He's collaborated with an astounding number of artists over the years, including Camper Van Beethoven, John Zorn, Henry Kaiser, and Jimmy Carl Black. In addition to his solo efforts and collaborations, he also led the band Shockabilly in the 80s.
He'll be performing with Andrew Cheetham. Andrew is a percussionist from Standish, Lancashire based in Manchester since 2004 with a special interest in improvisation. Appearing numerous releases with free rock group Desmadrados Soldados de Ventura and offshoot duo Yerba Mansa. He plays and tours regularly with Irma Vep and has performed one-off gigs with Rhys Chatham, Damo Suzuki and others.
Caroline Mary sings songs of animals, alcohol and agnosticism. Mostly allegorical her songs draw you in to a world inhabited by invisible horses, rampant octopi and a selection of metaphorical rodents. Accompanied mainly by guitar her songs are not genre specific but hint at folk, country and pop whilst exploring themes of desire, death and debauchery. This tour Caroline Mary leaves home to perform songs from an unknown future album and includes a few favourites from her debut “A Tray of Fancies”. With mesmorizing and dreamy softness Caroline Mary’s voice and words will move and amuse you in equal measure.
