Here’s a video I made for But They Don’t Even Sell Lo-Fi Parasols In Top Shop a few weeks ago. It’s a very simple, basic thing and features me, as well as some lovely people from Tigercats and Fever Dream.
The spinning footage was shot at the Deerhunter ATP in the summer. The shots of Fever Dream was shot in Crystal Palace in February. It was actually meant to be used in their video, but in the end that never happened.
Then there’s some Gameboy camera footage in there, as well as some captured LSDJ video. It might even be the right track and everything. I think so.
My next two shows! Hastings on 11th Oct and Deptford on 14th Oct! Yeah!
My next two gigs. Proud Gallery Camden on 29th August and teh Vagina Monolodge Garden Party in Birmingham on 31st August!
Someone filmed me playing a song (Twiddle from the new album) at the Buffalo Bar the other day. One day I’ll play guitar without looking completely terrified.
My record is out now! You can get it from itunes, amazon, Spotify, emusic and all those places, but I shouldn’t have to tell you that if you really want to support independent music, bands and labels, you should shop as close to the source as possible.
You can buy both physical copies (which come with a direct digital download) and downloads (in your choice of format) straight from the Fika Records shop.
Sorry, the new bandcamp players are rubbish in this particular tumblr theme. That is not how it’s supposed to look. scroll over the image and you can listen anyway….kind of. If it doesn’t work, just go to the Fika website.
My record now has proper printed inserts and stuff. Yup.
My next three shows! Northampton on Friday, London on Sunday and Brighton on 5th August! Yeah!
So, the first “single” off my album is available NOW! I say “single” cause it’s not really a single, now is it? It’s a free/name-your-price download…but it comes with one unreleased extra song!
Hope you like it. Stay put for accompanying video and stuff later this week.
So, I played at Empty Shop in Durham on Friday, along with the brilliant Olive Anne and Ghost Mice. Hadn’t played in a long time, so I was quite nervous…but, I think it went alright in the end. There was no PA, so I plugged both Game Boy and guitar into the amp. Took a while to get levels ok-ish, but I think it worked in the end…I really enjoyed the freedom that came with not having to sing into a microphone.
Met loads of lovely people and had a generally ace time.

Spending my train journey handwriting the inner sleeve notes for the first twelve copies of my record. Will be available in Durham this evening. One done, eleven to go…
