live at last: 22 Sept, Brighton

So I finally got the go-ahead for another gig in this our post-visitation yr 2021: I’m promoting this one (and one day I’ll stop putting myself lowest on the bill), so you know it’ll be pharmaceutical quality.

After such a long lay-off it feels like a big deal, although the thing itself’s fairly low-key…  Well, I say that, but it features the immensely talented and fascinating Oli Spleen (with friends, in Gaslight Illuminati guise) & unique polymathic genius R Dyer.

Come see!

(NB. it doesn’t matter much, but this gig was originally scheduled for 2 July – I just copy-pasted the original post and changed the date/artwork.  If it happens again, might leave this here as a monument to modest, albeit doomed, ambition.  But that’s loser talk! …I hope.)

the album – track by track & review

Did a track by track on the new album for Sonic Shocks – read it here.

Goes into a bit of detail about how it was recorded during lockdown, what the songs are about, the whole point of the thing… Hopefully an amusing read without giving too much away (it’s a fine line, but I don’t like to hand everything out on a plate.  Mystery, you know).  See what you think.

They also a put up review – here – “a powerful collection of tracks”.  As always, you can hear them by hitting the Bandcamp player just to yr right there…

 

 

new album: ‘To The Outer World’ released 23 Apr ’21

 

Bandcamp / Spotify / Amazon / Apple Music

It’s here…  New album comes out today – a full-length studio recording with the band and various guest musicians, and some of my best songs yet: hope you enjoy (you can stream it on any of the links above).  xx

 

“Envy The Birds” out 26 Mar ’21

Spotify / Apple Music / Amazon

The 3rd and final single from my forthcoming album To The Outer World releases today… It’s a longer track (5mins, which is a lot for a guitar band), goes to some interesting places without losing the groove.

Did an interview recently with Muso Muso magazine – read it here.  I don’t normally swear that much – answering questions about my music, anyway – but seeing it out there in someone else’s font, it seems a bit excessive.  Didn’t register it at the time, for whatever reason – my mood was fine, pulse and brainwaves normal… maybe it just looks worse to me, I dunno.  See what you think.

EDIT: Just to add, Graham Duff’s Mixtape on Slack City for 24 March played “A Friend From Far Away” – listen to the whole show here.

“A Friend From Far Away” out 26 Feb ’21

Bandcamp / Spotify / Amazon / etc

The 2nd single from my new album’s out today (LP to follow Fri 23 April).  It’s available from all the usual online sources, but I’d recommend the Bandcamp version, which comes with several extra tracks – a stealth EP, even.  As before, it was recorded punishingly loud at Church Road Studios with Julian Tardo – hope you enjoy.

Oh yeah, here’s another no-budget DIY video to go with it, what I done all by myself (meant to make something a bit more extravagant this time, but lockdown II squashed that idea)…

“Something That Can Help” out 29 Jan ’21

Spotify / Apple Music / Amazon

First of three singles – next one follows in about a month.  This one’s my last word on a pet subject – a focused, direct guitar number (another last word, possibly).  Hope you enjoy.
