Contact & Introduction
Due to the birth of twin girls and already having an 18 month old son, my time is now severely limited. If you need something answered quickly, please send me an e-mail to this address:
The hotmail account is checked daily at work, apologies to those who have to had to wait for answers to things.
As of the present, time is really not on my side due to a long term medical problem with two of my children (it's nothing terminal by the way), those of you who are perhaps curious can visit this site www.headlines.org.uk, the people here have been more help to me and my family than I can say. I include a link here as there is little awareness of Craniosynostosis, you would not believe some of the horror stories I have heard from other parents, who children have not been diagnosed quickly enough. However, I still remain dedicated to publicising what the members of The Purple Hearts are up to musically and will be endeavouring to update the top 5 and the your say sections as soon as time allows. I do plan on using the PC more for the sake of my sanity if nothing else. Given the activity of the excellent RT4, I feel a comprehensive gig guide is needed & with Bob recording new material with The Marksmen I hope to help bring the demo's to a wider audience.
If you want to give me your views on the band to be printed in the 'Your Say' bit, tell me a story you have about the band. Then contact me at the link below.
2001 to 2005
I have done this site to celebrate one of my favourite bands
I have been listening to them now for over 15 years I still remember buying my first copy of "Beat That!" in 1984 when I was 14 years old. Little did I know at the time how much of a mainstay this album would be with me, I had my first set of heroes - The Jam, The Hearts and The Chords. I spent many an hour listening to them, but "Beat That!" was my favourite. I finally saw them for the first time at Mods Mayday 99. They were awesome, I jumped around at the front of the stage for the whole set, I had waited over 15 years for that gig!. The Chords were equally good, Mods Mayday 99 was perfect, the only thing missing was The Jam. But hey, you can't have everything.
Having seen that many of the bands from that era now have web sites I found it frustrating that The Hearts did not. Thank you to Andrew who does The Chords web site for inspiration.
So here it is, I hope all visitors approve of my efforts. If there is anything you would like me to add to this site please e-mail and tell me. If you have any stories or comments about the band again e-mail me and I will put them on the site. Any pictures that you can scan for me will be appreciated.
Enjoy. Regards - Jimmy
