Press Blurb:

The band are playing at Birmingham Hare and Hounds on December 9th. This lot are the latest band my friend Joe is working with, if your are into folk and all that you might enjoy this band. I have 5 Moulettes cds to send out to the first five reviewers who reply to this email with their details and the publication they want to review the cd for.
Music World Radio
This lot are dangerous lunatics. I listen in when I get a chance. I used to organise Gigs in Birmingham at The Old Railway with Magick Temple some years ago. That's another story, but Magick has managed to gather together a really interesting group of individuals who are putting regular radio shows together to play good music of all types.
From the Music World Radio website they say: "Our mission is simple; to bring great music to music fans, no matter the style or genre. If you love great music, Music World Radio is the place to be for all your musical tastes and needs and perhaps you'll hear some stuff you've never heard before. Remember, it's your music, your world, your radio! We are a station run by music fans for music fans, so if you want to take part, lend a hand in any capacity or have any comments at all, drop us a line."
