New album rearing it’s pretty head, and some ageing news. Oh, old EP no longer sold out too!

What’s going on with the big sad face of infinity you ask?

Well, I never got round to talking about the gigs of recent with Drugstore and the Hey Manchester! gig with Last Harbour, who were a loverly bunch of folk. There were some other things I would have mentioned if my memory would kick in but there’s no point waiting for that now, it’s been way too long.

The newest news is the NEW album, finally up and running with recording up at the lonesome and beautiful old decaying chapel of Wainsgate on the hill above Hebden Bridge high in the pennines – it has special significance to me which makes it all the more precious a happening.


Yep, that’s the recent news, recording at wainsgate – going really well thanks to engineering skills of Mr. Mill, taking a real experimental approach – little DIY studio set-up going on, 14 songs possibly 15 – lots of thinking, lots of learning – lots of art installations, lots of biscuits. More people will be drafted in for recording soon too which will be nice. Nice not to have to play anything myself.


 And finally, ‘The broken leg sessions’ EP released on the Rural Colours label last year will no longer be sold out soon thanks to Darren H of Dreamscope Productions for sorting out another pile of them – so feel free to order one on the web page now if you so fancy.

News!: BBC Radio Manc / Drugstore / James Blackshaw / Last Harbour / New album

A bit of temporary busyness going on at the moment. Last week was a really nice support slot with Drugstore who put in a real gutsy show at Hebden Trades Club… also joined them on stage to sing on their new single ‘Aquamarine’ which was a bit of a larf. really nice night all round and they were a good bunch of folk. Their new album is getting good feedback too

Some gigs we’re really looking forward to coming up…

this sunday, A Hey Manchester! event with Last Harbour and A Rookery at Hebden Bridge Trades. Followed by a gig at the fantastic Band on the Wall in Manchester on Monday 2nd of April with Air Cav who sound fantastic live. I’ve watched a vid.

This one should be spot on. A Sneeze Nights event on May the 7th at The Works in Sowerby Bridge with James Blackshaw (YOung God Records amongst others) listened to his albums many a time and, man, do they drag you in.

Finally they’re playing a Johnny Powell and the Big Sad Face of Infinity track or two live on BBC Radio Introducing Manchester this sunday (i think). I have no more details on this. I believe it is to promote the ‘New Manchester Review’ night we’re playing at next week which sounds like a great event to keep your ear out for over the coming months.

Fare ye well.
