There’s a new Doozer blog.
Check it here.

Me and The Doozer had a little discussion last night about how I was credited on this fine record.
Surely the only time I will be thanked for taking care of the bass chores on an album.
Anyway Simon, I was right innit?
(he has promised to credit me in full for lending him my Eastern Bloc drum synth pedal for the new LP on Sloowax. After all, it’s not like my name’s Lamonte or some shit).

The Portland Arms
A celebration of 3 albums released by labels Bo’Weavil, Pickled Egg & Gagarin Records for C Joynes, The Doozer and Um respectively.
Each will perform a set as well as DJing tunes, in a night of hallucinatory guitar movings and pop inflicted experimentalism. They’ve been in their furrow, come join them.
C JOYNES see’s highly respected London based label Bo’Weavil recordings release his 2nd album (previously privately pressed on limited edition cdr) ‘God Feeds the Ravens’. Joynes plays guitar music in the post-Takoma tradition. He always maintains a distinct Englishness to his sound, as shown by his self-penned footnote ‘Anglo-Naïve And Contemporary Parlour Guitar’.
THE DOOZER see’s his debut album released by Pickled Egg Records (home to Daniel Johnston, Scatter etc). He recently toured the UK for 2 weeks with MV&EE (Ecstatic Peace) and formed part of The Golden Road. He write folk tales and hallucinations from the Mill Road area with wider eyes on gathering grounds.
UM needs no introduction round these parts, a singular entity who produces the most sublime experimental, unique and in some cases downright ‘pop’ classics. He sees some of his 4000 odd songs released on Felix Kubin’s label Gagarin.
Please come if you can. Latest indications are that I may actually have an album to launch at the album launch, which I think would be a real bonus conceptually, although of course it’s all grist.
