It’s all in the title, really. This is the first, or second, depending on how you look at it, single from our forthcoming album (out May 4th be with you).
To commemorate this momentous occasion, we will be headlining- yes, headlining The O2 Academy 2 (upstairs) in Oxford on the 27th Feb along with…
Alternative Rock 4 piece Decovo about whom I can find very little. But they look nice and sound great.
I do know all about the The Aureate Act as we’ve played with them and indeed taught one of them guitar. They’re sickeningly young, frighteningly good and party it like it was 1973, with a heavy vein of Floyd/Genesis/King Crimson to their live set. Listen to this though and tell me it doesn’t sound a little like The Smiths too
Kid Kin are bloody great and leave me with a grammatical conundrum as they both are and is Peter Lloyd, some kind of goddamn polymathematical multi instrumentalist genius who whipped up an absolute storm at the Punt last year.
His debut album is on here with other good things:
Alan Jaggs – Music is a talented pop punk singer songwriter when he isn’t busy playing with The Make Out Kids and The Conspiracy. We like him a lot. Watch him scamper round The Pitt Rivers here:
For forthcoming single ‘Hammer and a Nail’- OUT 23rd FEB!
We’re filming on 30th January from 7pm at a nice wee venue called The Others in Stoke Newington, London. Basically we want you to come down and prance about in silly costumes and have fun. Think you can manage that?
Entrance is free and we will provide free crisps and a night of top entertainment including a live set from Vienna Ditto, DJ sets from Bobby (DIOYY?), HinHin and some surprise guests and a raffle!
If you have some sort of performance skill that’ll look good on camera too that’d be simply marvellous. Unfortunately our practically non-existent budget won’t stretch to paying anyone but we’ll credit y’all big time.
Costumes are really important. Basically classic fancy dress like clowns, robots, pirates, cows, wrestlers, transvestites, punks, masquerade ball people etc. – just no celebrity or character costumes.
**The weirdest costumes and best dancers will win prizes (even more crisps, booze, hugs) and will definitely appear in the finished video.**
7pm // 30th Jan // 6-8 Manor Rd, Top Floor, Stoke Newington, London N16 5SA
So we’re not supposed to be doing any gigs in November because we’re busy recording our DEBUT ALBUM YEAH but these were too good to shirk…
You can download it free or buy it here whence you can also buy a 7-track CD, which also contains our Gospel Session EP. Yowsers.
With a lovely interview and review of our punt show too- read it all here!
The Punt is Nightshift Magazine’s annual showcase of Oxford unsigned bands and we’re playing last! Not sure it means we’re headlining as such, there’s too much general love for that kind of attitude. Find out more HERE
This is going to be a special gig where we play some of our quiet ones and few gospel bangers
