Play the Game - Out 21st Feb 2020

Written by Aidy.

They say the second album is the difficult one, so I'm not quite sure what that makes this one but I'm very excited to announce that our third album entitled 'Play the Game' will be landing on Friday 21st February 2020.

It's indie-rock, it will be available in both physical and digital formats, it contains lots of guitars and it was recorded at Sickroom Studios with Owen Turner who also recorded 'Jet Set Willy' and 'Where Is Matthew Smith?'. Other than that I'll let the album speak for itself when it lands rather than waffle on here, because as someone once said: "Writing about music is like dancing about architecture".

Retro Video Game Night #021

Written by Aidy.

Date: 29th November 2019
Venue: The Hub, Cambourne
Tournament: Goldeneye (N64)
Tournament Winner: Mark Clifford

Third Retro Night in Cambourne and appears to be growing in popularity. Tried a different layout, which meant we could get more systems out. This was a Christmas themed night, with a few festive decorations and an old black and white Binatone TV playing Christmas adverts from the 80s and 90s.

Unfortunately, Ian couldn't make it down but a few of us managed to work out the logistics for the Goldeneye tournament and managed to run it fairly successfully.

Retro Video Game Night #020

Written by Aidy.

Date: 4th October 2019
Venue: The Hub, Cambourne
Tournament: Mario Kart 8 (Nintendo Wii U)
Tournament Winner: Ian Bolton

After the first ever Cambourne Retro Video Game Night the second one got a bit more publicity and some local press which resulted in the numbers nearly tripling. Was a great atmosphere and we even ended up having to put out another system mid-event. Luckily Ian brought his Mega Drive Mini along.

Another fellow retro nerd, Adam Sheik, got in contact after he heard about the event and was keen to get involved and bring a few bits along. Adam's awesome setup consisted of a Vectrex, a customised ZX Spectrum and his Commodore 64. Check out the photos!

Mike James host of Retrogaming Roundup (My favourite podcast) also made an appearance!

Lord Conrad very nearly ran out of beer. Luckily he just about made it through to the end of the night with a few bottles left.

Ian's tournament went down a storm with winner, Ian Bolton, walking away with a selection of beer and a hand held gaming console.
