After releasing one of my favourite albums of 2020 with the Wonky Psychedelic Pop of Love & Chemicals plus also doing a few gigs (one of which was for me 😃) Mr Teenage Waitress or Dan to his friends has been a bit quiet.

Brits n Pieces III – Album Review
Three is a magic number! Three is seen as a lucky number amongst owners of Mini Cooper's from the 1960's because it represents the 3 used in the classic Michael Caine Film The Italian Job.
