Nous son

“It’s come to my attention that confusion abounds regarding my management situation. Hopefully I can clarify the current situation. Forget my previous post friends … All new enquiries should be directed to Mr Adrian Hunter (once, previous, future and current) for consideration. Any enquiries directed to any previously named ‘représentatives’ (e.g Messrs Bodin et Duquense) should be directed to Mr Hunter whère they havé every chance of professional considération and onward actioning.”

this is whaT Adrian typéed in my ‘notes application ‘

Well there we go …

Adrian is looking after my professional concerns, once again. although as a close friend there are enormous tensions at times”hang on you”
he continues
“righty tightly  … One would assume that you’d deliver the ‘coup de grace’ … Let me re-read …Why yes Peter, approved. I’ve enjoyed every word of it. Hopefully now the heavens above will pour rain and scorn upon despots

    Dear Peter

    I am very very excited to see you in my home town of Poole. I’m sure you will love it here. The long beaches and sandy shores, Poole Quay, Old Town. There is much history in Poole. I know you have been in the area before, but if you need a tour guide, let me know! Last time you were in Bournemouth, we met and exchanged words, even had a photo. I’d love the opportunity to speak to you about Poole itself this time. Anyway, i’ll stop gibbering on.
    See you at Mr Kyps
    Best Wishes

    Hi, Peter as soon as I heard you will be playing in Bratislava, I almost jumped out of my skin, but since the time we live in is so instant, I found out all the tickets were sold out before I even found out you play. Damn it, what came across my mind was go and see you play somwhere in france. Im no stranger to long journeys. Me and my friends we travel the world on old communist era motorcycles, Jawa Pionier (translated Pioneer). They got 3 horse power and three speeds. Just the right amount.
    See our travels here :-)

    So excited about the tour Peter. The Leeds gig is two days after my 18th birthday on a Friday night so cheers for that. Going to Leeds and Sheffield then hopefully get to see Carl later in the year as well when he finally finishes his album. It’s going to he a great year for libs fans cell ceiling blues or whatever it’s called is the best song I’ve heard in a while and Carl’s victory gin is great too. Btw I saw a couple of videos you performing with the female violinist ( nice one ) and dlbits sounds so good I’d love to see it make it onto the shambles album as a bonus track. Good luck with everything while recording the album I’m sure you will nail it as usual and I hope to see you at the Leeds gig ( I’m still hopeful for Leeds fest too if you fancy doing the nme tent with shambles) cheers for being my hero .

    So happy to here this finally ironed out so to speak….Adrian is so interesting on Facebook msg’d him he should write a book as his post’s remind me of Keith Richard’s book “Life” and the Count/Duke Lowenstein that managed the Rolling Stones — a lot of stories to tell?!?

    Dear Peter
    I cannae wait to hear this new song with Reinhart’s Tears riff. Listening to the original just now.
    Will be grand i am sure.
    I’m also a writer of sorts.
    If you have a second or 3 here’s my blog – has all me writing; songlyrics/poems.

    with a chip fork -
    poured its vinegar into a different face.
    I was held together only by John Player Specials
    the sick in my hands – the mirrors taste.

    If you have a second or 4, page 2 has much better work on it.
    ‘Second or 5 etc etc etc. ;-) WINK WINK. Nudge nudge.

    Hope all is well.
    Kind Regards, James Cornish.

    Dear Peter,
    I’m not from the Spanish tourist board, but do recommend you drive down to Albarracin if you have time after your Barcelona gig. It is a beautiful part of Spain and there are Neolithic caves where you can see some amazing rock art. I have special memories of visiting there. Enjoy!
    Best wishes,

    I recorded a song for you.Hope you like it:)

  10. “Love has to be young, wild and free, and it tastes like kisses in the morning dew in lonely forest glades on the back seat of dirty cars, like the promise of never-ending love and the stars reflected in glazed girls’ eyes – high on the hardest drugs you could lay your hands on. The most beautiful flowers aren’t growing in gardens or in avenues. Come join us on a trip without a goal. The direction is far away, never return to this fucked-up life.”

    Hi Peter,

    i don´t know where to contact you instead, so i just leave it here as a comment.
    We are two artists from Berlin, Germany, doing photography and video art… i thought you might be interested in it.. It`s all about yearning, about beauty, about being young, drugs, violence, sex…

    We published a photobook called “Heroin Kids” in 2011 and now working on the second one.
    Our website is … but there are only few pics online, just censored ones, cause we have much legal problems with the photos here in germany. They don’t want us to show our work … If you interested in it and want to see more, i can also send you the uncensored PDF file via email etc?

    I hope you will have a look on it, i think you gonna like it. Would love to hear from you.

    all the best
    corinna & christian

    Oh right! I might have misread you then!Sorry…keep on improving my English!(is that you Peter? I mean, really Peter?). If so, well…Can I ask you a question?Is that ok if I used your lyrics in my PhD? I didn’t know how to contact you (or manager?)…
    Here it goes a stupid thing that just happened to me…A month ago I planted some tomato plants in my balcony down in the south of Spain…and guess what?The plants are flowering! Little yellow flowers all over my balcony!
    Glad to read you’re happy!

    Sounds cheerfully chipper to me…..

  13. evkh says:

    peter, i am so thrilled you’re making the long journey over to australia! how very colonial and adventurous of you. i am dying to know whether you will be playing any shows in sydney or melbourne? i don’t think i can afford the $400 price tag on a ticket to splendour in the grass. however, i will have to consider a means to an end if it’s the only opportunity i have to see you! please let me know. send me an email

  14. Celine says:

    Peter, please come back and play at Torriano soonish x

  15. absentee says:

    I just appreciate you so much in every way.

  16. hipkisswwfc says:

    Peter, can you reply to me, please? You are mint.

  17. Le Soleil levant says:

    Dear Mariaa,

    As you know people who write, play, sing and love are fully alive. For that they are no machines or people who are playing a role in life that is out of their nature. When you see someone like that in a moment of sadness or a bit less excited does not put that person being unhappy. You don’t breath every moment inhaling the same amount of oxygen and you don’t feel the same way all the time or are you not a human? For my concerns ,he is doing perfectly well, living the live that is his.

    • Mariaa says:

      Dear Soleil,
      It was not my intention to create controversy about Peter’s post. I just felt unhapiness (or maybe it was a change in the oxygen he was breathing?), and asked him. As simple as that. I was not expecting any reply to that. My apologies.
      He is a truly artist (in every single facet), my grandad was an artist as well, and I know that people who can perform their art are fully alive.
      I am very glad to read that he is living his own live, not many people can say that.

  18. Peter, I’ve travelled all over Europe to see many of your concerts… Now you’re finally coming to Australia!!!!!!????

    I’ve just bought tickets to ‘Splendour In The Grass’…… Shambles are listed…. Are you really coming!!!!!??????

  19. judebutterfly says:

    hi Peter!
    Thanks for all the shows in Paris, Sancerre, Nîmes, Marseille, etc. I have written my PhD listening to your sound and enjoying the different types of gigs you did this year and last year. Thank you so much for that. The show in Marseille was excellent. It was nice, for once you were not interrupted by fans sending personal messages so you had time to play more… :-) Personally I don’t know if you are happy or not but I can confirm that you make some of us (the fans) very happy so you should know that!
    I can edit your setlist though, because I didn’t hear you play What Katie did in Marseille… Here’s what I heard (not in the right order): Death on the stairs (?); Picture me in a hospital; Carry up in the Morning; Sheepskin tearaway; Time for heroes; new song untitled; Don’t look back into the sun; Down for the outing; Out on the weekend (Sublime Neil Young cover); I can’t stand it anymore (Wonderful Velvet cover!!!!); Can’t stand me now; Hooligans on E; At the flophouse; For Lovers; Back from the dead; Last of the English roses; The Haha wall; new song; The whole world is our playground; Music when the lights go out.
    Encore: new song Fall from grace
    Thank you again and sorry that you couldn’t play yesterday at the Fontania, good luck with that project as well!
    Take care, I wish you all the best!

    Hope you the best Mr!Have fun in those upcoming gigs!

    p.s Check out your inbox on youtube if you find some free time

  22. Mariaa says:

    Dear Peter,
    You don’t seem very happy…Hope sad times doesn’t change your talent. A talent of a Renaissance man…poetry, music, literature, nature, love. Oh well, love…
    May I tell you that I used your lyrics from ‘I am the rain’ to introduce my PhD…a bit geeky I know, but so nicely explained.
    I send you a link of a very nice place to get lost…There’s sometimes when that’s more than needed, right?
    Best wishes,

    • Peter says:

      dont seem happy? pas de tout….!

        Of course he’s not happy QPR have gone down.

      • Gail says:

        I do know I phoned you but I have no memory at all – hopefully though, as with much drink, I only said what I truly feel. And having drunk a lot and indeed for a fair while, I tend to suspect that’s probably the case.
        For the record, I think you are a truly extraordinary person. You must know that by now. I believe you are determined. You face disruption to your deepest dreams and yet you face up, see what’s out there and start again. On your terms. Also, you don’t just limit yourself to the life that you’ve had, but branch right out – and for what it’s worth, I’ve just so loved seeing that happen.
        I read recently that there’s a film about Maud Gonne in the pipeline and I truly cannot tell you how much I look forward to that. You have kept that most exceedingly quiet, Mr D! Which tells me it maybe means something to you. Anyway I am sure you will be incredible, and truly look forward to it with my whole heart.
        So! You blocked me.
        I’m a kind of person, or at least I’ve ended up living a kind of life, where shit happens, if that makes sense.
        I’m never really clear, in truth, what people mean by what they do.

        I watched an amazing programme a while back, by Blake Morrison – called – I forget, but anyway it was about the lies beneath the seams.
        I know, really, and truly, that I am not a person you would like to hear from again. I feel sad about that, but also I feel okay.
        I wish you well.
        With love
        Gail x
