House of Verse

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


Satan’s Infirmary

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

Blowin’ Up Jitterz & The Haystack

So, there are a few exciting new things in the pipeline…

Firstly: Jitterz.

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 PrimitiveStupid BootsFlip Like WilsonRoyal ArcadeThe Jangles, and The Brandy Thieves!! This will be our Shot at Discovery for The Pogues Irish Whiskey and we can’t wait, we’re nearly out of tickets, so get in touch fast to get yours!

Acid Haystack and The Shattered Villain:

The Haystack are taking a short break from gigging to train the new bassist, Diego Cilantro Jr. and to perfect our show, we will be back in Leicester on Sat 1st April at Pi Bar and in Manchester on Fri 14th April at Deaf Institute supporting Izzie Walsh‘s EP launch!

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



Great Weekend That One Was

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 WilsonAndrea 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…

Get Exited About Jitterz!

So after last week being a bit mixed, I did my poetry set at Find The Right Words at The Western, which was great! Since then been working with Jitterz on something new and exiting coming soon… (yeah, we thought about this, so we’re being all mysterious like that) we also have a gig today at Jumpin’ Jacks, Leicester and tomorrow at The Shed, then I’m playing Oxjam Manchester Takeover with Acid Haystack on Sunday, so I’ll be pretty wiped out by Monday, but I’m looking forward to all this!


Break My Arm and I’m Still A Poet

This past week’s been a strange one, great gigs at The Musician Pub and The Exchange with Jitterz at the weekend, then an awful Monday, but then saw Slaves and Estrons for £2 at The Cookie last night which was great apart from some old man attempting to break my arm, but apart from the bullshit I put up with this week, generally a good one, also I’m looking forward to tonight’s gig:
