MJ Hibbett & The Validators release two rarities album for the price of one promoted with a three month tour in a pub. 'Forest Moon Of Enderby' is a collection of twelve rare b-sides with an extra 23 track album of further rarities called Hibbett's Superstore on the CD-R.' Leave My Brother' Alone was featured in the band's live Radio One session at Maida Vale while 'Data Storage Thing' appears on the multi-million download Samsung SSD Awesomeness online advert. 'The Ballad Of Alan Moore' meanwhile is a tribute to the comics writing genius which has been admired by the Editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics as well as Mr Moore himself. Tim and Emma from The Validators are currently living in Mauritius, making conventional touring impractical, so MJ has decided instead to do a three month tour in his local pub. From 11 October he will be performing totally acoustically every fortnight in the upstairs room of The Lamb in London and releasing each show as a free podcast. "This is a fantastic new way to tour", he says. "It allows thousands of people to enjoy relaxed and intimate performances, while the performers themselves get to go home to their own beds afterwards. Everyone's a winner!" Special guests include Chris T-T, The Bobby McGees, Gavin Osborn and members of Pocketbooks.
