EP launch & gig

event link here

My new EP comes out today (25th Oct), and I’m doing a gig on Sun 29th for Brighton Noise to mark the launch.  It’s beyond cool to be asked to play by them – plus ChrySalliss Presents – on a bill with Cali Santo and local legends The Long Goodbye.

Following that, there are more gigs across the UK: check back for updates.

EP can be found on Bandcamp here

plus Amazon, iTunes & Spotify

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.



next gigs: End Of The Trail, Blue Man BTN

Dazed & Awake presents –

Fukushima Dolphin,
a rock band with striking melodies, powerful harmonies, a sea of guitars and synthesised leads.

Matt Finucane
singer/writer/horror freak Matt Finucane takes his influences from Lou Reed, Mark E Smith and horrible electronic noise (despite primarily performing on acoustic guitar)

Broken Ears
Broken Ears fuse americana and blues influences with a sense of urgency and energy derived from their punk rock roots to create an eclectic mess of sounds.

Free entry from 8pm

GIG – electric guitar, 4th May, Brighton

Join us for our last Showcase night before the summer featuring…

The Decadent Dayze – everyone’s favourite, Syd Barrett in a 90’s garage rock band, what’s not to like? With Stephi Sky on drums….

Matt Finucane – Bowie spiked space oddity and part-time goth, with Mik Hanscomb on the drums. Don’t try to pretend!

Binky – Sagres-soacked Sway castaway Baz is joined by the enigmatic rainbow-killer Pete Wiseman for their first show together. Who knows what to expect? 

First band about 8.30


…In a slight departure from the standard gig template, I’m neither solo acoustic nor playing with a full band this time, but have Mik joining me on drums.  This means improvisation, cheap FX pedals and hideous noise.  Fake-psych!  (Psych-faux?)
