I wish I’d known about this when I wrote the last one…

23 Apr

Had I known when I was diligently writing a review of Andrew Fagan’s book Swirly World (see last post, four days ago) that he in turn had mentioned me (or my music at least) in this month’s New Zealand Musicians Magazine I so would have mentioned it. So so (but not “so so”. Eh what?)

Here’s the interview, and if you scroll down – down – down – right down to the bottom he mentions his favourite songs. And amongst them is ‘River Song’ (actually called ‘River Calls Me Now’, but who’s complaining?), which I wrote and recorded with Darryn Paterson-Harkness on the very night that we met, and which was later released as a track on a New Telepathic’s album.

Here’s the song in video form.

(And I’m quietly pretty chuffed, by the way.)

Nowhere Festival 2014

9 Nov

This Wednesday I’ll be dusting off my poor, under-used guitar, and performing alongside Darryn Paterson-Harkness at the Audio Foundation’s Nowhere Festival. Under the pseudonym TOFU HORSE, Darryn and I will be playing a set of the old and the new: New Telepathics songs, Goodbye Light tunes, and even a brand new, as-of-yet-unperformed-live song of mine.

Here’s a little taste of what we’ll be doing. We recorded this demo a few years ago with drummer Rich Pharaoh (I’m on guitar and singing; Darryn is on bass.) However, this Wednesday Darryn will be executing the amazing feat of playing drums and bass/guitar at the same time. All I have to do is pull out a few solos.

The Nowhere Festival is running from November 12th – 16th, and features a great number of awesome musicians and performers. For the entire 5 nights you need only pay $40, but for each individual night it’s a ten bucks deal.
