Tomorrow then, the first HOT PIG single is to be released - two new songs called THREE QUESTIONS and JUST ANOTHER DAY. We're really excited about this opportunity to show our softer, more sensitive side.

We are also making available, a new BONUS track, here on this very website. This is a new SYSTEM X recording called PARIS LOVE which won't be available anywhere else for a very long time. It's got much more of a rehearsal room vibe than our previous releases, reflecting how it was actually played live back in the day.

We're continuing to work on new music for you all of the time, so expect more new releases in the not too distant future.

Cheers Xers

Mike

And there's more!!

Yes, just around the corner - a little later than originally scheduled - with a release date of 1st March will be our debut album.

Hey - just wanted to drop you all a message to say thanks for your interest in our music.

Several of you have now subscribed and have hopefully received your copy of the bonus track CHARLES. That song was inspired by the story of Charles Darwin, who travelled the world for five years while in his twenties. Though he published several papers on the subject in the meantime, it took him more than twenty years to complete his masterpiece 'On The Origin Of Species' - Sean and I certainly learnt something while writing that.

Having had just a short summer break, staying variously in Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath, we're now working on our next single, which we hope will become another dance floor smash! As a taster, the new song contains the following three words:

  • Pleasure

  • Sin

  • Flash

​​

We're aiming to have that available by early October - I'll update nearer the time with a firm date.

Cheers Xers

Mike
