To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Gaffer Records are hosting a series of shows across Europe. I'll be playing their London date on May 6th at Cafe Oto in an amazing trio with Alex Ward and Steve Noble, supporting LOUP.

They released my debut improv album - 'Koi Bombs' with Mark Holub and Toby McLaren. Then 'Languages..' with Sheik Anorak and Mark Holub, '..And It Ended Badly' by Dead Neanderthals, and my solo tape 'Antennae'.
