Thats it.. year over for performance activity. 2022 has been a belter for both Leon solo and the Dirt. Ta to all who came to gigs, put stuff on, bought merch and gave ace reviews.
From book launch and autumn gigs to festivals for leon, highlight has to be shiine solo set, conducting remembrance sunday, and opening verse for EMF. But last gig at punk in drublic comes a close second at salford lads club. As does bearded theory in gails tea tent!!
Mancunia tv has been a great experience hosting poets corner and meeting some top folk. Ive had some great guests that continue into 2023..
The book “dont believe the Hype” is ticking along nicely as is ” talking myself out of trouble” now im reaching new audiences!!.. oh and the kids pocket book is doing ok too. Ta to all who gave got one!
Next year there are some juicy slots booked that will start getting announced soon.
As for the Dirt, i am loving it. The record is due in April. Vinyl and CD. The singles on bandcamp are getting great reviews, so we are well chuffed. And the live sets have been mega. We have played some ace cities -Manchester Newcastle Sheffield Leeds Liverpool London Nottingham and some other great independent venues – Snug and salty dog take a bow!.. ta to all promoters who took a chance in our first year. I hope we paid you back in noise reverb energy and passion..
Next year we have a string of gigs either booked confirmed or talked about. Looking forward to new places and also going back to dome faves!!.. important one is 14.04.23 in Manchester with Happy Daze its the album launch. So spread the word and save the date!!
