Eight Miles High, Sept ’22: pixxx

action shots by Charlotte Horton – Eight Miles High Club, Brighton, 30 Sept ’22

Just because, here are some photos from last week’s Eight Miles High gig at the Prince Albert… Also features Barney on drums, Be Kind Cadaver getting all up in yr bizness & 2/5 of Codex Serafini being incredible.  It was a very nice night, and a sweaty one – if you weren’t there I pity you, I really do x


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 :
