A couple of years ago CW and band visited Lewis Durham’s (of Kitty, Daisy and Lewis) home studio in Kentish Town, London to cut a couple of tracks, one for a Mojo magazine Beatles covermount.
Those recordings are now finally available to own on lovely 7″ and 78 RPM 10″ on Lewis’ own Evangelist Records. You can purchase your copy direct from the source HERE , and avoid those over-inflated prices that we’ve spotted on Ebay.
Channel 4 last night released this footage. Early analysis suggests that it is not a hoax.

You can find details of his other shows and links to buy tickets on My Space. Straight off the plane he popped in the office to play and talk to Mark Ellen, David Hepworth and Fraser Lewry… read in full
