Oops; didn't relise my cookie had expired before posting that lot . . sorry, more haste, less speed.

If I failed to give away who I am you'll find it fixed here. And the para. about Tony Hall should have read:

Tony Hall works as a cartoonist for an East Anglian regional paper (and elswhere), and a very fine one he is (his works go under the name of Fieldvole). He's also an outstanding melodeon player. Club organisers - it's well worth booking him for the sight of his arriving by motorcycle with boxes strapped everywhere, but his performance won't disappoint, either. He emerged all too briefly from his usual obscurity to peform (on record and on tour) as part of the original Silly Sisters band. Out of that project also emerged his first recording, Fieldvole Music on which he had Nic Jones and Johnny Moignihan (sorry, I can't spell!) guesting for him. It is a classic recording - which, sadly, has been Bulmered. He made a second recording Mr Universe some 20 years later, which is excellent but doesn't match the earlier one.

Cheers!
