Confirmed as V Dub Festival Thursday Headline Act…

Hey folks,

I have been confirmed as the headline act on the Thursday of V Dub Fest on the Isle of Wight.

The festival is on August 15th to 19th and features artists such as The Cuban Brothers & The Neville Staple Band.

I’ll be headlining on Thursday the 15th.

This summer is starting to look good! x

2013.

Hey all,

Hope you all had a wicked holiday period, and the boredom of ‘real life’ hasn’t got you all too down.

My 2013 has, up until today, consisted of nothing more than detoxing and hitting the gym. It’s very easy in this line of ‘work’ to fall into a junk food and booze lifestyle. I’m starting the year by kicking both of them to the kerb. No booze for 8 days, and no unhealthy food either.

I’d like to say I feel better for it, but insomnia, and toothache have put pay to any feelings of healthiness I may have expected.

Anyway, today was the first music related thing I did. I had to travel to Manchester to meet a music journalist and lay myself bare. I always worry about interviews, as often, the piece has already been written prior to meeting. They then fit the words around their preconception. Sometimes good, sometimes bad.

This chap seemed like a very nice bloke, so my weariness seemed unfounded. But, when you’ve been burned and all that! The amount of times I’ve picked up papers, or looked at online fanzines and thought, I never fucking said that!!!

Like I said though, nice bloke this time. Phew!

I have a really busy year, with plenty of tours and live appearances. We’re just waiting for a lot of confirmations, and the gig page will fill up accordingly.

Bizarrely, I’m also playing a large supporting role in a film, due to be shot this year. In fact, the America based part of the film may even be being filmed already. I’m not sure. I’m an ‘orrible English bastard in it anyway. Looking forward to breaking my acting teeth.

Hope you’re all well. x

Happy New Year.

Hey everyone,

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas. Not because of it’s religious connotations, but because it’s just nice to be friendly to each other.

It’s sad we need a specific day to be ‘merry’, but I hope you all enjoyed it none the less.

Tonight is New Years Eve, and while I don’t buy in to the night as much as I used to, it is a chance for rebirth.

My rebirth is coming in the form of a healthier mind, and a healthier body. Hence why, on Tonights agenda, are home made burgers, and a barrel of booze. One last night of debauchery before the resolution comes into play.

I wish you all a fabulous night, and an awesome New Year. After all, you’re all in control of your own destiny, and only YOU can make the New Year happy, for yourself and for others.

Do whatever you desire, as long as it’s not at the expense of others, and you’ll be on the right track.

I’ll be touring across the globe next year, so hopefully I’ll bump into you, and we’ll knock the froth off a few.

As a good will gesture, here is a picture of a moose smiling.
