EP on Youtube // GIG details, New Cross Inn

A remastered version of the Self Possession EP is on Youtube.  It features some truly diseased noises, now louder and in sharper definition – give it a whirl.

Some new details on Thur 20 Oct gig at the New Cross Inn, London – event page here:

Beach Coma
A blues/punk/garage rock ‘n’ roll band from Rotterdam with a raw and energetic sound.

The Asif Outlaws
Hard rocking foursome from London

The Virtues
The Virtues, from the depths of Suffolk, are an alternative rock original four piece band doing solely what they love to do.

Matt Finucane
“Pushing the idea of one-man and his guitar to its limits. With a noticeable Lou Reed influence, his songs move between gentle laments to attacks on his guitar that teeter on a knife-edge. Matt pulls all this of with a suave cool and a voice that echos Jeff Buckley and Nick Cave.” – CMU

£3 Entry / 7pm Doors

…Given that I’m on a bill with three loud guitar bands (which is how I like it), have put together a suitably hardcore set – no sensitive ballads and downbeat, dreamy strummings here.  Looking forward to it.

2 London gigs for October

Gig #1 happens in daylight – and outdoors – at 12 noon.  Playing a 45min set, free – that’s undeniable value, my friends.

Gig #2 is at the New Cross Inn supporting The Virtues, £3 entry.  It’s a superb venue and looks to be a great night.

(Promise I won’t burst into flames in daylight…)


…and I didn’t catch fire.  Onstage at the 1st gig (is that Buddha?)


December gig advance notice – supporting I, Ludicrous @ Green Door Store

 This is waaay early… but advance warning of an Xmas gig I’m doing in Brighton, courtesy of Spinning Chilli Presents.

As you can see from the flyer above, it’s supporting I, Ludicrous (for the second time…) and Helen McCookerybook.

Been trying out a lot of new songs lately, and looking into working with other musicians again – so I can promise something you won’t have seen before.  Stick it on your advent calendar!

Overhead Wires: The Trident! Gig, Dec 7th


event page here

 After a brief – and involuntary – spell of inactivity, it’s time to gig again and air some new songs…  And where better than at an Overhead Wires night here in Brighton specifically geared to just that.  It’s free, there’s loads of splendid acts; but don’t take my word for it, gaze on the blurb:

“The Trident” is back!!!

After enjoying a popular run from June 2012 to April 2013, we have decided to bring back our showcase dedicated purposefully to new material.

The aim of the game is to provide an intimate acoustic stage for artists to road test and try out their new songs in a relaxed atmosphere so that they can receive experience and feedback on their new works.

With 8 scheduled perfomers playing approximately 3 songs, the gig provides an excellent networking opportunity for songwriters whilst also gives music lovers a chance to check out something completely new!

Performing on 7th December (in no particular order):




Free Entry

The Quadrant, 12-13 North Street Quadrant, Brighton, BN1 3GJ

Age Restrictions:


 …To be honest, just felt too fucking lazy to type all that out.  Looks good though, doesn’t it.  Come – I have surprises in store; and may well also be my final gig this year, so be great to see some faces to greet.

Halloween GIG of inspired madness

C Hse Halloween

be afraid… but be intrigued, too

I’m a Dark Spider, apparently.  Or maybe performing solo & jumping out of a coffin at people.  Anyway, got no idea what to expect – other than it’ll be great – and here’s a link.

It’s At The Coach House, and therefore will be mental & beyond… Also ties in neatly as a celebration of Lilith coming out.
…And as an exaltation of the evil spirits of the unclean dead rising to destroy the living, of course. All good wholesome fun.

“Happy Happy Halloween, Sil-verrr Shaaamrock!”  x
