Unfortunately the show at the Sail loft in Southwold on the 15th has been moved to the 29th June. Sorry for any inconviniance this may cause.
The year has started well and Ive already enjoyed short tours along the south coast and out to the west country. New music is also on the horizon.
A track that was finished at the end of last year has been joined by another which I’m lucky enough to have Dana Colley from “MORPHINE” playing some incredible saxophone.
These tracks will be put up on CD BABY & ITUNES in the near future. Im not sure wether to add some more tracks to make a little mini EP for live shows. We shall see how it all goes.
Here is a beautiful picture of the Ash trees at Figsbury Ring just outside Salisbury. Me and the Dawgs love to visit here when we are playing a show in the city!
As a busy year starts to wind down its nice to look back on its highlights.
“#Rocker” Is one of those 3 chord Rock N Roll no brainer tracks that you play at the end of the night when everyone is going crazy and you don’t have to worry wether or not its perfect. In fact it shouldn’t!
Dana was gracious enough to record for me so many tracks to play with, I wasn’t sure where to start. Without a doubt its one of the more “off the Hook” tracks Ive recorded. It reminds me of when the Smouldering Sons were recording everything live for the EP Hillbilly from Hell on the very first studio session. The track is all finished and will be released very shortly.
Dana as many will know was part of that ground breaking band Morphine! 2 string Slide Bass, Baritone Sax & Drums. One of my very favourite bands.
“JOURNEY OF DREAMS” That is the name of the new multi award winning Rockumentary by Mark Schuman all about this fantastic band. Do yourselves a favour and open up a New Musical World for yourself. You won’t regret it.
As some of you may know, I help run a show called the Rock N Roll Kabaret. The house band for the Kabaret are the Rock N Roll Pirates. The Pirates fronted by my good friend Cherry Simpson were asked to play Chiddfest 3 by organiser Mark Prentice last year whilst I was playing a solo show at Chiddfest 2. Myself & Cherry were just a week ago resigned to the fact that we would have to cancel the show due to band member or two illness! So a big thank you goes out to Ian Whitewood and Magdy Abdel Rahim (Pirate M) and Alex Gilmore for stepping in for a rehearsal 3 days before the show to become Rock N Roll Pirates! Many thanks to the Wonderful crowd who made the festival a fabulous event. These boutique festivals remind me of some of the old Tree fairs I used to go to as a kid. not too big but big enough to have some decent named acts with emerging talent making up the numbers. BTW if you want a “F##K Em All” T shirt just drop me an email. available by paypal for £15.
As you may all know I moonlight as a Rock N Roll Pirate & playing Bass at the Rock N Roll Kabaret! The best & most unique Kabaret in the World! We take no prisoners and have a loud & proud message to all the Haters, racists, assholes and un Rock N Roll people out there. Its “Fuck Em All” Wear your T shirt with pride and spread the word!
Remember Rock N Roll is not a sound of music, Its a state of Mind!
Postage is included in the price
Ok this is a “live” recording of my band the Smouldering Sons. In the middle there is the quiet bridge where some quirky guitar is played. This guitar part was a bit tongue in cheek as we lifted part of the theme from an old British TV series from the 80’s. Our arrangement is a little different but we thought it would be a bit of fun to see if anyone ever noticed. No one ever has and no one has given me the answer. You’re welcome to try your luck. Free copy of the new album and this track to the person who can tell me.
Update 6th June. Well done to John McColm. CD & a Tagine is yours anytime when you are passing through sunny Suffolk. It was…. The Bergerac theme!!!!!! Have a listen. We changed it from Reggae to Americana! (o:
