Hey holiday revellers!  All going well with your festive season?  Good, good – glad to hear it.  Me?  Us?  Ah, not so much.  Both myself and my lovely wife are ill with variations of the bug that is ‘going around’ and the week has been less than celebratory.  Apologies to those awaiting the RFM end-of-year round-up or responses to personal emails.  I’ll be back on it as soon as is feasible.

In the meantime, here’s something to stick in the leather-bound filofax that Santa brought you for Christmas.  The blurb:

This is the line up for Hogwash 3, Ojud and Horrible Injury’s night of ambience, spoken word, electronics, noise, whatever you fancy.

This month we have Leeds no-audience noise stalwart Midwich, Chrissie Caulfield, who in her own words is “currently exploring the possibilities of octave violins that are tuned in the cello range” and epic spoken word, guitar noise from Forgets, featuring Wind-up Birds’ Kroyd.

£3 in, doors around 8:15pm, and Hogwash Djs playing all sorts between the acts.

Cool, eh?

Hogwash is a monthly programme of interesting oddness that deserves your support and I was flattered to be asked by Noah to be part of it.  I’ll be performing a version of the critically acclaimed set (“best midwich set ever” – Phil Todd) that I played at Matt Robson’s night a couple of weeks ago.

This will also be the last midwich gig for a while – my year of ‘playing out’ is over.  Our first child is due to be born at the end of February and I intend to embark on a lengthy period of semi-retirement until I’ve earned enough husband/father points to sneak out again.  I think that is how it works…  The blog will continue, as will my recorded efforts, baby permitting.

See you all there!
