Howdy Rosiettes,

As some of you may have noticed we've been pretty quiet lately. This has been a combination of putting finishing touches on our album and being ill.

Tough times but none the less we'll be back next year with our brand new album and hopefully a whole host of other treats and trinkets.

Anyway to tide you over till then, we've decided to give away an exclusive, free, live demo track.


Just follow the instruction on screen and a lovely free track will wing itself your way,

cheers guys and gals,

so. we have been in the studio the last couple of weeks. We have been experimenting a lot, and i think this is the start of a new rosie taylor project.

It's gonna shock you! you're gonna hear didgeridoos, sitars, banjos, gongs, parrots, toasters, and the list goes on.

Of course you will have to wait to hear the album. But we do have an exclusive for you.

Whiskey India Lima Charlie Oscar

Afternoon Rosiettes,

Whilst perusing the upcoming gigs and shenanigans in the Leeds area I noticed something of an anomaly. There were the usual suspects, the fanfarlos, wild beasts and Idlewilds of the worlds. The sort of bands you think it's no great shock to see there touring. All fantastic wonderful bands but almost reassuringly reliable at turning up in a venue near you on at worst a yearly basis.

Another band was also listed, one I wasn't sure I could ever remember playing in England let alone in Leeds. That band was Wilco, forefathers of alt-country as we know it, uncut darlings, generally wonderful yanks with a penchant for heartbreaking tunes and makers of one of my favourite ever albums Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

Ok I will fully admit that the more recent efforts haven't lived up to YHF, sometimes they verge on the cringe worthy, and Heavy Metal Drummer has just never been that good a song.

Despite all this, the chance to see Wilco in Leeds (one of only two uk dates) is not to be missed. Seeing songs like Ashes of American Flags and I am trying to break your heart played live is a rare and wonderful opportunity not to be missed,

much love,

Radio Days

Dear Reader,

Hope you are well, still not fully competent with this blog format, it's like a letter right? I am writing to relay to you information about our recent radio days. The ever genial disc jockey Marc Riley was our host and for him and the listening public we performed three tracks. If you were one of the sad unfortunate who missed it, here is your portal to the "iplayer" where in addition to our songs you can quite appropriately hear us discussing our luddite nature.

We sung, strummed, mounched and horned:

A Walk by Moonlight
Lovers or Something Like It

Herewith, the link

Last weekend we also played Moor Music festival located in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside. Thanks to all joy-seekers who chose to plant themselves before our stage on Saturday night, it was a real pleasure playing to you.
The falafel was just alright.

go have a look yes.


behind the scenes

i totally forgot about these pictures. these are from the video shoot for "lovers or something like it".

the lovely ben and tash who created our wonderful video.

from my photographs it would seem the band only consists of two members; Jonny and Joel. This isn't true. Jon x
