He contributed vocals and bass to "Bajina" in 2000, with Dino Ferari (drums) and Judge Trev Thoms (lead guitar), and, also with Ferari and Judge Trev, recorded two new tracks for the Steve Took's Horns album Blow It!!!, the main body of which was recorded in 1977 at Pathway Studios, London, by Took with Trev and Ferari; that album was released 10 August 2004. After these musical excursions he contributed vocals and bass for Trev (lead guitar & vocals), Jim Hawkman (synthesizer), and John Morgan (drums) with "Mother Of All Bands" (M.O.A.B.). Since then, amongst other various musical projects he has played with Leeds-based band "The Sewer Suckers" who supported bands such as "My Older Ego" in his home town...
