same room, different nights (plus tour news)

purple = pix by Mike Hackett * blue/green = Mik Hanscomb

It was fun to lose our minds in a small, packed room – photos from two gigs at The Pipeline in Brighton.

Back there again in August, plus some out-of-town dates:

Wed 10 Aug – Peer Hat (Manchester) – w/ Kodak Kid & Good Boy Niko
Thu 11 Aug – Pipeline (Brighton) 8pm, £5 – w/ Nil By Habit & The Wondering Weskits
Fri 12 Aug – Paradiddles (Worcester)
Sat 20 Aug – Yuck Club @ Trinity Bar (Harrow) 8pm, £5/4 – w/Astoria, Pest Band & Elliot Cook

…Might be a few more to add, we’ll see.  Onwards into the airless, sweaty void xx

 

Graham Duff’s Mixtape & random pixxx

My new track Eerie World got a play on Graham Duff’s Mixtape (Totally Radio) for 13 April – listen to the programme here – good company I’m in.

And here, just because, are some recent live pix – they have that blurry nightmare feel I so enjoy:

live vid! (London, Feb ’22)


A rough & ready phone vid of the recent gig at Biddle Bros in London, courtesy Sad House Daddy.  It captures the atmosphere – my guitar’s out of tune, the lunatics are slamdancing, the music’s very loud: it’s the full set.  Enjoy!

Can’t Cheat Karma! Washing Up Time! (2 new releases)

I’ve got 2 new pieces of music on 2 different releases:

There’s Can’t Cheat Karma’s benefit album for Brighton Unemployed Centre Families Project:

“BUCFP provides practical support, education, advice and much more to the unemployed and those in poor living conditions, benefit claimants, the unwaged, pensioners, families and those on low incomes.
Download it, tell all yr friends, send us money. All profits go to BUCFP.”

Washing Up Time, released by Spirit of Gravity:

 

– The first features shitloads of punk & punk-adjacent bands like Austerity, Idle Bones, Ferox Fucking Ferox, Mules & others, plus a new track of mine.

– The second’s a compilation from Brighton’s foremost experimental electronic collective (SoG, celebrating 21 years of promoting gigs).  There’s 36 tracks of foaming noise terror, including an instrumental from me, all based around a recording of Nil By Nose washing up.

I urge you to check them out on the links above, buy them & play them obsessively – both are out now.

EDIT: just heard my track from Washing Up got played on Lost Property‘s Totally Radio show, The Damping Wells – listen here

new Safehouse album: MNO (plus gig pix)

 

Another improv album from Safehouse Brighton – I’m on tracks 1, 17 & 19.  This is the fifth in a series of remote collaborations started over lockdown (am on every one except the first), so I’ll skip the blurb; enough to say it’s a big listen and a deep dive into freeform sound adventure.  It’s also possibly the lightest, most accessible volume so far; who knows what’ll happen when we reach the end of the alphabet…

That’s one extreme, so here’s the reverse – from the Rossi Bar gig in November showing the other end of what I do:

 

1) MF – 2) La Pequena Em – 3) Austerity – 4) Austerity/Gulls (photos by Jimmy Guest)

It’s been a blast, somewhat against expectation given how bleak things looked in January – hope to do a lot more next year, and that everyone’s 2022 is utterly fucking fab.
