We’re having a quick breather before the next couple of gigs in March. The first (Sat 9th) is an in-store set at Lewes’ legendary Union Music Store, and the second (Tue 12th) an evening at Bom-Bane’s restaurant in Kemptown, supported by Lovely Guy Hayes™.
Both are free acoustic gigs where I won’t have room to swing a drum stick, so I’ll probably be revealing my inadequacy on the cajon. We may also have to ration Charlie to just, say, 10 of his favourite instruments, and Matthew to 90 of his favourite decibels.
In the meantime, if you’re on Facebook you’ll find a set of pictures from last Wednesday’s gig at the Latest. You can also ‘Like’ our page while you’re there if that’s your sort of thing.
What better way to recover from pneumonia, I hear you ask, than to sit in the Arctic snow while Carlotta Luke takes photos of your band?
How about if you’re not wearing a jacket and Matthew, who turns out to be a crack shot, pelts you with snowballs? Perfect!
Must have been something about it, anyway, because last Sunday we finally got some proper photos with all five of us. Weirdly we seem to be smiling in most of them; it must be the magic of the Small Shipwrecks Shuffle – a recurrent theme kicked off by Farah whenever she’s first to start playing.
We’ll be using them for various promotions, flyers and gig applications, but for now you can see a few more on Carlotta’s website. Many thanks to her for freezing her arse off in the name of art.
