The explosion of stuff

March 26, 2014

…and suddenly you look around and realise that there is so much stuff going on that you’ve almost no time to tell people about it. So, to rectify that, here’s a  rundown of what’s happening with the music and the writing and a few other bits and bobs. De Saw and Finkle have had a busy […]

Fringe activities #3

August 26, 2013

Well, that’s the last weekend of the 2013 Fringe been and gone. Had a great one, with two excellent de Saw / Finkle shows on Saturday night, played to brilliant audiences (even the one that seemed to think we were a comedy act), and two beautifully experimental stints as a member of the Creative Martyrs’ […]

So, once again, catching up with the Fringe. Feel like I’ve been skimming it this year. Been through a few times, seen a  few things, but not loads. All of what I have seen though has been quality. Last week I was fortunate enough to catch up with Sarah Louise Young and Michael Roulston’s Songs […]

Wow, the Edinburgh Fringe came round all suddenly this year. Before now I would normally have posted about what de Saw and Finkle are up and what I thought was worth seeing if you happen to be at a loose end and looking for things to amuse you. But suddenly we’re a week into the […]

Talking saw

Last October Markee and Bert were invited to take part in GreenerVisuals’ Creativity interview series. Alison and the crew filmed our Glasgow Cabaret performance of Israphel’s Book, and interviewed us about the show, ourselves and cabaret in general. It was rather good fun, and aside from being ample demonstration of why Bert doesn’t get to […]

Score card 2012

Okay, so it’s January, which means, as I sorta promised last year, it’s time to see how I got on with my rather ambitious goals for 2012. In summary I hoped to: Novels: Finish Queen Of Clouds and have started The Poisoner’s Road Shorts: Write and publish 10 short stories Band: Release 2 or 3 […]

Too cabaret!

When was the last time a Gary Barlow song made you laugh? Or made you cry? Or made you laugh and cry, and think at the same time. When was the last time Gary–or indeed anything that represents the mainstream chart pop industry in the last twenty years–gave you anything remotely resembling a good time? I […]

Small Cabaret

I’ve been remiss here in not blaring out in dazzling fanfare that the 2012 Glasgow Cabaret Festival is upon us. I’ve been busy, but no excuses, and I apologise. Hopefully those who follow us on Twitter and Facebook will have heard about the Glasgow showing of Israphel’s Book, the de Saw-Finkle show we performed to […]

Israphel’s Book: Second Chance To See

September 26, 2012

0

If you’ve been paying attention you might remember that we premiered our first long de Saw/Finkle show at the Edinburgh Fringe. It was called Israphel’s Book, and it involves everything you expect from those two: singing, sawing and stitched together stories. Well, thanks to the 2012 Glasgow Cabaret Festival and Glasgay, we’re bringing the show […]

Well I certainly didn’t expect to see that

The last week of the Fringe managed to deliver a few genuine surprises, even to my jaded eye. I like this. It’s one of the things I expect from the Fringe, and had felt somewhat lacking this year. Even burlesque delivered something I’ve never seen before.  Briefly, and in no particular order: A tap dancing penguin, […]
