Right you rotten lot,

Gideon Coe was good enough to play Scuttle on his show again tonight - cheers fella!

But this is the news we want to tell you about:

That's right, we're gonna have a good time. We're gonna have a party. In Nottingham And you're invited. You'll be able to buy a copy of the EP a good 3 weeks before its official release date and we have a couple of surprises up our sleeves. Come! It'll be awesome!

Oh, and after that we'll be heading out on the road around the UK with copies of the EP (and hopefully some super-snazzy t-shirts) in tow:

01.06.12 | Spanky Van Dykes, Nottingham | EP Launch Party with Azores, Nordenfelt & Forever Sound
02.06.12 | UK Tour darn sarf - get in touch!
03.06.12 | Power Lunches Arts Café, London | w/ Verity Susman (Electrelane), Sacred Paws & Flamingods

As you can see, we've got a couple of gaps that we're trying to fill... we have things in the works, but if you're interested in helping us out, get in touch - we'd love to hear from you. You may have noticed from the videos of our performances at the Music Exchange and Holy Smokes! that we don't even need a PA!

Oh, and we'll be doing a couple of fantastic shows later in the month:

We had a great time on Saturday basking in the sunshine as we played our first ever outdoor show at Derby's Holy Smokes "Let's Get Lost" Weekender. Cheers to Jay and all the bods behind Holy Smokes for inviting us to play a load of songs and confuse the hell out of passers-by, skateboarders and small children on scooters. It also gave us an opportunity to unwittingly (almost) recreate the inside sleeve from ZZ Top's 'Tejas'. Awesome.

By the way, if you didn't go, you missed RM Hubbert (again) and Aidan Moffat. Bloody hell.

Oh, and Dean Jackson and the BBC Introducing team were good enough to play "Horse" from our forthcoming TEAPOT EP on BBC Nottingham/Derby/Leicester on Saturday night. Thanks guys! You can have a listen here - it's the first song after the news and weather. Just the way we like it.

More news and details of our EP launch party and UK tour very soon, but until then, enjoy:

Aye up,

We woke up this morning to discover that the wonderful Gideon Coe played "Scuttle" from our forthcoming TEAPOT EP (Hello Thor) on his BBC 6Music show last night. Cheers fella! You can listen back to his show for another few days (and fast-forward onto 1hr 56mins) by digging it out of iPlayer.

We were going to announce this as a world premiere, but then we remembered that Anders had snuck a little something into the background of an interview in this... busted!

We've had a few enquiries since the radio play about accessing Scuttle online... so far we're holding back on putting it and the title track of the EP up until we're a little closer to the launch date of Monday 25th June, but as soon as we've got everything sorted out we'll put it all up for pre-order.

In the meantime, follow us on Facebook or subscribe to this here blog and we'll guarantee you get the latest news on new tracks... and of both a super-special LAUNCH PARTY and UK tour at the start of June - more of which very soon, but check our shows page for a quick preview!

Fresh off the back of 3 glorious nights with our fab friends Papier Tigre (still on tour in the UK! Check 'em out!), the highly excellent Holy Smokes collective in Derby have invited us to play their LETS GET LOST festival on Saturday 12th May, alongside the likes of Aidan Moffat, Blanck Mass and RM Hubbert - who had the Chameleon, Nottingham in the palm of his hand when he played with us last Friday.

The whole day is a glorious collection of alternative music, art and film in the unorthodox setting of one of the world's first factory buildings situated in the centre of Derby, UK. The Holy Smokes guys have asked us to do something a little different, so - weather allowing - you'll find us opening the day for all you lucky, lucky people at midday on Cathedral Green.

Come say hi!
