21st December 1999

I hope everybody got their mp3 and enjoyed it. Those who haven't received it let me know and I will do another mail out in the New Year because I don't have time to do it now as I am going away. Next year I hope to be giving away a lot more freebies but the logistics of e-mailing them to people is a bit hit and miss because some of you have a restriction on the size of file etc and I can see it being a hassle for people who receive these long files if they don't particularly want them so I have decided to set up a few little spin off sites and give the mp3's away from there. This helps me in that I don't cane my bandwidth and it also gives you a choice of places to visit and pick them up and review them etc and this will help spread word of "The King Of Pop". I will let you know where these sites are and what tracks are available from there. This will take a little time to set up but when it is it will be worth the wait as there will be plenty of goodies on offer. The "Crawling" mp3 I sent was from a session which included "King For A Day", "A Girl Like You", "Broke", and two other unheard tracks called "The Price Of Fame" and "Hit Me One More Time" which is not a cover of Britney!!! There will also be a few live tracks given away also as I am going to be doing a few gigs here and there and it will be my way of making it up to those who can't be there in the flesh. For anyone who will be in Jersey over Xmas I will be playing an unplugged set at The Royal Hotel in St Helier on the 27th and 28th December. I would just like to wish you all a great Christmas and an even better New Year. I would like to thank everyone who has supported this venture this year and I would like to welcome those who will be joining the ranks of the converted for the next century. Have a good one!!!!!!

16th December 1999

Hello everybody, sorry about the delay in updating the wise words but I have just got a new PC and did not have the necessary software to edit my pages so I had to resort to booting up the old one and doing on that. Well what have I been doing in the missing weeks. Firstly I must inform everyone that the show on Radio 2 is not about me but me talking about a certain famous producer and telling everyone how he did his stuff with FGTH. I don't know how much of the stuff I said will be used but I am sure one of you will tell me if I should miss it. I went up to Liverpool last weekend and did an interview with Crash FM, which will be broadcast next year. I now have quite a collection of interviews from various radio stations and I will edit them together next year when I have sussed out how to broadcast them over the web so watch this space for that one. I have just booked a gig at The Life Cafe in Liverpool on the 16th Feb and will be trying to organise some more during Feb so if any of you would like me to come to where you live then e-mail me with a suggested venue and phone number and I will try to come and see you. I am looking to play small venues and not all of the gigs will feature Hairy Pie but hopefully most of them will. I will be sending out a Xmas mp3 to all those who have signed the guest book since this site has been up and that will probably happen this weekend so your phone bills are kept to a minimum. I am off to Jersey for the holidays and hopefully I will be doing a couple of unplugged gigs at The Royal Hotel in St Helier so if there are any "beans" reading this then watch your local press. There will be another update before Xmas but if you won't get to see it then I will take the opportunity to wish you all the best for Xmas and may your 2000 be better than your 99.
