Thursdays G & Tippers Show!

Hello everyone!

In honour of this particularly horrible ‘F*ck up’, this weeks show is dedicated to the monster mess up.

Please watch… Torres Miss…

So when have you been faced with a metaphorical open goal, and blazed it in to row Z? It could be a marriage proposal gone wrong, or an office presentation that ended with you clearing your desk.

We want to hear about YOUR cock ups.

Tweet us at www.twitter.com/gandtippers or email gandtippers@vectisradio.com.

Also, we’ll be performing challenges, prank calls and a competition to win two tickets to see the top Jimi hendrix tribute act on the planet.

Don’t forget to tune in to the G & Tippers Show. 7pm. Thursday night. Vectis Radio.

Book.

Hey everyone,

Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet on the book front lately. It is completely written. I just need to sort photos but am having a nightmare.

Most of the pictures are trapped on a corrupted hard drive in Tim’s PC. We’re working on it though!

It will be sorted though I promise!!! xxx

G and Tippers This Week…

YoYo!

The theme for Thursdays show is ‘Celebrities!’

We want to know who you’ve met? What they were like? Lovely and down to Earth, or a complete cock?

We’ll also have another feature where we reveal some of the nonsense that pass through the lips of ‘so called’ A listers.

The challenges are back this week as well phone pranks and the ‘Good Karma Police’.

Tune in this Thursday, 7-10pm on www.vectisradio.com.

Back in the studio.

Oi!

I’m back in the studio tomorrow. Can’t wait to get in and start work on track 4 of my album. We’re three tracks down and the sound is already starting to come out. It’s obviously making it easier when we know what direction we’re going in. It’s different, I’ll let on that much.

The lads at Studio 5a have been great. Claydon worked with me on ‘It Gets Worse At Night’ so knows what I’m all about. And Guy has been awesome and brought forward some wicked ideas and a new approach.

There are some parts of this record that will remind you of early 90s grunge, parts that sound very poppy and other bits that resemble the XX. It’s definitely going to be different. I sincerely hope you’ll like it.

As soon as I’m done with the record, I’ll be straight back on the road across the UK and Europe. I’ll keep you up to date on all progress and hopefully get a few rough clips of the tunes on here as we go.

Stay lucky. x

This Weeks G & Tippers Show…

Hello!

This weeks G and Tippers theme is ‘Practical jokes’. We’ve all done one and we’ve all been on the receiving end of them. What we want, is the best of the best.

Tune in! x

 

Recording starts again…

Hey everyone,

I’m back in the studio again in the morning. I can’t wait to crack on with the recording of my second album. It feels like a billion years since ‘It Gets Worse At Night’ was recorded in London.

This new record is already one track down as me and the lads at Studio 5b laid Adrienne down a few weeks ago. That sounded rude.

I’ll get updates and song clips up as soon as I can.

Swan Fest this Saturday…

Hey everyone,

I’m playing a FREE family festival this Saturday (20th) in Oxfordshire. When I say free family, I mean it’s free entry and child friendly. I don’t mean you can turn up and leave with a wife and two kids for free. That simply wouldn’t work.

The Festival is called Swan Fest and is at The Swan in Sutton Courtenay, near Abingdon, Oxon.

I’m on stage fro 2:15 until 3pm. Should be a craic with loads of good bands playing. And it’s all free. That helps.

If you’re about, come on down.

I’ll be playing loads of new material as I’m back in the studio on Tuesday. Exciting!

I’ve only gone and done it…

Hello everyone,

This Saturday I swam the Solent from mainland England to the Isle of Wight. I don’t normally blow my own trumpet, due to both my character and my ribs. But I am uber happy with myself for achieving this. I might go so far as to say that I’m even a little smug.

The point of the swim was to raise money for a special little boy called Lewis Mighty. Lewis needs treatment for a form of cancer called Neuroblastoma. It is a type of cancer that attacks under 5’s mainly. Hopefully the money raised from this swim will go some way to help Lewis get the treatment he so desperately needs.

I left Hurst Castle on the mainland at 9am and landed back on the Island an hour and twenty minutes later. The distance was meant to be a mile and a half, roughly 90 lengths of a regular twenty metre pool. Unfortunately a 4 knot tide had other ideas.

I ended up being dragged further and further from my landing destination and ended up swimming over 5000 metres in that time.

I was meant to be landing at Fort Albert, then that was impossible so Fort Victoria was the target. The tide once again had other ideas and I ended up being dragged way past Yarmouth and landed nearer to Shalfleet. 3 miles down the coast. It wasn’t ideal as people were waiting at Fort Victoria and I could have done with the support.

But to be honest, if I’d failed I would have to had walked down my main High Street butt naked that night. That was added incentive to get me across the line and on to Island soil.

I owe a massive debt of gratitude to Andy and Mandy Toms who supplied the support boat and made the whole thing possible. Also a big thanks to Tom Fastnedge for letting me use his wetsuit. Without it, I would have frozen to death.

But most of all, a massive thank you to all those that have donated and continue to donate. We’re looking on course to raise £2000 for Lewis which is a major achievement.

It’s much appreciated.

Lots of love. G x
