PREVIEW: Launch of Oli Spleen’s new album ‘Gaslight Illuminations’

January 14, 2019

Solo artist Oli Spleen will launch his new album, Gaslight Illuminations, and celebrate his joint birthday with collaborator Mishkin Fitzgerald from Birdeatsbaby, at the Hope & Ruin in Brighton on Saturday, February 9 from 8pm.

COMPOSED after the death of his father, Oli’s second studio album, in collaboration with Brighton indie-noir band Birdeatsbaby, touches on raw and personal themes including the emotional fallout of a toxic relationship.

Darryl W. Bullock, author of David Bowie Made Me Gay: 100 Years of LGBT Music, says: “With Gaslight Illuminations, Oli Spleen comes of age. Battle-scarred and world-weary he may be, but Gaslight Illuminations is his most tender and personal collection to date.

‚ÄúTouching on French chanson and Weimar cabaret, on death and loss, Gaslight Illuminations is a mesmerising work from an artist who has embraced his maturity.”

The launch will also include performances from Pink Narcissus, Hana Piranha, Birdeatsbaby and Oli Spleen’s Gaslight Band.
