Tim Bowness and Henry Fool have announced two UK gigs in July where they will be performing material by no-man, Henry Fool and some songs from Tim Bowness’ forthcoming studio album, Abandoned Dancehall Dreams. The two concerts will also host an impressive supporting cast with appearances from Matt Stevens and Nosounds’ Giancarlo Erra.
11th July 2014 – The Borderline, LONDON: with guests Matt Stevens and Nosound’s Giancarlo Erra (acoustic)
12th July 2014 – The Wesley Centre (CRS), ROTHREHAM: with guests Matt Stevens and Nosound’s Giancarlo Erra (acoustic)
“Henry Fool have also formally announced that Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree, Ex-Wise Heads) has joined the band and will participate in all upcoming dates and recording sessions scheduled for this summer. In addition, Tim along with his Henry Fool co- founder Stephen Bennett continues to write material for a third HF album and the full band sessions will hopefully provide further new material.
On stage, Tim and Colin will be performing alongside current No-Man and Sanguine Hum members Andrew Booker, Mike Bearpark and Stephen Bennett, plus saxophonist/ flautist Myke Clifford from The Pink Floyd Dimension.”.

Colin Edwin is effusive about the shows and joining Henry Fool “I’m looking forward to making some noise in the (paradoxically) quixotic yet structured and simultaneously unconstrained environment of Henry Fool-dom”.
Stephen Bennett had this to say about this flurry of Henry Fool activity: “These shows comes at an exciting time for the revived Henry Fool. Having Colin in the band allows the Fool to stretch musically – ‘he and Andrew Booker create a tight and exciting rhythm section that works well with Myke Clifford’s sax and Mike Bearpark’s guitar”.
