While I remember, here’s a vid from a recent gig at Cool Cats’ Café in London: In The Evil Empire. It was a protest song when I wrote it, and sadly now even more so. (Besides looking like it was filmed through a sniper’s night-sight, it’s also quite different to the recorded version – have a goggle…)
Well, you takes your vote and you makes your choice. And the nation has chosen. For FUCK’S SAKE (and yes, I fully understand the concept of democratic representation – that’s what makes it so damn depressing).
Instead of curling up and weeping with despair, I’ve got a gig to do – Thur 14th May, Icarus Club @ Pelton Arms, Greenwich, free entry, doors 8pm. The format’s a bit different: all 5 acts do 2 short sets each. Also appearing are the mighty Bruise, Yeti Love, Charlie Hole Music & Little Beach.
It’ll be great, and in an age of austerity it’s free to get in. Come!
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:
Got a single coming out at the end of November… So it’s time to start dangling vague, tantalising hints under yr nose like a diaphanous silken scarf rippling in the aromatic breeze of rumour – you know how it is. Consider that a ripple, then. More news very soon.
Meanwhile, there are 2 vids on Facebook of my gig at the Brighton Arts Club music festival in August (new songs, too) – have a look.
That’s the hour-long show I recorded for Radio Reverb (aired August 24th), as mentioned previously.
Try it – there’s four live songs, some spoken word and some lo-fi electronic stuff exclusive to the programme.
Next one’s this Sunday at The Ranelagh, should be good… The Brighton Arts Club Music Festival last weekend was a blast, and I’ve got video evidence which I’ll share on here soon.
