I'll try and find out where and how the vinyl is available. The tracks are instrumental. I think they're very cool. Very MJ.

Spoke to Mick, who says the record will be available through the Vinyl Factory website. He was proud (or maybe a bit embarrassed) to have kept the price down to 30 quid, as the accompanying art book cost a lot to produce. It's cool stuff.

Shame they're instrumental, feels like I haven't heard Mick sing for ages.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Cool. In addition to being the producer of Kitty, Daisy & Lewis' new album, MJ got a photo credit as well.

Interested in seeing his art as well as listening to his music.

Thanks for the update, sonny; the overall package with booklet looks intriguing and I like that version of 'pretty thing' even if it's miles away from Bo Diddley's original.
I've taken the plunge, although be warned that you get whacked with extra tax to take the total cost beyond the £30 I was expecting.... (£25 for the LP, £5 postage INCLUDING VAT.... Then a further £5 or so)

Hmmm I don't want to be a killjoy and I wish Mick all the best with his latest project but those three instrumentals I just listened to were very uninspiring.

Please get back soon to what you do best Mick. I can't wait for Mick to play some Rock 'n' Roll.

My sentiments entirely, just sounded like pointless noodling to me. This is Mick fucking Jones for chrissake, just make some proper songs with real drums, that's all I ask.

Not bad, Jonesy. Not bad..

Those riffs would sound better sung, though, probably.
