A nice mention in Hot Press (and a comparison to the Beta Band!)

Here it is:

“Making Spotify waves with his debut self-titled solo album is backinhumanform, the Mayo Artist Also Known As Joe Clarke who’s now residing in the London borough of Bow.

Formerly lead singer with Manchester band Adventures Of Salvador, he’s been variously compared to Beck, Midlake, Mazzy Star, John Cale and (by us) the Beta Band in their more chilled moments, and in ‘Auld Lang Xiety’ has a song that would sit very comfortably with all the other quality Irish music RTÉ Radio One is playing these days.”

Appearance at King’s Fest, King’s Arms in Salford, on Sept 18th

I’ve been confirmed for this show. Tickets £15 for a three day festival of music and comedy. The King’s Arms is owned and run by Paul Heaton, of The Housemartins and The Beautiful South. It’s my third time playing this festival – the first time was as singer with Adventures of Salvador – and I’m really looking forward to it. I’m on in the snug, downstairs, at 3:30.
