Dazed & Awake presents –
a rock band with striking melodies, powerful harmonies, a sea of guitars and synthesised leads.
singer/writer/horror freak Matt Finucane takes his influences from Lou Reed, Mark E Smith and horrible electronic noise (despite primarily performing on acoustic guitar)
Broken Ears fuse americana and blues influences with a sense of urgency and energy derived from their punk rock roots to create an eclectic mess of sounds.…
Free entry from 8pm

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 have Mik joining me on drums. This means improvisation, cheap FX pedals and hideous noise. Fake-psych! (Psych-faux?)
EDIT – pix:
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.
amazing what you can do with £0.00
Am playing a free all-day gig in London – Smile Acoustic @ RichMix, E1 – this Monday (25th). On 4pm-ish, I think. There’s loads of musicians involved – here’s the event page. Looks fun.
Also, been recording another full-length effort lately… Self-produced, micro-budget, with assists here and there from talented friends. It already sounds exciting, might even end up as the best thing I’ve done so far.
Anyway, come to the gig and hear some of the songs that’ll be on it.
Well, you takes your vote and you makes your choice. And the nation has chosen. For FUCK’S SAKE (yes, I fully understand the concept of democratic representation – that’s what makes it so depressing).
Instead of curling up and weeping with despair, I’ve got a gig – Thur 14th May, Icarus Club @ Pelton Arms, Greenwich, free entry, doors 8pm. The format’s a bit different: all 5 acts do 2 short sets each. Also appearing are Bruise, Yeti Love, Charlie Hole Music & Little Beach.
It’ll be great, and in an Age of AUSTERITY it’s free to get in. Come!
