Our tour starts on Wednesday. Expect, new songs, old songs, sing a longs and much much more. We’re really excited about it as it will be our last this year so are going to play like it’s nineteen ninety-nine every night. We’d love it if you could join us. Tickets available here or from the venue. Full list below.
The Motorhome EP is back at Moshi HQ and looks fantastic, and good news!, it’s bigger! We coudn’t fit all the songs on a 10″, so we’ve popped it on a 12″ instead. It’ll be available at all good record shops from next Monday but you can still pre-order it here or even better buy it when you come to one of our gigs. Bamm! I’m not sure how many we’ve made but they are definitely limited edition so get one while you can.
Misc Merchandise and Presents Galore
As well as the ‘Motorhome Songs’ Vinyl and ‘Ship’s Vinyl and CD we’ve gone Merchandise mad for this tour. It’s like some kind of Alan Sugar shit. There will be limited edition screen printed T’s (60 red and 60 blue) posters (100) but, most excitingly, our friends at Shape Records have re-issued our album ‘I’m a Dancer/Songs about Sleepin’ and ‘The Girl Under a Tree EP’ both of which have been unavailable for a while. We’ve popped em in a double cd 2 in 1 like the beach boys would have done. Even if I do say so myself, it looks pretty dope.
In the first instance, the T’s, posters and re-issue will only be available to buy at gigs. More reason to come! Salesman till I die. If, for any reason, there is stuff left. I will pop it all in the online shop . I’ve been meaning to update for a while.
We have two instores in the next couple of weeks. Firstly, this Saturday (9th of November), 2:00pm, at Pop Records Ltd in Sunderland. Secondly, Sunday the 17th of November, 3:00pm at Rise in Bristol. They are FREE to get in so you can come to that then come to the gig in the evening too!!!
Finally, I just thought I’d give some props to some of my friends who have, or are about to release records in the last couple of months. I feel very proud to have played a (small) part in all 3 of them.
Euros Childs has just released his latest Album ‘Situation Comedy’, I was lucky enough to play bass on it. It’s amazing and everyone should buy it and go and see him play on tour. You can buy it, listen to it, get tour dates and everything you need from his website here.
Islet have just released their second album ‘Released by The Movement’, I helped record it. It’s amazing and everyone should buy that too. Everything Islet based can be found here
Finally, and by no means least, Cate Le Bon is about to release her album, Mug Museum next week, I got to play bass on that too, and it’s totally amazing, my running record of choice. Cate Le Bon stuff can be found here
