The Drifter’s Escape

Entkommen

Gosh it’s been quiet here. Even tumbleweed would have been an exciting distraction. I’ve kind of been pretty full-on with Invaderband this year, but the good news is The Poseidon Adventure re-soundtrack is virtually finished and will be released next year. In advance of that, a track from it entitled ‘Entkommen’ (meaning ‘Escape’) will be broadcast at this years 5th The Dark Outside event (‘A site specific 24 hour FM radio broadcast in a place where you might never hear it’) on 23rd Sept 2017.

The track will also be released in a physical format by the superb Polytechnic Youth label early 2018.

Invaderband Is Nigh

It’s been a while. Sorry I’ve been quiet. Life, etc.

But I’m delighted to finally be able to announce my next record. It is the self-titled debut album from Invaderband. And I believe it’s the best thing I’ve ever been involved with. It will be released on 25th November on Digital Download and Vinyl LP formats.

Pre-orders of the vinyl edition will also bag you a free & exclusive 3-track CDr of previously unreleased Invaderband material. These tracks will not be made available in any other way, ever. An instant rarity. Anyway, you can listen to the opening track and pre-order here.

 

If you don’t want to use bandcamp, you can also pre-order a copy directly from me, which is fine and dandy as it means I won’t have to pay bandcamp or paypal fees.

“Tickets”

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!
