Rachel McClean, Matt Wood and Dan Wright (The Most Ugly Child) all did sets and Phil Grafton brought along fellow Sea Monster Eyes guitarist Geoff Carlin for a hilarious bout of crazy tunes and self-heckling.
We. Had. A. Blast. The event runs every week at is highly recommended.
I’ve been writing a song with Phil from Sea Monster Eyes. Today we started recording it, using a borrowed acoustic that’s worth more than all my other guitars put together. I got to hear rough mixes of SME’s upcoming album (it’s awesome) too. And Phil is the only person I know who owns an oil painting of himself.
Phil Grafton is the bassist in indie/rock band Tastebuds. I taught Phil for a few years. His band were runners up in the 2011 Future Sound Of Nottingham Competition and their debut album Tastebuds and EP Cage The Bird are available on iTunes (you can also get the EP on Amazon). Phil also runs a regular open mic night in Sutton in Ashfield.
