Unfortunately, he was locked up for 9 days whilst GMP investigated his claim, during which time, his flat was burnt down.
We’re up for anything, musically speaking, as long as it has ukulele in it. We can’t play covers though unless they are public domain.
We like to record live sessions whenever we can so if you can get to Manchester, drop us a line. I’ll even bake a cake. If you can’t get to Manchester, perhaps we could record a telephone interview instead?
Get in touch, let us know what you’re up to and send us your stuff!
