Towards The First


For the attention of Cork, Clonakilty, Galway and Dublin folk:
My new band with Marc Aubele - Tenro - will be playing next week, alongside Laura Sheeran (who took this fantastic photo of us... these shows will also see the debut of new material from her) and Italy's (r) (Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo of Blind Cave Salamander + Larsen and Daniele Pagliero).
The material that I have created with Marc for Tenro is, I feel, truly some of the very best that I have been involved in producing. It's a kind of music I've dreamt of making for a long time, and has even exceeded the expectations of my imagination. There's been a wealth of outstanding material recorded and much of it tantalisingly close to completion. We could easily fill a couple of standard-length albums with the best of what we have already and still have more. Most of all I'm really looking forward to other people getting to hear it. Some tracks are upbeat and danceable, some soothing and narcotic, some challenging, some sinister, some funny, some harrowing, but all vibrant and intense.
The dates follow. Dublin people please note that the Dublin show is strictly limited to thirty tickets only, and is effectively an invite only event, so if you want to attend the Dublin gig you will need to inquire at the email address below as soon as possible.

1 May - Cork Community Print Shop - CORK (byob)
2 May - FEAST @ Roisin Dubh - GALWAY

RSG

I will be joining Patrick Kelleher on stage for a couple of songs this Saturday night (9:30 to be precise) in Dublin's Pantibar (the gay bar owned by the truly inspiring and remarkably eloquent gay rights activist and drag queen Panti), a fundraiser event for the Yes Equality campaign (for civil marriage equality for same-sex couples in Ireland) and for the Outhouse LGBT community resource centre. I have also submitted a solo track of my own to the compilation which will be released at the event, also a fundraiser for the same causes.

"Alright, well here's a class act here..."

Delighted to make public a new project I've working on with Marc Aubele of Nanu Nanu, Pigg, and Bellx1. Recording in near total darkness during all-night sessions over the last winter has resulted in a load of material, of which this track is the first made available to hear. I'm immensely proud of this track and I feel that it is one the single best pieces of music that I've been involved in the creation of (and I feel similarly about a lot of the other material too).

Catscars - Totally live

From the last gig I played at the much-missed Joinery last year, this - to my ears - is one of those rare things; a live recording which actually captures to some extent the energy of the performance. Catscars live in this instance was, as it has been for the last three years, the songs of Robyn Bromfield aided + abetted by Patrick Kelleher on drums and dystopian motorik and myself on electronics and energized enthusiasm.
