Overdrive interview &c &c…

Krautrock!!! The Overdrive interview

Hope & Ruin gig went well – although enough’s happened since that it now feels like a vague, fond childhood memory – and the band gets ever more awesome: from early next year we’re doing more gigs, with new material to play.

I’ve got another meaty interview in Irish rock zine Overdrive – read here.  Also, German indie radio’s NBT put Disquiet at 55 on their 410-album Best Of 2018, which as plaudits go is pretty heady: some of the names I beat are big and legendary (of course it’s not a contest… is it?… but a gong’s always welcome).

Anyway, big plans for 2019, including a new solo album and our first recordings as a group – starting February, probably.  Here we are in that happy era of five weeks ago:

l-r: MF, Barney Guy, Stephen Bad Mother-Folker

Guitars Who Cares gig pix

Photos of the band onstage at the Guitars Who Cares all-dayer, put on by Poupee Visage at Green Door Store (as you just might be able to tell from the glowing backdrop).  They’re grainy because they’re stills from a video camera – sadly the footage was unusable because we were too loud for the mic.  It was a good gig.


2 new-old free downloads (and a gig)

Here are two free downloads, moved across to Bandcamp from Soundcloud:

a BBC Introducing: South session with my previous live band…

 

…and a studio track recorded at the same time as Lilith and In The Evil Empire

 

Live-wise, my next gig’s in Brighton at Campbell Rd Studios, for these guys:

Please, feel free to pig out on all of the above.

Some photos of Thursday’s full-band gig.  Mik and Steve sounded great – dead showbiz.


a band (definite)… some gigs (rumoured)

Not been idle, as the ultra-swift sketch above shows – that’s me playing guitar at an open mic, you can tell by the eyebrows.

Been testing out a lot of new songs lately, getting a heavy slab of stage-time over the last few months – some of it transcendent, some of it pure fucking grim.  But even the misfires excite me.

Okay, enough brand-management.  What news?  Put together an electric band end of last year, just a three-piece but very powerful and much more simpatico – in both senses – than my previous attempt, which was fine but hardly built to last.  Our first gig will be here in Brighton sometime around 30th March, details still tbc.  Before then I’ll be back at the Coach House with Sam Cutting on Thur 16th Feb – more info soon.

May this glorious new year bring you a few moments’ respite from the crushing fear and horror
