New recording, 7″s, t-shirts, digital bundles and more…


Ok, so we’re definitely making another record. Either an EP or a mini-album depending on how efficient we are. Hopefully six songs. Either way, we’re going into the studio for a few days at the beginning of May and will release the results later this year. Hopefully this is good news.

Anyway, recording in a grown-up studio costs money so if you’re planning to buy any of our stuff at some point we’d REALLY appreciate it if you did it in the next month.

We’ve been through the boxes in our rehearsal room and added some things to our Bandcamp page that weren’t there before. These include band t-shirts and the last few copies of our hand-numbered ‘Tiger’ / ‘Vostok’ 7”. 

We’ve also added a 27-track digital bundle that includes both of our LPs and ‘The Flood’ EP for the bargain price of £9.99 – a package that’s only available until Wednesday 30th April. 

Both albums and both EPs are still available to buy individually, although debut album ‘Insects & Engines’ is download only as all the CDs sold out ages ago. 

Meanwhile, we’ve booked some shows.

The Louisiana, Bristol (Thur 24 April). W/ Narco Lounge Combo and Dynamite Pussy Club. 

The Wunderbar in Midsomer Norton (Sat 3 May).

The Golden Lion, Bristol (Fri 13 June). Big Joan, Annette Berlin and Big Joan DJs.

We’re also playing ArcTanGent – a post-/noise/experimental rock festival taking place at a farm in North Somerset over a weekend the end of August. 

We’re looking to book shows in other places this summer and autumn so if you want us let us know.

Thanks for reading!

Annette, Adam, Keith and Simon.
