Hopefully if you’ve liked the Captain Wilberforce Facebook page (course you have!) you’ll have seen that we’re playing the world famous Cavern Club in Liverpool tomorrow evening (Monday 23rd May). We’re actually playing 2 gigs tomorrow evening – the first at about 6:30pm and the second about 9pm across the road at the Cavern Pub. As the gigs are part of the annual IPO festival, entrance is free and there are bands on from about 5pm at both venues til late.
Hope some of you can make it along – if you do you’ll hear the première performance of a new song that’s going to be on the upcoming album – Stickleback Toffee.
As always, if you do make it along, come up and say hi after the gigs!
…to Max, our new bass player. Or Massimiliano if we’re being precise – we had to import him all the way from Italy!
So along with me, and completing our live line-up is the irrepressible Carl, who’s been with me since before recording “Everyone Loves a Villain” and Rob who’s on his second stint with me on guitar.
You’ll get your first chance to see us at the Cavern on May 23rd as part of the International Pop Overthrow festival – we’ll be playing twice that evening, so you’ll get to hear some unreleased songs and a couple of older songs I’m not sure we’ve ever played live before. And it’s free entry!
More info as it happens.
Gone, but musically immortal…
So, 2016 and still no teleportation machines. Shame!
Thanks to everyone who downloaded my last EP – we’re working on recording 5 more songs that, along with the last 2 EPs, will be given a full release on CD this year.
What’s more exciting is that there’s a good possibility that the CD will actually be released on a US label; let’s not count our chickens though, eh?
Have a great new year!
You can download the songs for free or contribute any amount, which all goes towards helping me record new songs!
Please, please and pretty please spread the word; share / comment / like on Facebook, Twitter, or in conversation at work / over the garden fence / to random strangers in the street.
Oh, and see the previous post for links to videos to all four songs.
The new Ep – The Late Captain Wilberforce is out in a couple of weeks. Here are the videos. Enjoy!
The new EP is imminent – released on November 9th in fact. To prove this you can watch the video for the lead song “Couples” on you tube this very instant. Please comment, tweet, like and share; it really makes a difference!
You’ll be able to hear / see the videos for the other 3 songs as they’re posted over the next week (unless you’re one of the lucky few on the mailing list who have got early access.)
Oh and let me know what you think on my Facebook page.
