I’m convinced Connan Mockasin comes from another planet. Like any good shape shifting alien you never really know what to expect from him. Thankfully the UK had three chances to experience his warped and wonderful world on his current tour supporting his latest album 'Jassbusters'.

Late Of The Pier Wolverhampton was like a winter wonderland. The roads were icy, the buildings covered in snow, the air thick with white snow clouds, but inside the Wolves Civic Hall, hearts were melting. Tonight’s line up: Connan Mockasin, Micachu and the main act, Late of the Pier...
