Ain't No Stopping Us
Myopia Album lanuch £5 adv £7 OTD - 16+
Very few people seem to understand the concept of ‘Living on Sixes’. They often strive for perfection and can’t accept it when things inevitably go wrong. Something or someone is always to blame, rather than living with life’s flaws. It’s okay to be living at 6/10 because perfection, as much as we want it, doesn’t exist. We make the best of what we have.
That’s the theme behind the album. It was written from start to finish over a pretty damaging experience in my life that made me come out the other side all the better for it. You can’t have good times without bad times and people seem to forget that.
While we consider ourselves to be a progressive rock band, no song on the album is the same. Everything has been made to sound original and exciting and that’s always been the way I planned it.
I started writing Living on Sixes in 2017 and it’s finally ready. So don’t overthink it, just enjoy.

THE SMALL FAKERS - The NO.1 SMALL FACES show
The Small Faces are without any shadow of doubt, one of the most sensational British bands of the 1960s, and are as much a part of the soundtrack to the fabbest decade ever as The Beatles, The Stones, The Kinks, The Who, or anyone else for that matter!
Hitting the charts as teenage mods with their very first disc, 'Whatcha Gonna Do About It', the four diminutive Cockneys went on to release numerous timeless classics including, ‘Sha-La-La-La-Lee’, ‘Here Come The Nice’, ‘Itchycoo Park’ and ‘Lazy Sunday’.
The band are almost as famous for their groundbreaking psychedelic LP, ‘Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake’, which topped the UK’s album charts in 1968. Released a whole year before The Who’s ‘Tommy’, it’s widely regarded as rock’s very first concept album.
The Small Faces split in 1969. Lead singer Steve Marriott – recognised as having one of the greatest ‘blue-eyed soul’ voices ever – went on to have huge international success in the 70s with Humble Pie. The rest of the band – Ronnie Lane on bass, Ian McLagan on keyboards and Kenney Jones on drums – hooked up with Ronnie Wood (later to join The Rolling Stones) and Rod Stewart and had massive worldwide success of their own as The Faces.
Interest in The Small Faces never went away though, and was re-ignited by Jam frontman Paul Weller’s fascination with them in the late 70s, and again in the 90s by Britpop bands like Blur, Oasis and Primal Scream name checking them in interviews as a massive influence. More recently, bands like The Arctic Monkeys and The Kaiser Chiefs have declared themselves to be huge fans too.
But while fans of other great 60's bands had tributes to their heroes to see, to recreate the original live experience, The Small Faces were unrepresented. Until 2007 that is, when they got their very own tribute at long last - THE SMALL FAKERS.

Through the Decades with Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly
Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly both grew up in the same part of Texas. They recorded their earlier work in the Norman Petty Studios in Clovis, New Mexico, even at one point recording the same songs
‘An empty cup’ (and a broken date) as well as ‘You’ve Got Love’ both written by Roy Orbison.
The two Artists brought a unique Texas influence into their music and through their creative writing for both an individual sound was born!
Roy Orbison went on to write so many songs including ‘Only the Lonely’ & ‘Crying’, and Buddy Holly in his short Career showed his writing talents would of gone on to match any songwriter in the world, which earned him a place (13th) in ‘The Rolling Stone’ ‘100 Greatest Artist of all Time’!
Darren Page’s vocal abilities have brought a reputation that always delivers top quality to entertain, but Darren’s secret love in music is Roy Orbison which sits very comfortable in Darren Page’s voice range.
Marc Robinson has played the part of Buddy Holly all over the world and all over Great Britain; he performed in ‘Buddy ‘The Musical and numerous other shows, with partners he founded ‘In Dreams & ‘Rockin on Heavens Door’, he also has many TV appearances to his name.
Marc’s latest show ‘Through the Decades with Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly’ will deliver a feel good factor with all the hits from…
I Drove all Night, Mean Woman Blues, Pretty Woman, Heartbeat, Peggy Sue, It Doesn’t Matter Anymore & Raining in my Heart, to name but a few!
After playing in Europe and all-over Great Britain Darren Page joined forces with Marc Robinson, and as they have both dedicated their careers to Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly this will prove to be a two-hour uplifting Rock n Roll Show, pure nostalgia with all their Hits and a few earlier ones too!
Will Rock n Roll ever Die? That’ll be the Day!
