London Calling…

Back in London now for 2 AXXONN shows and I have a solo at Cafe Oto Ian often pulls the old “I’m reading the paper and not associated with this guy…” move. I really dig London’s grungy vibe, Kilburn has it covered x10 Yep that’s the line-up The Goodship = Cool Venue & Smashingly BIG […]

What I really love…

What I really love about touring is the ability to play night after night. Fortunately between my solos and the glorious amount of AXXONN shows I’m pretty much playing every night for 7 weeks. After just 4 AXXONN shows in 5 nights the development of our set is really taking shape, I’m pleasantly surprised with […]

Had my first solo gig last night. It went down well, sold some CD’s and the promoter was happy. I’m really looking forward to refining it more throughout the course of this tour.

Is it too early to call?

So I’ve been in the UK now for 36 hours and feel fine, I think I might have avoided jet lag?!! I hope. Through the use of my caffeine addition I’ve been able to stay awake at the right times and asleep when everyone else is. I head to Brighton tomor. in preparation for my […]
