visual riches, Oct ’21

A brief whizz of noise from Bar 42 the other week – song is Ugly Man.

Here’s the recent Eight Miles High Club gig in Brighton…  had some good gigs lately, but this one had to be the most fun in a while – with 2) Fane 3) Melt Plastic Group & 4) the edge of an energetic crowd: all fantastic.

compilation album feature, plus GIGS

My track Envy The Birds (LP version) appears on this compilation from Aldora Britain Records, ‘King For A Day’.

In their own words of blurb, “AB Records is an e-zine and record label that promotes the music and work of authentic independent or underground artists from all around the world”, and – unlike some in this line – refreshingly legit and non-scammy… A shame that’s the exception rather than the norm…  Anyway, there’s 25 tracks (mine’s 11th), including psych, fuzz, folk & coldwave; mine brings the art rock progressiveness, it says here. 

It’s a song I’m proud of, and happy it’s getting a bit more exposure; incidentally, the slimmed-down radio edit just got a share on Point of View Promotions‘ Soundcloud, if you’d like to hear it with no second verse.

Gigs?  Gigs:

(Looks a bit like I own shares in the Rossi Bar – sadly I don’t, it’s just the odd way these things work out sometimes.)

So I finally got the go-ahead for another gig in this our post-visitation yr 2021: I’m promoting this one (and one day I’ll stop putting myself lowest on the bill), so you know it’ll be pharmaceutical quality.

After such a long lay-off it feels like a big deal, although the thing itself’s fairly low-key…  Well, I say that, but it features the immensely talented and fascinating Oli Spleen (with friends, in Gaslight Illuminati guise) & unique polymathic genius R Dyer.

Come see.

(NB. it doesn’t matter much, but this gig was originally scheduled for 2 July – I just copy-pasted the original post and changed the date/artwork.  If it happens again, might leave this here as a monument to modest, albeit doomed, ambition.  But that’s loser talk! …I hope.)
