Its true. Big, round yellow thing spotted in sky over Sheffield. Celebrating that I’ll be doing some UK shows, something I don’t do too often. Principally because no-one asks me, of course. I’ll be in York and Brighton with The Silver Darlings; possibly London, Croyden, too – and of course pigging Sheffield.
Having decided to stay out of Sheffield for a bit, ‘take my ball back’ and hope somebody actually noticed to miss me, the Gods Of Local Gigs, cruel masters that they are have given me, well, lots of local gigs… Details of those to follow as they happen! (Slightly before they happen, that might in fact be more useful to you).
The Old Magic (and The Other Side Of The River bonus CD) are about to go off for manufacture, so you’ll be harangued to buy these, sometime soon! Been a long journey of writing, releasing the Eps, re-working and re-writing for the CDs. But who knows, it might even have been worth it.
7JK, myself and Poland’s Job Karma are also halfway through writing the second 7JK album, and its developing nicely. We’ll also possibly have a couple of festivals to play these songs live, soon, too- somewhere in Europe, where the big yellow thing appears more often…
