Yacht club = RUBBISH
I didn't get a chance to post/ mail anything over the weekend so I'm terribly sorry if anyone tried to get along to the Yacht Club gig on sunday, the "people" at the venue decided to nix the show with some lame excuse about double booking which is too tawdry to go into here, the folks at www.jonsonfamily.com had a good rant about it, and rightly so. Anyway we still have our gig tommorow! So please come along if you're in town..
Tuesday 19th July
Betsey Trotwood Faringdon, it's Thee More shallows headlining, with Rothko, and us opening, I would assume we'll be on around 8.15 or so, so it's an early one!
Here's some details as to how to get there (with the current tube problems).
The Betsey Trotwood, 56 Farringdon Road, London, EC1R 3BL.
Farringdon tube station: the only line currently running through the
station is the METROPOLITAN LINE (the metropolitan line is however not
running between Moorgate and Aldgate). The Circle line and Hammersmith &
City line are suspended.
However, there are other fully functional tube stations close to the
Betsey Trotwood. The closest are Chancery Lane and Blackfriars, both of
which are only a 10-15 minute walk from The Betsey Trotwood.
Chancery Lane is on the Central Line. Exit the station and head east
(towards Holborn Circus). Turn left on to Chapterhouse Street, then
left when you get to Farringdon Road. The Betsey is 5 mins up the road on
Blackfriars is on the District line. Take Exit 1 out of the station,
and walk up New Bridge Street. New Bridge Street turns into Farringdon
Road, so just keep going straight ahead until you come to the Betsey on
your right, opposite the Guardian building.
Thameslink: Thameslink services are running normally into Farringdon.
See http://www.thameslink.co.uk for more information.
Bus: Bus services in the area are running normally, see

Hopefully we'll see you there. Things we have been liking these past weeks, a whole bunch of boot sale vinyl Jane found, including a Tyger's of Pan Tang 7" with them doing "love potion no. 9". the wreck of Old 98 album. The Hold Steady's new record "separation sunday" on french kiss, which is amazing! The Tom Vek single that's on the radio, the superwolf album which i have finally got around to giving a good listen, and Piers' just bought the new Hood album and "Secret Wars" by Onieda. We have our fingers on the pulse of a couple of months/ years ago! TA TA ian
