Peelers album had become something of an underground hit and could fetch a decent price, even in Japan. (I know someone who paid £150 for a copy about ten years ago.) So if you have any left over, maybe you might think of releasing them into the 2nd hand market on a slow drip.

I was in a pub in Clapham North back in 1980 and 'Broken Down Squatter' came on the jukebox. Given that the clientele was mainly Jamaican, I was surprised, to say the least.

Still playing - whatever takes my fancy.

Best wishes
