The Shitegeist a collaboration with Hugh and Animal Buzz. It draws acts from the pool (of toilet water) of Irelands finest trash performers, musicians and filth mongers. The Shitegeist is more than a movement, it is a way of life, dragging art from the refuse of the environment in which we wallow. We bring you Post Punk Podge and The Technohippies and Hugh calls Ireland’s first Techno Ceilidh and House band Acid Granny put a bloody donk on ish TICKETS HERE

I pay tribute to those who gave me lifts on my ‪#‎hitchtofringe‬. I have decided to worship them as my gods. My deities are many and numerous allow me to list some of them for you. Hopeton Gordon ( boxer), Mark Woodcock (Conservation surveyor), Omar (Water Specialist), Singh and his nameless friend (Kabadi Wrestlers). Planet Granite Steve (Granite Mogul), Dennis O’Hara (Seaman) and Eurig (Sociologist). I’m afraid they are all of the names I can remember for now; I must consult the ancient texts from last month. I’m going to be writing about my trip and these gods that smiled upon me. I’m working on a map that outlines where these mighty ones took me, and individual articles on each. More Here.


I am going to hitchhike from London to the Edinburgh fringe. Like one of the Seanchaí/Storytellers of old, equipped with only my stories (and of course some clothing,cash,sandwiches, voice recorder,shillelagh, go pro, wine skin and a phone). I haven’t got a gig of any sort lined up but i’m approaching it very much as a pilgrimage to see what the buzz is. Should anyone want to hear my stories, perhaps I can tell them down an appropriate lane or in the bushes in the park. Or perhaps you know a suitable situation that would welcome such a vagabond? if not, It’s not important I will be documenting my adventure, though I’m not sure it’s necessary after creating the attached mood board.
