26/08/12 Once again we would like to extend our gratitude to everyone for their efforts in spreading the news about the instruments and various other items stolen from our van outside the Holiday Inn Express after the Bilston show at the beginning of June. Unfortunately there have been no new developments on the recovery of the stolen items.

It would seem that the word spread around the world with the aid of newspapers, radio and online social media within a matter for hours.We were once again humbled by the many offers of loaned instruments to tide us over from bands and musicians everywhere just as we were after the studio fire. Special thanks goes out to Utopian Love Revival, Goldblade and everyone involved with Strummercamp who gave us equipment, help and encouragement so we could play our set at the festival.

Unfortunately we have had no news on the stolen items as yet and the insurance claim is on going. We would be grateful if everyone could stay on the look out for any of the items on the list:
