New Line Up

Earlier this year both Seb Kellig and David Preston announced their departure from MDH to concentrate on other projects. Tim has now put together a completely new line-up featuring Harry Stam (also of The Pacers) on bass and Tony Coote (also Cat Black, PP Arnold,) on drums.

A new page has also been added to this site entitled Timstuff where you can view other solo projects including his 2006 play ‘How To Pick Up Girls’ a couple of podcasts, some animations and a trailer for a short documentary on recording his translation of Jacques Brel’s Next/Au Suivant.


Tim Briffa will be playing a solo set on Wed 21 Aug at Studio 9294, 92-94 Wallis Road, E9 5LN London, before a talk by legendary Granny Takes A Trip and Hapshash and The Coloured Coat designer Nigel Waymouth. Followed by sets from The Confederate Dead and The Pacers. Should be a very cool night.

Details, tickets etc available here.

MDH are currently waiting on gigs to be confirmed. In the meantime here are some photos from the recent Star Shaped Festival at the Brixton Academy. (pics by and thanks to Mati White and Herman Pawellek.)
