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


1/12/09 : Goo Nite Christmas gig!

Christmas is coming and so is our Christmas gig on the 10th at the Wilmington Arms for Goo Nite. I promise to have fairly lights on my Uke. Support is from Bleeding Heart Narrative, Quinta and We Walk On Ice... Thursday 10th Dec at the Wilmington Arms, 69 Rosebery Avenue, doors 7:30pm/£5. Here's the facebook link and here's a flyer.

Our Christmas recording is going well... very well, we're excited, can't wait to release it into the world... 13th December is the date!


20/11/09 : Live and Alive

Hi! I have some good gigs coming up before Christmas with The Lost Cavalry... Thursday 26th Nov in Brixton supporting the brilliant Jonquil - that's going to be a top night. Then Monday 30th in Camden playing with our friends Marcel for their EP launch party, and then in December our Christmas gig on the 10th at the Wilmington Arms... we've been working on a few new songs and are hoping to play a couple then. One is based on this short film.

We've also been recording a Christmas cover song for the Italian music blog Polaroid's next compilation. I'm not going to tell you what the cover is, but if you take a guess you will probably be right ;-)

And finally, if anyone fancies a night out dancing and then come to the Wonderland Unbirthday Party this Saturday (21st) at Jacks, London Bridge where I will be staying up late and DJing 'chilled out grooves for worn down shoes' from 5am.
