Then after an hour at home out to see Sea Monster Eyes (who get better every time I see them) at the Tap And Tumbler (great, great venue) supported by the best saw player I’ve ever seen and the brilliant and slightly threatening John Marriott


Tenuous self promotion warning – here’s my song Brother Bull, with backing vocals from Si and Phil from Sea Monster Eyes and mastered by the insanely gifted John Paul Braddock who did the Injured Birds album.
