Rich Keeble & The More Accomplished Musicians tour dates
Here’s the blurb:
Rich Keeble is an actor and voiceover artist most recognisable as the man sitting on a hippo in the Topcashback TV adverts, but he’s performed as singer, guitarist, keyboardist and drummer in various bands since the early 2000s.
Keeble brings lead vocals and Big Muff guitar noise to this new band for 2017 which incorporates the ferocious drumming of his long-term collaborator Jon Shortt and the fret busting bass playing of David Johnston to produce garage rock and punk songs about parking etiquette, stolen office stationary and misjudged genital tattoos.
Rich and Jon used to be in Goodbye Sergeants who played all over the country and had a lot of Americans interested in them for about 5 minutes in 2007. Rich also toured as keyboardist with Brighton indie rock outfit The Splendour and as drummer with anti-folk veterans Sergeant Buzfuz in 2008. David plays with acclaimed singer/songwriter Phil King, as well as in Mesadorm with Vaults frontwoman Blythe Pepino, and Chairfight with Goldfrapp drummer Daisy Palmer.
Their debut self-titled album is due for release in August 2017.
The debut self-titled album is due for release in August 2017 on Rich’s own label, My Telephone Voice, as a digital download and limited-edition cassette.

The Pistol Gang & The Preacher
I’m currently occasionally playing drums in a band called The Pistol Gang & The Preacher with my mate Sam (who’s in Rich Keeble Vanity Project) and Matt who I went to school with and played with Goodbye Segreants.
Check out this recent gig with some amazing drumming from yours truly! woohoo!(nice fills at around 39:40! ha!)
From about 2006 I sang and played guitar in Goodbye Sergeants. We released a single in 2007, which some people in America seemed to like, and an EP in 2008. They’re on iTunes and you can listen to some of it here:
In 2008 I ended up taking a bit of a break from GS, playing drums in Sergeant Buzfuz and keyboards in The Splendour, playing on both those bands’ tours supporting their new albums. I also joined The Pistol Gang & The Preacher as drummer.
I quit Sergeant Buzfuz in early 2009, and The Splendour went their separate ways after the tour at the end of 2008. The last gig I was supposed to play with Pistol Gang was cancelled when my appendix burst.
Goodbye Sergeants recorded a new EP called “3 more songs”, (hilarious because it’s actually got 4 songs on it) but it got put on the back burner when I started to get into acting.
Since then I’ve done a bit of this and that, including getting into some electronica collaborations:
