Here you can enjoy some of my recent live performances in the comfort of your underpants. My shows are a mix of story-telling and songs – ‘gig theatre’ they call it. Or stand-up tragedy. Anyway hope you enjoy the cut of my jib and the taste of my wares.
London Museum Of Comedy | Nov 2022
Big Slice Bandcamp Live Stream
Edinburgh Fringe | Aug 2022
These are some snippets of my one-man show Anoint My Head – How I Failed to Make it as a Britpop Indie Rockstar performed at the Caves in Edinburgh 24 days in a row. You can either dip into the songs or watch the full monty below…..
First up is a very early Pointy Birds track for the completists (of which there are none). It’s called Married to a Squirrel.
Next up, I give you Benefit Office. I was (and still am) convinced this is future number one. People in Edinburgh are still singing this in streets and Spotify listeners are through the roof, (51 at last count)
Thirdly, a newbie called Falling Apart at the Seams which ended the show. Now, I don’t want to big this one up too much but I think it might be best song ever written. You can’t not sing along.
And/or finally, you can watch the full fat show here:
15 Minutes of Shame Interview - The Caves, Edinburgh
I enjoyed being a guest on the fab 15 Minutes of Shame podcast. In a salubrious toilet setting in the Edinburgh Caves, I chatted with host Pete about the show, the book and the band over G&T and opal fruits. You can watch that same interview right here and right now…
Rock n Roll Book Club @ Dublin Castle, Camden | April 22
Here is footage from the Anoint My Head book launch at the Dublin Castle in Camden which involved a chat with host Tony Gleed, some readings and a Q&A. I then dusted down the plectrum and played some Pointy Birds songs. It was too much fun xx
It’s the Blur v Suede gig at Town and Country club in Kentish Town. Marcus and me sneak into the aftershow knowing Blur are about to enter the where are they now files, and we are rightful heirs to their indie pop throne…
At last! the Pointy Birds get a review in the NME! Now it’s only a matter of time before rock n roll world domination…
Or watch the full rock n roll book club right here, right now as Jesus Jones once sang..

Lastly, I get all Jackanory on your ass by reading the first chapter of Anoint My Head – How I Failed to Make it as Britpop Indie Rockstar. So if you are sitting comfortably, I’ll begin…
About Anoint My Head
Here is a short film in 8 segments all about the book. I had an idea the film would be part of a stalker vlog where the protagonist is in car outside Ricky Gervais’s mansion waiting in hope on Ricky to tweet about the book or turn it into movie. Kind of Marion and Geoff meets King Of Comedy. But I never got around to it. Yet.
Dear Sir or Madam will you read my book? It took me years to write, will you take a look? Ok, I will….The paperback version of my effort Anoint My Head has just arrived in the post. Gulp! Watch to find out if it had printed ok, plus a guest intruder who muscles in on the action…
