we haven't gone away.
just locked in our gloomy sheds creating works of genius,
whiles the sunshine burns away unnoticed out in the real world.
We will be back soon with a new book,
album, film and backdrop
and news of late summer gigs.
in the meantime...here is a great photo of us
performing at the Portico Hall last March.

Liver & Lights No 56.
One Shoe Michael.
One Shoe Michael.
The New paperback is here!!
There has been a slight change of plan!
When subscribing, you might have imagined you were getting a copy
of something entitled Liver & Lights No 57, as announced…
On reflection, I have come to believe that the whole One Shoe Mickey
project should come under the umbrella heading of
including the enclosed paperback containing the complete song cycle
and all Mickey’s paintings of lost gloves collected from the streets of London.
L&L 56 also includes the handmade Verbfoot Jack hardback published
in May and It will eventually encompass an album of new songs by
Bonesandtheaft with music inspired by One Shoe Mickeys’s words
by Ian Mckean
with assistance from
Bird Radio and Lord Biscuit.
it will also include, eventually, Chiara Ambrosio’s film-in-progress…
If you havent seen the recently released excerpt yet, you can watch it here:
Incidentally....if you want a copy its £12.00 including postage...
send me the cash via paypal and I'll post one to you:
Hope thats all clear!
Love JB x
