So Spring is finally springing (kind of) so time for a quick update.
A couple of reminders of upcoming gigs:
12th April – The Wheatsheaf, Oxford
1st May – The Dublin Castle, London
Go to the gigs page for more details and ticket links.
And, as usual, I’ve been unable help myself from tinkering with other people’s tunes so there are 3 new remixes due out in the very near future. An exact date for the release of the Coloureds remix will follow soon but the Listing Ships and Buildings On Fire remixes will be streamable from Monday. I’m hoping that we’ll have some brand new original material to play you soon but that’s taking a bit longer to put together than I originally hoped. But it will emerge soon, trust me.
Until then, here’s a new track to tide you over.
Until next time…
You can’t get enough of us playing live right? Good. We’ve got 2 more gigs to announce:
- Sat 2nd June – Mates N Dates fundraiser (acoustic set), OU Club, Oxford
- Tue 5th June – Beacon Festival, Hill Farm, Watlington
More info and ticket details for both gigs on our gigs page.
BTW cheers to every that came to see us at The Cellar as part of the Oxford Punt! Great evening had by all!
If you follow Tiger Mendoza on twitter this probably isn’t really a surprise but I can confirm that Michael from The Half Rabbits and Asher Dust will be joining us live on stage for our set as part of this year’s Oxford Punt. Here’s a lovely picture of the two of them together:
There are a few all venue punt passes available for £8 from here and this month’s Nightshift includes a full run down of the night. This is gonna be a riot! See you there yeah?
Click here to buy all venue Punt Passes (TM)
And here’s some promo stuff.
We’ll be doing some new songs live for the first time and some new takes on older stuff. And it’s free entry. Oh yes.
So the bandages are off a little later than planned but here’s the new look site. Not a much different I suppose but definitely better. Hopefully there will be more frequent, smaller posts and obviously we’ll share news about upcoming gigs, music and stuff.
A few “quick wins” as they say in business:
We’re also working on some brand new tracks and hopefully we’ll be playing some bits and pieces at the upcoming shows. Which is nice.
See you all soon
Well, that was fun. Cheers to everyone that came to the O2 for this gig and for everyone that showed their support before and after. Also a massive thanks to DJ Shadow and the team for having us. It’s safe to say that it was a pretty amazing night on many different levels.
We’ve got some pictures from the night up here. There are also a few more up on Facebook here and here.
We’ll be looking for more gigs next year and there will be new music sooner rather than later. There’s one other thing to come before the year’s out. More on that soon.
The title says it all really. It’s fair to say we’re pretty amazed. The show’s on Thursday 8th December. We’re on when the doors open first so get there early!
Here’s a link to get tickets. See you there yeah?

First off THANK YOU to everyone that came down to the O2 show a couple of weeks ago. It genuinely was a LOT of fun and we got to play with a lot of other brilliant electronica based bands from Oxford. That and playing the tunes on that p.a. was pretty amazing. There should be some highlights from the night plus maybe even an interview on tomorrow night’s BBC Oxford Introducing. There should also be some pictures from the show up soon too.
So on to new ventures. On Saturday 21st October Oxjam takes over Oxford for 2 days of gigs around the town and we’re happy to say we’ll be playing not 1 but 2 shows on the same day. Crazy. Show times and locations are:
3:45pm – O3 Gallery
6:45pm – Modern Art Oxford
It’s great to see Oxford really get involved in Oxjam and we’re really happy to be a part of it considering how much fun last year‘s show was. Go to the gigs page for more info. Here’s a link to the official Oxford Oxjam site.
We are working on some new music (including and ACE collaboration with Death of Hifi and Asher Dust), a couple of which you would have heard at the O2 Academy gig if you were there. There’s still some stuff to finish off so we’re not to sure on when it’ll be out but hopefully soon. Follow twitter for more regular updates.
There is also one more HUGE thing that we’re close to confirming. I don’t mean to tease (ok, maybe a bit) but trust me, it’s pretty immense…
