many thanks to all who have helped me to make the record: Robin, Hans, Joachim, Jim, Roger, Mark, Steve, Danny and Major for their playing and singing, Roger and Chris for their knowledge of buttons, knobs and stuff, Kif Guitars for, well, guitars, and everyone else who I’ve told crap jokes to and (occasionally) laughed.
for Shelagh, who always inspires me to be better
