Guitars? Who Cares – gig with band, Brighton 8th Oct

event link here

So I’m playing at this all-day celebration of noise on Sunday, with bass and drums and a loud electric guitar again.  We’re on about 6pm, but I can recommend arriving earlier: check that line-up.

5 quid, 11 bands, 9 hours of mind-smashing volume in Brighton’s best, most dimly-lit venue.  Sounds like heaven to me.

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?

Gig, Brighton, 16th Feb – w/ Greenness & Sam Cutting

 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.

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, enough).

…Anyway, doors at 7.30 and music from 8 sharp x

Some photos by Heather Johnson of last night’s Green Door Store gig (except no. 4, by Phil of Spinning Chilli).

Went very well, especially for a first gig as a duo.  A piercingly high note to finish 2016 on.


Kind words from Shindig Magazine, radio play & GIG

recommendation indeed

Shindig Magazine had some good words for Lilith – see above.

Doing a free gig in Brighton tonight at Molly Malone’s for StrungOut Music.  Onstage early, 8:30ish, which means I’ll probably still be sober.

You can hear Lilith on RoundSound Radio – looks like a good show, all kindsa stuff going on.  That’s from 8pm this eve.

Finally… got a nice (brief) write-up from SupaJam, complete with Soundcloud link.

So that’s 3 different ways you can check out the song for yourself, since I’ll also be playing it live: have a reckon.
