There are a couple of copies of our album ‘The difficulties of…’ still left at Piccadilly Records in Manchester (picture below with the hefty review on the front). There are only about 30-odd left to sell in existence now so if anyone would like to buy it you can order the CD here http://johnnypowell.bandcamp.com/
or go to Piccadilly Records of course which is highly recommended 🙂
Hey you lot! OK, recently music has been asked to go to the back of the life priority queue, but, I have to say I am very much looking forward to the next two support gigs with Withered Hand and the Lovely Eggs in Manchester (Dulcimer Bar) and Halifax (Arden Road Social Club) respectively.
Saturday October 12th supporting Withered hand at Dulcimer Bar, Manchester
A great Withered Hand vid/track here: http://youtu.be/MnPc1-ClfE4
Friday November 8th supporting Lovely Eggs at Arden Road Social Club, Halifax

Come and say hello, watch, or just drink.
Due to a few reasons, (mainly music slipping down my priority list in favour of focussing on family and peace of mind – and training the mind!) I have quite happily not done many gigs recently.
However, this next gig by Doghouse promotions in Halifax seems like a cracking little event, they are a great little crew too, and the Lovely Eggs sound spot on so we will be supporting them at Arden Road Social Club, Halifax on November the 8th. I’m not sure if this will be full band, some band or solo yet, but somebody will be there! 🙂
Let us know if you want to be on the guest list:
Also, DrownedinSound were at Cloudspotting Festival the other week and took a photo whilst me and Paul Mill (aka The Lord) were playing our set. You can take a look here:
The website has now been updated thanks to Vin over in Canada for sorting out another technical dilemma.
– New festival added to the gigs page.
– All press and reviews for the new album is being compiled here (slowly!):
And new blog page (you are reading it but here’s the link anyway 🙂 ):
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…

Here is a little promo video for the new album ‘The difficulties of…’ due out in February 2013.
Bit of an insight into the goings on at the chapel over the past year.
Couple of photo’s courtesy of ‘Fire Man Dave’ Ford from the gig supporting Malcolm Middleton at Hebden Trades Club. I was tired as hell but it was a really nice evening.
Fire Man Dave is also a fantastic talent at eating and doing all sorts of dangerous things with fire… see here
‘Johnny Powell and the Big Sad Face of Infinity’ will be playing one last gig before the album is released and this will be at the beautiful Salford Trinity Church in Manchester not far from Victoria train station. They will be supporting Kirsty McGee and The Listeners will also be playing. The night is put on by the fantastic Little Red Rabbit Records based in Manchester.
You can buy tickets here for £5 – I don’t think there are many….

Here is a picture of the fantastic church… it looks amazing in this photo by Peter Rea.
Hopefully see you all there….
I never thought the day would happen with a slackers motivation such as is mine, BUT, the new album is almost finished!
It has been recorded entirely up at the beautifully decaying Wainsgate Chapel on the lonely, windy, shockingly freezing hill of Old Town above Hebden Bridge.
Here are some very short previews of the goings ons:
