Hello!! Hello… Hi. Hey. Yo and yoohoo for all you milkshakers out there!!
What you all been up to??? We’ve been busy writing for the most part of the last few months, with the odd gig here and there thrown in.
We played at the Intrepid Fox as part of World Zombie Day! Was so much fun and we made loads of new zombie friends. ZOMBIES UNITE!! Brilliant. Great show for us. Thanks to everyone who came and dressed up and made loads of noise for us! We love you all. Eat our brains whenever you like. Thanks to the Intrepid Fox for having us on again!
We planned to all be together for 10 days in November and we started off the ‘guy love’ with a cool gig with our new buddies Orestea and Bear vs Rhino at Surya in London. Great night! Phrixus had the same shade of hair as the green haired beaut who fronts Orestea! So that was cool!! Here’s a link to a couple of songs at the beginning of our set; “Burning Skies” and “Roses Are Dead, Violets Are Too”. Apologies for the rubbish sound. It was recorded on a phone. But still fun. Enjoy -
We’ve also been writing and structuring some new songs, ready for the new album and upcoming gigs. Some exciting stuff coming out and being recorded in demo form. Here’s one that failed to make the cut on the new album but is still a contender to go into the new live set. Check it out here on our facebook
On Friday, we went out for our annual band meal at our usual Indian restaurant. We all laughed and drank and ate far too much! So much in fact that our trip to the pub afterwards ended up with us all falling asleep after one pint!!?!! So we all went home and climbed into the Never A Hero jumbo bed for some dreams and giggles. Kaji loves the big bed!! Lol. Here’s a photo of us before the yum yums!! -
Massive thank you to all our new Facebook and Twitter followers! Glad to meet you and share this world with you. Keep in touch. We’ll always try to get back to you if you have a question or anything. Love love.
A lot of table tonk has been played. We love table tonk. If anyone ever wants a game of it with us then let us know!! Tonk means tennis. And we bloody love it!!!
Had a rehearsal on saturday where we played a couple of new ones and went over our set a couple of times to make sure we’re still playing the same songs. Very excited about a couple of new ones because they are very fun to play. Just hope that they are fun for you guys listening to them too. We’ll see…! And we have another rehearsal next saturday where we will being doing some more new stuff. But we will also try to record a couple of acoustic versions of our songs for y’all. Something different to gape your ears around. May even film them so you can see us wiggle…!! Ha ha.
Yes. Just had to tell you all about the Never A Hero fart league! It goes by quality of sound AND amount of “air funs” performed. We’ve also been taking into account head shots and how accurate we can fire them out at another band member or members of the public. It is disgusting and awesome. Top of the league are Daisy and Phrixus who change position all the time as they always have a constant air stream. Third comes a surprise contender of Kaji, who did a headshot on a now scarred for life Phrixus. And had a couple of putts here and there. Fourth is Mickey Thin, who did one in bed the other night. Pathetic. But he does only do one a year and it comes out as green smoke. So it was nice to be there for it. Ha. And in fifth place is KB. With none. But he did have his botty sealed at birth…! So to join the league yourselves, send us your farts!! Lolzarooooooo. Ha ha.
So we have also just filmed a new music video for “Hollow Crow”. Very excited to see the outcome. Filmed by Chris Stockings -
Chris also filmed our “Burning Skies” video which we love. Thanks a lot Chris. Check it out if you haven’t seen it already -
At late notice we got hold of an absolutely stunning location. Marks Tey Hall!! Here’s a photo -
Big shout out and thank you to Austin Gilray who helped us massively in getting the location. Without him we would have probably not even had a location as magical as the one he found us. Austin owns a drum restoration company. Here’s a link to his Facebook page
Also want to thank Jack West for letting us use Marks Tey Hall. Great guy and helped us with everything we needed.
And definitely not forgetting Tom Hobbs. For being an actor for the day in the video. Great performance and a great friend to the band. Thanks Tom. He was also in our video for “Screams Of Silence” as the clown. You can check out that video here -
An amazing location where we didn’t need any lights because the sun helped us out so much. Check out this picture -
Thanks Sun!! Ha ha. We spent the day kicking up the dust so the suns rays looked even better. Although we did inhale and eat half of the dust and brought home the other half of it on our equipment. MMmmmmm…..
Phrixus has his birthday on Friday. So we’ll be having a fanta and a burger with him. Mickey Thin is off to Australia for the whole of December. Daisy is looking forward to Santa letting him sit on his knee, cos as you well know, a fart on Santa’s knee is worth 100 points in the league. Top in no time. KB is injured with a guitar strap burn on his shoulder. So he needs love! And Kaji loves his leather jacket potato!
Got a photo shoot on Saturday which should be fun. And we’ll keep writing our new album for you all. But remember you can still get hold of our debut album from -
Wishing you a lovely few weeks and we’ll keep you posted with what’s going on!!
Love you all and thanks for the support x x x x x
