I don't get out much but when I do it's for live gigs.

This year's End of the Road promses The Pixies and Andy Shauf as well as a whole bunch of other musicians but these alone will see me going.

Hoping to make it to Rozi Plain in Totnes in March and Tony Dekker in Exeter.


Storms here


Snooker tomorrow

New Califone album just landed...Unlike me to be lost for words.. but where to find them? all i can say is please listen...moments like this don't come too often.

I had similar feelings when I stood in front of The Jewish Bride at the Rembrandt exhibition, when I first read John Donne, when I first heard Gavin Bryars and also Eno/Byrne's My Life in the Bush of Ghosts...something inexplicably changes by its being in the world.

Echo Mine due out in February. Check out new single Romans on youtube..it's a delicate peach.


Pixies headlining at EOTR this year.


Sun shining over heavy frost here.


Favourite recent re read - The Abundance of Less by Andy Couturier.


Just finished library book The Bride of Newgate by John Dickson Carr - that man could write a romp and no mistake.


Bamboozled by the world.. gently floating down a sidestream..increasingly not getting it...maybe the Pythons were right.. it is all about having a good read and doing a spot of flower arranging.


feeling older and slower here ..could just be Winter .. but finding that these are not necessarily negatives.

Well, apparently so cos 2019 was the year I discovered Richard Buckner and the late Jason Molina.. I'm ashamed to admit it but thrilled to have found them. Blue Factory Flame just haunts me.

Just back from EOTR.. William Tyler in the rain..LOW on shattering overdrive.. Sandro Perri broke me with In another Life..Mary Lattimore to the moon and back. Mark Mulcahy in full caramel flow. Lisa O'Neill,how we need her right now and the utterly angelic Angelo de Augustine who stole the whole show.

We are so privileged to see these people.
