A live album of Nick Burbridge's songs is now available: McDermott's Two Hours - Live At Ferneham Hall, which, like other albums, critics have taken to their hearts. Copies are obtainable by contacting this website.

"as much a sampler for the consistency and strength of Nick's writing as anything else...for the McDermotts novice who might've wondered why critics have been raving about them, but also a memento for the cognoscenti. It's the sheer energy and drive - if all folk-rock were like this, then the beast wouldn't be lumbering along half-dead in cosy parentheses on the Mike Harding programme would it? - the unbridled atmosphere of the McDermotts gig...this record's a stonker"
(David Kidman, netrhythms) - read the full review

"While the D.I.Y.-ish cover of Live at Ferneham Hall gives the appearance of a bootleg there is nothing bootleg or D.I.Y.-ish about either the music or production on this superb live CD  from one of the most influential Celtic-folk-rock bands of the 80's (ask The Levellers). If you're unfamiliar with past works of this Brighton, England based Anglo-Irish quintet then think Bragg, Moore (Christy of course), Strummer and of course MacGowan and the Pogues and not as mere imitators but as peers."

In another welcome development, a McDermottĂ­s Two Hours section has been added to the Alternative Levellers Message Board - all messages there are read by the band.

Look out for Nick's article, 'Off The Road' in Songbook, Issue 8 and  his song Prisoner, as one of the B sides on the Levellers' single Make U Happy. While McDermott's Two Hours continue to gig when commitments and incapacities allow, Nick and Ben Paley can still be found in a session most Sunday afternoons at the Bugle Inn, Brighton.
