Struggle With Purpose

This is the show I made for the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. I performed it every day from the 5th to the 26th of August and again in Glasgow on the 18th of January 2018. On the 31st of March 2018 I released an EP of some of the Glasgow performance, which you can listen to below and download here.

This was the setlist:

1. Unserious Dissident of the Avant-garde
2. Affordable Vintage Existence
3. omm
4. Cum on the Carpet
5. We Are Snowing
6. Blow It
7. 17 Hours
8. I Am Letting Them Grow
9. His(s)


Unserious Dissident…, Blow It, and I Am Letting Them Grow will all probably go on the mixtape thing I’ve been intermittently working on for ages, although they’ll take very different forms.

We Are Snowing and His(s) are both from my first album, The First Small Steps to Tragedy, but I completely changed all of the music for His(s) and also altered the lyrics slightly.

Cum on the Carpet (a standalone track I completed in 2015) and omm (a song with music by Harry Gorski-Brown recorded for his band, Oxtered to the Bothy’s debut album) were performed without any musical accompaniment.
