The Ort Cafe - 23rd May 2015

Written by Aidy.

Played Birmingham for the first time in a long time, we did a couple of full band gigs there about 2 years ago and one was at a burlesque show if memory serves me right. This time I was playing a solo acoustic set in a cool little venue called the Ort Cafe supporting Abi Budgen (featured in the pic below). Weird playing without Dave but still managed to crow bar in one of his jokes and some banter about the price of the British IBM merchandise. Also I performed Hey Mikie for the first time, which is a song off the upcoming album Psychopaths Dream in Black and White.

Next Gig is Relevant Records, 25th July 2015.

The Corner House - 16th May 2015

Written by Aidy.

It's been a while since we last played the The Corner House. Seems like there was a time when we were playing there every other week with the likes of Flaming June and Eureka Stockade "back in the day". Was a fun show and was great to meet headliners Psychic Lemon who played an awesome set. Thanks to Ian Guebert from Great Bit Blog for taking the photo.

Our next Cambridge gig is Relevant Records, 25th July 2015.

Dublin Castle - 17th April 2015

Written by Aidy.

Well that was our second gig of 2015, we supported Flow Brothers, Junkyard Choir and B-Movie Thieves at the Dublin Castle in Camden. Feels like we're getting the hang of this gigging lark again after only playing once last year. Dave and myself kicked off the evening with cheeky acoustic set and I somehow managed to spray pizza grease over my white shirt just before going on. Anyway! Thanks to everyone that came along to see us and cheers for taking the photo Deon.

Next up we're playing a free gig at The Corner House, Cambridge on Saturday 16th May 2015.

Psychopaths Dream in Black and White Artwork

Written by Aidy.

It's taking slightly longer than we initially anticipated but Psychopaths Dream in Black and White is on its way. It's currently being mixed over at Half Ton Studios and then it'll be making its way to Philosophers Barn in Norwich for mastering. It's sounding awesome though even if I do say so myself. In the meantime here's a glimpse of the new artwork! It was done by the very talented Daryl Blyth over at Retrophonic Designs who did the artwork for the previous album.

Stockton Calling 2015 Aftermath

Written by Aidy.

Just back from Stockton Calling 2015! With the exception of our little internet gig this was our first live performance since we played the Centre for Computing History last year with Mega Ran and MC iPod. It was great to be back up north again and to be playing live. Dave and myself did a cut back acoustic set just before Nigel Clark, which was very cool since we're big fans of Dodgy. Massive thanks to Matt Speight and Dan Cook for putting us on and making us feel welcome as always.

Next up we're playing the Dublin Castle in London on Friday 17th April 2015 supporting Flow Brothers. Tickets available here: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/313381
