1. Here’s a video of us playing in Southampton yesterday. This is my cliche protest song about imagining all my crusty friends making slingshots and using them to overthrow the state. It massively oversimplifies revolution. It was vaguely inspired by my favorite books ever (on par with Philip Pullman’s Dark Materials Trilogy I reckon…) The Borrible Trilogy. You should totally go read them books: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Borrible_Trilogy

     
     

  2. Back in the UK and probably sticking around for a while… so I was thinking I’d try and organise some sort of tour again… If anyone wants to tour with me/can help me out with shows/wants me to play in their kitchen or whatever let me know. Spread the word.
    Here’s that album I released a couple months back:

  3. Here’s my new recordings. As the title suggests this album is a collection of songs about love, rage and confusion. Everything was recorded with my homemade microphone except the bass which was DI’d. I’m off travelin’ so physical copies are currently unavailable. Feel free to burn your own though if you need to crank this shit out in your car or whatever. If you can throw us some cash for the download it’d be much appreciated and help with the travelin’.

     

  4. Almost finished…

    All the main parts for the album are down. Just need to do a few bits and bobs here and there… Need to hurry up and think of an album name…

     

  5. Might call my album ‘Love & Rage & Confusion’ because that’s essentially what the songs are about. Or is that just a terrible album name?

     

  6. This probably isn’t completely finished but just wanted to share it because it’s the first time I’ve actually kinda liked the sound of one of my recordings. First time I’ve got the banjo sounding good and everything’s recorded with my homemade mic.

     
     
  7. Busking in Nijmegen with a whole loada friends. Band members of; Rail Yard Ghosts, Mama’s Broke, Feral Booty, Bambari, Trikosis… probably more…

     
     

  8. travelling, recording…

    Been travelling about for a while with my new friends Rail Yard Ghosts, Feral Booty, Mama’s Broke and Belligerence but had to come back to the UK last week for a few things. Even though I hate being stagnant I’ve decided to stick around a little while longer to try and finish recording my album which has been sitting around for a while…

    One. It’s a stick and poke that says DIY. My lovely friend Sara did it whilst I was watching Adventure Time.

     

  10. Have I got everything packed for setting out on more adventures tomorrow?

    thanks, I only started playing banjo recently, been trying to practice it some more.

    I wrote this song on guitar but it’s the first song of mine I’ve transposed onto banjo. Kinda sloppy and cheesy as hell. Basically I listened to far too much Mountain Goats and ended up writing a cheesy love song.
