We’ve been making a pilgramage there for many years and have grooved along to bands ranging from the Sultans of Ping, Neds Atomic Dustbin, The Happy Mondays, Clone Roses, Jesus Jones, Asian Dub Foundation…and many many more. Basically the Who’s Who of 90’s Indie and electronic music. Our musical heroes, in a nutshell.
So it brings us enormous pleasure to announce that we will be actually playing there this year, on Friday 17th 2023. The reality hasn’t set in yet…it’s bonkers! Amazingly, excellently bonkers.
Look – here’s proof, we’re on the poster!
So book your tickets now and set your sights on an absolute banger of a weekend at Butlins!
Here’s our gig supporting Talk in Code just before the lockdown kicked in. The soundman did a great job and we had a weird old whale of a time, while everyone started to wonder what the flip was about to happen.
While everyone was starting to contemplate social distancing, our drummer Tom managed to throw one of his sticks at Simon, which possibly contravenes the rules of contact. Proof, if proof be need be.
We had a blast playing the gig and really enjoyed Talking in Code’s set too. Thanks for having us, lads!
At the time of posting this, we ought to have been gearing up to play the beer tent at the unarguably fantastic Lechlade Festival while Alexandra Burke was to be warming up her pipes on the main stage. I know that a lot of our fans would have been torn between which act to see.
We’re really looking forward to the revival of actual humans interacting, but in the meantime, stay safe, stay responsibly distanced, wear masks, and let’s do more than just clap for the NHS. Do your research on the local MP who actually cares about you and register to vote.
We’re concentrating on finishing up our album for the most part, but we’re happy to announce we’ll be squeezing in performances at some lovely summery festivals this year – Live at the Park – Faringdon, Follyfest and Longfest to name a few!
