Just to let y’all know that Kelly and I have agreed to take a break from the band for a bit. We’ll reconvene in the middle of the year to see where we’re at then. In the meantime, you can still listen to our music, or indeed download it here!
As many of you will know, our Christmas gig at Banner’s was cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control (i.e., them not paying their regular staff). However, we remain available for gigs of all kinds, and in the meantime, all the very best! (Don’t forget that you can donate to a good cause by downloading our Xmas single – or, if that’s too, er, Christmassy for now, the B side)!
Peace and love,
Last night’s gig at Banner’s was great – and, breaking news, Banner’s thought so too! So much so they’ve asked us back, not in our regular three monthly slot, but next month! Keep 12th December clear in your diaries, and await updates…
The stage awaits… Venus @ Banner’s, 7th November (pic: manicpopthrills)
Just a quick reminder – our next gig is at Banner’s, Markinch, on Wednesday, 7th November. Hope to see you there!
In or around August this year (we haven’t kept the exact date, we’re just waayy too rock n’ roll to do such a thing) Kelly and I have been celebrating the life and works of Venus Carmichael for 10 years. We were keen to mark the occasion in some way, because what started as a side project has now become a special thing that I know we both cherish as a real bright spot in our lives. Whatever else is going on, when I strap on that guitar and she picks up that tambourine we know that, at some point, maybe not every song on every night, but at some point, musical magic is going to happen!
So. Ms Brooks has secured a couple of rooms of the Dalriada, Portobello, for the evening of Sunday, the 19th August, and we egregiously request your presence! It’s a great place where I’ve only done spoken word before, but it’s a regular music pub, with great acoustics, a friendly atmosphere, and good food and beverage.
As you can see from the pics, it’s along the seafront at Porty, so easily accessible from the centre of town by various buses. There’ll be us, and a couple of other bands too!

More details soon, of course, but in the meantime, a special shout out to Fife fans: I’m thinking of investigating a bus to take us there, if there are enough of you interested, so if you are, please get in touch via the usual channels as soon as possible and I’ll look into costs. It would be great to see you there!

Big, big thanks to Casi, Roland and everyone else involved in the evening of Whisky, Words and Music tonight as part of ReImagination: Glenrothes. We had a blast!
If you enjoyed our music, and want to hear more, our next scheduled gig is Wednesday, 1st August, in the cosy surrounds of Banner’s Hotel, Markinch. But stay tuned for more news soon!
