Old Blue Arthur

March 11, 2010

Had a great night on tuesday in Shoreditch, supporting Tom Williams and the boat at their launch party for their debut single, ‘Concentrate’. They were so tight and got a great reaction from the crowd, who were all out in force to support him. We played afterwards and, it seemed, made a few fans as there was some pretty good dancing going down.

Went to a fantastic studio space/warehouse right next to the Old Blue Last after soundcheck. It’s run by ‘Arthur and Albert‘ and they’ve got some interesting things planned for the space, including magazines amongst other things. They’ve a lovely dog there called ‘Blossom’ too.

Never considered Shoreditch much of a Chicken shop kind of place, but there’s one right by Old Street station that was five star. Recommended.

Jacqui Sadler has some great photos up on her flickr page. There’s some of us at Folkestone Quarterhouse, and at the Old Blue Last for Tom’s single launch. Go and check them out if you fancy a look…

Squid Rubberneckin’

December 7, 2009

Just watching BBC’s Life. It’s absolutely incredible to think these animals have evolved these crazy ways to survive and pass on their genes. Makes you look at humans in a different light-we have these elaborate social conventions, inventions and huge cities, and they’re all there for one thing-the same reason all animals do all things. 

On more trivial matters however, it makes me angry that our licence fee, which can be used to create genuinely groundbreaking programs such as ‘Life’, is all too frequently used to make utter, as my Nan would say, ‘Drivel’, like ‘Young Butcher of the Year’. I really couldn’t give a sausage if you can make a Viking longboat out of meat. You’re wasting your time, and mine. Yes, I did watch it, but only in the same way that people slow down on the motorway when there’s been a crash. And yes, I remember it well, but only in the way that the teacher always remembers the naughty kid’s name. 

Apologies for the rant. 

There’s some great photographs from our E.P launch, taken by Jacqui Sadler which you can view here. There’s also a couple of gigs coming up at the end of this week, which we’re really looking forward to. One in Limehouse, right next to where we recorded our E.P, and one in Tommy Flynn’s in Camden. More Details are on our website here

All seems to be moving along nicely at the moment, and we can’t wait for the Babyshambles support dates in Birmingham and Nottingham.

see you at a show soon
