nice & friendly: a festival

event link here

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

Safehouse 6 – an improv epic

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.

same room, different nights (plus tour news)

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:

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!
