Our very own Geoff Farina, formerly of Karate and currently of Glorytellers, who have recently released their second album, Atone, on Southern, is touring the UK this week with Chris Brokaw (Codeine/Come and many others). The tour is to launch the release of their first album together - The Angel’s Message To Me out on Damnably on 18th March - coincidentally the same day the tour starts! Nice how things work like that, isn't it?
Geoff and Chris recorded The Angel's Message... as a duo which is coming out on Brokaw’s own (Capitan) label in the States and on Damnably in the UK. The songs are all pre-WWII blues/folk/ragtime songs that they do in their own weird way. You can pre-order the album from Damnably now.
Chris and Geoff will play two sets featuring a magnificent journey through their back catalogues, culminating in their new material for this combined harvest of guitar genius and incredible talent. We are really looking forward to this and highly recommend you grab the rare opportunity to see these two here in the UK.
