song of the day @ This Is Not A Drill

A feature on the EP from This Is Not A Drill

“…like with any good outsider, the more you listen to the songs, the more natural they become, and soon those quirks become hooks”

A write-up for Threaten Me With Your Love, to go with this one from withguitars.

live session, Radio Reverb: listen back

Here’s a live session / interview I did for Pete Jones the other day on Radio Reverb (at 33min 58 onwards)…

 

There’s two unrecorded new tracks – one so new  that I cocked up the intro twice, the suspense is incredible – and two from the forthcoming EP:

Not Too Far / Threaten Me with Your Love / Looking For A Genius / Moon Madness

There’s plenty of other tunes and chat, some of which took a weirdly confessional left-turn; a solid listen all round.  See if you can tell how wretched my hayfever was; I reckon it doesn’t show at all, but what do you think?

2 new-old free downloads (and a gig)

Here are two free downloads, moved across to Bandcamp from Soundcloud:

a BBC Introducing: South session with my previous live band…

 

…and a studio track recorded at the same time as Lilith and In The Evil Empire

 

Live-wise, my next gig’s in Brighton at Campbell Rd Studios, for these guys:

Please, feel free to pig out on all of the above.

 

 

next gigs: End Of The Trail, Blue Man BTN

Blurb:

Join us for our last Showcase night before the summer featuring…

The Decadent Dayze – everyone’s favourite, Syd Barrett in a 90’s garage rock band, what’s not to like? With Stephi Sky on drums….

Matt Finucane – Bowie spiked space oddity and part-time goth, with Mik Hanscomb on the drums. Don’t try to pretend!

Binky – Sagres-soacked Sway castaway Baz is joined by the enigmatic rainbow-killer Pete Wiseman for their first show together. Who knows what to expect? 

First band about 8.30

Free

…In a slight departure from the standard gig template, I’m neither solo acoustic nor playing with a full band this time, but have Mik joining me on drums.  This means improvisation, cheap FX pedals and hideous noise.  Fake-psych!  (Psych-faux?)
