What have we here?

Wishing a good new year to all, hopefully we can get things moving here…so, during 2013 we found out that there’s no hope for the climate, unless by some miraculous stroke we are whisked away by the spirit of Malthus and invent some effects reversing technology, and artificial food generator and distribution system, and eradicate all waste.

In much more superficial news you will have heard of the outputs I had last year.  The demo recording ‘Unableto‘ was given a proper release, on cassette. I toured in the UK with Rachael Dadd and Ichi and had a coupe of collaborative shows at Lexington. A couple of shows I have played here in Seoul too! more to come I’m sure.

Preparations were also made for this coming year.  The first being an album with Juice Vocal Ensemble, recorded in Otley by Phil at Limbo. This will give you some sparse guitar and plenty of singing. Im pretty pleased with what we’ve made. Were hoping to make a few live outings in the second half of the year.

More soon.

Regards, David

On my personal visit back to the UK I ventured into the public eye for two shows.  Leeds and London, as mentioned below. A short summary as far as I can remember is as follows:

(Brudenell Social Club + (2 x Cheese Savoury Sandwiches) + (2 x pint of booze) / Stack of milk crates) + Neil Turpin = Biggest bruise ever on inside leg just below the knees.

((Lexington + sell-out) / babybel cheeses) + Banana + renewed sense of self = Slow-motion rock cliche.

There are still some A2 size posters available. I will update shortly with a way to order some signed ones, if the desire so approaches you.

Keep your eyes peeled for some movements later this year.

ADDENDUM: I may have turned into one of those guys who in no way acknowledges their support act.

Many thanks to Maggie8 for stepping in to open for the Brudenell show. They have been making ‘Hindi Indie’ for a while. My first chance to hear… find them here:

Big thanks to Geese for Lexington. My new favourite band: geesemusic
