It looks like my first solo EP is going to be out soon. After 3 months of fighting Pneumonia “uwe – alive and well” follows a request from my agent who thinks that there’s enough of you possums out there who want some of my “unplugged stuff” from live work. Well it’ll contain a few numbers from the Edinburgh Exchange gig in December last year.
It's also the first time I'm using my "real" name on a recording. After all the shit I had to put up with record companies and publishers over the years, I have only this to say tho them; with the words of Bender: "Kiss My Shiny Metal Robot Ass!" I own my name, you might think you do, but you're wrong! It's on my birth certificates and on my passport. I signed an agreement with you guys when I was 17 years old and didn't know better, now I'm 43, and lots of opportunities have passed me, but - no more, I've had enough. Sue me if you have the time and money, but don't bully me, cause I ain't being bullied. Email me if you like to find out more about what I'm on about...

Happy New Year! - What can I say, it’s been a while since my last entry. The problem is that I’ve been traveling so much and had so little time to update my blog. I went to Brno in the Czech Republic twice since my last entry and I loved it there. In fact I love it there so much that I’ll be there again in a couple of weeks. Yes – I met somebody there I want to see again and again, but that is the case for (almost) everybody I met there. So here you go. Mike and I have decided to spread the Scottish virus a little and Brno seems like the perfect place. They already have a Scottish Enthusiast bunch there called “Scotsky Pes – Scotch Dog” and they celebrate just about every Scottish feast there is, hence we’re off there again for “Burns Nicht” on the 26th Jan (I know Burns Nicht (Nicht = night in Scotts) is really on the 25th but people work etc). I can’t wait to see all of my friends there again and one in particular.

Have a great time Possums
