Big up to the east of England, Piers and I just spent a fruitful weekend bringing the duo style econoline to suffolk and Norfolk, whilst enjoying the comforts of east anglia of an evening. Thanks must go out to Beat Motel zine
in Ipswich and Wombat Wombat
in Norwich for their respective all dayer organisational skills. Thanks must also go to the metereological conditions over the weekend and their clemency yesterday which enabled us to sit my the seaside and eat our packed lunch before going to mix four tracks with Mr Steven Ansell, of Blood red shoes
soon to be fame. They sound great and we're also very pleased with our home recorded stuff, the four songs off the shirt EP (re mixed and mastered), and six more songs that we recorded ourselves, so that's looking like an album right there, details to follow. We have two more shows coming up GIGS
