Thanks for your support! x

Book OUT NOW. Album OUT MONDAY!

Hello folks,

It’s been a busy week in Camp Gareth. Not that I have a camp. Although I am rather camp. As this weirdo goes on to explain. Anyway…I’m rambling.

My book, How NOT to be a rock star, is out now. I’m really proud to have it out there and available. It seems like a lifetime since the idea was planted, into my half cut brain, in a Glasgow bar.

You can order the book by clicking here. If you want a signed copy, just pop a request in the ‘notes’ section and I’ll try and get it sorted for you.

I know that appears arrogant saying ‘if you want a signed copy’, and I do feel a bit of a prat saying it, but there have been a few requests. And I’m nice.

As if that wasn’t enough to be going on with, my second album, A Brand New Battle, is available on Monday, through Eromenas Media.

The album is only available in CD format for now, with a digital release scheduled for late October.

I’ll have a full list of HMV stores and Independent Record Outlets that are stocking the album, across the UK, in the next day or two. I’m just waiting for a final list from the label.

There will also be a direct link for you to buy directly from Eromenas Media, if you can’t get to a record store, or live outside the UK.

We’re playing a release show on the Isle of Wight on October 24th, with a London launch, Manchester launch, and a Glasgow launch, yet to be confirmed for the end of October. As soon as I confirm the dates and venues, I’ll let you know.

I really hope you like the CD. It’s my best work to date, and I’m really happy with how it came out. It was recorded raw and with emotion. I hope that comes across.

Have a great weekend all. x

First Review of A Brand New Battle…

OiOi.

A Brand New Battle has received it’s first review.

The album has been given the once over by Cool Manchester.

Here’s what they thought of my musical offering. 🙂

Review.

The album is available on September 17th. There should be a few more reviews coming in before then.

Also, check out your local BBC Radio Station, and put in a request.

Be safe. x

Album Release.

Hey everyone,

Just got off the phone with the label and it looks like the release date for the album is September 17th.

It will be available for download and on CD at outlets across the UK. It’s just a UK CD release at the moment but you’ll be able to download Worldwide. I’m guessing you’ll be able to buy a hard copy from here or from the label at some point.

I’m just waiting for the documents to arrive so I can go through and sign on the dotted line. Only took me 12 years of being a musician to get noticed eh? 🙂

Sorry if I’m sounding a bit vague but until it’s all signed, sealed, delivered, I’m not divulging too much.

There will be a release party in London on Friday 21st September. I’ll let you know all the details as soon as I have them.

To celebrate being offered a contract, I’m going for a swim.

Festival, Album & Book…

Hello everyone!

I hope you’re all well. Do I sound excited? I am. Pearl Jam are playing the Isle of Wight Festival today. I’ll be there, slightly drunk, dancing on my one good leg.

I played the Festival yesterday and was lucky enough to have been featured on Sky Arts coverage. I got tweets slagging off my wife beater vest and wellies image. It’s a festival, you’re meant to look like a dick. Aren’t you?

I’m playing the Champagne Zebra Lounge tomorrow afternoon at 4. Then I’ll have to juggle between Bruce Springsteen and England. As much as I love the boss…England will win. 🙂

Yesterday, I met a fella off ‘The Voice’ too. I didn’t know who he was, but he deserved a kiss.

I signed off on the proofs for my book on Thursday. Now they’re off to India to be printed. Gulp!!! I’m very excited. ‘How NOT to be a rockstar’ will be out soon. That will make me a published author. WOW!

I also got the mastered copy of the album. It sounds massive! I’m so happy with it. A Brand New Battle will be available very soon. I hope you like it!!!

Right, I’m off to eat, drink, and be muddy.

Be safe. xxx

Old school tunes…

Hey all,

My mate Tim sent me some old tunes he had on his computer.

The first one is old bedroom recording of a song called ‘A violent mind’. It was from when we were in a band called Helen Keller.

It’s very rough, very old, and we were very young! But have a listen if you’re bored.

Helen Keller – A Violent Mind.

Here is another tune. A remix by dekalog of an acoustic song called ‘Always said too much’. The track was on the Kody album, ‘Polaroids from Alison’.

Kody – Always Said Too Much (Dekalog remix)

Much love. x

Next weeks recording and Isle of Wight shows…

Oi.

Next week I am down in Surrey to record a couple of acoustic tracks. It’s part of a friends project, so I’ll get to try some new stuff out.

Obviously I’ve just finished the album so it seems like poor timing for a spot of free recording. I would say that’s ‘Ironic’ but thanks to Alanis Morrisette, we all know it’s not ironic at all.

I’m going to record a couple of acoustic tracks, ‘This Ones Love’ & ‘Nothing lasts forever’. I’ll use them as B sides for the next two singles. Whatever they may be!

I’m back on the Isle of Wight next week for a couple of shows. When I left last week, I didn’t get to say a lot of good byes. Hopefully we’ll be able to have a few jars at the shows next week.

Monday 21st – Quay Arts Centre, Newport – 8pm.

Thursday 24th – Wight Rock Bar, Ryde – 9:30pm.

Tell your friends! Then kiss them. With tongues. While naked. Covered in peanut butter.

I have a head ache. x
