Just a quick note to give you the lowdown on a couple of gigs we have coming up in the month of July. We are always after more gigs so don't be afraid to ask us, we don't bite. All we ask for is £500, a well stocked rider and no brown M&Ms. We're joking of course - brown M&Ms are Davey's favourite.
On with the hoopla...
8th July at The Hop in Wakefield
We are very excited to be playing alongside Pylon who have got back together for a couple of farewell gigs and then that's that, no more - see them while you still can, they are marvellous. Also playing will be the lovely Helen Chambers and James 'Jimmy' Islip doing their acoustic thing. We are sandwiched between them like a gone off slice of ham between two fresh slices of artisan bread.
If you haven't heard Pylon before then shame on you, make up for it right now. Incidentally, this song is miles better than anything we'll ever do.
29th July at Santiago's in Leeds
Our good friend Toby 'Razor' Chelms has put together a bloody corking affair. Along with us there is Leeds' very own answer to The Jesus Lizard: Blacklisters. Also... The Dead Beat, who will be travelling all the way from Brighton, they are rocking and remind me of Born Against mixed with New Bomb Turks. Very new and exciting Leeds two-piece Two Trick Horse round the bill off. All comparisons are Albini based but I hear a lot of poppy influences in there as well.
Give them all a listen and make your own minds up...
Come along to these gigs - they will be fun affairs.
Now if only anybody actually read this blog we might be onto something... Here's a great video to reward those who might have happened to stumble onto here. Cheerio.
PS our demo is still hotter than an electric fire in a student house with 2 bars turned on. Check it.
