pulling at the threads

Last weekend myself and the wonderful Lee Allatson played a short improvised set at the Under The Radar weekender put on by Magic Teapot and Echoloaction.  It was a really enjoyable set, playing on the floor & feeling our way in the darkened room. Below is a video of the second half of our set, gradually pulling at the threads of the sounds we’d made and reducing them to a new quiet. A massive thank you to whoever filmed this, I am most grateful.

 

Guitars in the gallery

Yet more shaky handheld phone footage -this time of me panning round the main hall of the Attenborugh Arts Centre in readiness for the Performing Industry show with Rattle on Thursday 27th July. It’s not often you get chances to play nice quiet spaces like this and to be collaborating with one of the best bands around is, quite frankly, blowing my mind!

Come on down!

Handmade! And a video!

Super delighted to reveal I’ve been asked to play this year’s Handmade on Friday 2nd of May at The Guildhall, Leicester. I have never played the Guildhall – an old historical building next to the Cathedral, which holds a special memeroy for me as I saw I am Spartacus there, officially the nearest I ever got to seeing Bob Tilton. Not sure what i’ll be doing yet but Her Name is Calla (who are headlining the Guildhall friday) are soundtracking a film live so there’s scope for something.

Also, a couple of weeks ago I went to The Cookie and played some music whilst some lovely folk (including Adam from Calla and the ever lovely David Wilson Clarke) filmed me. The first video to come from this is below. Enjoy!
