It’s becoming more and more clear that the Donutsh are like the US Mail, or a glacier; a force which moves when you’re not looking and which is quite impossible to fight against or stop in its tracks.
The “We Are All Strange Jane” EP has been scoring some fab (and possibly even gear) responses. Take TV Smith, for instance — a musician whose vegetarian Doc Martens we are not worthy to moisten with our tongues: “Deliciously odd, totally convincing, I love it!” Or DJ Alan Dorey of Forest FM: “What a fine EP it is: the production is first class, the sound has been well mixed and it’s clear that the band are a pretty tight unit and know what they’re up to.”
Alan will, incidentally, be putting his money where his mouth is and playing us in his show, adding to other radio stations such as Camden Unsigned, XRP Radio (for whom we did a live session a few weeks back) and Federal Radio (where we regularly feature in their Top Ten unsigned artists as voted for by listeners).
So if you haven’t already headed over to Bandcamp to get your copy, do it now — act without thinking! It’s a mere £3, which won’t even buy you a frappucino in Starbucks these days… http://donutsh.bandcamp.com/ is the address you’ll be needing for that.
Another way to get it is to come to one of our gigs, and we have two of those coming up within the next week:
Friday 28 September: The Artisan, 11 Hall Lane, Chingford, E4 8HH (8pm); £5 with flyer (get it here). Easiest way to get there by public transport is a bus to Chingford Mount, and it’s right by Sainsbury’s.
Wednesday 3 October: Camden Rock, 18 Kentish Town Road, London NW1 9NX (8pm): also £5, and you don’t need to bring a flyer, but we’ve done one anyway ‘cos we like doing flyers. Right by Camden Town tube, this one. Other bands include JJ Appleby, Montego Bay, Stroke Of Luck and Dewa — all more or less alt-rock.
We shan’t remind you to follow us on Facebook and Twitter, because you’re all sensible people and do that already, right?
Until next time, sugar-pies!
