… let me put you in the picture!!

Alreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!!  I know I aint had much time to update the site a lot lately ..apart from my quick Switzerland trip blogging..  so I’d thought id give you all a heads up why…

Of course some of you will already know ..but.. for those that dont!! Then here is the beef!! hahaha

First off is the band im in “Stolen Tom” ..  has been going really well lately and we’ve been busy little bunnies recording and releasing and promoting our Debut album “DOO DAN DOO DILLY” which went live online and in a few retailers on the 18th March.. You can download it HERE

We had an album launch party @ Bubbles in Ashington which went down a storm and then the big gig 2 days after at the O2 Academy in Newcastle on the 20th with support from Derek Allan from Clear Blue Skies. The O2 was by far one of the best turnouts and gigs yet for the band..  lets hope theres more to come!

Heres some links to the band sites and album incase you have been hidden in a dark hole some where..





The other thing is that I joined forces with the magical man of mystery..Derek Allan from the band, Clear Blue Skies to create a new Acoustic Duo called “WE STEAL FLYERS”, and we’ve been spending a bit time trying to get a set together and playing our first couple of gigs..  The first was supporting Rod Clements from the band world famous band Lindisfarne at Rothbury Roots.. then the second supporting Hayseed Dixie and Ed Tudor Pole on the main stage of the O2 Academy in front of roughly 1500 people.. which was awesome.. not bad for our first 2 gigs huh?  Were also recording our first EP in look out for that!!

Heres some links to some info and websites about We Steal Flyers..





So lots of stuff happening.. just not all concentrated on Shagpile..  but dont worry.. I aint stopping solo gigs and my 3rd album is still on its way due later this year….  I just have lots more things to keep up with… and lots more writing to do and loads more gigs!!!

Hope this clears a lot up for you all!!

..and dont forget to check out the other sites and stuff .. and if you like what you hear..  get on the mailing lists or give us a subb on youtube or subscribe to the blogs,add us on myspace or add us on twitter!! Its nice to hook up!!

..thanks again for all your support!! Shaggy

Travelling Hobo Shaggy!

Ive just came back from my spell of gigs in Luzern in Switzerland..   What a time I had away and what an amazing place with the best people..

Me , The Legend...Bill and the Flintmiester

I didnt really know what to expect at all as this was my first time away gigging in another country but I have to say..  this definately wont be my last..

The whole experience was great and I managed to make some great contacts from it all so il definately be back over there soon.

Heres a video of me playing in Legends bar which has to be the best bar in Luzern..its a bit dark as its from a little handycam but youll get the idea and theres a few clips from the train ride home in there too!! ..  A massive thanks to Bill for helping to make this possible..  I couldnt have done this without his help and also Flinty for helping to arrange it all.

And a few photos too ..

NE1-FM 102.5 Update….

Soooo……. Yesterday was my visit to the NE1FM Radio Station in Newcastle as part of an interview and some live tracks. I managed to talk T-shirt Terry into coming through and doing some photos with me in the studio too which you can see below!

Me 'n' Mark @ NE1FM 102.5

Me 'n' Mark @ NE1FM 102.5

After driving around looking for the place we finally give in to phoning the studio and sounding like eejiots and the nice fellas from NE1 walked around the corner to meet us at the garage. Which was about 10 steps in walking distance from the place… DOH!!!

We met Mark who was going to be doing the interview, had a tab and then dived into the studio..



All was going well and I managed to squeeze in 3 live tracks.,. “All inside”, “ Judy let go” which is a new track which is going to be released on my 3rd album which will be available later this year. I then attempted a cover of a Wacko Jacko track and started in the completely wrong place and made a right bollocks of it..  hahah..  It was all good though .. and I played the “that’s the thing about live music” card!!

Marc was a great bloke and introduced me to some new great music too which I look forward to checking out online about the net.



WHERES THE  KEYS??? … At the beginning of the night mark gave the keys to Terry to go and grab a CD out the car for me and after the show was finished … Mark came out of the studio to let us out … “Wheres the keys??” ..  No-one had the keys on them and we were locked in for another 30mins after that .. looking around for them in the studio and other rooms while Mark kept running back in and out to cue a track up in between spoaching about like a mad man..   Terry finally found them near the doors on the floor  and we finally got out and got our trophy for finding them… A KFC ON THE WAY HOME!! Finger licking good!!



Once again.. it was a great night and I finally got to meet up with the guys n gals from NE1 FM..  Unfortunately there was a bit of a problem with the stream and online listeners couldnt log in from the website so my phone was reeeeeeeeeeeed hot with…. apart from that I had a cracking night.

Mark doing his thang!!
