Since my last post... A cracking graveyard photoshoot with Crestfall Photos. I played The Worm Song and others in the middle of Ford Park Cemetery... All the pictures are now on my facebook page for your perusal in the Face Of Woe album.
Alienfox: Entity was awesome. That is all. There was a parade of hats and collars made by the mahvellous Alienfox (who is currently comissioned for Wella), interspersed with incredibly good music and me doing song and performance poetry. I played I Am, Fix, Rose, Blood and Marriage and Say it with Flowers to a packed audience. You can see the WHOLE SHOW here. I am 19 minutes in:
Then Dolly Delight's Jungle Fever the following Thursday... Had a really good singalong audience. Again it was packed. I performed Daisy Daisy, As I Do Time and Idle Vice and thoroughly enjoyed myself.
The full Miss Von Trapp videos for both Alienfox: Entity and Jungle Fever will be up on my Youtube shortly but there are short clips from Jungle Fever on my facebook page.
