After a lean couple of years I am finally off to a gig tonight; the first post-lockdown one that I've booked which is actually going ahead!

Winterfylleth at Rebellion in Manchester for anyone interested.

Getting up for work will be a slog after the late finish, but Grimmfest always programme top-notch films so it's worth it!

PSA - Zappa's 'Peaches in Regalia' is the one you choose if you only have one track to stay with you for the rest of your life. Pretty much all you can need is in there.
