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.
this, on the radio
I’ve got an hour of spoken word and live music coming out on Radio Reverb, hopefully on Sun 27 July at 11pm (then repeated three times the following week). A preview of the first two and a half minutes can be heard here. That’s 97.2FM kids.*
It was a buzz to put together – and very nice to be asked, obviously – kind of nerve-wracking too, as there’s lots of improv and split-second decisions… If I manage to hold yr attention, unsettle you a bit: good. For sixty minutes, though? Well, I think it holds up. Listen in, see if you agree.
Otherwise, got some gigs coming – including a London leg of Waterghosts. It’s all getting very interesting.
And once again – because you’re no-one if you aren’t selling a piece of yrself nowadays (NB. I have no problem with this)… Do check out this recently-released album, which features a track of mine.
The radio programme, of course, is free.
*& it’s now going out on Sun 24th August. Not sure what happened there, but it’s confirmed for broadcast on this date.
visitation of an American Poet
I’m playing at a Lou Reed tribute night in Kemptown, (At The) Coach House. It starts at 7pm, on Sat 7th Dec. Here’s the address:
There’ll be loads of people playing songs from all across his incredible body of work. I’m doing… Actually, no. If you want to find out, you’ll have to come along. Anyway, it promises to be a fantastic celebration (in a unique venue, too).
