Hello, Practices have now started for the Superman Revenge Squad band gig. And it seems to be going quite well. It's the same band that I played with for my birthday gig four years ago: My brother Adam on drums, Gavin on accordion and piano, Jon on saxophone and Martin back on cello, and we're doing a mixture of old faves and a couple of brand new songs.
Dave Broadbent, the artist behind the cover of the Dead Crow Blues CD and the slowly coming dead crow blues graphic novel (and the Nosferatu D2 CD artwork too) has whipped up a poster for the gig.
Its at the Scream Lounge in South Croydon, and playing before us is the great cassettes, that I've played with a few times and really like (nick from cassettes and I were going to start a "misery rap" group at one point, maybe one day we will) and the William Nein Tea Party, who should be great too - I've played with William a few times as well, and he has some splendid songs.
A bit more non-superman revenge squad (but related) news. I recently wrote a play called "Yeah, this house is haunted" for the Breakfast Cat theatre company in Croydon, and they are putting it on for three nights after Halloween, as part of a double bill with Hammer Sandwich by Roberto Prestoni - here's the poster for it:
The story was obviously inspired by the song of the same name, from the Dead Crow Blues CD, but I've expanded and changed it quite a bit. Whilst it does feature a couple of ghosts, I don't think it'll be very ghostly. I'm looking forward to seeing people act it out.You can get tickets from here:
