On Saturday 25 August Glenn Tilbrook is playing at City In The Park, Nottingham. Glenn should be on stage at around 3.45pm though this is, as always, subject to change.
Nick Harper has an extra show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival on Saturday 11 Aug. He has been invited to play at the "Pick Of The Fringe" at the Pleasance Dome (Dome/room 1) along with 6 other acts from 1.00 - 2.30pm.
Read the review of last Sunday's show that appeared in the Scottish Herald.
The office will be closed from 10 - 14 Aug, so no CD or T-shirt orders will be processed during this time.
Nick is already making a huge impression at the Edinburgh Festival. He has been voted by ordinary festival goers into the top ten acts to see on the official Fringe website, you can rate his performance there. Remember to select the rating BEFORE you hit "RATE IT" - you can only vote once. View the results of the pole on their home page.
A very full review of The Incomplete Glenn Tilbrook can be found on the popmatters web site. And to give an example of what happens when Tilbrook is unleashed Live in Iota, check the Washington Post.
A few very kind people have offered to help get folks along to Nick Harper's shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. If anyone else fancies giving us a hand, and you think you'd be good at persuading perfect strangers that you meet along the way to 'experience' Nick, then all you have to do is grab a handful of flyers from the venue - ask for Jessica or Lisa. Southside (venue 82), 117 Nicolson St, Edinburgh. Box Office 0131 667 2212. Here's a map to see exactly where the venue is. Please leave your name (and email if you wish) so that we know who you are!

SEPT 2001 Dates with Roy Harper
Glenn Tilbrook will be making a special guest appearance with Dan Glendining (his guitarist from The Party and previously of Headswim) at Ocean in Hackney, London this Sat 9 June.
The Offices of Quixotic Records will be closed until the 5 June (mini holiday!), CD orders will not be dealt with until then.
Glenn Tilbrook And The Party are playing at The Fleadh on June 16 at 3.40pm though this is subject to change.
The Postal strike is now over and most people who ordered Cds before the 21 May and confirmed should have received them. However Royal Mail have advised us that it may take a few days for everything to get through as they have quite a back log of post to deal with.
Please note that there is a postal strike at the moment in the UK which will no doubt delay delivery of orders. Obviously there's not much we can do so please be patient. Thank you. We will announce when it finishes here.

Glenn will be appearing live on London Today (ITV London Television) tomorrow (Thursday), possibly repeating on London Tonight in the evening.

Glenn is on The Kelly Show On UTV (which is Ulster Television in Northern Ireland) at 8.30pm live on Friday night.

  • Glenn recorded an interview with Andy Peebles which airs tonight at 11pm on the following BBC Radio stations NEWCASTLE, CLEVELAND, YORK, HUMBERSIDE, LEEDS, SHEFFEILD, GMR, MERSEYSIDE, LANCASHIRE AND CUMBRIA.
  • Glenn has been confirmed for BBC Radio London Live's Robert Elms Show on Tuesday 22nd May. Time now confirmed to be on air at around 11.15am.
You can get tickets for Nick Harper's 'HarperSpatial Awareness' Shows Thursday 12, Friday 13 and Saturday 14 July direct from nick's page at Ticketmaster. Click here for more information about the shows.


  • Glenn Tilbrook And The Party will perform acoustically on the Janice Long Show on Radio 2 for the night of 17th May (going into the morning of 18th).
  • The Liverpool Echo will have an interview with Glenn on Friday 18th May. Keep your eyes peeled in your local and national press for other snippets, interviews and features. We will try to let you know what's coming up but it's not always possible to know when things will appear.
  • Glenn has been confirmed for London Live's Robert Elms Show on Tuesday 22nd May.
  • Radio 2 is covering The Fleadh on June 16 - which will feature Glenn Tilbrook And The Party - details to come.
  • Question Of Pop is being transmitted now on the 19 May, this weekend.


THE BAD NEWS: Apologies but unfortunately, due to the production problems, we now know that we will not be able to deliver 'The Incomplete Glenn Tilbrook' to people by the 21 May as previously advertised. There is still a chance that you will receive it by then if you are in the UK, but anywhere outside the UK will receive it (at least) by release date which is now the 28 May. Sadly, this also means that it will not be available at the shows until Friday 18 at Newcastle.

From now on, if you order a mixture of CDs, they will be sent at the same time. i.e. if you ordered 'The Incomplete Glenn Tilbrook' and 'Harperspace', we will wait until 'The Incomplete GT' is available and send them together.

THE GOOD NEWS: When they finally arrive, there is a free bonus CD with 9 of the tracks from the album recorded acoustically! Only for a limited run. EVERYBODY gets one of these no matter where you buy it - ie from this website, at gigs or in the shops - until they run out of course.

Nick Harper's show at the Gladstone in Nottingham on Saturday 19 May has now SOLD OUT. Full tour dates.

The Line up for Glenn Tilbrook and The Party is:

Glenn Tilbrook on guitar and vocals
Andy Metcalfe on bass guitar and backing vocals
Dan Glendining on guitar and backing vocals
Steven Large on keyboards
Simon Hanson on drums

The release date for 'The Incomplete Glenn Tilbrook' has been put back one week due to production problems and will now be released on the 28 May in the UK. In the USA it will be on Quixotic London, distributed through W.A.R.?. Details of release date in the USA to follow. If you have ordered the album from this site, we will do our very best to have The Incomplete GT in your paws on the 21 May as promised.
Lyrics for Glenn's new single 'This Is Where You Ain't' and the (recipe!)song 'Sunday Breakfast Treat' have been added. Try making it this weekend. It's yummy! Just click here then click lyrics. Also the lyric from 'We Went Thataway' from the new album, 'The Incomplete Glenn Tilbrook'.
The new issue of Uncut magazine is out now. It has a piece inside on Glenn Tilbrook and also a song (We Went Thataway) from the new album, 'The Incomplete Glenn Tilbrook' on the CD that comes with the magazine.
Unfortunately due to circumstances out of our control we have had to cancel Nick Harper's IRISH tour dates. New dates will be announced soon.
Nick Harper's tour starts today. If you haven't seen him live yet and want to know what all the fuss is about - GET TO A SHOW!
  • Glenn Tilbrook has been confirmed as the next guest in an ongoing series of events hosted by Uncut at Borders bookshop in London's Oxford Street, where he will be playing a short solo set on Friday 4 May. Admission is free. Borders is at 203-207 Oxford Street, London W1 1AH at 6.30pm.
  • Transmission for the series 'A Question of Pop' has moved back 1 week which means Glenn's appearance as a panalist on the Show will be on 16 June instead of 9 June.
  • Glenn Tilbrook is Live on Radio 5 The Fiona Porter Show at 2.45pm tomorrow, Wednesday 18 April.
  • On Saturday 21 April he is set to reappear on Radio 2's Jonathan Ross show which this week is hosted by Mark Lamarr in Jonathan's absence. Glenn should be live on air sometime between 12.30 and 1.30 pm, though this could change.

Nick Harper is planning his most ambitious project yet. As his role as a sound technician has grown in the production of his recordings he has become aware of new and innovative ways of using sound. Boring old stereo is out as Nick intends using surround sound techniques in a live setting. Songs such as 'Roomspin' and 'Aeroplane' from 'Harperspace' are tailor made for the unique possibilities of surround sound and tickets are likely to be in short supply. The 3 London concerts in July will also be filmed and released on DVD with surround sound which will give fans a chance to see, hear and be part of an exciting summation of his career.
  • Two extra dates have added to the end of Glenn Tilbrook's acoustic shows.
  • Pre- release copies of the new album 'The Incomplete Glenn Tilbrook' will be available on 'The Incomplete Tour' from Sunday 13 May.
Four dates in Ireland have been added at the end of Nick Harper's 'HarperSpace Odyssey 2001 Tour' in May.

Glenn Tilbrook's long awaited debut solo album 'The Incomplete Glenn Tilbrook' will be released on Monday 21 May around the UK and simultaneously in the USA. Order your copy anytime between now and the 14 May from our CD order page and have it delivered to you on the release date!

These are the dates for May when Glenn will be touring with his brand spanking new band, 'Glenn Tilbrook And The Party'. The line up is a closely guarded secret but you can expect some top talent to make Glenn's new songs groove. Scroll down the page or click here for the solo and acoustic shows in April.
