Here’s a preview of the new Dog Moon Howl E.P. These Days – the title track with a lo-fi video we knocked together out of some rehearsal footage. Enjoy!
The Craig Hughes Two will be releasing a mini-album, Off The Cuff, culled from a live-in-the-studio session we recorded late last year. The tracks are a mixture of live regulars from m’back catalogue now performed with significantly different duo-arrangements, and a couple of cover versions. We’re just waiting to get the licensing sorted out for the covers so we can decide on a release date – it will be available on CD and download; tape release TBC. Update to follow once everything’s in place.
Dog Moon Howl will also soon be releasing the new EP, These Days – head on over to www.dogmoonhowl.com for more on that one.
One way or another, this is going to be a very busy year, for me at least. Got to get my tax return done for a start.
After that, the next few months will see new EPs from both The Craig Hughes Two and Dog Moon Howl (more news on them very soon). I’m looking into organising a series of self-promoted gigs, possibly marking the return of the old That Devil Music night. Limited edition runs of “hand stamped” CDs and tapes of my back catalogue are in the works. The websites (this one, Dog Moon Howl and Channel Nowhere) will be back in full working order and there will be regular updates over at the Ritual Objects blog.
Other stuff will also happen.
Dog Moon Howl supports Sky Valley Mistress on the Scottish leg of their current UK tour this Friday and Saturday.
Friday 9th December: Bannermans, Edinburgh with additional support from The Motion Poets. Doors 8pm, Dog Moon Howl onstage @ 9:15pm.
Saturday 10th December: Nice’N’Sleazy, Glasgow with additional support from The Naked Feedback. Doors 7:30pm, Dog Moon Howl onstage @ 8:15pm.
Bit of a last minute outing but these look to be a couple of cracking nights – and our last live dates for 2016 – so we hope to see some of you there!

I was in the studio with Ally Tennick last Saturday recording a live-in-the-studio session for an EP release in the new year. Knob-twiddling was by Tommy Duffin.
We played seven songs from some previous releases which have changed shape somewhat over the years on the live circuit – particularly as arranged for the duo – plus a couple of covers. The initial mixes are sounding good and I’ll be sifting through them as I get them over the next few days, settling on the best takes.
Watch this space for further details.
Dog Moon Howl has been in the studio recording a new EP. Final mixes and mastering will be completed over the coming week – release details to follow.
In the meantime we’ll be opening for Lacertilia and Cybernetic Witch Cult on the Edinburgh stop of their Wizards ‘n’ Lizards UK tour. The gig’s at Opium on October 27th, 8pm.
I’m playing GGI Glasgow with Dog Moon Howl this weekend:
GGI Glasgow 2016 is a two day event running at Ivory Black’s on Sat/Sun 24th-25th of September. Nineteen bands across two days/nights with DJing to take each night into the wee small hours. Dog Moon Howl will be playing on Sunday evening alongside the likes of Constant Fear, Decibel Freaks and Hateful.
Hope to see some of you there! For full details on the festival check out the GGI Facebook page HERE.

“… well, it happens to us all. Great big hard drive crash. Months/years of work lost, as well as applications and so on. Channel Nowhere’s websites have all fallen victim to local storage hell, so please bear with us as we try to clone a sow from the devil’s own silk purse.”
Check back for updates. Gig and recording news coming soon.
