Graham Duff’s Mixtape & random pixxx

My new track Eerie World got a play on Graham Duff’s Mixtape (Totally Radio) for 13 April – listen to the programme here – good company I’m in.

And here, just because, are some recent live pix – they have that blurry nightmare feel I so enjoy:


new Safehouse album: MNO (plus gig pix)

 

Another improv album from Safehouse Brighton – I’m on tracks 1, 17 & 19.  This is the fifth in a series of remote collaborations started over lockdown (am on every one except the first), so I’ll skip the blurb; enough to say it’s a big listen and a deep dive into freeform sound adventure.  It’s also possibly the lightest, most accessible volume so far; who knows what’ll happen when we reach the end of the alphabet…

That’s one extreme, so here’s the reverse – from the Rossi Bar gig in November showing the other end of what I do:

 

1) MF – 2) La Pequena Em – 3) Austerity – 4) Austerity/Gulls (photos by Jimmy Guest)

It’s been a blast, somewhat against expectation given how bleak things looked in January – hope to do a lot more next year, and that everyone’s 2022 is utterly fucking fab.

visual riches, Oct ’21

A brief whizz of noise from Bar 42 the other week – song is Ugly Man.

Here’s the recent Eight Miles High Club gig in Brighton…  had some good gigs lately, but this one had to be the most fun in a while – with 2) Fane 3) Melt Plastic Group & 4) the edge of an energetic crowd: all fantastic.

Feb gig review / visuals

“Matt played his guitar with menace tonight”

The gig went really well – thanks to Leisure Tank and headliners Skinny Milk.  We got reviewed, too, courtesy Plugged In Brighton – link here.  A brief video:

 

And a few pix (thanks to Mik Hanscomb.  The out-of-focus shots of the other bands are mine – I’m a musician, not a photojournalist… clearly):

…Onward to the next one.

 


live video & pix: Wildcard Quartet, 25 April

As part of my musical sideline as a (novice) member of the Safehouse collective, here’s some video footage – and photos – from the 25th April gig supporting Shatner’s Bassoon & Bolide, once again courtesy Agata Urbaniak:

It’s good to branch out…


live video/photos, Bar 42 April ’18 (Agata Urbaniak)

Fantastic, atmospheric photos by Agata Urbaniak – follow this link to Flickr for more

These were taken at Sunday’s Bar 42 gig, and include shots of Dran Krwawy, La Pequena Em, Kuroneko… I really like this photographer’s work, which captures the heightened, adrenalised feel of live performance better than most others I can think of – without resorting to any of the obvious moves – so it’s a thrill to be included.  Feast yr eyes, glut yr etc.

And for good measure, here’s a video of an unreleased song called Evil Relief :
