5/5/11 : Sing on our next EP!

Later in the year we will be releasing our second EP, which will feature our new song 'The Flood' which we have almost finished recording... but what it really needs are your vocals!

Wherever you are in the world, if you fancy adding your voice to the big sing-a-long 'la la la' bit at the end of the song then all you need to do is download the special backing track from this web site and follow the instructions. You'll need to have access to some kind of microphone, some headphones and some recording software (like Garage Band or something) and be able to sing mostly in tune (!), but basically, if you follow the instructions and send us back a file of your singing we will add it to the song and it will appear on the EP itself when it's released!

The more people who do this, the better the end of the song will sound! Download the backing track and instructions here and please send your singing back before the 31st of May... one, two, three... 'la la laaaa la la laaaa!'...


28/4/11 : New The Lost Cavalry releases and gig

Ahoy there! It's taken a while (I will mainly blame the film soundtrack we worked on since the last single!) but we're pleased to announce that we will be releasing our next single 'Desert Tracks' this summer. We've been working on the song for a while and we recorded it earlier this year at Soup Studios, Brick Lane with overdubs and mixing performed at my little home studio. So - more details nearer the time of course, but we will also be releasing a special free mp3 of another track to our mailing list soon, so sign up now if you haven't already, or 'friend' us on Facebook.

We'll also be playing a gig pretty soon in Camden - Tuesday 10th May at The Monarch with Friends In China and Clicky Bones. 40-42 Chalk Farm Road, London, NW1 8BG. You'd be most welcome to come!


21/4/11 : Song for a buried Elephant

I heard on the news last week about another story of a Victorian circus elephant buried under the ground - not in Ealing this time, but in Tregaron in Wales, and the dig being organised to try to find evidence (thanks to Amos for letting me know about it!).

Because the Internet is the amazing thing that it is, I got talking to the archaeologist organising the dig - Jemma Bezant - who was lovely, and after having a listen to our song about The Elephant Of Castlebar Hill she asked if she could use it as the sound track to her video of the dig - and here it is...

As you can see from the video and from this update to the story the elephant hasn't been found yet... but best of luck to Jemma in continuing the search!


16/3/11 : Gig relocated to Ginglik

Just a quick note to say that our gig next week (22nd March) has been moved to the venue Ginglik - in Shepherds Bush. It's a nice venue built inside the old public toilets - sounds bad, but actually very nice in there, we played a Fanfarlo gig there once back in the Old Days. Anyway - come along if you can, tickets are on sale in advance from www.dropevents.co.uk and more info on the event and the other bands playing is here on Facebook.
