Sparklehorse ‘Rainmaker’

What a fantastic record. 1996.


Iron and Wine

I’ve been listening to a lot of Iron and Wine lately…..

Frozen In Time.

A version of ‘Frozen In Time’ recorded at home a couple of weeks ago. I’ve started working on this with Kodiak Island now and it is sounding really great. Very happy.

Kodiak Island ‘Rowan and Rose’

While we are recording our album in Richard’s garage we thought a new song release would be a good idea. So ‘Rowan and Rose‘ is now available on Musical BEAR ‘records’.

You can download it from all good digital stores, like this one.


This is an edited version of ‘Rowan and Rose‘, the full, epic version will be on the album.

The video is directed by Jason Glenister.


The Buzz Club 30th Anniversary Tee Shirts

On November 17th 1985, 30 years ago today, I promoted my first ever gig. Over the years myself and Danny Hagan have put on The Stone Roses, Primal Scream, The Manic Street Preachers, Blur, Suede, The Charlatans, The Happy Mondays, Spiritualized, The Beautiful South, Dodgy, Cornershop and many more as The Buzz Club. Then, Robert Plant, The Flaming Lips, Bon Iver, Mumford and Sons, Laura Marling, Billy Bragg, The National, John Grant, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Joanna Newsom,  Fleet Foxes and many, many more as the Green Man.

So…I’ve decided every now and again on the 30th anniversary of a Buzz Club, if I have suitable artwork – to print a very limited run of tee shirts.

Here’s the first getting made! How exciting!

If you would like to order one, they are £15 for UK orders and £20 for the rest of the world. That includes p&p.

Here are a few versions of the first one…

Mail me at if you’re interested in a tee shirt. Thanks! X

Great gig in Guildford!
