Had a good house warming last night for the new house in Manchester…

Just off to Madrid for a few days (until 29th).. so any enquiries just drop me an email!

Fuel in Withington – and Down the Tiny Steps

Sunday, August 14th, 2005

OK. Truely settled in Manchester now… so much so that actually I headed off to Sheffield last night to visit my mate Alice and have a night out there. It’s sooo easy to get there too – just jump on the train, journey through the hills of the peak district for 45 minutes, and you’re there.

Anyways… now I’m back in Manchester. And tonight discovered my first really great venue – Fuel in Withington. A Glaswegian band called Down the Tiny Steps was playing upstairs there. It’s a lovely intimate space, with sofas and tables and lots of cool people. The band did a great little set – highly recommended. Head to Hoodlum Tribe to hear a really mint dj mix of stuff they’re influenced by.

Looking forward to discovering loads of great music venues in Manchester over the coming weeks.

Will keep ya posted 🙂

Manchester

Thursday, August 11th, 2005

The move went really well, Manchester’s great, my powered mixer has fixed itself, and everything’s good.

I’ll be posting updated contact details for Manchester on the site soon.

Moving to Manchester

Sunday, August 7th, 2005

I’m in the process of relocating to Manchester. I’ll have a new landline contact number once I’m up there (from Tuesday 9th Aug)… but until then please use the contact form to get in touch via email.

See you on the other side…

The big move..

Saturday, August 6th, 2005

Just come back from playing a party near Plymouth. It rained. Lots… and we were playing in a marquee. The main casualty was my powered mixer… which now is no longer powered. Ah well! It was good fun and there was a nice bonfire to keep us warm.

I’m writing this from the sea of boxes that is the front room of my flat. Tomorrow I move to Manchester. It’ll be strange to be leaving Totnes and the West Country for good. But we’re already booking dates down here for when I’m back in a couple of weeks… so I have a feeling it will be a nomadic existance, flicking between gigs in Manchester, Exeter, and Plymouth. And maybe some places in between!

North Bridge

Saturday, August 6th, 2005

Really really enjoyed playing at the North Bridge Inn tonight. For anyone who doesn’t know, it’s a little gem of a pub in Exeter, hidden away across the old Iron bridge (website here). It’s so refreshing to have a place which likes original artists. Definitely worth a visit next time you’re in Exeter.

Went straight from Exeter to Somerset, in a car crammed full of stuff. On Sunday, I’m leaving Totnes for good and heading to Manchester. Kindof sad… but exciting to be moving to a big city, with many places to play.

I’m going to miss Totnes and Exeter though. Will be heading back there before too long (next gig, 31st August) to get my fix!

Friday 5th Aug – North Bridge Inn, Exeter

Thursday, August 4th, 2005

Free gig featuring original acoustic material from Tom and Peter. At the North Bridge Inn, Exeter, Friday 5th Aug at 9.00. Hopefully see you there.

Dartington Summer School

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2005

It’s the Dartington International Summer School this summer. Well worth a look, if only for the concerts and events that are taking place up there.
