Hi folks. I’ve been in practice mode with Joincey (Coits, Inca Eyeball, Stuckometer etc) today sorting out a set for these gigs I’ve got coming up. Pascal Nichols of Part Wild Horseys fame is definitely in for them as well so I’m very pleased. The songs will get to live in proper band mode! Mint.
More details to follow but these in May as well:
25th May – Manchester
26th May – Bradford
Have a great bank holiday weekend! I’m having a little housewarming do and putting pictures up on the walls.
I’m playing a gig on the 16th April in Manchester which I’m thrilled about! I’m so happy to have my dear Joincey along and a good chance that equally dear Pascal Nichols will be there too playing my songs as a kinda ‘backing band’. Expect wild keytar and drum machine solos, I feel it in my bones.
It’s at a working art space called The Penthouse on the 16th April. Here’s some info about the other bands playing:
TG GONDARD (fr)
GAEL MOISSONNIER (fr)
Both french artists/musicians are now living in Brussels, Belgium. Expect two very different and personal approaches of either experimental lo-fi pop and improvised experimental noise synthesis. One of TG Gondard’s latest record has been released by Not Not Fun records. G. Moissonnier’s first solo tape is due very soon on the always great looking Winebox press…
Rosanne Roberston (Manch)
Robertson is an artist working with action sound and moving image. She was recently selected as an emerging live artist and ‘provocateur’ of Manchester for Dazed Digital- the online home of magazine Dazed and Confused http://www.dazeddigital.com/artsandculture/article/14117/1/doodlebug-selects-rosanne-robertson the article gives a little further background to her practice.
This gig is £3 unwaged and £4 waged.

Got a couple of other shows in March in Bradford and Manchester again but more about that later X
Nice poster eh? Should be a good gig..
My mate Chrissy has organised a gig at Power Lunches on the 18th December. It’s a show where all the proceeds go to St Mungo’s who are a front facing charity supporting the homeless. I regularly work with their hostel in Clapham so I am more than happy to play this gig and raise some funds for them.

I’m going to play a bunch of Christmas song covers so should be fun… I’ve been told not to reveal which songs I’m going to play but here’s a few examples of my faves for you to get an idea.
