I’ve been working this uni thing, attempting to be a proper adult (which I’ve lost all hope of ever being). However, I have just about had time to continue life in the real world too. Firstly, Acid Haysatck…
We have been in hiding during winter, but now we’re back! With new shows, new plans, and the upcoming EP! Lullabies For Broken Minds, coming soon…
See us live with our outlaws in-law, Leicester’s finest gypsy punks, the legendary BRANDY THIEVES at The Old Abbey Taphouse – 30/03:
Now then… Jitterz:
We’ve been playing recently in Leics, Manc, and Nottz. They’ve all been thoroughly lovely gigs and we had the best timezzz! Some more plans unfolding soon, and a couple more Leics datez lined up over Easter, including…
Kermes Album Release Alldayer! The Y Theatre – 14/04
That’s all for now folkz,
Love from Sherpa
All the things have happened, new year, uni, Manchester, Haystack EP recorded, new musical projects are in development and hopefully coming soon…
In the meantime, I’ve been listening to some cool things, like The Cosmics (who Jitterz had the pleasure of supporting last week), Easy Life, who are new and fanccyyy, also Princess Nokia, Protoje, SweetBellEchoBaby, Harry Stafford and so many more.
Also, I didn’t know spotify had podcasts, did you know this?? I found The Guilty Feminist podcast a couple days ago, and its the best way to spend 99% of ur time. George Orwell books are amazing, though scary how real they are, as is new Black Mirror, and there’s loads of great TV stuff.
Anyway, promotion, errrr… Jitterz are playing Firebug on Sat 24/02 check it here.
I got a solo gig in Manchester coming – Thu 22/02 Sam’s Chop House.
and here’s me in a cellar:
GET A REAL JOB – The debut 4-track EP by Jitterz is out now!

Get a Real Job – Available on Bandcamp now
Since the last post, I’ve been busy…
I have written a new soul song, plus a couple new songs with Jitterz, we’ve played a couple times (Manchester was amazing), and we’re off to Nottingham, Sheffield, Rugby, and Birmingham next!
Also, Jose has made some killer artwork for our EP, which will be out soon enough, we promise.
My next solo gig is at the Music Cafe with House of Verse – Sat 15th July, hopefully I’ll have some more words to say at you by then! x
Hello there fine people, been a little while, so I had a little time to write a little rhyme:
I wrote and recorded my first solo song, Satan’s Infirmary, also been writing with Acid Haystack and Jitterz, plus Dead Question‘s album is coming on in the mixing process.
So coming up is Jitterz at The Musician on Sat 20th May, plus our EP is coming soon, we’re nearly there with the sound we’re after, its gonna be awesome! so keep eyes peeled…
Also shout out to Andy Darbyshire for the photo
So, there are a few exciting new things in the pipeline…
Since the Kickstarter, we’ve been getting all exited about creating merch and should be starting on that any day now! We also printed a load of birthday gig posters and flyers and have been busy putting them up around Leicester, so look out for them…
We’re playing at The o2 Academy Leicester on Tuesday with Go Primitive, Stupid Boots, Flip Like Wilson, Royal Arcade, The Jangles, and The Brandy Thieves!!

Keep your eyes peeled, diced and freshly sautéed for more soon…

Presenting: Jitterz – The Pogues Irish Whiskey
Since the last post, I’ve been doing some stuff, Jitterz‘ EP Kickstarter campaign has gone so well! We made our target within the first week and now stand at over £800.
We also played some pretty cool gigs at The Soundhouse, The Musician, and The Cookie. those last couple both were this week, and tonight, I’ve got both my 4th and 5th gigs of the week with Dead Question and Jitterz at The Soundhouse! I’m gonna be so tired after this I might go into hibernation for a while.
Later this month, I have a couple gigs in Nottingham with Jitterz, plus we’ll be recording our EP (Exciting stuff!!), and getting all our rewards together for the lovely people who contribute to our campaign before it ends, also some Haystack coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled…
I’ve been away a while, but I’m back!
We in Jitterz are recording our debut EP next month, but we need your help! We just launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund it an some snazzy merch too!
So we’d really love if you could donate to our campaign, or if not, just share it around…
Spread the love like a filthy rudderless hippie!
That was a really good weekend as they go, Jitterz got played on BBC Radio Leicester!!! and last night, I played with Acid Haystack Acoustic at The Shed with Flip Like Wilson, Andrea Kenny and Mia and The Moon for their Undefeated single launch, which was amazing! I’m gonna get my head down for a bit now, work on new Jitterz material, finish the Dead Question album, and work on all the things…
