Announces New Single “Barefoot & Free” out 6th September and

‘The Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow’ at this year’s Electric Picnic 

New band, new label and new approach. Working with a collective of artists Jerry Fish is releasing his first single ‘Barefoot & Free’ with his new guitarist Grum featuring R.S.A.G. on drums on the 6th September to coincide with Jerry’s very own stage at Electric Picnic’s Trailer Park ‘The Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow’.

Jerry Fish is thrilled to announce his new show for this year’s Electric Picnic. Mr. Fish is to host a mix of carnival sideshow theatre and alternative musical extravagance, including intimate performances from very special guests Lisa Hannigan, The Hot Sprockets, Mick Flannery, The Lost Brothers, Cathy Davey, The Lost Brothers, Colm Mac Con lomaire and many more friends the Fish cultivated during his sordid lifetime in showbiz.

‘The Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow’ promises to be a highlight of this year’s Picnic, aiming to deliver three debauched days and nights of mind blowing, soul bending entertainment. Offering an escape from the fear mongering of the modern world with an invitation to let your inner child run away with the circus.

Jerry Fish is a carny soul, one who has spent much of his life on the road, a shape-shifter, showman, shaman, producer, songwriter, performer, entrepreneur, supper club crooner from Lynchville. Whether operating as The Mudbug Club’s ringmaster, a rock peacock (An Emotional Fish), or patron of poets and spoken word performers (Michael Madsen, The Revelator Orchestra), he has always favoured innovation over orthodoxy.

The new single ‘Barefoot & Free’ is the very first of the new collaboration with R.S.A.G. (Rarely Seen Above Ground) who features on drums. Fish has also formed a brand new collective of artists and musicians for his live show. The main protagonist of Jerry Fish’s new line-up is guitarist Grum, who is from the Rowland S. Howard, Warren Ellis/Bad Seeds underground school of music. Jeremy Hickey a.k.a R.S.A.G. will also be joining forces with Fish at his future live shows.

In addition to this new collective of artists, Fish has decided to take a new path regarding the recording of his music. Instead of releasing an album and spending a year promoting it he will be releasing a new song in digital format every two to three months from August 2013 onwards.

After the launch at Electric Picnic, Jerry Fish will be touring a theatre version of “The Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow” this Autumn/Winter throughout Ireland…
