The piano in this hotel reception in Italy is garnished with a Martian brain in a vase. I don’t know why.

We're playing at this - it's going to be completely fantastic. We're doing a duo set - synths and looped acoustic guitar. Also, you'll be able to get cheaper tickets directly from me. £10 instead of £15.

At the Thunderbolt for the first time in a while. I asked Liz to do her ‘I’m in a band’ face.

A reminder that we’re doing an acoustic plus synths set on Wednesday eve at the Thunderbolt in Totterdown.

I think we’re on at 7.30. First TSIB live outing in 3 years!

Come and say hi. Or sway moodily. Or stare fixedly at the floor. Your choice!

Very important to refuel after rehearsing sad songs. Beer solves everything.

Got an acoustic gig coming up in Bristol, 7th Feb. More details closer to the time.

From the vaults! 2008 gig at The Fleece. I think this was the first song we played when the three-piece reconvened recently.

2008, this was. At The Fleece, Bristol.

I'd forgotten about this song; turns out it works really well acoustically with a bit of looping. Into the set it goes.

The acoustic has emerged from hiding. I’m teaching myself how to play some of the old tunes again and putting together an acoustic set.

I’ve had a good break for a couple of years, I’ve messed around with synths a lot in Paragon Sea, and shall continue to do so, but I’ve missed playing the gentler TSIB songs.
