MJ Hibbett & The Validators

I needed some cheering up on Friday. And thankfully MJ Hibbett was on hand with some new music.

This Friday, MJ Hibbett & The Validators return with their first album since 2010, ‘Still Valid’. First single ’20 Things To Do Before You’re 30′ offers an alternative bucket list to the usual nonsense, presenting a to-do top 20 that I did a pretty good job of completing before I was 30. So that’s good news.

“Smoke bananas, fall asleep on a train, get so drunk that you hallucinate, go out with someone awful, be friends with gits, die your hair, shave your head, go for lunch and come back pissed”. It’s a solid and achievable list. “Pretend that you are weird” is another good one.

All of these will be useful in later life, Hibbett explains. And there are also some key tips for what to expect once you’ve passed that big 3-0 milestone. Listen here.
