Normally I hate and fear February, but this one’s already shaping up to be an exceptionally good month. All in one night, did a gig:
Then had In The Evil Empire played on MuseBoat Radio (on TJ’s Muse Bridge… old-fashioned, but I still get a kick out of hearing my stuff introduced by an American voice)… and went into the site chatroom during the programme, which was an interesting new experience – and fun, if nail-biting… and then found out the track was also being played on Source FM the same night, on a prog called Random Jukebox.
Phew. Actually this was last night, so am still a little jangled. Hope this post made sense – if not, apply for a refund to the usual address. Buz buz. xx
Looks fun. Free gig, promoted by the very talented Jacob Szulecki - and I say that not as a suck-up, but because I genuinely have no idea how he plays the stuff he does on guitar. Anyway, he’s assembled some meaty talent for this event – come see & hear.
Also, I’ve got new songs to play! That’s always a buzz – and if I get a buzz, you get a buzz. Reasonable, innit.
Here’s an extract from the launch gig, as threatened – two songs (In The Evil Empire & Self Possession, which features improvisation and death-cries). It was a lovely night, and hopefully this captures some of the energy. Have a look:
Speaking of gigs, there’s a launch event in 2 days here in Brighton – Phantom Hound #1 in Kemptown. The venue (At The Coach House) is unusual and the lineup’s great. Also, it’s free.
Here’s the single’s artwork in all its splendid ugliness:
bloody hell, look at that playlist!
2 things – quickly:
1) Container Drivers Radio played In The Evil Empire on their show for November 1st. Follow the link for a great programme.
2) Got a gig here in Brighton on Saturday 15th – an all-dayer, Something Wholly Inappropriate, with a splendid lineup.
Carry on xx
