Madness sax player Lee lends a hand with pal's first album in aid of children's charity

By Adrian Colley in Local People

A MUSICIAN is celebrating his 60th birthday by recording his first album – in aid of a charity set up to help detect rare heart conditions in children.

And Mike Sebbage has enlisted a famous pal – sax player Lee Thompson from Madness – to play on one track.

Mike, of Norrys Road, Cockfosters, will donate the proceeds to Max’s Foundation, set up last year in memory of East Finchley boy Max Schiller, who died at the age of ten from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a thickening of the heart’s muscle wall.

Mike said: “I have always written songs and decided to do a solo album. I thought it would be nice to do something. It’s pop and soft rock genres.

“I know the family and have helped them with the design of their website.”

The record, called Dreams in my Pocket, is due for release in May or June and will also feature collaborator Ryan Woods. The charity’s website is at

Copies of his album can be obtained online at

* Lee Thompson’s ska band The Silencerz are playing the Saracens Amateur rugby club in Southgate on Saturday, February 25.

Good luck Mike with this venture. Will post something on our Soulstice Facebook site as there is a good deal of crossover - charity, music, Barnet, Lee etc. Best wishes from the Soulstice Crew
