RIP Shoes and Socks Off
It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that Shoes and Socks Off is calling it a day. Toby has put the project to bed and has released a touching statement about why he made this difficult decision. There has been blood, sweat and tears along the way, but we here at Pink Mist, although bloody gutted, are looking forward to what he has coming up next. Its sure to be passionate and sweet, sweet medicine for our earholes.
Shoes and Socks Off is playing his last show at the Old Blue Last on 24th September. Its a free Pink Mist show so no excuse not to be there!
Please read the following statement and head to www.shoesandsocksoff.co.uk to find out more about Toby’s plans for the future.
‘Ever since the first show, Shoes and Socks Off has been a bit of a pain in the arse. Bloody thing. The restrictions I place on it, and the fact that pretty much all the songs are about one very personal subject, make it’s functioning depend too heavily on me maintaining a certain level of ‘mope’, and in all honesty I don’t have the stones to maintain said mope any longer. I’m not sure if it was at all cathartic or even much good, but it was certainly necessary, so I’m grateful to those who backed me up over the last 4 years. I’m proud of what was achieved and blown away at the level at which a select few people have connected with the songs and shown their love and support. If you came to a gig, put on a show, bought a record or let me sleep on your floor, thank you.’
