This blog and the blogosphere in general has suffered some neglect recently as all my focus has been on tonight's gig in The Grand Social in Dublin. Somewhat more activity may start taking place next week...

It will the first Dublin gig in twenty years for The Knocking Shop and at the moment my nerves are making it feel a bit like Poe's The Pit and the Pendulum but I'm sure it'll be a great night.

There's an event page on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/events/1045545818885717/

and you can like the band page here - https://www.facebook.com/knockingshop/

Here's one of the songs we'll be playing, taken from our comeback gig in January in London. Hope some readers will make it along..


  1. A much-belated but hearty congrats on hitting the stage for the first time in Dublin in 20 years. I bet that was unbelievably exciting and rewarding for you guys.

    Your fan from California,

    1. Thanks Enrique. It was a blast, even if a rather nervous blast and we hope to do it again soon.
