Year: End Of

We're ending this fairly uneventful year with a knees up at the Bulls Head in Moseley with our partners in noise Sunrise Over Europe, Prayers and Eat Y'self Pretty. DETAILS

We'll be showing off some new songs that have been schemed up in converted industrial units over the last few months. They are genuinely, fo' real. 

Apart from generally existing, we'll be uploading an EP in the new year under the moniker "Hockley Wheeze". Super lo fi, super fun. That is it's motto. It will be free as fuck to download. 

Until then; here are some bands we've played with this year that made us grin.

and as always.... ALWAYS..... And Upstairs, Nurses

See you upstairs at The Bulls Head. Buy me a drink AFTER we play.

It's just a few things you got me trippin'

Things to report:

1. A postponed show with Fighting With Wire (put back till their album tour later in the year)
2. New demos still camped out in the "work in progress zone".
3. Whittmund can't decide between 5A and 5B drum sticks. 

July. I'll see you tomorrow. In Sinister world we have, as the Danish say, "stopped off at the services on Junction 3 of the M5 and sat the fuck down with one of those fruit teas you get from Holland and Barrett". To your average Joseph this means we are spending more time on new songs and less on everything else. 

A tale ...

A few months back we were approached by some PR scouts whose main focus seemed to revolve around the acquisition (and acceptance) of English folks doin' a bit of that French House. Twas an odd few months in Sinisterville. Awkward phone calls, clueless emails and overall bemusement of the whole situation followed. They then asked us for a MASSIVELY INAPPROPRIATE SUM OF MONEY with no more reassurance than "so are you going to give it us? yeah, you." As we have no money and no means to recoup the no money we have, we let it pass. Quite content to take matters into our own hands until the world is offered to us on a plate with various flavours of crisp mixed into one bowl (controversial). This confused the face off them. "What do you mean you don't have supportive parents who will cough up?" "Come one, give us money, we're interested" etc etc

Any bands reading this....stick to doin' it yourself until you can waste SOMEONE ELSE'S money. Until then, make running water, food and electricity your number one priority.

Funded in no small part by a Marclar and the head of a bull. We shall be playing a show at the dublin castle in Camden on March 22nd:

We'll have physical copies of "No Scene B18" which we will no doubt hand out for free. Only because we are relentless in our niceness. Those that we know who headed south in recent years owe us a visit at this one! London types may even be treated to recently birthed songs, if they behave themselves.

A new year will be signalled by the following events in Sinister land;

Citizen will discover an old Gibson echoplex just east of Cape Hill. With this he will then pick up where John Martyn left off....with two working legs.

Fargo will get a job as a freelance loss adjuster. Mainly adjusting the losses of whoever makes tipex these days.

Jon will have written our 34th LP

Whittmund will remix it.

We hope yours is as prosperous :-)
