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.
So yeah, we’ve been writing a bunch of our own songs – in all honesty, Dave probably comes up with like 97.3% of the melodies and lyrics and whatnot, but he likes to throw us the occasional bone when he allows us to suggest a chord for a middle eight or permission to hit a cymbal or whatnot.
Please note these recordings are from rehearsal / jam sessions and without a doubt may sound wonky at times or possibly more often than that – but hopefully you might occasionally be able to discern the semblance of a catchy hook amongst the audio rubble we lay here before you.
So without further ado, adieu, achoo or R-2, here do be the tunes – if you want them for keepsies, you can right-click and do a “save as” thing if you’re on a PC. A long-tap on Android should let you too. If you is having the iPhones or a web-enabled smoothie maker or whatever, please feel free to let us know what works for you.
