Hectic Night – free LP, 27 April

A free LP out Mon 27th, if you’d like one, with a simple premise: the band, playing our set in a studio, a few weeks before the lockdown hammer fell – just because.

Listen/download/enjoy.  Three sample tracks in the link above…

recorded live at Audiobeach (Brighton), 16 Jan 2020

vox / gtr: MF
bass: Stephen Parker
drums: Barney Guy

Quarantune / new release / socially distant

 

Dexter Bentley’s Hello GoodBye Show on Resonance FM played a new song of mine, Caught Making Signals, as part of QUARANTUNE on Sat 4 April: “Enjoy the first flowers of lockdown in the form of new music written in response to the current pandemic”.  Strictly speaking, my contribution was written and recorded before all this blew up, but it seems to fit regardless.  See what you think – links above.

Am going to release a free album of the recording session that track was taken from: the band, live in the studio, one very hectic night… Date to follow!

Still haven’t done any live streaming on facebook or wherever yet, but mean to get my shit together soon – even if the idea of it feels a bit like making a model ocean liner out of toothpicks in a hermit’s cell.  Again, date/s to follow (maybe).

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:
