In Christmas 2001 while Huw was a nationwide tour with Hawkwind he contracted Legionnaires Disease. His wife Marion believed it was the end of his musical career, but slowly his health improved and in 2008 Huw was approached to record an album of the best songs Huw had written.
Huw didn’t see the point and instead he and wife Marion wrote a series of new tracks for the album to be titled “Hard Graft”. The album will be released in the Spring of 2010, but before that, one of the tracks is to be released and be featured in a global cancer awareness campaign from the KILLING Cancer charity, promoting Photodynamic Therapy as a new way of destroying cancer. The track - ‘Photodynamic Therapy’ - will be the campaign anthem. It was written following Huw and Marion’s personal life experiences with cancer.
The full length track “PDT – Photodynamic Therapy”is being released by Cherry Red Records as a global digital download on the net on Monday 19th October 2009.
