    Hi Seventai,

    I'm really glad you're enjoying the tunes, thanks very much. Stu's a mean player himself!

    'Jimmy James' is dedicated to a friend of mine who died - his name was James, and for reasons long forgotten, I called him Jimmy James and he called me Stevie Steve. Hence the title.

    A scary proportion of my tunes are inspired by people dying in one way or another...
