1/3/10 : Easter weekend

Lock Tavern Flyer

Over Easter weekend we're heading over to 'No' Recording studios in Southend to spend some time recording two new tracks - 'The Elephant Of Castlebar Hill' and 'Only Forward'. As an added bonus, the recording studio is on a farm...

Also over the bank holiday weekend we have a midnight gig at Wonderland Festival's London party and then at the start of April an acoustic gig supporting David Tattersall of The Wave Pictures.

The facebook page for this event can be found here.


1/3/10 : Is it Spring yet?

Our collaboration song with We Walk On Ice for the "Between Two Waves" project from Eardrums Pop is recorded, mixed and mastered and ready for the mid-March release date... can't wait to let you all hear it. It was really good fun to record and great to work with Ida from We Walk On Ice again, she has a beautiful voice.

Lots of good gigs this month for The Lost Cavalry - including White Heat on Tuesday the 16th and The Windmill in Brixton on Thursday the 18th. x


3/2/10 : Things In The Pipeline

We're working on a few things at the moment! Firstly, we're excited to announce that we are now a 5-piece! From our next gig we will be joined by new recruit Toby on various instruments such as glockenspiel, melodica and guitar! Toby's a great illustrator too - check out his work here: www.tobyatkins.co.uk.

We've also been working on new songs including a collaboration with We Walk On Ice for the "Between Two Waves" project from Eardrums Pop. We're recording a song called 'Disappear', the compilation is out in March and will be a free download.

Other stuff - our White Light gig on the 12th Feb has been moved to March, more details coming soon. We've also got some other gigs to announce soon (mainly south of the river for some reason!). Oh - and I bought a new concertina! Whoop! :-)

13/12/09 : Stop The Lost Cavalry

Polaroid Christmas compilation

Most Christmas songs are fairly terrible but there's a few that stand out as being great - 'I Believe In Father Christmas' by Six By Seven is great and 'Christmas Wrapping' by The Waitresses is good too. But by far the best one (thought admittedly not originally a Christmas song) is 'Stop The Cavalry' by Lona Lewie. So when we were asked to record a song for Polaroid's 'A Polaroid For Christmas' compilation there was no contest - and of course the name was an added bonus...

We recorded the track at home in London over the last couple of weeks and somehow the neighbours didn't complain - hope you like it, you can download it from polaroid.blogspot.com now, along with the other tracks on the compilation by people like The School, His Clancyness and Electric Assembly, as a totally free Christmas present. Happy Christmas! x
