Members will also have exclusive access to competitions with some pretty amazing prizes!

Ginger explains:

The base tier of membership, the Digital tier, will get all of this content, updated at least once a month, and full access to the www.g-a-s-s.co website where it all resides, alongside stunning artwork from a number of fantastic artists.

The middle tier of membership, the Physical tier, will get all of the above, along with an exclusive, members-only T-shirt, and a G·A·S·S· (tote) bag full of other goodies including a bottle opener, badge and sticker.

The top tier of membership, the Contact tier, gets you everything from the Digital and Physical tiers, and adds a stunning screen print, and access to “Meet & Greet” experiences, where you can come along to pre-show sessions and meet Ginger, get things signed, pictures taken, and be treated to a few more songs in a much more intimate setting.

The pricing for UK signups is:

Digital – £30
Physical – £60

The band are due to play the Zippo Encore stage on Saturday 14th June. See http://www.downloadfestival.co.uk/ for full details and ticket prices. Jon Poole will be the bass-player for these shows.

CJ’s PledgeMusic Campaign Goes Live

By CJ | January 31, 2014

Mable CD & Devilspit Hot Sauce!

Hey, it’s only been 7 years since the last one and I’m thinking it’s time I pulled my finger out and got back up on the old horse.

Mable is basically me working in my home studio throughout summer/winter 2013 writing, demoing, and going a little stir crazy. It’s a power pop five knuckle shuffle bunch of songs that combines everything I love about music that’s melody, harmonies and guitars, all put together with a quirky rock slant.

Along with the new album I will be working with Chilli Devil Sauces to bring you the first in a line of hot sauces, debuting with ‘Devilspit’ and it’s a bumstinger.

My brand new hot sauce made to my own secret recipe. Devilspit is a gourmet, hand made, combination of chilli sauce, BBQ sauce and beer. Three of my favourite things all in one bottle. This one will not be the hottest sauce I bring out, but it’s a good introduction to the line and, trust me, it will hurt a little… say a 7/10 on the heat scale. The sauce is handmade with all natural ingredients and definitely no chilli extract just pure honest heat.

The bottle contains 225g of sauce and also comes with a signature pic.

So, there you go, a new album and a hot sauce… what’s not to love!


My first solo album 13 has been out of print for the last 6 years, so we are reissuing it as part of the Pledge campaign. You can pick up a signed copy on CD on the right hand side of this page.

In addition, we are releasing a special limited edition vinyl set that will contain my first album 13 AND my new album Mable. Strictly limited to 300 pieces.

Head off to PledgeMusic to see the available packages and pledge your support.
