Gig Information

When Tourettes woke up one morning in 2012 in Skagaströnd a small fishing village in Iceland, his thoughts were not occupied with the idea of sitting in a van driving around New Zealand with Ben Salter at some as yet to be determined date in the future. 

In fact Tourettes didnt even know who Ben Salter was. That same evening however, Tourettes - who was on an artist residency in Iceland, embroiled in the depths of his first novel, - ventured out into the cool evening air and consequently stumbled across Ben performing a solo show in Skagaströnds only little pub. 

The two became fast friends and one afternoon decided to climb up a local mountain (Ben in winklepickers and a suit, Tourettes in regulation straw boating hat and cut off jean shorts). As the weather was turning, huddling together for warmth, the two men made a pact. Should they ever make it out of Iceland alive, they should go on tour together. 

Fast forward to 2014 and not only did the two make it down the mountain, their dream has manifested itself into a reality as they announce the Party Tricks and Boring Secrets Tour. Ben performing solo material from his back catalogue, Tourettes celebrating the launch of his first ever book. A collaboration with illustrator Joshua Solomon (artist / tattooist) this is the first time Tourettes has published anything and subsequently the first time the public have had the opportunity to purchase a book of his prose. The book will be available on sale at the following tour dates, as well as selected outlets.
