We are very much a ‘grass-roots’ operation with no budget for press or PR. So, we are reliant on bloggers, fanzines and magazines who actually like our music to say so.

Here are some press quotes we’ve gathered over the last 12Months. If you are a reviewer/journalist and would like to review our music or a live show please contact us here.

“They sound unlike any other band currently treading the boards”

“Their unique sound draws on a wide range of stylistic touchstones, whilst avoiding categorizations and comparisons.”

“What I love about Gaoler’s Daughter is the interplay between the melancholia and the kinetic energy, not only live but in the music and lyrics”

“We truly love this band.”

“No other word to describe it, excellent.”

“These are highly competent musicians, who work superbly together. It is always good to get a chance to see a band live”

‘No serious 2010 tips bill would be complete without the guitar frenzy cap of the capital sound of Gaoler’s Daughter.”

“A class act with a delightfully bright underbelly. Full of grace and whimsical pickings make this EP a slice of summery brilliance.”

“Grab your lover’s hand as one listen to this and it will certainly be your soundtrack to the Summer Of Love 2010!”

This week has been a good week in the world of the Gaoler’s. We recently played at the Gala for the film ‘A bit of Tom Jones‘ on behalf of Get Tested (Hepatitis C charity). A bit surreal to say the least, but it turned out OK. Amy Studt was on just before and she was great, although the P.A wasn’t really as loud as it should have been for her. Twas good to see the Who’s Jack girls (Lu and Laura) again. I spotted the big bald guy from the post office adverts, Denise Welch and Doctor Sanchez (a.k.a Matt Berry, a.ka. best voice in the world) from Garth Marenghi’s Dark place. Before that we’d been to a ‘Urban Junkies’ party for Monkey Shoulder whiskey on the top floor of Centrepoint by Denmark St. It was pretty good in there and the whiskey was flowing, although we all felt a bit out of place what with us wearing our ‘we’re in a band and very poor’ outfits and everyone else wearing their finest suits. Thanks Ronnie for getting us in!

After the gig we went to Punk in Soho for a few drinks (thanks again Ronnie!). The music (it was skate rock/emo night apparently) made me remember my times down the Red Lion in Gravesend, being 15 and hiding cider in the bushes while watching some local band covering ‘what’s my age again?’. They were good times, and after one of these Medway flashbacks I found my self on the dancefloor, sadly doing the ‘rock’ sign with my hands.

Had another gig at the King’s Head Theatre Pub the other day too for Koukee Maloukes. It’s always fun there as it’s so relaxed and we get to play acoustic, which I always enjoy. It means we can try out new arrangements and songs in a chilled out environment. Peter Shreeves who runs the night is a top bloke and we’d gladly play there again. He was also telling me about his band (The Kubricks) having inadvertently written a possible world cup anthem, so watch this space. Also, Trigger from Only Fools and Horses was there! And Terry Gilliam, one of my favourite directors, artists/generally creative people. So this week has to be a solid 9/10 for celebrity spotting. Maybe i should write into heat magazine. Maybe not.

In other news, Steve Lamacq has been playing our E.P on his BBC shows more on BBC Radio 2 and 6, and yesterday I spoke to him over the phone. Just a little chat about who we are etc, and it’s nice to have someone like that liking our tunes. Something more may well come of it!

You can listen to the interview here: (it’s about 2hrs 15mins in…)

There’s some new photos up from the Babyshambles tour. They’re on our facebook and our Website, and they look pretty sweet. Thanks to Gary for doing those

Gaoler’s Daughter

Blast off

December 3, 2009


So the E.P has finally been released! The launch went really well, we sold a lot of E.Ps and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Thanks so much to everyone who came down, it made it a great night.

Twas a strange venue though; it was at Puregroove Record Shop, but the records were on the stage and the main area was a bar/cafe. Although i couldn’t quite work it out, it seemed like a pretty pleasant place to just sit and chill and listen to some great tunes. Right opposite the meat market as well so there were lots of men clad in white with hardhats on shuffling around outside. Bit surreal really…

There are still some physical copies of the E.P left to buy, which you can get from our website, among other places.

In gig news we’ve just confirmed 2 dates as main support to Babyshambles on their UK tour @ Birmingham Acedemy and Nottingham Rock City, which we’re all really looking forward to. It will be great to play out of London and to big crowds too!

There’s a new issue of Who’s Jack magazine out now with my face on the cover and a four page interview with us inside. The photos inside are excellent, thanks guys.
