See HMX this Sat for Free!

I might head up to either Rakinos or Wintergarden tonight, as funk bands are playing in both venues! Joy! Tomorrow is the first and only HMX gig for ages - no more gigs are planned so its a rare chance to see the band as we have scaled back the number of shows we do. Also, (thanks to loads of hard work by me and my girlfriend) the first solo single under my own tomachi brand is finally back from the printer :) I'll be adding a weblink to this AMU really soon so you can hear the mp3s. Let me know what you think! If you know any good radio DJs who are into funk, please put me in touch and I might send them a promo CD.
