In the early 90s, John had a call from his management company asking if he would like to join The STRANGLERS so he started writing songs with them in mind, "Hearts Of Fire", Blue Skies" and "When I Looked Away". The guys in The Stranglers then decided they wanted to write themselves and go down a different road with another singer so John continued writing and "State Of the Heart" was the result of his desire to write cool songs. "State Of The Heart" will now finally get a CD release on 08 April 2013. Order your copy today from the online store!

Review from LET IT ROCK:
So "Free" launches the agenda in the HEAD traditional ring of acoustic guitar and harmonica where the strident approach reveals a lyrical hope that turns urgent in the upbeat swampiness of "Narcisister". But if "First I Lost My Mind" slows things down for the playful to turn into the painful, "Cadillacs And Diamonds" flows on a laid-back West Coast vibe which denies consumerism in the name of love. Yet "I'll Turn You On" is the best power ballad this side of hard rock and it'll take ages to forget the slide figure that carries "The Haunting". And there's peace in the end, as "Angels And Misfits" flattens all the questions marks hanging over Fiddler's songs into a straight and smooth pop route. That's the philosophy to live by.
