Original Poppie Adam Mole has begun a fortnightly auction of some of his PWEI memorabilia to help fund the purchase of a caravan. First up is the PWEI DIAM football shirt he wore on the PWEI/Fun-Da-Mental appearance on the infamous late night 90’s TV show The Word. With each auction, Adam will be writing some anecdotes regarding each item, it’s all funny and interesting stuff, well worth checking out.

As spotted over at PWEINation, it appears that the next single to be lifted from New Noise Designed By A Sadist will be Disguise, released on March 12th, and it will be featured as Single of the Week next week on BBC Radio6. Graham will also be interviewed on Radio6 on Thursday Friday morning at (a rather early for me) 7:00 9:00-ish talking about the album.
