Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly play four shows in one day

Sam Duckworth has a few words for The Horrors too

Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly singer Sam Duckworth played four intimate gigs in one day yesterday (September 11) to mark the release of his new single.

The Emo-folkster performed a series of short sets across London, which culminated in two shows at the Betsey Trotwood in Farringdon.

The singer, who entertained the crowd with tracks from his forthcoming debut album ‘Chronicles Of A Bohemian Teenager’, was in high spirits throughout his final gig, which saw him joke about TV presenter Russell Brand, attack the British National Party and take a jovial pop at recent NME cover stars The Horrors.


“I’m standing here being needy and pretentious and I don’t wanna be like that. Needy and pretentious people go to stage school and end up in The Horrors,” the singer quipped midway through the set before he backtracked and added: “I was just channeling that from everyone’s minds of course. All but a few.”

Throughout the gigs members of the audience were handed disposable cameras to document the shows before handing them in at the end.

Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly‘s new single ‘Chronicles Of A Bohemian Teenager: Part One’ is out now. The LP is out on September 18.
