hello fantastic fans,…

well after a trip to the doctors with my mum,… a visit to altrincham general hospital,.. and a home visit from the doctor,… i now know what’s wrong !

it goes back to the 90’s when i got a football knee injury playing for my sunday footbal team “the timperley bigshorts” (does anyone remember me doing some concerts on cructches ?? and one in a wheelchair ???) …. anyway,… it was a 50/50 ball with mark radcliffe’s brother ~~~ and i lost !!! and now it’s come back to haunt me !!!

i’ve got to maybe have a camera put in my knee (how very space 1999 is that !!!) and maybe a operation ??? ,… but fingers crossed all will be fine !

there is a date added to my shows with john cooper clarke @ the barfly in camden on the 8th october (straight off the plane from new york !) and starts a series of concerts i’ll be doing with the great man…
