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!
