Funnily enough I had the same though when I saw Jon Boden, then we met him afterwards to sign a CD - Jeebus he's tall!

Check this out from the man himself, from last years tour IIRC (which is a great album if you haven't picked it up).

Such a fan of his Bb tuning too, how he makes so much noise as one man for the Bellowhead "biggies" - true Wayne's World moment.

Brilliant, loved Bellowhead, love Jon Bowden, (and John Bowers). I was lucky enough to do PA for Faustus a few years ago, Benji Kirkpatrick, Paul Sartin (both from Bellowhead) and Saul Rose (Martin Carthy's Squeezebox player) also brilliant, and nice guys to work with.

Big Faustus fan here too mate, i saw both of their sets at Towersey this year and we saw them 2 weeks back on the latest tour.

Not surprised they are lovely, it cone across when you speak to them after the gig. Though I did rather shout at Benji after he opened for the Levellers last year - but only because they'd just given me tinnitus...
