We’re playing OUR FIRST LONDON HEADLINE SHOW (not counting the other month when we went on last after tossing a coin with the Coastguards) on Monday 15th November at the Lexington. Those nice folks at Fortuna Pop are putting us on, and support comes from The Lost Cavalry and Big Deal (their debut single ‘Homework’ comes out that very day on Records Records Records records, the same label that’s putting out our first single soon). Buy some tickets right now if you want to be in with a chance of attending.
See you all in Cambridge tomorrow night. Love and kisses.
14th September 2010
We spent a week recording in the countryside back in August and we’re just waiting for a friend in Canada to add some trumpet before we mix and master our first record. We probably won’t be releasing anything until early next year (although there’s talk of a single…) but we’ll definitely have some tunes for you very soon, and we’re very excited about what we’ve done so far.
We’ve just booked a show
with our friends Dan Michaelson & The Coastguards for the end of this month in Brixton and we’ve got our first London headline show
at the Lexington in November. Slowly we’ll be adding more shows to our sexy wallchart, so keep those “come and play in my town” emails coming, they really keep us on our toes…
Our song Injured Party appears on the soundtrack to Hilarious Consequences, a graphic novel by our super-talented pal Babak Ganjei, out soon
This is coming off like a really boring list as a result of sleep deprivation. We’ve just returned from the ever-wonderful End Of The Road festival, where we had a terrific show and a fantastic weekend. A few weeks ago we played at Green Man festival, which was also pretty special.
Did anyone mention that we’re excited about this group?
We’re dead pleased to be back on the horse (the “horse” in this instance is simply a metaphor for playing some shows and doing some recording). We spent some time practising before realising that being “in tune” and “remembering how the songs go” isn’t anywhere near as important as the quality of the pre- and post-concert snackfoods.
We played three shows earlier in the year, before we’d really worked out what our THING was, but now we know and we’re looking forward to showing our THING to people; we think they’ll like it. We’ve started to warm up, first by playing Maggie’s fine party in Battersea and then at Leytonstone Festival, saddled with post-Battersea hangovers. There’s a headline show in Cambridge coming up at the end of the month, a couple of the finest British festivals to have fun at, and we’re about to book a London show or two. Later in the year we’re hoping to pop up north…
And this August finds us heading to the Norfolk countryside, away from all distractions (apart from our 3G mobile phones and the very real possibility of trying out Ocado’s delivery service for the first time – we never said we were rock ‘n roll). Melinda’s hoping to ride some horses (in this case real ones), while the boys pop into Swaffham to score some horsefeed. We’ll be making an album you see.
We’re playing a show in London on Sunday 18th July (What’s Cookin’s festival in Leytonstone!) and another in Cambridge on Saturday 31st July. We’ll tidy this lot up very shortly. YEAH!
So we played three shows, and we recorded a little, but now we’re taking our time…
In the meantime, it’s our pleasure to announce that we’re playing two of the best festivals in the UK, Green Man and End Of The Road.
We’ve played two shows and we’ll play more. Debuting with the Coastguards was a treat, and hitting Brixton with Free Energy was a blast. We’re about to record some stuff shortly, so stay tuned. Ok, bye.
We’re playing our second show at The Windmill in Brixton on Monday 29th March, supporting Free Energy. We’ll be twice as good then, right?
We have our first show on 19th March at The Kings’ Head, Crouch End, London N8, supporting Dan Michaelson & The Coastguards.
