…Someone call an ambulance.  Actually, no – that’s not a rigorous schedule at all, not really. It is pretty cool, though. Nice to get out of town; nice to get back to town. Nice to play anywhere. Nice to be alive!


Feb gig review / visuals

“Matt played his guitar with menace tonight”

The gig went really well – thanks to Leisure Tank and headliners Skinny Milk.  We got reviewed, too, courtesy Plugged In Brighton – link here.  A brief video:

 

And a few pix (thanks to Mik Hanscomb.  The out-of-focus shots of the other bands are mine – I’m a musician, not a photojournalist… clearly):

…Onward to the next one.

 


Feb gig & a new song on the radio

Next gig’s with Skinny Milk & Leisure Tank on Wed 26 Feb at the Prince Albert here in Brighton, and will be hellish noisy.  Lots more to follow, too (in fact, got stuff lined up till July already)…
A live studio recording of a new song can be heard on the Garden of Earthly Delights show, 1BTN FM.  The song’s called A Friend From Far Away, and is about halfway in (track 12).  It’s an eclectic show, with something for all but the most jaded, sordid and glutted.  Have a dabble:
 

interview / LP review / August gig news

“We all choose our suffering. There is ugly suffering and there is beautiful suffering. You, I think, are somewhere in between”

That’s a quote from an interview I did with The Sound Lab, here.  (One of the more… interesting audience responses I’ve had in a while, that was.)

There’s also a review of Vanishing Island in print and online in Devolution Magazine – a good one, check it out here.

…Another full-throat shout-out for the August gig:
