This electronic smugglepot of candid flamebix is in the process of being carved out of lavander solar grits.
The album ‘In Bed With My Doona’ featuring ‘I’m so postmodern’ is now available in all good record emporiums. (You might have to convince the indie maestro behind the counter that it exists – if you’re feeling cheeky, try and pick them up – buying my album creates a window…c’mon…)

A GIGGLE OF GIGS – “go-go gadget August!”
Thursday 21st July. Doing a spot at the University of Tasmania’s Hobart campus. I assume in the bar. I assume starting at 8pm. God I dunno. Josh Earl, Andy McLelland, Duff, Mel Sargeant will be there too. Check local guides I guess.
Sunday 24th July. Tasmania’s favourite seminal folk-parody practitioners ‘The Renegades of Folk’ will be appearing at ‘Splendour in the Laughs’ @ Bar Open, 317 Brunswick Street. Fitzroy. From 4pm. (along with charlie pickering & michael chamberlin + lawrence leung & andy maclelland) I had no idea about this gig until I ego-googled myself. There you go. Maybe I dreampt it. (Renegades of folk is Josh Earl and myself)
FEATURE GIG: Wednesday 27th July.
Headlining at the Australian Songwriter’s Association’s ‘Jangle Gym.’

Friday 29th July. Albury Uni extravaganza. Not sure where exactly. I daresay, if you go to Albury uni, you’ll know more than me. Probably 9pm start.
Sunday 31st July. 15 minute music spot at Gasworks arts Theatre. Im on at 5pm. $8. (there are other musos and poets playing) Gasworks Arts Park 21 Graham St Albert Park, Melbourne. (I think you get the south Melbourne number 1 tram and its the second last stop.
