Solo EP, Camden Town and a video to make your momma proud...

This month I have been working on my new solo EP 'Lover'. I've been in the studio putting the finishing touches to the 5 tracks that will feature on the EP and I'm hoping everything will be finished in the next couple of weeks. Cover art-work has been designed by our badge-making guru, Toni Le Busque and there will also be some stunning art-work by Elisa Muliere.

We've been making some kitten steps in Europe by contacting local radio stations and venues about a tour we are planning in the New Year. I can't wait to go back to Germany and Italy, and a trip to Holland may also be on the cards.  Last night we celebrated the Bank Holiday with a Gig at Proud Camden. It's a huge warehouse/gallery in the middle of Camden Market and was a favourite haunt of Amy Winehouse, R.I.P.

For more gig listings check out the poster below designed and illustrated by the dangerously talented Ross Williams:

We have also been busy discussing the making of our 'Payday Slag' video which is turning into an exciting project. Fancy being in the video? We need a bar full of filthy revelers - I thought of you first!
More details to follow soon so stay tuned in.

Wilderness Festival and time for a nap...

We've been taking it easy this last week since our gig the other week at the Cellar with LPS. Summer has been incredibly busy. Now it's time to kick back a bit. The boys are currently away on a week's tour with The Epstein in Holland so I'm enjoying the peace and quiet of my acoustic guitar. I've been trying to write 5 new songs a month but this is no easy thing to do when the sun is shining.  Anyway, whose putting together plans to record a debut album in September/October time? O yes! That's us. We're going to record at least 10 tracks and take 'em on a mini album tour across the UK in the New Year. The West Country has treated us well, and with a few more London gigs approaching, who knows? Our next gig takes us to the squeaky streets of Witney.. This event is hosted by Witney Art Studios in collobaration with Toni Le Busque, the wonderful lady who designs all our badges. It's going to be a chilled out acoustic night with Samuel Zasada and Blowhole and it's FREE! In other news we've also been confirmed to play Wilderness festival this weekend and Arcane Festival in September. More details to follow soon.
