26 april 2011 : trompe le monde in spain / strings in northern europe / australia
this is what i got in my inbox this morning
micah is back touring spain with his spanish band tachenko during july and for this special tour micah has elected to play the landmark pixies album -trompe le monde- in its entirety ... that record was a huge influence on micah and remains so ... each gig will be a unique experience and im sure your only chance to hear micah tear up those amazing pixies songs with a full band roaring out from behind him ... you wont get to hear this ever again ... rumour has it tachenko can blow the real pixies off the stage these days ... in contrast the shows in mid-may in belgium and holland will feature a string quartet and will run through all of micahs recorded output from the gospel to the pioneer saboteurs by way of his obscure eps and early demos ... these shows are going to go down in history - the quartet sound amazing ... there is also an australian tour booked for end june / start of july awaiting cities and venues ... this has been a long time in the planning and is a direct response to micahs fans in australia petitioning for shows out that way ... i am due to speak to micah again this week - obviously he is working like a brakeman at the moment - and hoping to have some info on his second novel ... and some other projects he is working up ... i can report he is happy and well and heres a photo of ashley from may last year

after a long cold spell on the micah p. hinson front, i heard from him over the weekend. he/s in good shape, and has announced a few uk dates with those crazy old mountain goats... thanks to the great people over at pineapple folk... so far, all i know is the where and the when, and that these are mostly solo shows which to be honest is how the guy often needs to be seen, in the raw. i heard there may be a cellist at one of the shows, unconfirmed. as i hear more i/ll post it, otherwise - be strong... oh yeah, the london show is almost sold out!
date: 29th august 2007, time: 18.06

news in from micah p. hinson... after having cancelled some recent shows in europe micah has some local gigs lined up in austin dallas and ft. worth over the next few weeks. word is we can expect to see the gig list start to grow again as micah gets his back stronger. it simply hasnt been possible for him to make any long-haul flights over the summer... micah also tells me he has a lot of new material together that is in a reasonable state of completion, both for micah/s next full-length album and his contributions to the amazing and just downright beautiful late cord project... we/re trying to work out the best way of releasing a track or two of some of the new material... who knows.
date: 11th july 2007, time: 06.41
i/ve just heard that due to ill health micah has had to cancel all his planned gigs up until the end of september. micah/s doctor has confined him to his house in austin due to a chronic back ailment that was worsening, this was also the cause of the missed shows last month. he said he/d get back to me soon with some more info on what to expect for the autumn/fall, but the next gigs that hold are the late september spanish shows for the legendary guys at houston party.
date: 3rd july 2007, time: 23.45

date: 20th june 2007, time: 18.56

heavy word just got in from micah, the below update on what is going on in his world.
date: 13th june 2007, time: 21.53
ive been hearing murmurings of a new record for a while now... not the new ep (a dream of her) but the next full-length micah p. hinson lp and follow up to the opera circuit. micah checked in this evening and tipped me off that he has 17 new songs recorded. hes kitted out his new place in austin with everything he needs to record... studio, booth, trap set, he even has an upright piano and rumour has it that he sawed off part of his kitchen counter to get the thing through into the lounge... Amendments made to some of the live page listings specifically to correct the benicassim date (thanks to the lovely benicassim people), we/re now trying to put together a comprehensive itinerary for the coming months, there are more gigs on the way as soon as we get final confirms.
date: 9th june 2007, time: 11.37
word. micahs taking it easy at the moment, having moved to austin, tx and sorting out a few things back there, there are some local shows planned in the austin metropolitan area so keep one eye on here and one on the local press if youre around there... what else is new? i/m compiling a faq section as a lot of people have emailed in to ask about mph and the general level of myth and legend that surrounds him... still working on the mailing list and message board ideas also... it will all get done in time.
date: 31st may 2007, time: 22.13
word. micah is planning a special event in manchester, uk, for early august. a as-yet-undisclosed venue has been provisionally booked over the 7th 8th and 9th august for 3 special performances of micahs first 3 records... the gospel of progress... the baby and the satellite... and the opera circuit. each of the records will be performed in their entirety by the original studio players. these will be rare shows, in a small intimate venue. by then the uk smoking ban will have kicked in, which, while it isnt going to bother me very much as i can take them or leave them, will probably mean an intermission will be required while micah chainsmokes 20 minutes. it is sure to be a beautiful series of gigs...
date: 29th may 2007, time: 20.25
word in from micah, a poem, remarkable if only because it features micah/s first ever recorded use of capital letters... have some of the artwork through for the new ep: a dream of her, in the gallery and updated the studio page with thanks to the legendary ger potze who had contributed to the discography in the past, on the old site, before, and i dont think anybody asked him, or thanked him either... also, there is a very special micah event being organised over the summer in manchester, uk, finalised details coming soon enough.
date: 26th may 2007, time: 23.40
fledgeling gallery added, mostly photos by paul heartfield.
date: 26th may 2007, time: 21.07
micah is confirmed for the uk end of the road festival in september, see live page. he/s sent me a few lines, word... we/re split down the middle on the message board idea based on recent and tawdry history, i think he needs convincing that there are millions of people out there that love him, you know what i/m saying? the new ep is out pretty much anytime soon, the artwork should be up when we get a gallery together, and i/m all over the thing...
date: 25th may 2007, time: 09.41
further shows added over the summer... awaiting details of full tour later in the year.
date: 23rd may 2007, time: 23.07
added some links to the site... this news just now in from micah, word up... he/s had to leave the uk for texas to attend to a pressing family matter... this means that unfortunately micah will be unable to perform at the julian cope show in dublin on 24th may he sends his apologies and will be back out that way to make up for it all as soon as the storm has passed... micahs myspace page, the subject of much recent controversy, will be closed down over the next few days, hopefully the site here, where you are now, in reading this, will start to function as a focal point for keeping tabs on him... if in fact anybody can. see micah/s note on this, word...
date: 21st may 2007, time: 12.13
additional live/tour dates added and micah has put something together in his own words, from the heart, actually from his myspace page, which has had a lot of attention recently, for good or for ill... micahs in the uk right now, playing some shows around the place and working on an incredible movie by two incredible people called karni+saul, who made the video for micahs beneath the rose single a few short years back, which has won several awards, and actually reduced me to tears the second time i watched it... if you can track it down, and i/m sure it exists out there, do so...
