And following that brush with stardom? what next? Why... a set in a tiny tea tent at Leamington Peace Festival of course!!...
As always seems the way, what began with a less that salubrious setting with the prospect of an audience of a couple of grannies having a cuppa, turned into a great little gig that we all really enjoyed! couple of pictures to follow....
You've never seen Hobbit so up for a gig! He did a solo section and a new loopstation tune which went on for nearly 20 mins on his own! The people of Leamington certainly seemed to enjoy themselves, and we could get Tea on tap as and when we wanted it - what a great show!!....
enough of an update for now - there'll be more of the same in the next 24 hours to catch up with the rest of our goings on..... promise!!....

Ladies & Gentlemen... we know it's been a while, and some of you have been incredibly patient as you've awaited the arrival for many years now, but The Album is here.
We struggled over the idea of titles, and one or two people gave some interesting ideas ("Straight Outta Gloucester" etc) but seeing as we kept calling it The Album and people kept saying "When's The Album coming out?" it seemed to make sense, as well as the fact that we've been cobbling it together and have got 2 EPs and a Live Recording to our name... so this one now fits as the culmination of all those other songs we've written & discarded or lost, and is a volume of songs & skits hich kind of add together with the other recordings as a full picture of what we're like & how we've developed from a little trio playing a couple of songs I'd written on my own to a fully rounded live act with a full peformance to grace the biggest stage or the smallest living room!...
So these songs cover topics from funerals to imaginary friends, from superheroes to trying to get things right, from failed relationships to Gingers... and we've taken care to make them a bit fuller than we might on stage, but not wanted to overproduce stuff too much... we wanted it to be a bit of a mirror to what we're like really. Also we wanted to ensure that the artwork was as good as the songs - huge thanks to Ben who took some live photos of us which look great, as well as Sammy Borras (www.mangazebra.co.uk) who drew some ace cartoons a whole year ago and that I genuinely love!
So that's the plan - great tunes that we hope you'll love in a package that we hope we'll love too!
if you want one? you'll have to either get a CD at a show (including the album launch on 1st April) or download it from our bandcamp site (i'll send more details as soon as I can)
Keep your peepers peepin and we'll let you know what's happening
Much Love & Excitement
