HELLO hi hey there. Our single comes out a week today - Patient with Youngest as a b-side - it will be available on iTunes and Spotify and about 100 other mp3 sites. Thats Monday the 12th, and our launch night is on the following Thursday the 15th at the Battersea Barge, a fantastic boat venue near Vauxhall tube. Bear driver will also be playing, they are very good. So we hope to see you all there! Also make sure you grab the single once it’s out - and if you haven’t done so yet then grab a copy of our free download.
We played at the Gladstone last night, first in a run of 3 shows there, first sunday of each month. I LOVE THAT PLACE. Nicest audience ever. Friendliest staff ever. Cutest pub ever. Best smelling pies ever.
Happy Birthday to John Herbert from GHA - they’re in Switzerland recording their 2nd album - looking forward to that!
This week I will mostly be listening to:
Bon Iver - Bon Iver
Race Horses - Goodbye Falkenberg
Robert Sunday - Butterfly Hairslide
The Be Good Tanyas - Chinatown
Pixies - Surfa Rosa
OH i’m going to try and write a song now. We’ll see what meaningless drivel/stroke of luck I come up with.
Bye for now, you take care.
Binko Bell’s Monday Ramble #2
By giving my first installment the title of Binko Bell’s Monday Ramble #1, I have forced upon myself a regular monday ramble. I like to stick to my word (I like to stick to saying that i like to stick to my word), so, in true numeric order, here is #2.
On friday night we played at the Windmill in Brixton - that was lovely. Andy played drums, and it was massive. Andy is massive. Fact. Not in regards to his waistline, or his height, or general build. In fact he is Physically very well proportioned, and of the average male height. I say ‘massive’ as in his playing. Very good he is. The sound was great and the crowd were appreciative, and Ben the drooling roof-dog (google it) was very well behaved.
Last night at the Gladstone, Borough, was a beauty. If you haven’t been to the gladstone, then why not? Get on it! It’s a gem of a pub, tucked away down a small street behind Borough Tube, called Sanctuary Street. We played as a duo last night, however the very friendly staff have asked us back, so next time we shall be playing with the above mentioned Massive Andy.
Our very own Lyla is a very creative lady. We’re currently at the stage of making our limited edition physical copies of our single ‘Patient’, (on the very lovely Adventure Club Records) and Ly has been doing a beautiful job on the actual on-cd Designs, utilising ink and tissue paper. Trust me they look amazing. Curious? Come to the launch party on september 15th and buy one:
Everything is ticking along nicely in the single release land - the official release date is the 12th of september, so until then why not enjoy a free download; A live version of Take The Pop.
That will be all, thank you for reading.
Oh and come to the Murmur Box at the Windmill on the 12th of August.
