The Doomed Bird of Providence – London Show

First show of the year is in London at the Horse Hospital.  With MacGillivray and Harpoon Group (Robin from Dead Rat Orchestra).  We are big fans of both, should be a great night.  It’s the launch of  Macgillivray’s album ‘Watermarked in Flame’ on Antigen Records.

Thank you Folkestone

We had a lovely time in Folkestone last night. This was at The Brewery Tap UCA Project Space. The audience were great and the organisers were brilliant. So thank you everyone. Robin/Harpoon Group and Simon Finn were both in the finest form. This brings a close to these shows for 2017 at least.

This will now segue into a thank you for what has been a funny old year. We did however release a pretty good 3rd album – we are grateful to Justin & Helen of Front & Follow for getting it out there. Also, thank you to all who bought it, reviewed it or gave it some airplay.

All the best to you, the reader of this message, in 2018.
