Yes, I saw that on FB earlier. It's a cracker, isn't it? Really liked the EP last year he did with Martin Duffy - Alien Stadium. Seems to be going from strength to strength!

Finally got around to listening to the new Steve Mason album, About the Light, last night . Liked it so much that I listened to it three times in a row. 10 tracks and exactly 40 mins in length, what a great record! I especially like the second song, Rocket, but they are all ace! Hope the record does well for him. I follow him on Facebook and notice that 6 Music play him a lot and he was on Soccer AM, so it feels like it's getting abit of exposure.

BTW, whatever happened to the other Beta Banders after the Aliens? They released two great albums, and then disappeared. Shame!

'Rocket' is an absolute corker of a tune

John Mclean got into film, made a very good western starring Michael Fassbender called 'Slow West', plus a short with him as well, 'Pitch Black Heist', that's also worth a look.
As for the other Aliens i've no idea.

The Steve Mason album is definitely one of his better ones but, like all of his solo material, I was still left feeling a little underwhelmed at the end of it all.
Astronauts report it feels good.

Listening to this now. Sounds pretty good. Rocket is great indeed, as is the title track.
Can’t help but wonder how much better sound quality wise ANH would have sounded if Jason had used a proper mixing engineer. I mean if Steve Mason - not a big seller, is he? - can afford Stephen Street, so could Jason. But I digress...
Lovely album this ;)
