Beautiful I'm sure you'll agree. We're off to the Green Man Festival this weekend and have a gig on tuesday (see below for details), but next week we'll be sending off emails to the people who wanted one. In other news we've booked two studio sessions, one with steve Ansell in brighton, (ANALOGUE all the way) and one at Mute Studios for the hi tech' business, and in otherer news.. We have (hopefully) found a label to put out "this band isn't funny anymore". More news next week! Plus a full report and some pictures from a weekend of beards and cider..
Good Things this week, Florence, (Dave and Nicola's baby), Des Ark's new mini album, "loose lips sink ships" Darren Baker from Solway fifths solo stuff. (check it, green man and attendant excitement, Ted Leo at the underworld last week (and hot snakes), the sneaky preview I got of Part Chimp covering Hawkwind and the fact that I have tickets to go and see the stooges in a week or so.

So yes we have details for the Derby Show in a week or two
THE SECOND NIGHT OF LOVELINESS 23/8
STEPHEN M. ROE
Free buffet and a fillum for all.
VIDA BAR, queen street, derby (opposite Derby Cathedral)
So, big thanks to Biff from the little Explorer/ Empemetry for sorting this out. I've been reliably informed that Stephen M. Roe's CDr "songs about maps" is a cracker.. We will have some CDr's of our new (REALLY NEW as in finished last weekend) material in fetching hand stitched sleeves.. they'll be £2 and if you leave a message here, (and you can now as I changed the settings so you don't have to be logged in).. we can also email you about getting them mail order.. the tracklisting will be a lucky dip of four tracks from the 8 or so we have finished. They're all hot off the laptop. Also if you run a record label (a nice one mind, you know what I mean).. get in touch with us.. we have a whole bunch of things which we'd like to talk about.
this weeks list of good things, Ben and Jerry's dublin mudslide ice cream, little cans of heineken shaped like beer barrels, this website and "Harvey Milk; the singles" album, now that's what I call harsh.
LOVE TO ALL

SOME CHEERFUL NEWS
a most excellent ukele, I can already play three chords.. so that's plenty to be going on with.
IN OTHER NEWS
We are keeping up our gruelling once a month gig schedule with another show
We don't know where yet, maybe we are just playing the whole of derby. I tell you one thing I do know though, it will rule.
EVEN OTHERER NEWS
The September shows with Mother Goose are being postponed, we are both going to wait 'til we have some new stuff out before we do tour. A shame but there you go!
City on film live in brighton last week, Bob Nanna doing "come on eileen" YES (I bought a t shirt), podcasts in general, and eat feed, morning becomes eclectic and skepticality in particular , and also the mounting excitement of GREEN MAN being only weeks away. HOORAY. Piers went to see the absentee play last week at the marvellous in the pines club and reported that they were ace, and he's also went to see them and the broken family band at the Spitz, and that was ace too, whilst at the weekend I went and bought House Tornado by the Throwing Muses (on vinyl), and the new Part Chimp record both (in different ways) are ace... Also good was Cove's Farewell to Pat gig, particularly when an errant member of Charlottefield fell off the bass amp whilst videoing the show, thus ending the song.. and the set, in style. .
