All apologies for the shameless self-promo, but part of the joy of writing songs is in sharing the bloody things, right?

I'm Steve Robinson, transplanted English closet-folkie, ex-Roger McGuinn sideman and the former voice of Florida's lovable folk-rock underachievers, The Headlights. My partner in grime is the gifted and award-winning songwriter, Ed Woltil of The Ditchflowers, and we're set to release a collaborative album known as "Cycle" on our little dysfunctional family/label, Sunshine Drenchy Records. Can't believe we got Dave M. to play with us. What was he thinking?

Here is a link to the lead-off track,
Love Somebody which according to one reviewer sounds like XTC doing Bob Dylan. I'll take that in a heartbeat!

Thanks for the listen, michaelr.
Wish i could take credit for the video; all I did was take the scissors to an old Buster Keaton short. God bless public domain!

Does he ever! It can be a bit risky having a drummer play over already-recorded tracks; it can sometimes feel a bit forced and lifeless. No such worries with Dave though. He made the track move in a cool way. Never tries to dazzle you, but when he plays a fill it always seems to be the perfect one.

As well as the Fairport stuff, I knew he'd played on a ridiculous number of sessions (Cat Stevens/George Harrison/Sir Paul/Nick Drake among them)but it wasn't until I heard him on XTC's Nonsuch record in 92 that I really listened hard. Man, I love his playing. On top of that a real gentleman. Still pinching myself that he bothered with us actually...
