It's bugly time...

Ok, so i finally managed to get another video together, apologies’ for the amount of time its taken to get round to doing this but there seams to be a lot of illnesses going around at the monment which is probably a result of sleeping in a damp lockup for a week, did i mention that there were NO wash facilities the entire time we were there, NO SHOWERING! Unbearable.

**CLICK THE FLYER FOR FULL FLYER IMAGE**


We're doing most of the dates with Munroe Effect and some of the shows without Munroe Effect will see Pattern join us.


Big up to Sam Lambert for the lovely artwork.


We're hoping to get some new tees in time for the tour. We're all out of the White Shapes face tees so the sexy mind of Mr Gordo is pencilling some stuff together for a new design.


We're tracking vocals and little touches today, we'll try and get some videos up asap..

Still going...

We're still chopping away at the tracks in the studio. Things are going really well and we'll get a video up later hopefully, just haven't had much time to do it yet, but a couple more vids will be going online this week.

We have a little guest in the studio today adding some awesome extras, which you'll see in one of the vids

Day 1 Recording @ The Stable's.


So for our first night down @ 'The Stables' in Eastbourne, we prepared ourselve's for our first nights sleep, it seemed that we had to bunk down in a damp room that is commonly used as a practice space.There was a fucking lovely incident where one of the bands that store all their equipment here had returned from a two week tour and wanted to load in all their gear....it was 7am. All's fair in love and war, baby!


On a positive note, we're heading into brighton to watch the insanity of The James Clever Quintet tonight, nose's will be broken because i'm going to be windmilling at the fucking front with Steve, We're gonna hit the town like our parachute's failed.


Whilst i finish this up Gabby is currently getting everything ready with Nick to start tracking the drum's. we'll keep you posted.

Ready to record

So we had one last rehearsal last night before going into the studio on Sunday. Luckily we managed to finish the the last song we've been writing, which will be the opening track on the EP - it's a belter and a face-melter!

Keep an eye on the blog, as we'll be posting vids and stuff up whilst recording.


We've been shaping up ready for the graft too......


Big Love

He saw it coming..

"Owners of capital will stimulate the working class to buy more and more of expensive goods, houses and technology, pushing them to take more and more expensive credits, until their debt becomes unbearable. The unpaid debt will lead to bankruptcy of banks, which will have to be nationalised and the State will have to take the road which will eventually lead to Communism."

Karl Marx
Das Kapital 1867.
