hi mark ,funny that you should see them in the paper, nice people, they came over our way for a bit of camping and played a free gig in our local (the cornhill inn Rhayader) and came back a couple of weeks later for a paid gig. i happened to drop in with a new build to show my mates and they bought it ..i'd only finished it the day before.
