Andrew Stafford returnsMore good news from the Coal Porters camp is that Ex-Coal Porters bassist Andrew Stafford returns to the very bosom of the CPs family after three years…hats in the air, eh? Andrew even has his new mulberry suit ready to both rock out and match the suits of Paul Fitzgerald, Neil Bob Herd, Sid G and, ahem, Kerenza Peacock’s near-purple frock.

Andrew has been much missed by the Coal Porters. A fine, fine bassist already he has been taking singing lessons and is now an accomplished harmony singer so get ready to hear him warble his way into your heart as well as musically thump his way forward.

Many will remember Andrew played on the majority of the tracks on the last Coal Porters album, Find The One, and he has been missed by a sizeable section of the CPs’ audience ever since he left the band to devote himself to his law practice.
