Birmingham Arena Show Review

Jimi kicked off his tour with Elbow last night. Feedback on twitter seems overwhelming positive! Here’s one media review early doors:

His set was all his own stuff and he didn’t disappoint. There were no crowd pleasing Doves songs but he went down well. People knew his set shouting out for the songs like Didsbury Girl- “have you been reading my diary?” Doves were always three equal parts; now this is his band. He was in the spotlight, and seemed a bit nervous but he needn’t have worried. One mention that he had written Panic Tree with Mr Garvey and he was on a winner.

For me the set seemed short but after all he was the support, and as he left he assured us we would have a magical time with Elbow. So was it? Magical I mean. – Ian Gelling

Jimi is Already Planning the Next Album!

Jimi recently spoke to NME about his plans for the follow up to Odludek.

“I wrote some stuff in Sweden with the guys from Dungen,” Goodwin told NME. “I got together with their guitarist Reine Fiske, who’s just mad, and their former drummer Fred Bjorling, who’s a friend. Dungen are a fucking special band. We did a song called ‘Nails’ in a vintage studio with wall-to-wall valves. I hope to go back with them when I’ve finished touring this summer.

Odludek Chart Placing

Odludek ended the week in the UK album charts at number 39! Great news, I was not expecting the album to trouble the charts at all to be honest, so a good effort and well deserved.

Jimi starts his tour with Elbow this week. For the latest tour dates visit jimigoodwin.com

Jimi at the Guardian

A very cool shot of Jimi performing live at the guardian HQ.

In other news, Odludek proudly sits at #22 on the midweek charts. A very good effort so far I think, considering most folk will have no clue who Jimi Goodwin is. Of course the Doves connection will help, but its a great start. Hopefully the sales remain strong for the rest of the week.
