Tommy Concrete and the Werewolves live at Ivory Blacks in Glasgow for the Burnt Supper Burns Night, January 2015

Beyond the Secret Island and Fucked by Werewolves, given the live treatment at Ivory Blacks in Glasgow at the Burns Night gig we did. Great fun was had by all.

Here is Lesbian Sexual Predator, Your Dads a Cunt and Wolf Lord Has No Mercy. First gig since having my trem system fixed on my guitar, so I am whamming it like a new toy, as you should.

A bit of Clarity of Insanity for you all to behold. Nine times out of ten I fuck the solo up, thankfully the time it gets filmed is the one time out of ten I don't make a pigs ear out of it.

Four more songs from the night... Fucked by Werewolves, Werewolf Justice, Transmogrify & Consumed by Burrowing Mites.

Tommy Concrete and the Werewolves live at Studio 24 Edinburgh November 2014 album launch for This Can't Get Any Worse

It's always nice to have a gigantic intimidating skinhead in a Status Quo Blue for You shirt playing a solo on a beer bottle as you play your guitar. If this is an experience you are not familiar with then I suggest you try it out immediately. This was quite good, more often than not the wha-wha pedal controls your own facial expressions, occasionally it controls the facial expressions of audience members. In this instance, the wha-wha pedal was in charge of us both. In case you didn't already know, this particular old-school giant is Matt who plays bass for Mastiff and Shitball.

Tommy Concrete and the Werewolves live at Bannermans Bar Edinburgh April 2014.

This was a very well photographed show, with pictures by Gabby Stone, Alan Swan & Gary Cooper. All three of whom are great photographers. Shame I had a fucking stupid moustache for it, but what the fuck I have looked much stupider before and no doubt will again.

Tommy Concrete and the Werewolves live at Bannermans Bar Edinburgh Feb 2014



This gig was one of the few gigs we did with the two guitar line up and the last one with Chris on bass, although we didn't know that at the time. So perhaps these pictures are historic to those of you who are interested in that sort of thing.

Recording 'Trawler Tales'

In December 2013 I found myself recording a new solo EP, in one very stressed out seventeen hour session at Mountain Sound Recording Studios in Hull, produced by Paddy Tobin. The whole thing was written, recorded and mixed on the spot. I had no equipment of my own with me and just used the studios interesting and unique collection of weird old valve amps and guitars that I really wasn't used to. The whole thing was very interesting and I am pretty happy with what I came out with.

I'd never even played a baritone guitar before and totally fell in love with it, all the songs were written on this, these are a couple of the fucked up old valve combos that I used for everything, really really nice sounding even though I couldn't get them to distort! I let the equipment lead me as to what the music should sound like.
