First show of 2015, and news of new record 'news'

Happy to announce our first gig of 2015! At the lovely Lexington, in London on March 22nd. We are happy to be opening for Cian Nugent, who is an incredible guitar player. Looks like the full five piece will be on stage for this show, a sort of electric banjo, fiddle, piano keys, cello and guitar affair, very much in line with the sound of our new record. WHICH IS FINISHED! There will be some news about that in the coming days.... sounds will follow soon after... In the meantime, please do share this FB event page link or invite people along. The sound at this place is great, and we hope to see you all there. Get yr tickets now! With bells on, like Simon.

A Brighton gig on Friday Nov 21.

Hello Hello,

The first gig we ever played in Brighton was at upstairs at the Fitzherberts. That was me and Simon, fresh from moving out of Cornwall. There were about 9 people there, two of them were Nick Cave and his partner. It was "vibey." And just over 3 years later we are going to play there again. We played a couple of shows at the big place next door, The Dome, as part of Brighton's Great Escape festival, and a Source new music night. Not the best shows we've ever done. So this could be good. We do intend to be real in our feelings, and maybe you can feel them too in a small room. It's easier to be hospitable in a small place that feels like it could be, or have been, a home. That would be the hope. It's a Red River band and also Simon Drinkwater on the bill. Not sure of the order of performance yet, but if you happen to be in Brighton your presence would be warmly welcomed. We will once again be playing songs from forthcoming new album, and a couple oldies.

solo show sunday 28th september

We like it down at the Servant Jazz Quarters in Dalston. People whine about Dalston. Who gives a knuckle. So there's going to be another David Morris // Pollyanna Valentine show there and it's FREE. Sunday Sept 28. But this time it will also include a rare screening of Mike Davies and Ed Sanders' cornish-psych film-short MORITORO. With a live soundtrack performed by the pair on messed up guitars and noise boxes! Tell your friends. Dalston Knuckles x. You can watch the trailer for MORITORO via the facebook event page link below.
