I’ve been looking for a way to mark 10 years of folk-punk music from myself and one of my ideas was to do a ‘Greatest Hits’ LP. The aim was to try to collect together a good sample of my songs and what it is that I do.

The initial process of that (finding all the old master recordings, demo’s etc) became pretty arduous and very quickly the idea was shelved (although we did find some cool out-takes which might come out later).

Instead, a new plan was hatched and a few months ago, I recorded a live album filled with most of the song choices that I had planned for the greatest hits, Finally, it is now ready for release. It features 11 of the hits, 2 brand new songs, and 1 cover of a Ryan Adams song. It was recorded live in front of a lovely small intimate audience in a flat in Ibrox, Glasgow, July 2016. Recorded and Mixed by Different Circle’s Gareth McNicol.

Pre-order it now and get a brand new song “Shot in the Dark”, and the song that got me to the top of the Amazon UK Folk Charts “Despite the Blackout” instantly. Pre-order link: https://davehughes.bandcamp.com/album/live-in-ibrox
