Two new live albums released digitally through Bandcamp.

Saturnalia is a recording of my set from the Saturnalia festival at Macao in Milan a couple of years ago – one of my favourite ever gigs. Oregon Crisis is a recording from the Portland date of the USA tour with Blanck Mass and Steve Hauschildt, one of my favourite gigs of that tour. Both are mastered by John Hannon and Jack Callahan respectively.

I chose to release these due to gig cancellations and loss of income related to myself and my label Alter due to the COVID19 outbreak. If you cannot afford to pay the Bandcamp price for whatever reason then get in touch and we can sort something. Everyone is effected right now but your support during these bleak and uncertain times is nonetheless appreciated.

A special two-day event at Café Oto this October. Curated by myself and featuring a mix of old friends, new friends and long time inspirations.

October 18th:
Helm w/ JG Thirlwell & Apartment House
Andrew Chalk & Tom James Scott
Anna Peaker

October 19th:
Helm / Valerio Tricoli (duo)
Teresa Winter
DJ Lara Croft’s Dentist
