Sep 2015 - UN T-Shirts, 2nd Album Release date, Sportsbook of the Year results...
During September I've been getting tracks ready for the next studio session @ Manor Park that should hopefully complete the second album in early November, with a release date in December.
So here's a bit of news about that, along with other developments...
» FINALLY.... T-Shirts are coming.
OK, it's been too long, but now we have the first T-Shirt design coming at the end of the month.
For anyone who wants 'em, they should be shipping at the end of October.
We'll have the following T-Shirt styles...
FEMALE Spaghetti Bella Canvas (Medium, Large)
FEMALE Junior Fit Ladies (Small, Medium, Large)
MALE Gildan (Medium, Large, X-Large)
So, thanks to Monica Franceschi for the design. She's worked with a bunch of major artists in Italy, and I saw recently some of her etched vinyl being posted by most of Paul Weller's band. Good company.
We appreciate it a lot, anyone who's going to buy one. You're helping us out a bunch to keep progressing & hopefully you'll love the design.
Here's a closer look at the design...
» UPDATE: 2nd Album.
I'll be at Manor Park Studio again for a couple of dates in early November, with the plan to finish off the track list for the second album. All being well, we're planning to release it with a lightly penciled in release date of Friday 11th December 2015. More info to come on the latest news feed.
» UPDATE: George Best - Der ungezähmte Fußballer.
Recently the Sportsbook of the Year awards were held in Germany, where they announced from the long list of 200 books the final shortlist of 12.
"George Best - Der ungezähmte Fußballer" made No.3, including the couple of pages of interview that author Dietrich Schulze-Marmeling did with me about Best, Northern Ireland & "George Best City".
