Sun Studio session in Memphis and Launchin things

As I type, Gavin drummer boy has 15 stitches in his forehead and that’s not because he didn’t do the washing up at his mums. It was more of a sidewards horizontal bike dismount in the wet, involving a wall and his noggin. Prior to the incident, we had a cracking (no pun intended) show in Barsley at the ever awesome BOMfest. Saw some great underground music and then threw a few shapes in the jungle/dubstep tent during which time we became surrounded by the pigs.

Apart from Stay Calm almost becoming Stay Clam, the new album discs turned up a coupla weeks after the launch gig in top shape and we are reet proud. Cheers to everyone who came to FRUIT for our launch, it was a top night indeed.
If yer wanna get hold of the disc or download the album, just go to the man made shop or the crash tested shop.

I was recently lucky enough to spend a week or so in Memphis at the Stax music academy working with some awesome people including Ralph Sutton (Prince, Stevie Wonder, Rick James) and was treated to an impromtu lesson in off the hook jazz wizardry by the sax legend Kirk Whalum. I managed to record an new track in the legendary Sun Studios, with the talented Phil Codd supporting on the studio’s old B3 Hammond organ. It was the place where Johnny Cash and Elvis sang… The song will be ready as a freebie for y’all soon.

The Drummer's Cracked Noggin

We are playing at Hull’s Adelphi club on 5th August and releasing Glamorous Cake Stall Holder as a charity single to raise money for Cardiac Risk In the Young. We are supported by the reet good Hillbilly Troupe. Cheers x
