      Cheers for the invaluable advice Tom. We're being repeatedly told by radio DJs in Yorkshire that we've made a special album with 'You Get Wot You Pay For' and so want to give it every chance of being a success by planning well in advance. It's taken us almost four years to complete it so a few extra months ain't gonna hurt. That's why we've just joined BBC Introducing in the hope that we can pick up some added support. We plan to start despatching advance cd copies of our album around July ready for a Sept 2010 release and accompanying tour. If anyone wants a listen... - enjoy!
