Hi there!

So we’ve got some preview copies (exclusively for band members and Alfie’s Nan) of our debut E.P to have, hold and cherish finally. They look the part, and feature exclusive artwork by the one and only Alex Mahood. It’s a fantastic feeling to actually hold it, and know that this is our first foot on the musical ladder.

Also, we’ve got some wonderful new Gaoler’s Daughter logo badges. So if you see us at a gig, harass one of us and we might just give you one. It’s exciting to see things moving along at a good pace, and everything seems to be falling into place ready for our E.P release. It feels like only yesterday we were working on our first songs in the toilet factory in Elephant and Castle…Oh, how time flies.

The launch partaaay: It’s at Pure groove Record shop on the 1st of December; you’re all coming right? Good, I thought so, see you there!

There are more details, as ever, on our website, and our myspace. And don’t forget to sign up to our mailing list to receive your FREE track

Salut

Carnival in Dartford?

October 18, 2009

Hello there,

Having just played a really enjoyable set in wonderful Dartford town centre (Bar Mondo), I feel an update coming on…

First of all there was some kind of carnival going on in the high street. Just thought i’d mention that.

The gig went really well for our first venture into Kent. A few old faces turned up from my old school (which was but a mile down the road) as well as some of my closest friends, and some new faces. Thanks guys, even the ones who turned up after our set! It was a shame we couldn’t play later (last trains an’ all) as it started to get well sardine after our set- but it was still busy and sweaty when we got to the stage, making for a great gig. Thanks to the guitarist from Standing On Giants for letting me borrow (indefinitely) one of his guitar strings; I owe you one!

I ended up staying until the bitter end and watched a brilliant fight unfold, involving toilet queues and incontinence, and drinking copious amounts of diet coke, as I somehow became the designated driver for all the purple-lipped red wine drinkers.

Just heard that our E.P artwork and limited edition C.Ds are being printed as I type, so I can’t wait to actually hold one in my hand as soon as I can!

That’s about it really-Go and have a butchers at our website too for gig listings, and don’t forget to sign up to the mailing list to recieve your free track

Tonight I had a wonderful Roast and then watched the Grand Prix. Nice one Jenson!

goodbye

Primary Boater.

Since signing to 360 degree music, things have been moving along nicely. We’ve got a new website with more tracks to listen to, pictures, links and some freebies for you lucky people!

You can view the website here:

A couple of gigs have been added to the calendar too:

1st October @ The King’s Head (Acton)

3rd December @ The Red Lion (Twickenham) a.k.a Filthy Mcnasties

and our first gig in Brighton is coming up this Saturday @ The Hope. Really looking forward to that one!

Creative juices have been flowing too, and we’ve been writing some really interesting songs in rehearsals. Two songs are nearly finished: One, a middle ages English folk tune with a Latin beat (if you can imagine it) and the other; a Smiths-esque danceable tune with some pretty deep lead guitar. Can’t wait to play them live and hear the reactions!

Anyways, the artwork is all done for the E.P, and we’re all on course for a November release for our debut. There will be a launch party to celebrate the release so keep your ears to the ground…

This week I have learned:

You can buy slush-puppy-like cider out of the taps in the Hermits Cave in Camberwell (‘Westons’)

The Horrors‘ new album is surprisingly good

Sunday Drivers do exist/are as bad as people say. Generally they have a wicker hat on the parcel shelf and boiled sweets in the glove-box.
