In March 2017, while touring Germany with the UOGB, I collapsed in my hotel room from an attack of biological meningitis, which left me in a coma for five days and fighting for my life.


As I lay between life and death on my hospital bed, I wish I could tell you that I was visited by the Angel of Death, harangued by the Prophet Jeremiah, or even conversed with my Native American spirit guide, about the meaning of my life and this traumatic episode.

But no, nothing, nada…..


I awoke, got slowly better, left hospital, pretty much as I came in, none the wiser about what it all meant.....


So in view of this fug of meaninglessness, and grateful for the fact that I'm still alive, I’ve decided to come out of retirement to get back to work with the Airline Toilets Theatre Company (purely on a part time consultancy basis).

I've also thought that, since I'm a middle aged man producing music, which is of little interest to most people on the planet; I'm now going to start writing for the very specific environment of the airline toilet.

Only in there can I truly be myself, moving around that space like a caged panther, running like an antelope, roaring like a Lion over the African Tundra - Serengeti - Multi Storey Car Park.....................whatever.

So this season, you'll get fewer videos, but they'll all feature original music. I've also upgraded my rig by adding a mini lighting attachment to my iphone as well as dabbing myself with make up prior to take off.

Here's a recent production (above) called Jazzdene, original music by me, and sung by officers of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in the skies over Europe.
Also since everybody and their friend seem to be soliciting money online to get funding; I’m doing the same and the ATTC now proudly has a page on Patreon where, going forward, sponsors can get a birds eye view of what its like in that crucible of creativity......
