Must be time for us to swoop down and cram another news update into your open ears like a worm down the throat of a baby bird.
First off — on Saturday 4th February, we play the Monto Water Rats at King’s Cross in the evening. This is actually the first gig we’ve had on a Saturday rather than on a school night, so no excuse not to come to it. There are scads of bands on all evening if you want to make a night of it, with The Deltorers headlining. It’s eight pounds on the door, BUT if you tell us you’re coming (or even may be coming) in advance, we’ll put your name on the Cheap List with the promoters and if you get there by 7.30pm, that’ll cost you just six squids. Leave a comment here, or click the button on Facebook, or talk to us or… something.
There should be at least one or two new songs which will see their first performance at the Water Rats, by the way, including “Demon Core”, our story of the Los Alamos nuclear scientists who were killed in a criticality accident while working on a nuclear warhead with… a screwdriver. (Srsly.)
Meanwhile there’s lots of interest in the “We Are All Strange Jane” EP, including (gosh) some radio play, especially from the highly esteemed XRP Radio‘s Thursday Breakdown show. The 4 tracks will, therefore, be available on Bandcamp very shortly; watch this space. In addition, in a fit of hubris we’ve had some snazzy T-shirts printed up with the EP cover design, white on black. These will also be flogged on the Bandcamp page shortly, but meantime, if anyone can’t wait, here’s a SPECIAL OFFER: email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) saying “OMG I want a T shirt” and it’s yours for a flat tenner, including postage anywhere in the world. Cuttin’ our own froats, aren’t we, guv. Awright.
More gigs should be in the pipeline after this one, so keep ‘em peeled.
