Saturday 28/5 we play Emmelord, O.J.C. De Klos, with Enablers, (awesome poetry spiel over serious slint sounding moodiness from dudes who used to be in the swans and the toiling midgets), Pfaff (our two drumming nutso buddies), an Dan Geesin, a fellow english man, so at least we might be able to band together and get a nice cup of tea, WOT WOT. Details are on here
it looks fancy, I AM EXCITED.
Sunday 29/5 we play in amsterdam, "Wijsjes uit het Oosten" at 36B amsterdam, christ knows where this is, all I know for now is that we play in the afternoon in a house and then in the evening at an art gallery which sounds SWISH!
in other news I just sent three songs to the chaps at www.cieloliquido.net The tunes are,
The Slate Wiped Clean
Lend me a friend
all recorded live at the Freebutt in brighton on 10/5/05 (mixed by Steve "cat on form" ansell) to give a flavour of our new wholesome sound..
On a related tip I saw one of Steve's new bands this week, Projections.. it was smart, like late fugazi mixed with the rhythmic side of Oneida. Enjoyable, they were unlucky to be playing with Lords though who were ON FIRE and beat the hell out of everyone in the room. They ruled.. check them out www.honeyisfunny.com/lords.. Piers on the other hand went to see Star Wars.. I don't want to spoil it for anyone.. but it turns out that annoying kid, well he turns into Darth Vader. I didn't see that one coming. I've decided to finish each post with a "stuff I am liking right now" list
new series of scrubs on E4, armando iannucci's charm offensive on radio 4, the new blackhorse 10" on tritone, Superwolf album, "Woman King" EP by Iron and Wine, the postal service record(s), can't beat red vinyl, Prolapse's "the italian flag", Yeo valley organic bio yoghurts (two packs for the price of one at waitrose), the absentee's free download track from Playlouder.com, and finally all of the first three dinosaur albums in preparation for their show next week. COME ON! TA
