Well, another year is almost over, the heartache has been duly shared far and wide and hopefully we have brought a little reconciliation to the world. We are now hunkering down in the kitchen to eat, drink and bicker our way through the festive season while getting excited with so much to look forward to in 2015 …
Lots of good stuff coming up next year starting with the tour of Germany, Austria, Switzerland & Holland in February, MDC shows on the west coast of the USA in March and April, and the recording and releasing of the new MDC album too.
Also lots more happening with “The Other Half.” The show is being recorded as an album in January for release in late Spring with Uk tours to follow in May and in September. Also look out for the show, so far, coming to these festivals… Edinburgh (Aug), Laugharne (April) & Brighton (May) and many more tbc. The first TOH show of 2015 takes place on Feb 2nd at The Stand in Newcastle. More details at www.thestand.co.uk
