gig review, Plugged In Brighton 4 (June)

 

The 11 June Hope & Ruin gig, written up in issue 4 of Plugged In Brighton.  Grab a copy round town, unless distance and/or the forces of entropy prevent you (you’ll just have to move to Brighton).  Anyway, it was a very nice night, good to see the other acts getting due credit.  While we’re here… Can I direct you once more to the zine’s latest Mixcloud, which features an old track of mine?  Here it is.


Metal likeness, 25mm

Badges… badges everywhere

A strange feeling, putting yr image into a 25mm metal circle.  How do bands cope with their gormless faces plastered all over T-shirts and other… “merch”?  Come to a gig and take these damn things away.

This is the next one…

…But there are several more to come, including a third go with Safehouse in the Wildcard Quartet, end of June.  Details here, as they become available.  Anyway, ask me for a badge and you can have one.


11 June gig, Hope & Ruin, PLUS: 69X TV and other stories

My next full-band gig’s on Mon 11 June at the Hope & Ruin, with Pink Narcissus, Peter Cat & Lewis McKale.  I’ll be onstage from 8:30, with a new drummer and new songs – truly, playing with the big boys…

Before that, there’s a return to Mr Wolf’s in Bristol (tomorrow!) and another go at Bar 42 in Worthing (electric this time).  I chase the phantom wherever it leads, till the oil runs out and the lights go off.

I love a blog entry studded with enticing blue links.  So – another track from the new EP can be heard on the second Mixcloud from Plugged In Brighton, and pretty soon I’ll be appearing on the third 69X Music TV show – news of that soon.  Here’s me playing live to camera in 30-degree heat:
