Go and get the guitar

As I’ve mentioned I’ve some shows coming up. These require promotion on my part. I’ve always felt uncomfortable promoting shows at work above all. I’ve kept it to a minimum – promoting to a few at work but not through work. I know others who can do it without the awkwardness – and I’m not saying you shouldn’t promote shows at work – but it’s just whenever I do, I sense the spectre of David Brent hanging over me; and as I hand out flyers, to colleagues who’ve yet to tell me what they’re up to outside of work and then ask me if I would like to come along for a small fee, I hear Brent saying, ‘I’m an entertainer first and a boss second.’ So, I present to you the David Brent Syndrome. ‘Go and get the guitar’

Show Shows Shows

I’ve a bunch of shows coming up and I’ve put them in a list:

And that is the end of the list. Thanks. Maybe see you at a show.

Going For A Song: ‘Keep the Change’

Mattiel – Keep the Change

This year so far has been notable for songs entering my orbit and staying there on heavy rotation – Fontaines D.C.’s ‘Big’ and Mammoth Penguins’ ‘Closure’ come to mind.

The use of glockenspiel and those handclaps on the chorus of ‘Keep the Change’ had me coming back initially, and since returning I’ve not moved.
