The Saint Ishmael tour is going swimmingly. We’ve played four gigs so far and they’ve all been belters. We’re grateful to everyone who’s come out and watched a show, bought a record or had a boogie. Those who’ve done all three are true dukes.

In the coming weeks we’ve got Birmingham [TICKETS] Fri March 8, Sheffield [FACEBOOK EVENT] Friday March 29 and York [TICKETS] Saturday March 30. You can see the April and May dates of the tour on our gigs page.

See you on the road,

This Saturday (August 11) is something truly special. We are very lucky to be the last band to play whilst the Market Vaults, Stafford (spiritual home of DCMI offshoot Taskrz) whilst it us under the management of the wonderful Oli Kendall. Oli has championed original and interesting live music at the Vaults for years now, so we really want to give him an incredible send off. There are bands on throughout the day, so you could come down to the Vaults and make a day of it:

17.00 - Keshanadram

19.30 - Big Joe Bone

21.20 - Don't Call Me Ishmael

See you down there,

Captains of the storm by Jack Tasker

What an amazing weekend! We played two incredible shows, headlining Friday night in Birmingham and then an opening slot at The Underground on Saturday night. Thank you to everyone who bought a ticket and came out on some very wet and cold nights. 

The running project that Gary and JT have started was meant to have its first chapter completed on Sunday morning, but due to the rubbish weather the Stafford Half Marathon has been pushed back to April. However, we did manage to record some documentary interviews that will form the backbone of the film about running and being in a band. 

We are back live on May 1 at The Glebe, Stoke and then Lymelight Festival a few days later. We're starting work on our next batch of songs, with a view to release a single in the next couple of months.

Surviving Storm Ishmael by Jack Tasker

The band were an emotional wreck on Friday. We had members stranded on the mean streets of Kings Heath, others carrying all their gear on the train and a saviour in the very likely shape of Adrian Tasker who battled the elements to get two of the band to Congelton Unplugged. Our gig for the festival was great, a tight blast through two 45 minute sets of our acoustic tunes. 

Stressful start aside this weekend was a high point for the band. Throughout Saturday we wrote and demo'd new material - including the blistering 'Blood is Thicker', which will be released as single in the coming months. In the evening we played a packed show at the Market Vaults, with support from the king of Stoke-on-Trent Merrym'n

Saturday's gig was amazing and we're really thankful for all those who braved the rubbish weather to come and listen to us. We hope you enjoyed it? 

Next stop is a headline slot in Birmingham on Friday 16 March at the Victoria (TICKETS) and then the day after we're at The Underground in Stoke (TICKETS).

Come down to either of these if you can.

Coming to a harbour near you... by Jack Tasker

dcmigiglist

Spring 2018 is looking like a mighty season for all of us on the good ship Ishmael. We have four gigs in March and our annual practice / song writing session. So expect some new material in our set list. 

We're covering some decent ground across the middle of the country during this string of dates. If you're in Birmingham then please come to our gig at The Victoria on Friday 16 March (tickets.) For Stoke / Stafford people there's plenty to pick from, why not come to all of them? 

We're very excited to get back out there. See you on the road...or seas...the metaphors get a little mixed.
