Some comments left on Pledgemusic so far:

• “Was sceptical about the new incarnation of the Poppies but after New Noise and seeing you at Sleigh the Uk at Brum 2012, don’t know what I was worried about. New song sounds great and can’t wait for the new album. Good on you Mr Crabb.”

• This all sounds great. Can’t wait to get my grubby grebo hands on it.
