So, this Thursday we’re playing acoustically at Hirst’s Yard, Leeds. It’s FREE in and we’re on at 8:30pm before Brothers Grimm take to the stage at 9:20pm. We’ll be playing new songs, like The King of Indecision (above) and a few golden oldies. Should be fun ;o)
We’ve been invited to support our friends The Brothers Grimm on Thursday 17th July at Hirst’s Yard, Leeds. It’ll be an acoustic set and we’ll be playing a mix of older songs and tunes from the upcoming EPs / album. I assume we’ll be on around 8pm, and I’m not sure of the entrance fee – details to follow!
Nice article (link below) that pretty much sums up my thoughts on being an underground artist. Has definitely given me food for thought about how I might release all my future songs. Just getting my head round the details, but change is a coming.
Just a quick reminder about the International Pop Overthrow festival in Liverpool on Wednesday evening. I’m going to be doing a couple of acoustic sets; the first at the Cavern Pub at 6:45pm and the second at the Cavern Club at 8:45pm. Looking forward to seeing lots of great bands too including The Housekeeping Society from Leeds.
Hopefully should be playing two different sets, including a specially chosen cover or two and material from the upcoming new EP / Album.
The full week’s schedule for IPO (starting tonight) is at http://internationalpopoverthrow.com/schedules/ipo-2014-schedules/liverpool-2014/
It’s taken a while, but I’ve finally got around to creating a Captain Wilberforce YouTube channel which has lyric videos for all the songs from Ghost Written Confessions and Everyone Loves a Villain.
I should have the Mindfilming songs up before the end of the week too.
You can find it here.
After a year off in 2013 I’m going to be playing the International Pop Overthrow Festival again in a few weeks.
For those of you who don’t know of it, it’s a music festival at the Cavern Club in Liverpool and hordes of Beatles / Who / Costello / XTC influenced bands travel from across Europe to play.
This year I’m doing two acoustic sets on Wed 14th May – hopefully both different and both spanning my whole back catalogue and some as yet unreleased tunes. I’m even planning a couple of venue related covers…
So if you’re in the area, come along and introduce yourself!
Slowly but surely we’re getting the new songs recorded, hampered only by my insistence on changing everything at the last minute, including but not limited to; lyrics, timing, instrumentation and entire structure. However the results we’re getting are pretty good, all modesty aside ;o)
I’m getting to grips with Presonus Studio One - the free edition is surprisingly great and I’m now a convert to laptop recording and wishing I’d done so years ago.
The pan is to release 3 eps to download asap, then an album (CD and perhaps even Vinyl if there’s any demand) made up of the EPs and 4 extra bonus tracks later in the year. There again given my current indecisiveness, this could all change!
