Shambles and Babyshambles

November 16, 2009

Hello there,

this week we played a couple of gigs. The first was in Spitalfields at a place called The Luxe. Twas an adventure in itself just getting to the gig! We were picked up from Camberwell by our friend Dave Ashby from Rum Shebeen (great band) after a quick rehearsal at Mahood’s flat. Then we drove to Dave’s to pick up a guitar amp, then onwards to Penge to collect a bass amp for Alfie. The van kept pulling over to the left but we thought nothing of it until we arrived in Penge, only to be told by a local man in beige and graduated tint glasses that we had a catastrophic puncture. So once more into the breach, we all piled into Dave’s Mum’s Fiat and off we set for Spitalfields. The gig itself was okay and it was good to see a few familiar faces, thanks guys!

The next day was much more straightforward. We were playing with Babyshambles at the Dirty South in Lewisham. It was an excellent gig, we played well and I managed to give away all of the Gaoler’s Daughter Badges I’d taken with me. If you want one yourself, get yourself to a gig and pester us! Had to un-invite people though as the gig was completely sold out the day before, so sorry if you didn’t get in. The guys in Babyshambles played a blinder, as did The Thirst, who we’ve always thought were excellent. Afterwards I had to drive back to Brighton for Uni the next day with my Sister, and so felt it only fair to buy chicken from my favourite chicken shop; Amir’s Fried Chicken in New Cross (once i only had 75p, i was drunk and tired and hungry and gave him the ‘I need chicken’ eyes, and he gave me chips and 5 hot wings! This is one of my best chicken based anecdotes)

Anyways, E.P is only a couple of weeks away from release so that’s very exciting. The second E.P is in the pipeline, having already been recorded, and yesterday sent away for mastering. So it’s all moving along nicely!

see you soon

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.
