The return of Skin Côntact! They will be back in May.

Poster of their 1st performance: 9th March 2015

Skin Côntact, the wine trade's super-group headed by Richard Hemming now an MW, is back with a date sometime in May – to be revealed on 20th January.

Like Frank Sinatra and many other great musicians and entertainers they couldn't stay away! 

I understand that in the long and hallowed rock music tradition all the vocalists in Skin Côntact Mach 1 have been pensioned off to be replaced by a new set as yet unannounced. It remains to be seen whether the various permutations of Skin Côntact will in time be considered as an acceptable subject for an MW thesis.  

Memories of a great night on 9th March 2015 at Vinopolis:
