It's three weeks until I go and record 8/40: ALL THE RAGE. I'm very happy with the way it's coming along - it's going to ruffle some feathers, as it should as my post-Brexit album.
I'm not aiming low with this one, in fact, I think I might be aiming as high as I possibly could.
Without giving too much away - I strongly stress that you pre-order it (£3 or Pay What You Like) - as it may not be available much long after it's release date of November 5th.

Then, I'm VERY EXCITED to have been the headbooker and coffee-maker at Grant Sharkey's Tour Booking Corps and sorted out this 36+ date tour. I'm going to try and get it to 40 dates before setting off - fingers crossed (or get in touch).
Old places, new faces, new places, old faces - it's a joy to go around in the Smart Car, smelling incredible, to play these songs that plop out of my head. This time I'm trying to reach further down in to the SW. We've added North Wales and Hartlepool to the list - not to mention - a few very, very cool house shows in there as well.
Of note, I turn 39 on November 23rd (Birmingham, Tower of Song) and I'm playing support to DODGY at the Talking Heads on the 26th Nov. I'm not saying you should definitely come out to that show because it's my birthday.
Here's the tour:
After that - there's a weekend off before Christmas bellies and Dr. Who.
THANKS to everyone that came out and supported the Toupé tour back at the end of August. We had a pure blast of fun (I did lose my voice for the last gig - Icelandic Nose Singing was all I could manage - sorry) - there will be more...and probably more after that. Details to come.
