New Album featured on ‘Sparkle On’ (Sparklehorse fan website)

Very honoured to be on the blog feature of this week (Sparklehorse Fan Website). It has a mini feature of the new album track ‘A supernatural Carnival of Demons’ which features Paul Mill on a borrowed junior drum kit (which I stupidly dropped off at the wrong garage) and an odd homemade cello from memory, a toy megaphone, and an outro solo by Ian Hinton-Smith that goes slightly mental. Thanks! 🙂 


Read the first six album reviews of ‘The difficulties of…’ HERE!

The first few reviews for our new album have started coming through. I have to say thanks for such amazing feedback, I know the music can take some time to absorb/understand/digest so even more pleased that people have really taken time out of their lives to give it such thought. There is time for a bad one yet!

Cloudspotting Festival 2013 confirmed!!!

JP and the Big Sad Face of Infinity are very excited to have been asked to play at this years Cloudspotting Festival in the beautiful Ribble Valley (near my 1970’s stylee heavyweight caravan! J). We will be sharing the line-up with King Creosote and the Earlies, Clinic and Wave Pictures amongst others- albeit w-a-y down the bill – it’s a really small festival with a ridiculously good line-up so it really is an honour to be asked to play at this one.

Link to the festival site – I have heard nothing but praise for this little festival and cheap as chips too so everyone should get a ticket fast…
