Happy Weekend Peoples,
Its now nearly 50 days into 2020 and there’s exciting times ahead.
It’s been an ace 6 weeks or so, working away, I’ve already had the honour to host two amazing gigs – Stone Broken and Western Sand for Muttley’s Birthday Bash at the Iron Road and the first Dementia Fest of 2020 in Wolverhampton.
Resurrection Mill has been selling well (thank you so, so much) and The Call is now completed. Yes, completed. My radio show is still every Saturday and next week I’m airing at interview with the Leigh Matty form the brilliant Romeo’s Daughter – so make sure you tune in to that. She’s amazing. – Tune in every Saturday www.mmhradio.co.uk 10am to midday.
The Call will be released on the 1st May but I will bring out a sneaky collection of copies when I hit the road on the ‘Self-help and sporadic hairs’ tour in April and May. Releasing a novel is always an exciting but nervous time. You put your heart and soul into these pages and prey that it’s not complete shit. But in the words of Margarita Gakis. “Finished crap can be edited. Unfinished greatness languishes forever.”
The Call, my new novel is based around this new wold of the resurgence of rock music. It contains the fictional classic rock band Raven Black Whiskey Stone and their rise to the top. It also contains cameos from many of my favourite bands in the UK rock circuit right now, so look out for them making an appearance – including Theia, The Rocket Dolls, Wayward Sons, Ryders Creed and so much more. I’m very much looking forward to get it out there. The author proof copy gets delivered tomorrow so that will be a little brown trouser time in K Mally HQ.
I’m also writing my new set in preparation for my tour. I can’t wait to get back on the road with my new stand-up show. Please, grab your tickets if you can. I’m opening in Chester, then playing London, Stoke, Deal, Cannock and Burton. Lyndon Webb is my special guest and London as the incredible Guthrie and Shynne to join the party, Touring is always a nervous experience, getting bums on seats, paying booking fees etc but when you hear the laughter it’s always worth it. The tour starts in April and runs through to the end of May. I’ll be 46 when the tour starts. I’ll be 47 when it finishes – exciting times indeed. Grab your tickets today if you can. Only a fiver- whooooo.
Next weekend I can’t wait to host RockPool in Blackpool and what an honour that will be. 10 bands but with the sensational Ravenbreed, Revival Black and Scarlet Rebels present – the talent in the Waterloo that night will be immense.
Bring on the chips, candy floss and rock and roll. And in the words of Marco Mendoza “Viva La Rock”
