So began each of the Sagas of Noggin the Nog, in which the crown of Noggin, Prince of the Nogs is sought by his wicked uncle Nogbad the Bad who devises evil plots to threaten the safety of the kingdom, and sometimes the world, in order to force Noggin to give up his crown.

Derek, you god you lol. I started playing bass because of you. Well, kinda. I was at the Simple Minds (was a big fan) concert in the Edinburgh Playhouse circa promised you a miracle. I was in the front row and you kept standing on my hands, so you gave me your plectrum to make up for it lol. I also met you a couple of times up at castlecliff as I used to hang out (pester) there. Hope youre doing well mate, you are a star.
