News 20/01/2011 - New EP “Real Stuff” and being live on a big screen
Happy New Year to y’all.
Sooooo, my new EP Real Stuff is almost ready to unleash. It will feature 4 songs, one of which you may already be familiar with (“The Light”) as there’s been a music video for it doing the rounds for a while.
Tracklisting: Real Stuff, The Light, On The Roadside, Meanderings
News 11/12/2010 - BBC video session, and gig with The Book Club
Soooo, we did a live video session for the lovely people at the BBC last month. We played “Buried, Content”. This lead to some confusion, as the lovely host (Sophie Little) wanted to ensure the correct pronunciation of the word “content” - i.e. was it content as in “satisfied" or content as in "substance"? Well just so you know, the album title is Buried Content (substance) and the song title is “Buried, Content” (satisfied). Confusing title for a confusing song - it has 4 key changes! Anyways, here it be:
In other news, we play The Marquee in Norwich this Friday, supporting The Book Club (ex Milburn), with The Deacons and Eletric Youth Revolt. We will be unleashing a new song on your ass too. It is a rock opera called “Real Stuff”.
We are opening the evening at around 8pm. Tickets are £5 and are available from me, so contact me and I will personally deliver them to you and you will also receive a hug and/or handshake for FREE.
As if all the above is not exciting enough, I got to meet the lovely, lovely, lovely, Jenny Lewis last week, plus the brilliant Jason Boesel and Jonathan Rice :-D
Anyway that’s enough about me, so how’ve you been??
News 04/10/2010 - Music video for The Light, new gigs
Hot off the press, new music video for The Light which you can see below. It features animation, a dance routine with my band and very special guest appearance from God (thanks, God). The Light is a new song that you may have heard live recently if you’ve been to one of our shows. It’ll appear on the next EP/album (working title ‘Real Stuff’).
Got lots of live dates coming up:

And that’s not all! Next week we’re recording a live session for the Live at Old School Studio show on BTR Radio. And in November, we’re also being filmed for a special live video session by BBC Norfolk Introducing. More news on those to follow.
This Monday we play the Norwich Arts Centre supporting the mighty White Rabbits. They’ve been touring with the likes of Muse and Interpol recently, so they must be pretty daunted at taking to the stage after the mighty KB&F! Ahem….
In sad news, our usual drummer of drums Jim Musgrave is away, but in happy news, we have a very special guest drummer for the night, Jason of The Deets, La Roq Sportif, The Secret Hairdresser and Planet Beet radio to name but a few of his projects!.
Should be immense!
In other news, it’s been a hectic month for chroma keying for the forthcoming music video for brand new song “The Light” (release format TBC) which will be set in a cartoon world, and features the KB bird, some driving scenes, the Angel of the North and God. Yes, I said God.
Just before I sign off, here’s a (slightly bumbled) little cover of a song I’ve been enjoying lately by The Style Council
What a delightful month it’s been. Had a fantastic gig at Outline Magazine’s Riverside Music Weekend which was put on on a stage outside the Odeon cinema. You can see some fully edited gig videos at the below links! Big thanks to Alan for filming, Emma for putting us on and my beautiful live band (Matt Osborne and Jim Musgrave)
