Yay! Massive thanks to Mark Hellewell who recorded and recently uploaded the semble vs sugardrum gig we did as part of the wupadupa Freedom Festival for Amnesty International last October.

Glastonbury thanks

Jul 4, 2010

Thank you to all those who came to see me and Matt play at Glastonbury last weekend. I had a great time and ended up doing around 7 gigs altogether, a couple on my own but mostly with the amazing Matt Kelly.

Thank you also to the equally  amazing Matt Tweed who did some great bazouki playing with me at my 4.30am gig on Wednesday night/Thursday morning and did sterling work getting the cafe to keep us fuelled with Brandy Hot Chocolates :)

an faq of sorts

Feb 20, 2010

I had lots of lovely feedback after the solo gig I did at the beginning of Martha Tilston's gig at the Rose Theatre in Kingston recently. A number of people asked some interesting questions which I thought it would be good to share the answers for here...

lyrics ahoy!

Jan 23, 2010

At last! I've finally managed to find the time to update the lyrics section of the site!

Just click on a song title over there on the right, and the lyrics for that song will magically appear on the screen.

busy busy busy...

Jul 12, 2009

we've not got many gigs planned for the foreseeable future as we've got to dedicate some time to recording some of the many songs that have been developing over the last few months.

The festival season this year has so far been great, especially Glastonbury.

We'll still be doing the odd gig here and there so keep checking this website or our myspace for any updates.

a review

Aug 18, 2008

We've had a review of both of our EP's by those lovely people at losing today magazine.

’Absence of friends’ the title track is without doubt the jewel in the crown, flighty pastoral florets, vocals a la Tim Buckley and a stately fragile persona make this a touching gem in the making, the shy eyed undulating craftsmanship giving way to the sumptuous moments of flowering vibrancy of the beautifully conceived bouquets of Nick Drake like thoughtfulness.

Oops! just realised I haven’t updated my blog in 7 and a half months! You turn your back to do some washing up and make a sandwich and next you know over half a year has passed, there’s a new mayor and winter is just a distant snowy memory.

It seems like only yesterday that I was babbling on about the Amnesty Festival, cheese, house gigs and the future of the bic biro in modern society.

During that time many things have happened in the world of sugardrum - new band members, new songs, a new band that I’ve joined, new homes, new jobs etc...
