Out Now!

Disarmingly Charming LP/CD

Our new album is available on CD and limited edition gatefold 180g vinyl from our Bandcamp page, plus we have a small number of Tote bags for sale on there too, featuring the phantasmagorical artwork for the album by Adam Cavill!

Stephen and I are overjoyed to be able to tell you that we have welcomed Tobie Chandler back into the Mechanical Cabaret fold. It's been 12 years since he played with us, before Stephen joined in fact, and we're looking forward to experiencing his sublime audio-mangling contributions once again.

Have a fabulously festive frolic this season, happy Winter Solstice to all, and see you in 2020 for more fun and games...


Roi, Stephen and Tobie

Our new album Disarmingly Charming has now finally been mixed! Next week Stephen and I will take to his studio in Harrow, London, to complete the mastering process, whilst Adam Cavill works on the artwork for it. We hope to get it released within the next couple of months, all being well... plus I'm putting together a book of all my lyrics from the past two decades since I began Mechanical Cabaret, which I am aiming at making available this spring. Lastly, my next DJ session is on Saturday 23rd March at my regular haunt The Woodman in Highgate, from 8 til late... and we now have a new mailing list, so please add your email to it below!





Also, I will be DJing at various locations in the UK and in Europe over the coming year, including frequent sessions at The Woodman in Highgate, London. My next DJ date is in Berlin on Sat 12th January at 'A Night Like This' in Eschschloraque, Rosenthalerstr. HH 39, 10178, Berlin.
