Miserable Man new single, Nobodaddy album launch, new Feral Mouth video

I recently reviewed the beautiful Nobodaddy album Longing For Flight and the album receives its official launch with a gig at The Birdcage on Saturday (8th Feb.) with free entry.

If you wanted your evening to go on a bit longer it would be well worth following this up with the Drink ‘n’ Jive DJs monthly set at the Ten Bells, which always creates a superb atmosphere.


The Blueberry has an evening of Cuban music, and a bit further afield is the annual “The Room” at Gorleston’s Ocean Rooms. I attended this last year and it is more than a bit special. Several bands on several stages, playing in rotation, in the style of the “Later” TV music programme. Featuring, amongst others, Ruby & the Ruff Cuts, and Lauren Dove in the house band. Recommended if you can get there.

Our popsteady hero with the Rasta heart and gypsy spirit, Miserable Man is still on his touring travels in Asia but has just released a superb new single. Available as a 7″ vinyl from Soundclash in Norwich, or as a download for a mere $2 on Bandcamp. https://hobokenhifi.bandcamp.com/


On Tuesday 11 at The Bicycle Shop, Hot Feet are playing, with Stacked! also hosting an event on the same night at The Rumsey, and on Thursday 12th at the NAC we have a BFR night featuring a double headline of Wooden Arms, and Heart of a Dog, and support from Cove Hithe.


Of course, next weekend on 15 February, for Valentine’s, the mighty Bo Nanafana returns to OPEN for the “Slow Boat to China”


Finally, our boys in Feral Mouth this week released a superb video for their new-ish song Tatters. It really is a good job and captures them in perfect settings. Take a look on YouTube
