ph hd 3

o sweet lord it’s happening again… EVENT LINK

As you can see, this gig happens on Wed 9 Sept At The Coach House… If you don’t know about this venue, you should.  Same goes for the performers – I’m not playing this time, am just the door-bitch, but in ascending order we have:

Shonalika – one of the best singer-songwriters in a town full of ’em

Crysi di Milo – excoriating spoken word mayhem

& headliners Broken Ears – so tight and heavy it’s frankly SCARY

Music from 8pm, no messing.  The hound of pleasure calls! x

The Phantom Hound gig went down on Wednesday, and here on my Facebook page are some great photos taken by Andrea Shamlou – all the artists, all the atmosphere, the very smells themselves.

Many thanks to those who came, those who played, and those who supported in other ways: it was a blast.  Hopefully I’ll do it all again in September, but different.  x


GIG, 8th July, Brighton – PHANTOM HOUND presents…

cute, isn’t he

 EVENT page

This is going to be a very interesting gig.  (In a good way.)

It features super-powerful performance poet Gary Goodman, renowned multi-instrumental improviser Alistair Strachan, some attention-whore with an Irish surname that’s hard to pronounce, and devastatingly dark new talent Rochelle McLean.

And it happens in one of the – if not thecoolest venues in Brighton.  Wed 8 July, folks.  It may be Summer, but BRING BACK DARKNESS.


launch gig video – 2 songs with horns

Here’s an extract from the launch gig, as threatened – two songs (In The Evil Empire & Self Possession, which features improvisation and death-cries).  It was a lovely night, and hopefully this captures some of the energy.  Have a look:

It went very well indeed – thanks to all who came, and I’ll probably stick some video highlights on Youtube soon.


SINGLE RELEASE & LAUNCH GIG

In The Evil Empire is released today by The Animal Farm – it can be bought on Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon and all the others.  I even have some CDs, but those are for sale at gigs.

Speaking of gigs, there’s a launch event in 2 days here in Brighton – Phantom Hound #1 in Kemptown.  The venue (At The Coach House) is unusual and the lineup’s great.  Also, it’s free.

Here’s the single’s artwork in all its splendid ugliness:
