I have been writing a few tracks for the new album.
If you want to check out the new songs, I have been posting live acoustic demos on my YouTube channel.

Here is an old Kody song, that our old roadie, Taffy, managed to stumble upon.
My pal Tim has put it up on his Soundcloud account.
It’s obviously rough as it came from a digital camera at a show at West One Four, in London.
We’re probably drunk, so go easy on us!
If you’ve bought the book, How NOT to be a Rockstar, and wondered what Kody sounded like, here you go.
I don’t normally post stuff like this here. I tend to try and keep it more of music only page.
But sometimes you see something, and it needs spreading about.
Obviously I’m lucky enough to have been born with a functioning brain, so when the Media says Countries like Iran, North Korea & Libya are the enemy, I’m pretty aware that’s it’s probably the reverse of that.
This film was shown on North Korean TV to their citizens, and completely sums up Western ‘civilisation’ in 90 minutes. It truly is incredible.
Hope you’re all well.
I am playing a show at The Castle Hotel, in Manchester on August 2nd.
We were giving away tickets to the intimate show, but before I had a chance to post it here, they went. I’m amazingly flattered by the interest.
I’ve been writing a fair bit recently, and putting songs together for what will be my third album.
They’re rough at this stage, and I won’t be back in the studio to lay them down, until next year.
But I’ve been recording some rough live demos of them, on my mobile, and posting on my Youtube channel.
I’d love to hear what you reckon of them.

On Thursday I went to see the legend that is Steve Conte. He was playing with his band Steve Conte & The Crazy Truth.
Steve emailed me just before the show asking me to learn ‘Pills’ by his original band, the New York Dolls.
The NY Dolls are renowned for being one of the most influential punk bands of all time. So obviously, I was shitting myself, and downing Budvar like it was going out of fashion.
Here is a video my Mrs took on her dog and bone.
I’m lucky enough to once again be on the bill, for the Isle of Wight Festival.
I have two slots confirmed, with one or two more to be finalized.
I’m performing on the Life’s A Beach Stage, sponsored by Boxfresh.
I’ll be playing at 5pm on Friday the 14th June, and again at 2pm on Saturday the 15th.
The stage is great, with sand being imported to create a beach, with deckchairs, cocktail bars etc.
As soon as I know any more about other performances at this years festival, I’ll let you know.
