'I really enjoyed the company of the chaps on this album, to write together, arrange the tunes, record, see the project through was fantastic. I think there's plenty of great players out there, but to find the ones with a positive attitude and seemingly never ending supply of great ideas is bloody great. Who's round is it?' ~Simon 'HONEYBOY' Hickling
