‘SWELL’ is a children’s book Joe wrote with graffiti-artist Kevin Pearson to help raise money for The Blue Door, a drop-in centre for victims of domestic violence and abuse in Scunthorpe. Joe wrote the words and Kevin illustrated, and you can listen to audio/purchase on this link:

‘SWELL’ has also raised money to help keep The Warren Young People’s Project open in Hull. The Warren gave Joe plenty of studio time back in the 90’s when his band Lithium Joe were strapped for cash, and he was delighted to have the opportunity to give them something in return.
