Aye up,

We finished the Splish/Wet Dog 12" the other day. Ultimate satisfaction was achieved and the audio is currently being pressed to hot dripping black wax as we type. Wait 'til you hear the Wax Stag remix, it's a scorcher. We'll get some things online for your streaming pleasure a little closer to the launch date; until then you'll just have to wait...

IN THE MEANTIME, we have been busily pulling together plans to hire ourselves a van and undertake our first ever European Tour in May! Yus, that's right: what better thing to do than to pile yourself into a small vehicle with your closest friends and far too much heavy equipment and proceed to drive 4,000 miles across six countries in ten days? Odds are that we will lose our minds somewhere around the halfway mark and inexplicably kill each other, but we intend to counter the effects of BEING ON THE ROAD by investing in high-quality BOOZE, which will be used to numb our senses, fill up any remaining space in the van and inevitably guarantee a strip-search at the Swiss border. That's just how we roll.

These are the dates to commit to memory. There will be a test (and probably more detail about venues, promoters and door tax) in April:

24.05.13 | Brussels, Belgium
25.05.13 | Luxembourg
26.05.13 | Offenbach, Germany
27.05.13 | Zurich, Switzerland
28.05.13 | Orléans, France
29.05.13 | Montpellier, France 
30.05.13 | Bordeaux, France
31.05.13 | Nantes, France
01.06.13 | Rouen, France

Excited? You bet we are!

THIS IS THE NEWS: Splish/Wet Dog 12" on its way!


Christ, it's been quiet since a fantastic gig at the Sebright Arms in London, courtesy of those wonderful Burn The Jukebox fellas. Cheers lads, etc.

It's been so quiet because we've been locked away in the studio, putting the finishing touches to our next release... which will be a fancy black floor-filling disco-tastic 12" which will be HT016 on Hello Thor, to be released this summer, probably in early June.

Featuring two tracks produced by Fletcher & Wells (Nottingham's answer to Stock, Aitken and Waterman) and a remix by Wax Stag, this sensual slab of vinyl is krautrock taken to its illogical boogie conclusion. Ridiculous, but totally bangin'. Splish has been our set-closer for every gig we've played since we wrote it and is everyone's favourite song. Wet Dog is a jazz/dub/acid mongrel that confuses everyone but inspires love in that strange way that only slightly misshapen and quirky crossbreeds can. Both have received the magic Fletcher/Wells treatment, with Wax Stag weighing in his own version of Splish to up the stardust-sprinkled feeling. Needless to say, we're immensely proud of this one.

So we're going to have a party to celebrate it, joined by our good friends I Am Lono and The Cusp. Full details to be posted ASAP, but live! updates! for the event at the inimitable Chameleon Arts Cafe in Nottingham on Saturday 11th May can be found on ye Facebook...

And what after that? Well, we thought we might as well go and CONQUER EUROPE while we're at it. So look out for some TOUR DATES soon, yeah?
