The 'Wimpy Love Mix' - a new remix of PREGOBLIN by The Pop Group

'PREGOBLIN reached out to Mark Stewart saying they dug The Pop Group, and asked would we rework some of their material, I had a listen and they have this great song, with lyrics somewhere between Ian Dury and Serge Gainsbourg. A remix was put together and here it is. Enjoy with fries and a doughnut!' - Gareth Sager

'Mr Warren Mansfield introduced me to Mark Stewart in a pub - Sebley don't get star stuck often as a rule but like meeting a first Debenhams Father Christmas, I was timid and excited and may have chewed my hand producing a lot of saliva. "I thought we got rid of all you hippies'' - said Mark (I had long hair at the time) from that day we hit it off. God bless Mark Stewart and Gareth Sager.' - Alex Sebley / PREGOBLIN
