'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
