Thanks to Phil Sparks for alerting us to the appearance of Ian on BBC Merseyside with Billy Butler.
He chats with Billy, then plays Scott Walker's "Montague Terrace (in Blue)". He does a bit of Bob Dylan singing the Beatles. Then, he continues with
a bit of a giggle about Sgt Bilko, and a plug for the Lomax gig. (See the gigs list below). Finishes up with The Icicle Works "High Time"
dedicated to Helen. "Is there someone holding onto you?..." He mentions The Icicle Works gigs in the autumn, including O2 gig on 26 September.

After over a year of sleeping, we're back at it. For those who may have wondered,
I took a bit of a break from the fan page for personal reasons. I plan to be back for
a bit, so doing some housecleaning. A few things need to be worked on.
Among the first is that this site is now on its way to being phone and tablet friendly.
So check it out on your phone and please give feedback. As always, there's a backlog of discography
corrections and additions, so please do contact me with those, particularly if I've missed
something you sent in.
Ian's new album Eclectic Warrior is out, and physical copies have all be shipped
for UK pledgers. Ian reports that
they're now working on shipping for overseas pledgers, and hope to have it completed by the end of this week.
Gig list updated, too.

eclectic warrior digital release
Starting Monday, the 18th, Eclectic Warrior will be available online for all
Pledge Music. Ian says there were some last minute mix decisions, so there's a
real rush to get it out. All pledgers get ready!
So the 2013 Gigs are well on their way.
What about the new album, Eclectic Warrior?
Seems that Ian scheduled some time in a studio that promptly closed shop
before he and the band were ready to record. Then, it was tough to find
studio time in town as everything else was booked up. That said, once
they got into the studio, they made the best of it, and as has been his
style recently, he hit it hard and fast, and it's all pretty much said
and done. Look for it to come soon. If you haven't reserved your copy as
well as taken advantage of the exclusive goodies, head on over to Ian's
Pledge Music page and sign up. You can pledge for as little as
£8, and get an electronic copy of the album plus all the online
swag. Just a little more and you can get the CD version. What a
