Split launch gig

October 20, 2011

So, the time is approaching for the split to be launched. Although to be honest that time was probably a couple of weeks ago before it came out. Nevertheless, we will be officially launching the split with Broken Shoulder on Audio Antihero at Ryans in Stoke Newington on Saturday the 22nd October. There will be live sets from Fighting Kites, Benjamin Shaw and Broken Shoulder and some nice records being played in between. Doors are at 8pm and the live music will probably start at 8.30pm. Hope to see you there!

April 2nd Back at Ryans N16

February 27, 2011

We will be back at Ryans in Stoke Newington again on the 2nd April for a show that we are putting on ourselves. This time we have There’s More Of Us Than There Are Of You headlining and Broken Shoulder, the solo project of Neil from Fighting Kites, is opening the evening. The facebook event with all the details is here. It is the album launch and also the live debut of Broken Shoulder. Plenty could go wrong and that must be worth the entry fee alone! £4. Bargain!

Gig soon and album update

November 3, 2010

First post for a very long time but for once, plenty to say. First of all we are delighted to be putting on a night at Ryans Bar in Stoke Newington on the 13th November. We will be playing along with some of our most musical friends. It’s only £4 for 4 bands and playing on the night will be Fighting Kites, Elks, Ex Easter Island Head and Benjamin Shaw. Facebook event is here, but if you prefer to not gey your information from there, all you really need to know is it starts at 8.00, is at Ryans and will be a cracker.

Also the album making process has been moving on nicely, and we now have everything recorded and the majority of the mixing done. Sounding lovely too. Watch this space for more details. Hopefully the next update will not take so long!

Spatchcock next Saturday and more recording

March 17, 2010

We are delighted to be back playing Spatchcock again next Saturday, the 27th March. For those of you have never been to Spatchcock, well, it’s pretty great. Cheap to get in, brilliant and interesting music, and nice cheap beer (hopefully!). For more information go here!/event.php?eid=376682261897&ref=nf
or ask us via the email.
Still recording and it is sounding good at the moment. All the basics will be finished soon hopefully, and then we start adding all the decoration on top. Exciting!
