The Road to Loose Ends

Things have been pretty quiet in Pocketwatch land for a while, what with a number of things (including Will’s ulnar nerve operation). The operation went well, and we’ve begun to plan our comeback… So, what’s the grand plan, I hear you ask? Glastonbury? The Brixton Academy? A 30 date stadium tour? No. We have simple […]

Instrumental Sneak Peek…

Things have been a little quiet at Pockewatch HQ recently, but rest assured we are working and plotting… Here’s a little sneak peak of some recording we’ve been doing: Instrumental is an old favourite of ours that we don’t tend to play that often in shows. We’re excited that it (and others) are going to […]

Pocketwatch cover TOTO’s ‘Africa’

We thought we’d immortalise our cover of TOTO’s indescribably wonderful song, Africa, in film. Here it is, folks! Our sincere thanks go to Martin Cutbill, film-maker and editor extraordinaire.

Oxford gig with The Mechanisms

When The Mechanisms invited us to share a gig with them in Oxford we jumped at the chance. They’re a dissolute bunch of rascals, but we figured we could trust them. The day arrived and it was, as I might have predicted, rather damp and dull (I have never visited Oxford without rain, so I see no […]

After the Asylum

Well, what a weekend! I think we just played two of the best and most enjoyable gigs we’ve ever done. Saturday at the Asylum felt quite different from Friday last year, and I was (as always) blown away by so many of the costumes on display. We had been booked to play two gigs – one […]
