Chances are you've already heard me talking about this on Twitter and Facebook or you've noticed the little KickStarter widget that we've had on the site, but I just wanted to say a massive congratulations to Tim Nicholls. Tim's Kickstarter to create "A big book full of spectacular artwork from the greatest games machines ever to grace the floor of your favourite arcade!" was successful and I'm really looking hold of my physical copy. It looks like it's going be an awesome book, oh and backers even get a signed copy of our album with it!

Retro Video Game Night Aftermath

Written by Aidy.

Here are a few photos I took at the recent Retro Video Game Night in Cambridge last Friday. The entire evening consisted of playing video games, drinking beer and eating burgers from the Burger Van that was conveniently parked right outside the museum. A great way to spend a Friday! Hopefully this'll become something of a regular thing and once we've confirmed the next one we'll be sure to let you know. In the meantime if you haven't yet visited the museum then get yourself down there and show them some support.

Retro Video Game Night (Cambridge)

Written by Aidy.


Very excited to announce that we're helping to organise a Retro Video Game Night at the Centre for Computing History in Cambridge. This promises to be a great night for retrogamers, the museum has everything from Pong to PS2 and everything inbetween! Museum owner Jason Fitzpatrick has even agreed to get out some of the rarer gaming consoles for the evening including the NEC PC FX and the original Neo Geo. If you have any specific requests for games or machines you'd like to play on the night then drop us an This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

You can 'Bring Your Own Booze' but due to this and the fact that there'll probably be a few titles not suitable for kids being played this is an over 18s only event. You'll also be able to order food from a nearby takeaway.

Play Expo 2013

Written by Aidy.

Well it's all over for another year but we had a great time at Play Expo 2013. We had a few beers, played a shed load of video games and even performed a few songs at the After Show Party. We also got to meet some very cool people, as always there was representation from our favorite podcast 'Retrogaming Roundup' and we finally got to meet Tim Nicholls aka @woodpunk. Tim's recently added our album to his list of incentives for people that back his Artcade book, if you haven't backed him yet then you can do so here:

Weezer Cruise Competition

Written by Aidy.

Please take a moment to watch and 'like' this video. It's our competition entry to win a support slot on the Weezer Cruise next year and the video with the most likes on YouTube wins. We're all massive Weezer fans here at the British IBM to the extent that they're actually mentioned as an influence on our About page and various other bios that we have scattered around the Internet.

We were a bit late coming up with our entry but Dave popped round last weekend and within eight hours we'd manage to come up with a completed music video for Feeling. Unfortunately, due to the very short notice, Paul wasn't able to be in it. Don't worry though we used some clever scripting to work around his absence ;-)
