“First was Guernsey based label Magic Moustache Records, the brain child of Joe Le Long and Gregory Harrison who might be more familiar to you from Lord Vapour (in the case of Joe) and The Recks (in the case of both of them). After releasing Lord Vapour’s music in the past they are now spreading their wings a little wider with the release of the new album from Stone Cold Fiction as a limited vinyl edition, and I also spoke to the three guys from the Brighton based band too.” Tom Girard

The Vale Earth Fair Festival – The House Stage and Bad Weather – Festival review by Tom Girard (BBC)

For the Third year Greg has been running one of the stages at the channel islands longest running festival.  Although this year the weather seemed to have given them a fight for the worst people literally piled on the stage. It was then wrapped in tarp and the show went on for the bravest to enjoy.

“Replacing the busking stage during daylight hours and the dance stage after sunset, The House was somewhat bested by the weather during the afternoon making for an intimate performances space” Tom Girard

The Vale Earth Fair – August 2015

A successful weekend running the ‘Busking Stage’ at The Vale Earth Fair 2015, Guernsey’s biggest festival. Six stages feature both local and international acts across a variety of musical genres from rock and hip hop to dance and folk. The acts on the Busking Stage went down well, and the tent was busy with appreciative audiences throughout the day. Thanks to all who played and watched!

Chaos Festival – August 2015

Nice review of a solo gig at Chaos Festival 2015 by Tom Girard. Thanks Tom!

With a hugely rich voice, this genuine and modest performer delivered everything from the soul, whether it was original material, or his own take on the work of others, and matched the continued relaxed feel in and around the tent.

Sark Folk Festival – July 2014

As well as Hillbill’s antics the real highlight of the set for me came in the form of recently recruited fiddle player English Bob (aka Gregory Harrison) who here had some real opportunities to shine and rock the fiddle like I’ve never really seen anyone do and making some excellent noises with it while imbuing the instrument with some real rock ‘n’ roll emotion.
