see you on the other side x
action shots by Charlotte Horton – Eight Miles High Club, Brighton, 30 Sept ’22
Just because, here are some photos from last week’s Eight Miles High gig at the Prince Albert… Also features Barney on drums, Be Kind Cadaver getting all up in yr bizness & 2/5 of Codex Serafini being incredible. It was a very nice night, and a sweaty one – if you weren’t there I pity you, I really do x
We’re on at 6pm on Saturday 17th, between Maz Clarke + Sister Wendy and Blue Spectre (doors at 2:45, curfew 11pm). We’re in the Brunswick’s classy upstairs room on the bigger stage for a change, which is nice – although I like the cellar bar scum dungeon too. Some ticketing info:
Full access weekend ticket: £15 (online) £16 (OTD)
Full access Saturday ticket: £12 (online) 13 (OTD)
Friday Night only: £6 (online) £7 (OTD)
Saturday upstairs only: £8 (online) £9 (OTD)
Saturday downstairs only: £6 (online) £7 (OTD)
…All correct at time of writing – as is the line-up. Thanks to Come On Rock Music for a titan organisational effort: will be a blast x
bleeding for my art – which I hope not to do all over that nice, classy stage
There’s a 6th installment of the ongoing Safehouse album project (and I’m on it). This is another free improv epic, part of a vast unfolding tale that started in lockdown… Here’s what I wrote about the first one I played on, shortly after the world changed. Track above features some truly horrible guitar from me, pitted against two unlucky other musicians, while the entire album can be heard on Bandcamp, here.
Nice Friends (@ The Brunswick) – w/ Jess Newton, Route 500, The Gaslight Illuminati, Seadog, The Atom Jacks, Blue Spectre, Failed Psychics, Indigo Riot, Maz Clarke + Sister Wendy, Patients, Sypha, Princess Alice Manor, Katja Macabre, Weekend Death Cult & Spleen
…Someone call an ambulance. Actually, no – that’s not a rigorous schedule at all, not really. It is pretty cool, though. Nice to get out of town; nice to get back to town. Nice to play anywhere. Nice to be alive!
