I have been pondering the small mystery of why I come up in the top search results when googling ‘london schools of design’ – http://www.google.co.uk/search?&q=london+schools+of+design
Anyways, music, yes, I have a show in Camden next Thursday at Iktoms. It will be my tenth time playing for Kev, a truly enlightened promoter, who provides sweets, lego and colouring-in pencils and paper as well as consistently booking great new music.
The evening is unamplified and I will be practising for the second time the noble art of singing whilst playing the double bass with Iain on guitar to fill in the gaps

…I have just started playing with an amazing violinist called Geri who is going to be doing her first gig with me at the Wired Festival in Kings Cross on Saturday 27th. Kinzli will also be joining me on backing vocals and the rest of the bill looks awesome including Fiona Bevan, Show Without Punch, Lail Arad and many more of my favourite artists.

…and have just booked the Arcola Theatre in Dalston for a Sunday early evening show on 2nd November – please pencil in the diary if you can – I think this will be a full kitchen sink show with guitar, banjo, tabla, double bass, violin, backing vocals and cake.
