The Heimlich Sessions

I’m COMPLETELY thrilled to be part of this project, and working with Home For Waifs And Strays, The Herbert and DASH arts.

The Heimlich Sessions

Five performances drawn from the same set.
Five identities derived from 14-year-old forum interactions.
A joyous sonic celebration of the other, the odd and the unusual.

There have been several periods where, for various reasons, I felt uncomfortable leaving the house. During these times I often found online forums such as spaced-out.com & blueblood.net to be my connection to some form of community where my fears of being perceived as an oddball, weirdo or freak were pacified.
Subsequent therapy sessions focused not on fixing what was wrong with me, but of accepting that I was alright. Eccentric, certainly. Queer, definitely. But no more flawed than anybody else. And absolutely not fundamentally defective as a human being.

So in celebration of the peculiar in us all I’m making a three hour set, based on the teenage tendency to play guitar in their bedrooms for hours, making band names based on forum conversations all those years ago. Including costume changes, ukuleles, electric fiddles, and accapella classics you can expect sets from:

Grote von Klappers (The Queen of Duisburg)
Ow-Fuck-My-Hand
TripleKnobJoint with SnatchMembrane
Pigspingdle & The Swinging Dingleberries
Ore – Chasm

Join us at The Herbert for a proper gig atmosphere or online for such classics as ‘Longer Than Your Dick (pic)’ and ‘I’ve got a second floor fallout shelter (& I’ll give you the key)’
