So it’s Bloody Scotland festival in Stirling this weekend, and I’m doing a few things:
Fun Lovin’ Crime Writers are playing, 10pm Friday. Tickets here.
Scotland v England Football Match, 2pm Saturday, free to watch and laugh.
Come Hell or High Concept, 7pm Saturday. Tickets here. This is with Gordon Brown and Will Carver, talking about high concept fiction, which none of us know anything about.
Crime at the Coo, 9pm Saturday. This is sold out, I’m afraid. I’ll be playing some tunes most likely.
Come and find me somewhere!
American pals! FAULT LINES is only 99c on yer Kobo for the next few days. Enjoy!
In all the stushie around festival time, I forgot to post this. The Fun Lovin’ Crime Writers appeared on The Afternoon Show on Radio Scotland, playing tunes and chatting to Janice Forsyth and Grant Stott. You can listen here. We play ‘Psycho Killer’ at the start, then pop up at 1hr 42mins for a blether, then close the show with ‘Down in the Tube Station at Midnight’. Sounds not to shabby, I reckon.
Hey, I did a wee bit of radio journalism yesterday on The Afternoon Show on Radio Scotland, interviewing Rosy Naylor about Art Walk Porty, which she has organised. 27 mins in.
I’m stepping out from behind the drum kit this weekend, performing at the Victorious Festival in Portsmouth. I’ll be reading and playing some tunes at 6pm on Saturday on the Literacy Live stage, which means you can just squeeze me in between Gaz Coombes and The Cribs. Looking forward to explaining my black eye over and over again some more.
Here’s a thing I recorded for the Royal Literary Fund about writers who inspire me, in which I talk about the amazing Iain Banks and James Sallis. Enjoy!
