Brian is currently working on his 6th Solo album, 15 years in the making tentatively titled Tentatively Titled.

Brian recently performed at the Fairport Science Convention in Cologne where he staged an entirely digital concert on 1000 plasma screens across Cologne. Sadly, there was a technical fault and only three worked and the sound was out of sync. Still, he entered the Guinness Record Book.

[Editor's note: FAIRPORT SCIENCE CONVENTION is a science convention looking at the latest technologies around the world, from FEDGE the bending breezeblocks, HOMOSEXUAL FRIDGES and STAY FRESH NAAN BREAD. The first FAIRPORT SCIENCE CONVENTION was held in 1956 in Cromer and revealed the first ever roll of tin foil.]

Brian attended the premier of Wolverine - X Men Beginnings with his lovely wife Bupa and his son Krispin. When asked what he thought of it by one of the a GMTV presenter on the red carpet afterwards he said "a bit far fetched".
