That Launch gig…

Thanks to everyone who came to the launch at the Brudenell yesterday, we loved playing in the main room (having been promoted from the games room, possibly for good behaviour!).

Shatner kicked off the evening in style with a rambunctious 45 minutes of hook and riff heavy pop before we came on and did our thang.  We couldn’t have done this without the help of Will, standing in for our convalescing drummer, Carl.

Will – everyone was so impressed with your drumming, especially Max, Rob and me!  Big thanks!

One request – if you were there and had any footage / photos – please can you share them with us?  We’ve already had this from the youtube superstar guitar tutor Andy Crowley who just happened to be at the gig!  If you like it, then ‘like’ it!

CDs ready to go…

Get yourselves to KoolKat Musik right now and you’ll soon be in possession of the album in that most compact of formats, the CD.  They look pretty good (imho) with artwork from our multi-talented guitarist / producer / design guru Rob and yours truly.  And of course, you get a bonus 5 track CD of songs from acoustic radio sessions, including our cover of ‘Blue’ by the Jayhawks for Dermot O’Leary’s BBC Radio 2 show.


It’s here!

Finally, it’s out today.  Black Sky Thinking, our 4th album is available on Bandcamp now.

You can download it for free, or pay us what you think it’s worth – you can imagine which we’d prefer, but honestly, just get yourself a copy!

The CD is available via KoolKat Musik, so if you want a copy, please contact them here.

Finally, our hometown launch gig is happening at Leeds finest venue, The Brudenell Social Club (click on the link for full details) on Wed 5th April – only £4 entry (doors 7:30pm).


Our Facebook event page is here – let us know if you’re coming.

Information overload!  That’s enough for now, see you at the Brudenell!

Bring on the Merch

If you’ve been following our Facebook page, as I can only assume you have been, you may have noticed that we are now officially a real band as we have t-shirts for sale. The design was created with the help of OR8 Design and looks rather smart if you ask us.

You can get your hands on one of these fine garments for the entirely reasonable price of £10 plus p&p from our Bandcamp Merch page and it comes with a free download of our “Everyone Loves a Villain” album.

Alternatively pick up a shirt at one of our upcoming live gigs:

Actress and Bishop, Birmingham – Sat 25th March

Brudenell Social Club, Leeds – Wed 5th April



Gig updates / Spinal Tap?

With a week to go til the new album is officially released, it’s typical of us that we’ve run into a hiccup.  Carl is currently hospitalised, possibly as a tribute to Spinal Tap, but more likely as he’s waiting for a major operation.

This has obviously had an impact on our gig schedule – we’re going to postpone the Northampton and London shows til later in the year when Carl is back on his feet, however, the Birmingham and Leeds gigs are a bit close to call off and so will be going ahead, albeit more acoustically.

Having done a secret warm up gig in Bradford as an acoustic 3 piece, we know it’s still going to be fun.  The positives are that the audience get to hear the words a bit more and not go home with their ears ringing too much; the negatives are that you don’t get to experience Carl’s amazing drumming skills and we don’t rock half as much.

Anyway, click here for the Facebook events for Birmingham on Sat 25th March at the Actress and Bishop and Leeds on Wed 5th April at The Brudenell Social Club and let us know if you’re coming!

Entry to both gigs comes with a free download of the new album!
