MJ Hibbett & The Validators are just getting themelves together for the next release, which will be a EP featuring “The Gay Train” and “The Lesson Of The Smiths”, along with “Never Going Back To Aldi’s”, “Other Bands’ Setlists”, an acoustical version of “We Only Ever Meet In Church” and a radio edit of “The Lesson Of The Smiths”, known HILARIOUSLY to them as The Norman Collier Mix.

Little Star Designs are hard at work on the sleeve and MJ is busying himself with the Multimedia. This should feature the video for “The Gay Train”, the demo version of “Hey Hey 64K” and the story of how that came to be, and a recording of their gig at The Firebug in Leicester on the tour in July. They’re hoping to have it all done and releasable in the spring.
