2021 FTW! Back on the Road to Joy


At the risk of sounding like every broken record of 2020, the handful of live Jim Bob shows planned for the end of this year (this week and next week) aren’t going ahead as planned. The GOOD NEWS is that after a lot of logistical shuffling behind the scenes, the dates have finally been rearranged for next year. Also, the handful has been extended to three handfuls

It’s a tour! 2021 For the Win! Back on the road to joy. Kicking 2020 in the dick! If ever there was a time for exclamation marks it’s now !! 

The tour starts in Cambridge on the 4th November and ends in London on the 20th at the Brixton Electric. It used to be called The Fridge. I last played there in 1990 with Carter. That was the night the venue manager asked whether our stage backdrop was fireproof and we said yes and the venue manager took out his lighter and set fire to it

I’ve been desperate to play some of the songs from my chart smash album ‘Pop Up Jim Bob’ live. The Hoodrats will be with me to make sure that happens in spades. Maybe there’ll be songs from another new album too. I’m recording demos right now. And of course, what would a triumphant return to celebratory normality be without a big fuck off singalong of Carter songs. 2021 is the 30th anniversary of ‘30 Something’. Maybe I’ll play the whole album. Three hour set anyone?
