So it started on the 14th August with the publication of MTV Geek’s review of The Islanders. I’d feel a little vain quoting from it, so please do go to http://geek-news.mtv.com/2013/08/14/the-islanders-review/ and read for yourself. And then buy the book at http://theislandersmusical.bandcamp.com !
Then on the Wednesday I made an appearance on the Joyzine show on Radio Croydon. I was there to talk about The Islanders, but other topics of conversation included my history as a failed indie pop band, my Britpop club night Nuis@nce and how I came to find myself playing in a regenerated version of top Britpop act Menswe@r. With Johnny Dean. You can download it as a podcast here: http://croydonradio.com/podcast/show.php?HistoryID=d865576e-93a0-08af-253f-5a80ea3036db I rock up around the second hour of the show. Thanks to Paul Madden for having me on!
And on Friday I played a sold out Rattlesnake in Islington as part of Menswe@r (v3.0). It was a bit amazing. Johnny talked about it here: http://www.menswearband.com/articles/Johnny%20Dean%20interview.html and then the NME parroted it here: http://www.nme.com/news/menswear/72078
