3(!) interviews & 1 EP review, Oct ’18

So the new EP’s bagged me several more interviews, following on from Big Issue North and AltCorner… with, if I say it myself, very little repetition and zero rambling.

There’s also a review, courtesy The RingMaster: “a mix of challenge and seduction but most of all a fascination leaning towards needing more”… Hey, I’ll take it.

Here are the links:

Sonic Shocks interview “my feet were floating a couple of inches above the floor and everything was blue round the edges”

Whisperin and Hollerin interview I got a lot of abuse growing up in England with an Irish surname, so it feels good to parade it now

Riff Media interview “I’d be seduced by power […] my hands coated with blood and my soul shrunken to a burnt piece of popcorn, then end my days in front of a firing squad”

…There’s stuff about songwriting, inspirations and the dodgy reality of being an independent artist in 2018.  Also, the EP’s being streamed by Puregrain Audio, here.  So yeah, you can listen and/or read as the mood takes you – with more to come yet.


Big Issue North interview, Oct ’18

“this little honesty nugget could poison my future…”

The link above takes you to a lengthy interview I did with Big Issue North recently (then had to keep quiet about for a while).  It was a buzz, and hopefully makes a good read – covering such things as:

What informs your music and songwriting?

What’s on your rider?

and

What’s your worst lyric?

…among others.  A lot of words, so I’ll just leave it there for you to take a look.


Lilith: 1st review (Monolith Cocktail, Oct 9th)

Take a look at this – the other artists are very check-outable, too, loads of stuff to read / listen to – give your mindbrain & earbulbs a treat.

(Just as well I take note of these things, as the review seems to have vanished.  I’d think it was my imagination otherwise – MF In The Future)


Unpeeled album review + TOUR NEWS

The 13th August update of Unpeeled has very positive things to say about Glow in the Dark – “once in a blue one, you come across something of genuine interest”, for a start – and I’ve taken the liberty of quoting the entire review on the Press page.  Go to the site, though, it’s all good writing (and they clearly have excellent taste, eh?  Eh?!?).

Tomorrow sees the first date of MINOTAUR – South Seas Live in Sheffield.  Facebook pg for that specific gig here.

Wish me luck – or a gloriously messy death. x


GLOW IN THE DARK out today – reviewed by Whiteboard Project

GLOW IN THE DARK – album #2 – is now available from Bandcamp, Amazon, Spotify & iTunes.  And the rest.  My advice is get it from Bandcamp, where it comes with extras.

It’s been reviewed by Whiteboard Project, here.  (Scroll down, it’s the second or third item.)  It “will infuriate some and delight others […] Highly recommended”.   Amen to that.

On top of this, I’m part of a brief tour from 15th – 19th August.


Brighton Souce & Ringmaster Reviews: Glow in the Dark x2

Two more reviews for Glow in the Dark, first from Stu Huggett in Brighton Source magazine:

…And second from Ringmaster Reviews, here.  An ambivalent one, this – “at times not easy to get a handle on”, but “to ignore it would be a mistake”… and “a sinister caress with less than healthy intentions which leaves one rattled but needing to feel its shadows again”(!).  Still, it’s in-depth, which is aces with me.  And uncertainty isn’t a bad thing… I’ve evoked some colourful images in the writer’s head: my work is done.


more press & BBC session news

Here’s another write-up for Hard Science from is this music?  Good again: I’m a punk poet prepared to push the boat out, it sez.  Damn right.

The BBC Introducing: South session takes place next Sunday, 24th June – more details as soon as I have them (probably tomorrow).  Exciting stuff.


God Is In The TV reviews Hard Science, 10th May

Good ink…

Here’s a review of forthcoming single Hard Science on God Is In The TV’s site.

It’s a good one: “If these two avant-pop tracks are anything to go by then the album should be, at the least, intriguing.”

Read the article, listen to the tracks when they’re released at the end of this very month, and see if you agree.  (In fact, Hard Science can be heard on the Bandcamp player at the top of this page.  If you like, you can watch the video, too.)
