Well good ol’ Sam Leemeroid unearthed an unreleased demo this week recorded during the broken leg sessions in Buckfasleigh near Totnes with some machinery electronics and a backwards guitar solo and a fat organ amongst other noises I can’t recall. If I remember, we penned this one together in about half an hour, recorded it there n then.. and never got round to sorting it properly. It’s a song about living slightly underground.
A bit of temporary busyness going on at the moment. Last week was a really nice support slot with Drugstore who put in a real gutsy show at Hebden Trades Club… also joined them on stage to sing on their new single ‘Aquamarine’ which was a bit of a larf. really nice night all round and they were a good bunch of folk. Their new album is getting good feedback too
Some gigs we’re really looking forward to coming up…
this sunday, A Hey Manchester! event with Last Harbour and A Rookery at Hebden Bridge Trades. Followed by a gig at the fantastic Band on the Wall in Manchester on Monday 2nd of April with Air Cav who sound fantastic live. I’ve watched a vid.
This one should be spot on. A Sneeze Nights event on May the 7th at The Works in Sowerby Bridge with James Blackshaw (YOung God Records amongst others) listened to his albums many a time and, man, do they drag you in.
Finally they’re playing a Johnny Powell and the Big Sad Face of Infinity track or two live on BBC Radio Introducing Manchester this sunday (i think). I have no more details on this. I believe it is to promote the ‘New Manchester Review’ night we’re playing at next week which sounds like a great event to keep your ear out for over the coming months.
Fare ye well.
