gig cancellations (March onwards)

All gigs cancelled for the forseeable, unfortunately – but I hope to reschedule, once the Covid crisis is under some semblance of control.

I’ll very likely do something on Facebook live or Youtube quite soon, as much to ward off going stir crazy as anything… Keep an eye out, will update on here as & when.

Take care and thanks for listening – be well

Feb gig review / visuals

“Matt played his guitar with menace tonight”

The gig went really well – thanks to Leisure Tank and headliners Skinny Milk.  We got reviewed, too, courtesy Plugged In Brighton – link here.  A brief video:

 

And a few pix (thanks to Mik Hanscomb.  The out-of-focus shots of the other bands are mine – I’m a musician, not a photojournalist… clearly):

…Onward to the next one.

 

Feb gig & a new song on the radio

Next gig’s with Skinny Milk & Leisure Tank on Wed 26 Feb at the Prince Albert here in Brighton, and will be hellish noisy.  Lots more to follow, too (in fact, got stuff lined up till July already)…
A live studio recording of a new song can be heard on the Garden of Earthly Delights show, 1BTN FM.  The song’s called A Friend From Far Away, and is about halfway in (track 12).  It’s an eclectic show, with something for all but the most jaded, sordid and glutted.  Have a dabble:

gig & EP review, Dec ’19

 

MF, Barney, Stephen, 11 Dec

On the whole, I’ve really enjoyed putting on some DIY gigs this year – it’s been stressful at times (for purely organisational reasons – all the other bands have been lovely)… but very much worth it.  This last one went very well, and here’s a review from Plugged in Brighton to testify:

“…high-grade alt-rock. Matt’s guitar playing was muscular and twisted whilst the rhythm section kept pace and added to a heavy sound that was tough without being obvious.”

So thanks to them – and to Idle Bones and Adam & Elvis for being fucking superb.

On the subject of reviews, here’s one of the EP from Whisperin and Hollerin:

“…And so it is that over the course of 4 songs and 20 minutes, Matt Finucane demonstrates that he’s a singular artistic voice in a sea of sameness, and if 2019 has seen him establish himself, 2020 looks like being the year he takes it to the next level.”

Well, hope so.  This year’s not over yet, of course – couple more gigs to come – and in January we’re back in the studio.  So who knows?  If nothing else, be interesting to see what happens next.
