(August 2012) VICTIMS OF TOMORROW, is a collaboration between John Fiddler and R. K , to work in any musical genre, rather than be limited to one area. Produced by John, V.O.T. have written and recorded a series of new works, and LOVE TONITE, a dance track, is the first to surface. RK's Riff Machine never stops and already we have a bunch of songs ready to unleash! We hope there'll be a lot of smiles on the faces of fans of John Fiddler, of MEDICINE HEAD, BRITISH LIONS (Mott The Hoople), and BOX OF FROGS (The Yardbirds).

(May 2012) John Fiddler has recently written the Foreword to a new book by James McCarraher, taking us on a journey through the most chaotic, fractured and diverse decade on record for music...and arguably the most exciting and creative too.
'101 Songs To Discover From The Seventies' is a key to help unlock the mysteries of that decade, telling the story of the evolution of popular music through a series of carefully chosen compositions. Starting with the might of progressive rock, the book steers a steady course through the blues, folk, disco, rock, heavy rock, glam, punk and new wave, before paving the way for the Eighties and the new romantics. This book not only touches upon the more popular songs and artists of the era, but takes a look at some of the forgotten acts and those that simply failed to get their big break.
The book features pieces on Medicine Head, British Lions and Mott the Hoople.
This title is available via the Amazon websites as a paperback and Kindle download.
