What a blast!

IT HAPPENED, and to prove it, the audio recording of my first livestream DJ set is now up online!

You can listen to it here:

…or you can click on the show title which takes you to the full webpage with tracklisting and show description.

It was a bit of a mare getting all the technical bits to work but I thoroughly enjoyed myself once it was time to go live!

Now everything’s up and running, I’m organising another date to do it all over again 😃 Next time I’ll hopefully know how to add in some fancy transitions…

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO JOINED ME!  I was expecting a handful of friends but we made it up to 75 viewers in the end!  Proper special evening ❤️

The MissLLaneEous EP

I’ve finally smooshed some of my songs together and released my first EP!

It’s available on Bandcamp TODAY:

If you like your songs, silly, catchy and upbeat, then this one’s for you 🙂

It’s SO GOOD!

I’ve uploaded some of my songs to Soundcloud including this one, fresh off the computer:

Thanks to my brother Jae for recording it and for lending his ‘drunken’ voice along with my sisters Immi and Gwen and also Emma and Dan – you rowdy lot!

Fabe-ulous

Fabled preparations continue at lightening speed: re-writes and records have been done, soundtrack tweeks continue, new props are materialising and rehearsals are going great guns at Jackson’s Lane – very grateful for the space!

The photo shoot for the show by www.mecaniques.co.uk was a resounding success:

…as was the video promo shoot, the fruits of which are headed imminently internet-wards.

My second London preview date is also now organised: catch Fabled next Tuesday the 24th at 7pm at Theatre503.
Details and tickets here.

Many things (like actually buying my train/coach ticket up to Edinburgh) are backing up but every day brings progress!

The Postcards Cabaret at Jackson’s Lane last month was a storming success (find amazing pictures of the night by AbsolutQueer Photography here) and, off the back of it, I’m performing on the Bandstand at the Secret Garden Party this Sunday.  Somehow I’m going to pull a 20 minute Lois of the Lane act out of the bag…

On top of all this, I’ve added a new song to my songs page.  Please find ‘Android‘ there for your delectation.

Sleeps.

Beastly escapade

I’m upping the ante with finishing the script for my new show so expect WELL exciting news on that soony soon.

In guitar based news, I’m heading out to The Betsey Trotwood for another night of Village Green Preservation Society shenanigans tomorrow. This month’s theme is Bears vs Foxes.  I plan to do 2 of my songs that I have previously mauled there by forgetting the words as they were too new and not in my brain properly.  This is as close as I’ll be getting to the actual theme…  Come down!  It is but 3 of your English pounds and is always a great night out 🙂

Hot guitar action!

Sweaty times.

I’ve got 2 gigs coming up.  This Thursday the 30th I’m rolling out a new song for my monthly Village Green Preservation Society jaunt at The Betsey Trotwood.  No ideas what it’ll be as yet.  This month the theme is New York vs Yorkshire.  Grand.

Next Tuesday the 5th I’m going to be ‘busking’ at the London premier of Hobo with a Shotgun – including a Q&A with the Director – at XOYO in Old Street.  More details here.

The film originated as an award-winning ‘fake’ trailer for Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s Grindhouse and became an internet sensation via YouTube.  Starring Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner) in the title role, Hobo With A Shotgun is a full-on, no-holds-barred tour-de-force of gratuitous violence, gore and bloody mayhem inspired by exploitation movie classics of the 1970s and 80s.  Should be a night out to remember!

After this I’ve got a charity gig lined up for Sunday the 17th of July.  Details to follow…

Royal Circuit

I’m currently brushing up my Queen impression for this evening’s monthly Village Green Preservation Society jaunt.  I’ll be doing my version of a Queen song… as the Queen.  I’ll also be taking requests from my steadily growing catalogue of songs as I’ve actually practised them!!  Last month’s VGPS outing resulted in an almost finished new song.  Still not quite there with that one yet so I’m going to let it bubble away in my bonce for a bit…

Currently my next little outing will be at Bob Slayer’s Heroes of Alternative Comedy night at the Leicester Square Theatre on the 7th of May.  Not sure what I’m doing at this yet, but I’ll either be Lois of the Lane-ing or doing some songs.

After this I’m going to be part of a new show called Circuit put together by Iris Theatre.  Details on Facebook here and on Iris’ website here.

“The dark fairy-tale world of Circuit is an experimental performance project which blends the very best of emerging physical theatre, circus and contemporary dance.

A long forgotten, cavernous building broods in the dark, the air thick with the hum of a million ghosts. The silence is suddenly broken by the sound of a heavy metal door slowly swinging open. A child peers in through the darkness. In the shadows strange creatures, half human, half machine, begin to move…

Performed for two nights only at St Paul’s Church, Covent Garden, this is an evening of circus, music, theatre and dance not to be missed.”

I’m playing a musician android and will be doing some kind of bizarre skit with loads of different bits of music.  Looking forward to it!  The space is fantastic and there’s a whole bunch of really talented people getting involved.  Promises to be a grand evening.

In new show news: I am no longer taking this up to the Edinburgh Fringe this year unfortunately (curses) but I have about a third of it written and aim to have it finished and on before the year is out.

Right, back to Queen rehearsing…
