The very talented musician, Marc Rigelsford, melded some of our dad's old ciné film footage to his song: Is History.

It's a fantastic tune and we're sure our dad would be very proud of what Marc has done. Cheers, Marc!

Check out Marc, aka Magic Arm, and his music here.

BARNACLE BRAT (a dark comedy for grown-ups) - his first novel - was voted Underground Book Reviews' INDIE NOVEL OF THE YEAR (Readers' Choice) in January 2016.

STANLEY McCLOUD MUST DIE! (more dark comedy for grown-ups) published in the summer of 2016 and the author is currently working on his next book: THE SNOWMAN AND THE SCARECROW (another dark comedy for grown-ups) which will follow as soon as he can manage it. (Probably another two year wait!)

An as yet untitled novel (about Sex and Crime) is earmarked as his fourth. It will, apparently, be an orgy of filth, depravity and wrongdoings, filled with far-fetched characters (criminals and perverts, most likely!) smothered in copious amounts of distasteful black humour. If that's the kind of thing that appeals to you, you sicko, you're probably just the type of reader he's looking for.

Strange, isn't it? If you look at him in this picture, you'd think butter wouldn't melt in his mouth! What a weirdo. Pity his poor sister!

Award-winning author, Adrian Baldwin (the one in the middle; what you can't see his imaginary friend?) is a Mancunian now living and working in Wales.

Back in the '90s, he wrote for various TV shows/personalities: Hale & Pace, Clive Anderson, Brian Conley, Paul McKenna, Smith & Jones, Rory Bremner. Wooo, get him! 

Since then, he has written three screenplays, one of which received generous financial backing from the Film Agency for Wales. Then along came the global recession to kick the UK Film industry in the nuts. What a bummer!

Not to be outdone, he turned to novel writing – which had always been his real dream – and, in particular, a genre he feels is often overlooked; a genre he has always been a fan of: Dark Comedy. (Black humour, as some might call it.)

As a young teenager, Adrian grew up watching Monty Python's TV shows and reading the novels of Kurt Vonnegut. Little wonder then - perhaps it was inevitable - that his first novel, BARNACLE BRAT (a dark comedy for grown-ups) would turn out to be "weird and disturbing but funny at the same time" - much like the strange and surreal humour he so enjoyed as a boy.

Adrian cites his other major influences as Stephen King, Galton & Simpson, David Bowie, Bruce Robinson, Christopher Moore, David Mitchell, Robert Rankin, Colin Bateman, Irvine Welsh, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, to name just a few.
