We met Simon through a mutual friend, the wonderfully glamorous and gorgeous 50ft Woman. He writes an awesome blog covering tonnes of topics including music, books, sports and politics. Simon was one of the first people to buy Wreck and Reel, outside of our immediate circle of friends and he’s reviewed it here:
The Ballad of Eleanor and Bill from Blackheath Halls on May 18.
In December 2011 we lost a dear friend, Andy Ropek. Andy, a fantastic musician in his own right, and promoter for The Icarus Club did so much to support unsigned artists and we will deeply miss him. We were honoured to be asked to play at Blackheath Halls in February, a concert in his memory. You can now purchase a DVD of the night with all proceeds going to charity. We were joined by lots of amazing artists including Bruise, Mishaped Pearls and Benny Gallagher (of Gallagher and Lyle fame). For further information click on the facebook link here
The video was shot by Henry Williams.
Would you like us to come and play you a tune? We require one sofa….big enough for two, not
as payment, merely to park our behinds on.
We will bring you our very own biscuits and we are both fully house trained.
Those lovely people at Recharged Radio have been asked by those lovely people organising The Great Escape festival to curate a day’s worth of lovely music at the Queens Hotel. Recharged have invited lots of lovely people down to play, including Pepper and Shepherd.
Pepper and Shepherd are playing at the Great Escape in May. The day we play is featured in the brand new issue of The Sound of the Suburbs.

We supported Tom Copson and Guido Goh at CB2 in Cambridge (23 March). Tom has an emotionally elastic voice, plays great guitar and had some beautiful violin weaving in and out of his songs, he played a terrific set. Likewise Guido, all the way from Hamburg has a great voice and some beautifully moving songs on piano and sarod!.
Pete Robbins, promoter of Night of the Artisans creates a lovely intimate and warm atmosphere down in the wine cellars at CB2, I highly recommend his night, and radio show to everyone. He took this video of us performing 10 long years:
Been working on a few new songs and this is a rough sketch I worked on this afternoon, so new it’s still awaiting James’ input
