We’re back after seven gigs in seven nights (and a silly amount of driving). Had an absolute blast playing with John Law, James Manwairing and Ashley John Long. Can’t wait for the next tour!

Got some fun gigs coming up with Ferris/Lee/Weir in November:

Sunday 12th November: Soho Cafe, Christchurch, 1.30pm Info

Friday 17th November: The Edge, Digbeth, Birmingham, 7.00pm Info

The second date is a funk/poetry crossover night which should be super fun (I also have no idea what to expect)!
