Look what we found down the back of the couch. The last ever, to date, Corpo recordings.

Back in 2013, our good pal Rocky O'Reilly, genius engineer and part time pop star, invited us up to Start Together studios in Belfast for a cheery escapade. They were running a fun singles club (not that type, steady now) where the physical release would be an unusual object, accompanied by a download code, something lovely and unique to try and bring a little joy back into the banal invisibility of the streaming murk. In our case he suggested bespoke love hearts. How well he knew us.

We had an utterly joyous time recording there with Ben McAuley and rattled through 2 new Corpo songs in just a couple of hours. 'The power of love Pt 1' is another slab of fiddly nonsense from me, but 'The power of love Pt 2' was our Mark's debut song for the Corpo. And it's a smash! He did come up with another power ballad gem, I think called 'Fill up on bread' or 'Do I not do enough??', that is still languishing in demo form on a dusty hard drive. One day, it will be polished into a gleaming pop diamond, but for now we just have this.

We offer it to you under no pre-conditions, other than a glimpse into the ever-mutating position we found ourselves in as our foot fell off the accelerator. If we ever find first gear again, we'll honk from the hard shoulder, but we hope you enjoy this.

The Dudley Corporation Dublin, Ireland

The Dudley Corporation are Joss, Mark and Dudley.

Dublin gents with 4 LPs under their decaying belts.

In brief, they play short rock songs with wit, verve, romance and booksmarts.

Their shows are notoriously frenzied, visceral and exciting affairs with one song careering into another or stopping on a sixpence, as they say in football parlance.

They are quite old.
