Amazing Beats

Willowwacks has been made track of the week on the Amazing Beats show, home to some of the best emerging and established dance music around. With all kinds of genres covered, it is a mighty fine listen and goes out live every Friday evening from 7pm on Amazing Radio.

Raise the Roof festival

I’m really looking forward to playing this event for the Nottingham based homeless charity Framework. To celebrate 10 years of working with the homeless and to raise awareness and much needed funds (although admission is free), Framework are putting on a weekend of contemporary live and electronic music at Nottingham Contemporary art gallery on the 8th-9th October. The line up looks great with so many exciting artists to check out. I’m playing on the Saturday.


Kino 10,  promoters of amazing short film/animation nights, will be curating two days of inspiring films and musical oddities as part of Birmingham’s Artsfest, on September 10th-11th. On the Sunday, my  video for Hippocampus is being screened in a section on Birmingham music videos at The Crescent Theatre from 5pm.

Free gig!

I’m playing  at the Hare and Hounds in Kingsheath next Saturday, 27th August. It’s an enticing line up with Juneau Brothers, purveyors of wonky pop songs from homemade MIDI gizmos headlining. Papa November, Glatze and Flumpophone and Posh One are also on the bill.

Word salad

The great A Pocket Full of Seeds,  has dropped the conventional format of blog post for  a piece more akin to freestyle poetry on their expression of  Hippocampus here. As well as unintentionally spearheading this new form of review, (how can this NOT catch on???) they may have also just invented the genre of ‘Environmonica.’ I’ll buy it.

Small but perfectly formed…

Like a teddy bear claw machine picking out strange, endearing and sometimes dumb animals,  A New Band A Day  heroically trawls the net to present to you an undiscovered band/artist for each new day this blue and green spinning fluke of a thing we’re living on brings.  On Thursday, they grabbed me and I’m reviewed here. Strangely, the day I’m featured on is also my birthday. Got to be better than socks.
