BBC Radio Foyle appearance 26/02/15

I appeared on BBC Radio Foyle’s Electric Mainline show last week. I played a new song, had a chat with DJ & host Stephen McCauley and he played a track from the final release in the Octopus series, part 8.

Rollin’ high and mighty traps

Voices echo this is what salvation must be like after a while

“The Other Voices Music Trail will return to Derry~Londonderry from Feb 7th to 9th. We had more than 450 entries from bands and singer-songwriters all over Ireland and the UK and we’ve picked the best 60 to perform in the city’s venues, bars, cafes and cultural venues throughout the Other Voices weekend”.

We’ll play on Saturday 8th at about 5pm, sandwiched between Our Krypton Son and Overhead, The Albatross.

Echo Echo is a truly beautiful venue, and it’s free. Get on it!

Invaderband’s Xmas Landing

Many thanks to the 70 (I know your names) brave souls who ignored the awful weather and came to witness Invaderband’s Xmas Landing on Friday. It was a cracker. (See what I did there? No? Look at my hat, doofus). Thanks also for robust support on the night from the alarmingly young Freelance Cartel, and the fascinating one-man-rock-and-droll-band Sean Pemberton A.K.A. Mars Field. Truly excellent.

By Invadergigging during the year, we now have enough money to spend some time in a recording studio, so 2014 should see an Invaderband (deep breath…) RECORD.

Where your Central flower blooms

Invaderband live @ The Grand Central, Derry, 25/04/13.

There are quite a few videos of the night up on YouTube, but here’s ‘Tree Erection’ which is one of the songs on the forthcoming Poseidon Adventure Re-soundtrack project:

The set list, stolen, as was my red plectrum – main suspect being an unnamed member (Fergal Corscadden) of The Gatefolds, who also played on the night.

Thanks so much to everybody who came. I was surprised by the numbers there to be honest, and we even had Derry Punk Royalty (is that an oxymoron?) in the audience in the form of Undertones bassist and gentleman Michael Bradley, who later tweeted about it. Chuffed!
