World Premier of Flail Thursday 19 June

Hello – It’s me saying about a gig I’m doing with Martin Butler this Thursday at the Club Inégales in London. It’s a thing we’ve been working on for a while – four songs from me set into a through-composed piece by Martin. This premiere will of course be wildly under rehearsed but it will, I know, have it’s moments.
Martin, like me, has a footballer named after him so here, to avoid confusion, is a link to the gig  and also to the real Martin Butler.
