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?

live session, Radio Reverb TONIGHT

Mon Oct 12th: am playing a live session for Pete Jones on Radio Reverb 97.2FM tonight, which can be heard on the wireless or streamed live here.  It goes out from 6-8PM, with a repeat on Friday at noon (see above).  I’ll be doing songs old & new, and probably chatting a bit.


Brighton Unsigned interview, Sept ’15

Btn Unsd INT iii

shiny shiny, shiny printed paper…

Here’s a link to an interview in the new issue of Brighton Unsigned (page 9).  If you’re local, an old-skool print version can be picked up in various venues… although they tend to go quick.

Pleased with how it turned out – it’s nice to be asked – and amusingly enough, they spelled my name wrong on the cover and above the article, but not in the text.  Hmmmmm


BBC session – retrospect

The BBC Introducing: South live session we played is up on their site for the next 5 days, here.

We’ll get a recording of our songs, which were spread out across the broadcast, so I’ll probably upload it here &/or to Soundcloud at some point…  Till then, check out the programme.  It includes an interview, which I think went okay – the top of my head was spinning off somewhere in the upper atmosphere at the time on sheer adrenaline.  Managed not to swear or otherwise disgrace myself – somehow.

In all, sounded nice and crunchy; in fact we were ear-splittingly loud.  No idea how the sound engineer made sense of this tidal sheet of fuzz, but what went on-air was magicked into something very tight and coherent, more so as we progressed.  The fact we were lean, ready and up for it must’ve helped too.

Abiding memory?  How swift and efficient the whole operation was – totally hassle-free, nice people to deal with – and, uh, playing with a big cardboard cut-out of Beloved National Treasure (and in my book, twat) David Jason as Del Boy, right in my eyeline.  That and the chundering monotony of football, everywhere, inescapable.

No, seriously though: it was a pleasure.  Had thought I was shackled to the acoustic guitar forevermore, minorly-doomed never again to wring whorls of feedback out of a hard-driven amp… Happily, I was wrong.

interviewed / album release Monday 25th July

Well.  This coming Monday the album’s on sale – Bandcamp, Amazon, you name it.  CD copies can be had at gigs.

Been working toward this for so long, it’s kind of hard to take in; I’m very happy with the album, but it’s the creation of an earlier self enduring some difficult times (and mining them for music).  In fact, I’ve already made significant progress on the follow-up.

Still, it’s quite a piece of work.  Judge for yourself, as of Monday 25th July.

Good to hear it on the airwaves, too: in the run-up to release, did an interview yesterday on Radio Reverb  here in Brighton with Jeff Hemmings.  It went smoothly well, had a couple of tracks played, talked nonsense, did my best not to laugh like a loon.  (It was fun, I was buzzed with adrenaline and due-ness of album – what the hell.)

So what’s next?  Gigs.  As many as I can get.  O yes.
