Yep it is September, I can feel it in my bones, the seasons are changing, the leaves are changing colours, and the festivals are ending. It’s been a hell of a summer.
Thanks so much to all the people who have made an effort to come see me play, brought CDs/T-shirts and sang along… I have to be careful here it doesn’t turn into an oscar speech.
I have been really slack when it’s come to updating this site, the wonderful Andy Luckman at Bang Graphics (he can make a website like this for you too) has put a lot of effort into making this happen. I do have more gigs booked than is on here. So after the Something Else In the Dean, I will let you know my full plans for the winter.
I get asked this a lot at festivals… What do you do in the winter?
Most of the time I want to say that, I put myself in a box full of straw, loads of food, and sleep till march. Most of the time that’s what I want to be doing. I go play indoors…
The Just Flicked The V Sign Tour is all going full steam ahead.
Here are the links for tickets:
5th November – The Railway Hotel – Southend On Sea – With Chuck SJ Hay and Chris Davison
12th November – Union Bar – Hastings – With Hobo Jones and The Junkyard Dogs
19th November – Fiddler’s Elbow – Camden – With Brain Stone and Jake Martin
26th November – Grain Barge – Bristol – With Skeg and Jake Martin
3rd December – Yew Tree Inn – Just outside Derby – With Brad Dear and the Pirate & the Fox
As I said more dates are being added and I will let you know these next week. I am currently typing this for the second time, as the computer did something weird and Birdy is eating her breakfast, and we really need to get all our chores done so that we can go and see the Forest Of Dean.
This has to be the most scary thing I have done with regards to having a tour, I have booked the venues, paid deposits and promised to pay Support acts and sound Engineers, saying that a ¼ of all the tickets have already gone and still over a month away till the tour starts.
I have a bunch of flyers and posters if you know anyone who would be able to hand them out for me that would be amazing, please get in touch.
Couple of other things, the t-shirts for the tour are up on Mercht , The NESW one finishes today
And the Just Flicked the V Sign One, Ends Tomorrow
If you want one, order on there, and they will make and post them out to you.
I’d like to finish my blog with a song. Here is me (below) playing Pirate Captain on the Crispy Disco at Equinox. Be careful though this might make you cry.
Doozer McDooze and Birdy Rose
