' Say hello to the future of British music..' That's how the NME Young Britannia feature kicked off; these Singers, Songwriters, Producers and Bands have really got it going on. Holburn studios got nice and messy when Dean acted as ringmaster to this crazy 'ol shoot. Well to be part of this was a must if you were part of this elite crop of new exciting bands that are exploding on to the music scene .... It was a total GAS! Everyone came away with smiles on their faces and most with fire extinguisher foam in they hair...

Tonight at the Royal Albert Hall there is a special charity event 'A Night for Jon Brookes'. The Charlatans released an official statement that read "Following the loss of our much missed friend and drummer, Jon Brookes, we, together with some friends, are putting on a show at the Royal Albert Hall. The show will benefit The Brain Tumour Charity, which Jon was involved with during his illness. It’s our way of raising money for research into and awareness of a cancer that will unfortunately affect many lives as it has ours. We look forward to seeing you at the Royal Albert Hall and making it a night to remember." To find out more details please go to The Charlatans Official website  HERE. Dean has been documenting the rehearsals and preparations for the event and will also be taking photographs tonight.
