  7. Next weekend

    A reminder that we’re playing two Urthona shows next weekend. The first, on Friday, is at the Absolute Elsewhere event, at the Shelley Theatre, Bournemouth as part of the Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival. On Saturday we’re at Metal/the Feelgood Cafe at Chalkwell Hall in Southend on Sea. There’s a vid about the Feelgood Cafe series of events here. Hope to see some of you there.

  8. Atlantis? Exeter and Portsmouth Shows

    Urthona (only Neil, no Mark or Mike) will be supporting Julian Cope for two shows in Devon and Hampshire later this month, performing under the influence of Atlantis?, inspired by the band in Julian’s 131 novel. We’ll be playing in Exeter at the Phoenix on October 16th and Portsmouth at the Wedgewood Rooms on Oct 19th. The semi-improvised set will be totally different to the regular Urthona shows we’re doing as a trio in Bournemouth and Southend next weekend. All being well we’ll have time to play side 2 of the forthcoming Urthona album Hearing Secret Harmonies too. Confused? Yeah we are n’all and that’s OK.

    In the meantime here’s a pic of low tide at Rottingdean, East Sussex soon after sunrise last Saturday.
