This is something we’ve been very much looking forward to sharing with you.

Andrew Bishop decided to record our live performance at Clwb Ifor Bach and I currently mixing the whole show to release as a live album.

Here is a single release for now of ‘Caffeine Overdose’.

We are also playing Clwb again later this month. You can grab your tickets via this link – KW at Clwb 29-04-22

Time to reflect on 2021.

It was no doubt a stuttered year for so many artists. Lock down was very much in place for the majority of the year but despite all of that we are grateful for the opportunities we had to get some things done.

One of the biggest highlights for us as a band was our livestream performance. It was a joy to share a live performance in the midst of lockdown.

Then we took that show live to an audience in our hometown in Cardiff and I think it is the best we have ever played. The relief to play in front of an audience again was huge and the entire night was an exhilarating experience that we can’t wait to do again! Despite living in a digital age, nothing can replace the quality of being in a live performance space with an audience.

We recorded the audio from the desk and will be putting a selection of the tracks on our soundcloud soon.

The plan going forward. We have a full set ready to go and ready to take it out, live shows tbc. We are also writing loads of new material and planning another live video as well, so plenty of things are in place for us as a band in 2022. Unfortunately, the virus is running amok again and disrupting Christmas for many. Our thoughts to anyone reading this who has been affected.

We wish everyone health and peace of mind going forward. Nadolig Llawen.

Ryan, Miff and Jiff.

We returned to the live scene last Friday with a hometown headline show at Clwb Ifor Bach.

We could not have asked for a more enthusiastic and supportive audience and we were quite literally overwhelmed by the support of those who came along.

It is very much on our agenda to plan future shows around different regions in the U.K. and you can follow us here to keep up to date as we announce them.

In the meantime, here are some photos courtesy of Adam Prosser as well as the set list from the gig. Our encore was ‘Stomp Foot Syndrome’.

A big thank you to our support acts, King Curelean and Tobias Robertson, and Andrew Bishop for doing the sound for the evening.

We are thrilled to share with you the news that we will be doing a live premier for our ‘Kinky Wizzards – Live at Ratio Studios’ on Thursday 24th June.

After being unable to play live for such a long period of time, it was an absolute joy to get into a space together to record a live set that we can share with you. It’s the next best thing to us being in an actual venue together during these times.

The set was recorded through once, so the footage is a real and raw live performance…no corrections, no overdubs, nada!

The video will be available to watch for free from YouTube and Vimeo (links will be posted here) but we would like to point you in the direction of ways you can support us and causes we are behind.

1. If you enjoy the live music, you can buy copies of our CDs over at https://kinkywizzards.bandcamp.com/

2. If you also enjoyed the set and want to help us in our next musical endeavours you can also buy us a coffee over at https://ko-fi.com/kwriffmiffjiff3

3. This last year and a half has impacted so many people in a negative way and we want to use this event as an opportunity to encourage donations to charity organisations who are doing good work to help those in need. Here are some useful links.

Unicef – Help protect families in India https://www.unicef.org.uk/

UK Mental Health Foundation https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/donate…

We look forward to seeing you for the premier next Thursday.

Warmest regards from Wales,

I thought it would be a good idea to put together a score of one of our tunes from the latest album.

It took me absolutely ages to put this together and figuring what the hell the brothers were doing let alone myself in written notation was a head spinner! There are probably some discrepancies here and there, and the drums especially are more of a guide as there’s an improvisatory nature to them. I also provided a brass arrangement for a trio of horns that feature as well. It was however very rewarding to see the music in written form and I though I’d share it with you.

There is something very aesthetically pleasing about it and I may put together a book with all of the tracks notated one day.
