This weekend, Paul Hawkins & the Awkward Silences play two gigs, with an on-stage set-up we’re really excited about that we’ve never used before.
First of all, on Friday we’re playing in South London at Joyzine’s Night of Joy at the Brixton Windmill with Extradition Order, Jack Hayter, James Cheshire and Dexy.
Then on Sunday we’re playing at T Chances in Tottenham. It’s the Catapulte Records festival. Catapulte are a collective of brilliant musicians. There’s several great bands playing and it’s going to be absolutely amazing. And there’s a barbecue.
Both are superb promoters with a fantastic taste in music who really care about what they’re doing and I’d recommend either gig! And if you come to both gigs, we’ll email you some MP3s of new, unreleased Silences’ material that even our friends and families haven’t heard yet.

Both Paul Hawkins & The Awkward Silences and the Count of Chateau Noir have songs on the new compilation album Regal vs Steamboat which is available from Audio Antihero Records and raises money for Rape Crisis.
The compilation also features Jeff Lewis, Darren Hayman, David Cronenberg’s Wife and numerous other ace people and is well worth a listen, quite aside from how important the cause is!
