Another Date for your Diary!

Charlie's old band are reforming to play a gig at The Lemon Tree on 1st September 2007 to raise money for Leukaemia Research. The info from their press pack for the gig (very grand LOL!) says this:

The Dreaming and Tinderbox will reform for a one off fundraiser for Leukaemia Research on Saturday, September 1st, 2007 at The Lemon Tree. The show will feature all the foot-stomping fun of yester-year and some very special guests.

The gig is a fundraiser for Leukaemia Research, which is a topic close to the heart of the band since singer Charlie Love's wife, Vanessa, has recently recovered from the disease.

The Dreaming, who changed their name to Tinderbox after a legal battle with EMI in 1995, have played with (amongst others) RunRig, Travis, Texas, The Waterboys, Big Country and Van Morrison.

During a five year career between 1992 and 1997 the band played their own slot at the Scottish Fleadh, appeared as headliners at Glasgow Read More

Life is amazing!

Hi, long time – no updates! What can I say…the pressures of being a full-time Mum, iPhone/Facebook addict have taken their toll and I haven’t updated here for a long time (again).  Since I’m hoping to do a few more updates, Charlie has just updated the web site for me! What do you think of the new colour scheme?

Just so that things don’t get too stale here, I’ve added a Facebook widget which will update my photos and status from Facebook. I update this several times a day via my iPhone (which is ace!!!).  Charlie remarks that my housework productivity has decreased since I got it and I think he’s right :-P.

Please take some time to sponsor me as a survivour for the relay for life at Peterhead on July 25th.  Visit my sponsorship page at http://www.donatetomyrelay.org/vanessalove

Take Care
