OOTG has now been disbanded for over 2 years and it still amazes the number of people who still write in to this site on the rare occassion I get round to checking it. We get so many requests for the album and videos that I thought I´d take this rare occassion, of finally having internet access and the files on hand, to get round to uploading our 2007 album "Talking About Thinking About Saying It" and videos from one of our last gigs at King George´s Hall in Blackburn in 2007.
The songs are all set to be available for free download and I´ve put them up in the order they appear on the album. Don´t ask me how you download them, I have no idea but apparently you can now.
I look back on my time with OOTG with nothing but fondness now. You can still find the girls doing their stuff at http://www.myspace.com/secondhandwingsmusic ... pop on over and check them out. In the meantime, enjoy this selection of songs - probably the best creative output I ever had the pleasure of being a part of... keep in touch
Finally getting round to updating some stuff. Got a real treat on my personal site now. First is the short film "The Lovers" made in 2006. This is the first film I did and is now available in full at 15minutes long. I've never uploaded this for a number of reasons but hope you all enjoy it now.
Second, I have the video to Sharkies Bone Symphony by To The Bones which I did just before I left. It's had some airplay on MTV 2. Hope you all enjoy.

I know. I....m horrible at keeping in touch. So I..ve started a travel blog/autobiography of sorts. Check it out and let me know what you think :)
Yup it's true...
I'm off. Quitting the ol' blarney and off on my adventures again. It's the old 4 1/2 year itch that seems to have dogged me my entire life. I always seem to stick somewhere about that long before moving halfway across the world to try something new.
This time: Spain. Yup I've taken a job as a Canvas campsite courier on the Costa Brava. It's a career regression of sorts, I started as a lawyer and I've been working my way down. Well that's one way to look at it. The other is that the quality of life factor is going up :)
Debts paid, no mortgage, no commitments - no responsibility. It may seem like I'm not trying hard enough but the truth is that I was never born to be Mr Gray - hangin out 9 to 5 making just enough money to survive. If that's going to be the case - I say do it on a beach, watch the sunsets and don't let life pass you by.
Can't express how excited I am to be leaving. It's been a tough few years - but it's had some of the best pay offs too. I can't tell you where I'm going - but I can promise i'll have a lot of fun getting there.
Peace and love to all you beautiful people. I'm off to change the world.
