So here’s the next couple of episodes of the podcast.
Which is about the villain of the piece. Well, one of the villains. More than that, it includes remixed versions of two songs from the ‘Through These Veins’ ep. I was never happy with the mix fo that, so I thought I’d see about fixing it.
And episode 4 which is about a town called Ironbark:
I’ve decided to do an acoustic gig to launch the new album. Here’s the blurb:
Having hoodwinked an actual record label into releasing his latest album, Fit the Fourth, Tom Slatter has now decided to bully his friend and family into sitting through an evening of his music. You can come and listen too.
Tom will be performing an acoustic set in the Chapel at St Margaret’s House, Bethnal Green, London. It will include songs from the new album and others that tell the story of ‘Seven Bells John’ who has been haunting Tom’s music for the last five years. As it will just be Tom and his acoustic guitar you won’t be forced to endure those self indulgent solos that he puts in the studio version of his songs.
Between songs Tom is likely to tell bad jokes and complain about Martin from Bad Elephant records who now writes all his publicity material.
Tickets are free, but strictly limited in number. Doors at 7:30pm but you can turn up earlier and enjoy the marvellous food and drink at the Gallery Cafe.
You’ll be able to buy a copy of the album too, if you want one.
Opening act TBC
You can book yourself a free ticket at this link. It’s small venue, so while the tickets are free, once they’re gone they’re gone.
The dodgy voice acting continues as this episode tells us about Seven Bells John’s most heinous crime, the murder of the Jeremiah twins. ‘Won’t you tell us where the last one is?’
It includes the songs Lines overheard at a Séance and Moon in the Water.
Ahead of the release of my next album, Fit the Fourth, I thought I’d tell the story of Seven Bells John in chronological order. That way you might understand what half the music on the new album is about.
This one starts with some dodgy voice acting (I did my best!), followed by a bit of the story and the track Nightfall
My new album, Fit the Fourth is now available for pre-order in CD and digital formats.
