Tap N Tin/Aliens

May 10, 2010

Surprisingly enjoyable set at the Tap n Tin the other night. Although i used to go there all the time, this was Gaoler’s Daughter’s first time in wonderful Chatham! We’d heard murmurings of discontent within the venue so had a feeling it was going to be a fairly quiet one, but as it turned out, there was a good sized crowd there, and we all enjoyed ourselves. But, alas, we had to get back to London sharpish, so we got the money and ran…

In the car back to London, we came to the conclusion that spiders are in fact aliens. And we indulged ourselves by listening to our latest recordings, which i should add, are sounding pretty sweet.

In other news, legendary DJ Dave Cash played a song from our soon to be released E.P on his BBC Kent show. We’re often played on the BBC Introducing show there, and it was great to get some airplay on a show aimed at a different audience! It was ‘Meet You On The Other Side of The World’- he played it during his country hour and it seemed to fit right in there with it’s country-esque drums and bass…thanks Dave! You can pre-order our brand new E.P Alchemy, with that track on it from here.

I’m loving Pentangle at the moment, they’ve been helping me through my dissertation, which is an uphill struggle at the moment, for that i thank you, Pentangle.

Another update coming soon…

The gig at Tommy Flynn’s was excellent. It was always going to be busy, as it took place on Camden Crawl weekend in the heart of town. And busy it was…

The set went really well, we even threw in a brand new song called ‘Famous Green Dress’ which we’re all really loving at the moment, having recorded it for our third E.P.

Behold a Pale Horse played just before us and were excellent, this being the first time I’d seen them live.

It was my 21st birthday the next day so when the clock struck midnight, I was bombarded with Jagerbombs (someone’s got to drink them), and by ten past I was ready to party. Ended up in The Camden Head after Omar kindly got us in, which was a lovely place and then got a bus to Ben’s house in Palmer’s Green for more drinks. Had lots of fun there, mainly eating pizza and the standard putting on of songs you’re sure everyone needs to hear on Spotify.

To cut a long story short I woke up at mid-day, and had an hour to get back to Kent for my Birthday meal. Anyone who knows me knows I am not a cartographer, but even I knew that was impossible. So I managed to miss my own Birthday! O well, I had a fun night and managed to apologise my way out of it in the end.

Only a couple of weeks until Alchemy comes out! Be sure to pre-order your copy over here!

The Game

April 11, 2010


it’s Ben here.

So, last night saw us play our much anticipated gig ‘The Game‘ at Scala King’s Cross. Thanks to everyone who came out to see us. Big special thanks to Dan, Katie, Jimmy, Kate, the face painters, technicians, magicians and everyone who worked so hard to make it a special night. We had a great night!

As my hangover slowly recedes I recall several great moments from the evening; Being introduced to the stage with a glowing reference from XFM’s John Kennedy, seeing our good mates Ronnie, Genie, Caffy, Danny and Tom again, hanging out in the VIP bar with Jack Penate and Mystery Jets while James Lavelle rocked the decks and of course all the beautiful (and amiable) burlesque ladies!

Our set itself went down really well. The crowd were really responsive and seemed to know most of the words! Alex’s mandolin made a triumphant return to the band, complete with new strings!

John’s playing his first solo acoustic gig on 15th April at R Bar in Gravesend. He’ll be playing all your favourite Gaoler’s Daughter classics as well as some new ones. Our next full-band gig is at The Gaff on Holloway Road on 20th April for ‘Snuffed It’. We’re on at 10:30pm. prices are £3 students, £4 before 10pm, £5 after. It should be a good gig. The venue is really cool. All our up-coming gigs are listed on our website;

Also, our 2nd EP ‘Alchemy’ is available for pre-order now from our website and on itunes.

Darren from ‘Shit Disco‘ has remixed our song ‘Jumbo Jet’. You can download the song for free from soundcloud. Enjoy!

Now go outside and enjoy the sun!

Had a really fun night out at Ronnkie pop at the Flowerpot in Camden the other night. It was absolutely packed in there as it so often is. The Supernovas played a great set, as did the Is Tropical boys who were Djing afterwards. Ended up in the Macbeth with them at some kind of lock-in. Then woke up in Brockley with a headache and holes in my clothes.
