Dead Capital was recorded over seven days in January 2017 at Berlin's CandyBomber Studios. Alongside A.S. Fanning on bass and co-production duties I was joined by Fredrik 'Good Old Fred' Sunesen on drums, Candice Gordon on vocals and 'Downtown' Dan Fitzpatrick on organ, piano and accordion. Ingo Krauss recorded us through a desk built for Herbert Van Karajan in the early 50s using a plethora of vintage microphones and pre-amps. We recorded live in a room dripping in Politburo chic and learned that sometimes the sound of failure is what you really want to hear.
We ate cheese rolls, smoked too many cigarettes and channelled the spirit of former Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Packie Bonner. We set out not to create a product but to capture a moment in time. I like to think we did.

It's with immense pleasure I can announce a very special London Show to celebrate the release. The always amazing Russell Joslin will be opening proceedings and I'll be performing with an all-star band
