I’m on first at 8 sharp… Doors 7.30pm, adv tickets £6 from Resident Records & wegottickets.com here, or £8 on the night.
And when I hit the stage, it won’t be alone – Mik Hanscomb 0f Junkboy is joining me on guitar…
More daylight! How will I cope?! …Next gig’s an afternooner in London, onstage 3pm on Sun 4 Dec, playing a 45min set. EDIT: gig time’s been shifted to evening, now onstage 7pm
The New Cross Inn gig went well – I’m all in favour of bare-bones, no-frills gigs in the corner of a pub (although I fit very oddly with that kind of thing)… but give me a stage, proper lights, monitors and real volume any day. Distance, artificiality, drama. That’s the way. See:
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:
The Asif Outlaws
Hard rocking foursome from London
“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.
Gig #1 happens in daylight – and outdoors – at 12 noon. Playing a 45min set, free – that’s undeniable value, my friends.
(Promise I won’t burst into flames in daylight…)
EDITED TO ADD:
…and I didn’t catch fire. Onstage at the 1st gig (is that Buddha?)
This is waaay early… but advance warning of an Xmas gig I’m doing in Brighton, courtesy of Spinning Chilli Presents.
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!
