Life's Walshamake it
It appears that we underestimated former Oober-man Paul Walsham. He dropped us a line at The Magic Treehouse to tell us about his current band, Amsterdam, who are seemingly doing very well, appearing on Jonathon Ross with Elvis Costello, no less. I haven't as yet managed to download any of their music from their site, but if Elvis likes them, they must be good.
