This is where I list open mics I intend to perform at. Frankly, I'm likely to chicken out, but if you add a supportive comment that may increase the likelihood of me showing up. Needy or what?

Look what I made!

This is where you can access various stuff I've produced over the course of my long and haphazard creative career.
My various blogs are listed over to the right.

You can buy my collection of short stories, Close Up Magic, on Amazon here.

You can buy a hard copy of my novel, 'the black car leaving', and my critical examination of the working class novel, 'A Different Story', on Lulu here.

Songs I'd cover if I played covers.

At the open mic nights I play, I'm often one of the few acts who don't do cover versions. To me I wouldn't be adding much to the originals so it's not worth the effort of learning other people's songs.
It occurred to me to cut out the middle-man and just provide links to songs I would cover if I was so inclined. I'll add a new set every couple of weeks.
Here they are;
Just Another Day - Misty's Big Adventure. 
Love is Stronger Than Death - The The.

Where Were You? - The Mekons.
Time Trades - Jeffrey Lewis.

Getting Piggy With It - Cassetteboy.
Emperor's New Clothes Rap - Cassetteboy. 

True Love Will Find You in the End - Daniel Johnston.
Griefseedling - The Capstan Shafts.

Most of these are also available on Spotify. You can find them by clicking here.
