So what have we been up to?
A lot of planning is going on for our new single, we're working on the new video pretty much as we speak. We recently took some new press shots as well, we're just starting to get some of the results back, above's a teaser shot...
At the weekend we played a show at the Enterprise in Camden, a very interesting line up all in all. Arriving to see one of your fellow bands in a moddish punk band with a lot of attitude and the other is a (very musically impressive) rock-metal band is a bit odd when you're a somewhat fey bunch like us. That said seeing Shakey step up to the plate and play a frankly staggering improvised rendition of "we will rock you" during the second bands soundcheck will live long in the memory of all who witnessed it.
Our next show is back on more familiar ground playing at one of my favourite London venues the Slaughtered Lamb with a couple of rather excellent bands firstly fellow graduates of the Leeds scene Arthur Rigby & The Baskervylles and secondly Canadian Poet, Story Teller, Musician and Singer-Songwriter Tanya Davis.
It should be a great night, so hopefully a lot of folk will come down.
P.S: Our very own Trumpet Crumpet Sophie appeared on Loose Ends on radio 4 this weekend with her other band Shady Bard, want to hear what her trumpet sounded like blown in Bill Bailey's face...have a listen HERE
