mixtape for mess+noiseMar 15 2012
I made a mixtape for Mess+Noise last week, with the theme of ‘What I Listened To In January’. It has lots of my favourite things, including Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, PJ Harvey, The Monks, Sleeping States & Boatfriends. You can listen to it here.
“see!” at the adelaide festival centreMar 06 2012

Line-up change for the annandaleFeb 27 2012
There has been a line-up change for our show at The Annandale on March 16. Unfortunately Rainbow Chan can’t play, but we are very excited to have Jordan Ireland (ex The Middle East) opening instead. I just played a tour of the UK & Europe with Jordan and loved watching him play every night. His new solo stuff is amazing. And I think this might be his first solo show in Australia. So anyway, it has fortuitously turned into a Spunk Records family night for Sydney, with Jordan, then the excellent Bearhug, and then us. Buy tickets here & come on down early.

australian march tourJan 18 2012
Well, it’s been a busy time these past 8 months. There were two Seeker Lover Keeper tours, the ‘They Will Have Their Way’ concert series, our inaugural See! shows for Sydney Festival, our upcoming UK & European tour in February and, just to finish things off for the time being, I am very pleased to announce that The Hello Tigers and I are doing one last Australian tour in March, before I sit down for a while and work on some new things.
This is our first headline tour in a year, and we plan on playing songs from all the various albums, in whichever order we deem appropriate. Dates & ticketing information are on the shows page. Please note that tickets go on sale on January 20. Supports will be announced very soon! We hope to see you at a show.
