3 Minute Heroes

February 27th, 2017 by Sally

Its a very good song! Its also the name of a Youth Project that I have been involved with recently through The Warren, turning schoolchildrens lyrics into a song and contributing this track to an album. It will be used to inspire children to express themselves and deal with their mental health issues in a healthy way. The album will be released digitally for free worldwide and will be accessed by young people through rolling blog updates with other links relating to mental health and music included. Many other awesome Hull musicians are involved. I had great fun recording my tune last week with Pat at AOO Studios 😀 So watch this space for more information about this release! <3

#ThreeMinuteHeroes #HearMeOut A Warren Youth Project Initiative Integrating Music and Mental Health. Coming soon!! @2017hull

Nothing Stronger than a Girl….

February 10th, 2017 by Sally

A few weeks ago I met up with a lovely lady called Holly who interviewed me about my life – go and get yourself a brew and have a nice long read! Its long because I talked for an hour long stop… :O

Her whole blog is really interesting so I highly recommend that you have a bit of a dig around the other posts too and of course if you are a girl with a story – I am sure she would love you get to get in touch with her to take part… x

 

January’s Post…

January 29th, 2017 by Sally

Greetings everyone! it is nearly the end of Januarywhich I mention for the sake of having a generic reference point in time to which everyone can refer to.

I have been busy celebrating Christmas, drinking my body weight in excellent wine in the Basque country and recovering from a selection of viruses and illnesses! hurray! Although I am somewhat behind schedule with my activities… I have also garnered a small selection of shows early this spring which I shall announce to you now.

25th March 2017 – CUTE OWL Festival of Innovative Music @ The Troubadour in London. Current Billing is Tangerinecat, Stephanie Finegan,Code: Marla vs Spire Cranes and myself! Official event and Links to tickets to follow….

27th March 2017 – The Gaslight Club @ Oporto Bar in Leeds. More deets HERE

30th March 2017 – Awayke 12 @ The New Adelphi Club. More Deets HERE

I appreciate this is a rather long way away, so if you can’t wait that long… then get yourselves down to this show next Friday, where I will be performing with my band The Immigrants. We are an ultra groovy 7 piece dance party band. Sharing the stage with some other wonderful acts of which more details can be found HERE

In October I undertook a collaboration with my friend Barney. We performed a durational performance art piece at Ground Art Gallery entitled Control. It was kindly and meticulously recorded by some excellent humans, and my next task (after doing my tax return) is to respond to Barneys video edit via the medium of sound……watch this space.

A small tale and some new videos…

November 12th, 2016 by Sally

A few months ago I made a trip to London to catch the Yayoi Kusama exhibition and hang out with my fella. On the evening before we went out to a Wetherspoons near our hotel. I walked in and instantly it struck me as strange that there were so many people in the pub but it was so quiet!!

I had inadvertently walked into the regular deaf peoples night that is held there 🙂 I am hearing impaired and I know no other hearing impaired or deaf people really at all, so seeing so many people at once was a new thing for me! I got talking to one of the other people there after they signed to me but… I know no sign language! (It is one of the things on my eternal to do list to learn, should I find myself in the situation that my hearing gets even worse than it is now).

I mentioned that I was a musician and that I played gigs in London a couple of times a year. I told him where he could find my stuff on the internet and then he asked if I subtitled my videos…. I explained that I didn’t but that I would certainly do so from now on! So after I managed to get some filming done at one of my recent shows I have some new video’s up online and they are subtitled! hurray! Have a look on my videos page HERE

I am currently getting ready for my show next Wednesday at The Basement in York. I’m supporting Funke & the Two Tone Baby which means its going to be a really awesome show! Hopefully see you there!

PONYTONE MIXTAPE Pt.1 & 2

January 7th, 2016 by Sally

Ponytone: A Cross-Cultural Mixtape pt.1 by Aquarium Drunkard on Mixcloud

The Aquarium Drunkard Says…..

Like a ghost ship hovering somewhere off the coast, broadcasting crackly pirate-radio blasts into the ether, Ponytone is as mysterious as it is unrivaled. And by that I mean it is an aural treasure. Welcome to the second installment of an irregular series in which I highlight some of my favorite voices online (and beyond). Reportedly based in the Con Dao Islands off the southern coast of Vietnam, Ponytone’s founder/editor, Lucie, digs through crates of vinyl in the darkest corners of the globe with an emphasis on jazz, disco, rock, soul, psychedelia and off-kilter pop from around the world. Much of the music featured has never before been available online. Without question, one of my favorite music blogs going today. Grab the two-part mix, below, and be sure to bookmark Ponytone. I promise you will thank me later. – ADhttp://www.ponytone.com/

Here is also part 2.

Ponytone: A Cross-Cultural Mixtape pt.2 by Aquarium Drunkard on Mixcloud

I thank him greatly…

I forgot about TOOL

November 20th, 2015 by Sally

I was reminded of the existence of this frankly most excellent band last night. Tool – the morning music of champions.
