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
…In a slight departure from the standard gig template, I’m neither solo acoustic nor playing with a full band this time, but will be cranking up the electric guitar (any excuse, really) with Mik joining me on drums. This means it’ll be looser, spacier and more improvised: it’s fair to say you’re getting something unique this time.
(Hang on a second, “part-time goth”?!? What the fuck…?)
Thursday night with the band was superb (and I hope to have some video footage up swiftly). We’ll be back, but in the meantime… sooner than anticipated… I’ve got a solo gig coming up in a fortnight, on Saturday 29th. Well, it’s always nice to be asked.
I’ll be stretching out a bit with a 45-minute set, the venue’s great, Mick of Pelirocco Platters is doing a DJ set – and it’s free entry.
All hail the bonus!

My next one’s a solo effort, for Agony Magazine at Maxim’s in Eastbourne. Might do a longer set, and some of it will be filmed – also, it’s free entry. Since my latest gigs have all been like pushing a giant glowing crystal out of the realm of dreams and spells – into the world of reality – with waves of super-intense psychic energy… or something along those lines… it promises well.
It’s also the last acoustic set I’ll do for a little while, as the band’s about to get underway and throw out some noise. So – all very exciting. Speaking of recent gigs, here’s a photo from the Coach House a few days ago:

First gig of 2017, and a very auspicious start – playing at the Coach House, the most fascinating venue in Brighton, with Sam Cutting and Greenness. Last time I played there, I was attacked by giant spiders lowered from the ceiling – it was Halloween, but even so…
The format’s interesting too: each act plays two sets of 15 minutes, which nixes the idea of Headliner vs. Underlings and adds variety for you, the discerning listener who’s smart and wonderful enough to come along (okay, leave it there before I creep myself out).
…Anyway, doors at 7.30 and music from 8 sharp x
