Just a quick reminder that I’ll be doing a semi-acoustic set alongside the amazing Asher Dust this Saturday as part of Here Comes the Sun festival at The Rising Sun Arts Centre in Reading. The Rising Sun is one of my favourite venues to play and here Comes the Sun is a great fundraiser with some great acts playing throughout the day. Advance ticket ticket are available for £8 from WeGotTickets or on the door for £10. Check out the poster below for the full lineup.
[Update 15/10/14] You can now pre-order the CD and Download versions of the EP from Bandcamp.
I’m really happy to officially announce ‘Along Dangerous Roads’, the new collaborative EP between Tiger Mendoza and David Griffiths. Following a conversation over computer games and soundtracks, we decided that we would try out a few tracks and see what happened. The result was this 6 track collection which blends our separate musical influences in to an ep we’re both very proud of. The tracklisting is:
Now That Days Are Colder
In Desperate Times
Along Dangerous Roads
Literature and Life
Home Is The Sailor
The artwork is by Ian Norris, writer and artist of the brilliant independent comic Fixed Up. The EP will be released in standard CD + download and download only editions but also as a special poster and download edition as well. To launch the EP, we’re doing a very special launch gig on Saturday 25th October at The Wheatsheaf, Oxford with support from the brilliant Motion Static. Check out the gigs page for more info and ticket details.
To coincide with the release, the site has had a bit of a facelift. Hopefully the new layout should make things a bit easier to find but if you do happen to stumble on to any problems, feel free to get in touch.
You may remember that back in February, we did a very special one-off gig with The Evenings in Oxford with lots of friends and an expanded Tiger Mendoza line up featuring Mark Wilden from The Evenings on drums and live vocals from Asher Dust and Michael Weatherburn from The Half Rabbits. I’m really happy to say that recordings are available for all 3 sets from that night and you can download them all for free! Links and details below.
Right then. I’m really happy to say that our collaboration with Michael Weatherburn from The Half Rabbits is finally being released in 2 weeks time on Monday 12th November! Not only that but it will be accompanied by a selection of brilliant remixes from some of my favourite current producers including Space Heroes of The People, Death of Hifi, Unit 27 + more. This is going to be a seriously great little package!
If that wasn’t great enough for you, Michael will be joining us live on stage at our gig at the O2 Academy, Oxford on Saturday 16th November. If you haven’t got your tickets yet, get them from here!
