So what might make you travel to Tufnell Park on a dark Tuesday in November? Well the very excellent Rob Corcoran as his special guest and legendary Dan Grigson spinning some choice vinyl for a start.
As for the man himself, the irony of Ger Lane playing at Aces and Eights has not been lost on him. All puns aside, it’s cards on the table time. “Heal thyself Songman!” is a show that brings him back to the stage in a solo capacity from the studio wilds with the upcoming single “The New Revolution in Love”, the first recorded offering from that difficult wilderness. An ace in his pocket? Well let’s just hold onto that poker face time for now.The HTS theme originates from his inarticulate attempt to find words to this new single’s expansive and inspiring music leading, in turn, to new revelations about music making and its place in his life and refreshing his somewhat ambivalent attitude of the one man and guitar experience to one of celebration and playfulness. Necessity really is the mother of all invention, isn't it?
