Here are three songs taken from last month’s London gig – In The Evil Empire, Self Possession and Moon Madness.  Scrutinize at leisure.

 amazing what you can do with £0.00

 Am playing a free all-day gig in London – Smile Acoustic @ RichMix, E1 – this Monday (25th).  On 4pm-ish, I think.  There’s loads of musicians involved – here’s the event page.  Looks fun.

Also, been recording another full-length effort lately…  Self-produced, micro-budget, with assists here and there from talented friends.  It already sounds exciting, might even end up as the best thing I’ve done so far.

Anyway, come to the gig and hear some of the songs that’ll be on it.


1st gig under new evil regime: 14th May, LDN

 Well, you takes your vote and you makes your choice.  And the nation has chosen.  For FUCK’S SAKE (yes, I fully understand the concept of democratic representation – that’s what makes it so depressing).

Instead of curling up and weeping with despair, I’ve got a gig – Thur 14th May, Icarus Club @ Pelton Arms, Greenwich, free entry, doors 8pm.  The format’s a bit different: all 5 acts do 2 short sets each.  Also appearing are Bruise, Yeti Love, Charlie Hole Music & Little Beach.

It’ll be great, and in an Age of AUSTERITY it’s free to get in.  Come!
