For those who were unable to login to today's live web chat, hosted by the respected Guardian Newspaper, its worth reading the interesting discussion record online -

R&R reciprocated good questions from fans, probing a long and dynamic career, with some fascinating answers.

I posted quite a few questions on there; suffice to say they didn't get answered but I really did enjoy the experience :)

Managed to view most of it - was very good - posted one question but it was not selected.

" Will the new single be supported by any UK TV appearances"

Yes, I noticed your one about what grub R&R eat after a gig, which is something that I've often wondered. Something light and vegetarian, I imagine.

Hope there are opportunities for TV exposure. The excellent new songs sure do standout. Really feel that Edith Piaf and the Missionary Position could create a sensation. Oh, why does that sound like a camp innuendo?

An interesting read with lots of subjects covered. I can confirm 'Pineapple' is Russell's finest written tune to date.
