Yo yo yo!

Apart from the weather, I hope everyone has had a lovely day. Striding out along the Brighton seafront, with umbrellas and small children flying past like a scene from Genesis/ a Beyonce video really brought people together, as it always seems to. Many ‘I can’t believe the weather, can you?’ glances were exchanged before I gave it up as a bad job and went home for a cup of tea. Had a butcher’s in HMV before I went, and saw piles and piles of Susan Boyle’s face on her album cover staring out at me. I left soon after.

So yeah our E.P is finally nearly released! On the 1st December to be precise and we’re having a knees up to celebrate. There’s a facebook event created for it which you can view here for more details.

There’s a couple of articles written about us on various websites and blogs. Click on the links below if you fancy a read:

Also, you can pre-order our E.P here so you’ll get it as soon as it comes out at Puregroove

There’s a load of gigs lined up over the course of this next month in support of the E.P, so it would be great to see you at a show in the near future-this Friday we’re playing with our good friends Rum Shebeen with plenty of other great bands at the New Cross Inn. Looking forward to that one! Check our myspace for more gigs here…

I can’t believe it’s nearly Christmas, gonna have to dig out my ‘Howard the Halifax Man Sings Classic Christmas Songs’ album. Never fails to get me in the mood. That and Quality street. Might have to just buy that Dylan Christmas album too, still can’t believe he’s made one-Respect.

Until next time…

What a productive couple of days we’ve had in Gaoler’s land!

On wednesday we completed the recording for our second E.P at Urchin studios, after a session with Andrew at Alchemea a couple of months back. The tracks are sounding really exciting and we can’t wait for the finishing touches to be made to them so that you can hear them in all their glory. Matt and Dan who work at urchin are really great to work with, always brimming with enthusiasm that rubs off on everyone in the room, always making for a splendid session. The mixing was done later in the day so we had to find a way to kill a couple of hours. We chose to spend it in a community centre/library/cafe-twas a strange place, yet one we felt drawn to even last time we were up these endz. After copious amounts of tea and coffee (what’s the deal with not getting a biscuit with your tea, yet you get one with your coffee? Surely this is wrong. What are we tea drinkers supposed to use to when we fancy a dip? I smell a revolution in the air), and after seriously considering the 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle to carve away at those stubborn minutes, we were back in the studio, tying up all the loose ends in the mixing.

And then it was time for bed…

For we had another early start the next morn. This is getting like an actual job!  A fun one though…

We had a photoshoot booked with Who’s Jack magazine, a lovely bunch of people who’d organised a shoot in a Private jet in Stanstead! It was nice to see how the other half live-the reception area was filled with Diet Coke and fruits and mints and pretty amazing magazines selling cars as much as houses and jackets as much as expensive stuff. Although the high vis vests slightly detracted from the glamour, it was all a lot of fun and we got some great shots of us in the plane looking well gangstar…After the shoot we drove to a quaint old thatched pub and did the interview with the Who’s Jack guys. The magazine with our lovely faces in will be out in December….

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.
