Please Stand Up charts

Blimey… in at #34 in the Official UK Top Singles 40 this week is the Please Stand Up single. Some would say that is quite disappointing, others would say it is 9 places higher than Daniel Bedingfield. Talking of singles, Amazon is listing How Will I Ever Find My Way Home? as the next single. Maybe that will fare better in the hit parade.

Missing: a shoe

The bloke with a guitar, Noble, had a boot stolen at the recent Scala show. Unfortunately, he had to walk around with one shoe on after that. Poor guy. The footwear in question is made by Dr. Martens and is brown. Size unknown. He would like it returned. If you have any information regarding its whereabouts please email me and I will pass on the information. Also while I am here I urge people not to steal from them in the future. While it may only be a sock or a scarf, it’s not very nice is it?
