Saturday, November 7th, 2020 – In Concert and Live Stream

After the disappointment of having to postpone our acoustic show on Oct 30th, we are delighted to announce a new show for Nov 7th at one of our favourite venues, The Met in Bury.

You can attend in person, booking either a table (from £43) or individual seats (£15). Due to social distancing rules tickets are limited so early booking is strongly recommended.

The show is also part of the Live Roots online concert series, and will be streamed live. Tickets for this available here.

This is a full band show. It will feature songs from the new Country Darkness album as well as plenty from the MDC back catalogue.

This will also be the ‘Country Darkness’ album launch party so come down, have a drink on us and get yourself a signed copy too.


Thanks for all the pre-orders so far, for both the album on CD and the 12″ vinyl of Country Darkness Vol 3.

Pre-order the album now via Amazon or our website.

Some very nice reviews starting to appear. Here is what UnCut has to say:

It is with a heavy heart and a huge amount of frustration and disappointment to announce that the My Darling Clementine show on Oct 30th has had to be postponed due to the Liverpool region going into Tier 3 lock-down.

We will re-schedule and all tickets will be valid.

We can’t announce that new date yet as there is still uncertainty about restrictions but rest assured IT WILL TAKE PLACE. Thanks to all who had bought tickets (it was sold out) and in particular those who were travelling from various parts of the country.

Stay tuned for the announcement of a planned socially distanced show and live-streamed event for Nov 7th in the north west.

The Crooked Line & Country Darkness Vol. 3

Hi friends

A very brief missive from us to you, with 2 pieces of news to share.

Firstly, from today, Friday Sept 11th, you can pre-save our new single, The Crooked Line, on Spotify.

The song is taken from Country Darkness Vol 3  the third and final instalment of our Elvis Costello song project with Steve Nieve.

Vol 3 will be released October 23rd on 12 inch vinyl and via streaming services, and will be followed by the full album on Nov 6th. The album includes all 12 songs from the 3 x EPs plus a bonus track of a brand new MDC song. The album will be available on CD and via all streaming services.

Secondly, We are thrilled to announce the first My Darling Clementine concert since lockdown began.

The show coincides with the release date of the new EP, and the album the week after, so this will also be our “launch party”. All those attending will have the first chance to get hold of copies, in person, signed, plus other additional new items we will have available for the first time on the night. There will even be a drink, a toast on us to celebrate.Tickets numbers are limited due to social distancing and only available via advance booking.

We didn’t expect to be launching our new album at Thornton Hough Village Club but given it is just down the road from Elvis’s old home town of Birkenhead, it’s perfect.

There are just a few tickets remaining so early booking is strongly recommended.

More details to follow in a couple of weeks about the album and Vol 3, and also,  hopefully, some more live shows for the early part of 2021, pandemic permitting!

Keep well everyone.

With love from us to you,
L and M
