So. Three book gigs down with lots to go.. a few festivals and designated book gigs to get stuck into before the Dirt and I head back to Japan. (7 week trip .. tour and time out..)
So far. Local launch at donkeystone brewery and Manchester rose and monkey went brilliant. I’ve also added The Grove in Huddersfield to ace places to perform. They now have a great spoken word night called ink spill up and running so that’s worth a check out!
For me September will be a busy month. Several gigs for the book and a dirt gig at float along festival in Sheffield for strange days. Chuffed to be sharing a stage with Steve lamacq there too..
The Dirt have laid all tracks down and we return to meet the producer this week to tweak the tracks ready for release next year. We are working with a great artist for the cover and I’ll ve collaborating with Steve reilly at fluid prepress again on the digital front..
