We’re delighted to be supporting the wonderful Beccy Owen on the 29th of March at The Hothouse in Morecambe - tickets via the link etc etc
We have a ‘greatest bits’ album in the works (out soon! etc etc) & choosing the ‘best’ songs was very difficult. They’re like children i.e. a pain in the arse.
Here are the songs that ultimately failed their 11-plus but show some basic ability.
Collected and collated for your aural pleasure.
Please adopt them.
playing at the Golden Lion in Lancaster on the 20th March - probably with a full band for some ‘invisible ray’ numbers, plus our new James Bond cover. Be great to see you there, who knows when we’ll meet again?
Our debut performance of ‘a friend worth the name’ captured on Super 8. Twinkly and electrified, rather nice. Four ruddy years ago which is scary.
I don’t know why I bother. Worry myself to death. Trying to please one or the other, when you’re just like all the rest.
Back streaming: the solo bedroom version of our doom-laden cathartic classic (2 per customer)
I promised myself I’d practice piano every day in 2014, so here I am with added singing. A song from our ‘brown cafe at 3am’ album: ‘goodbye (not)’
Already attended my first funeral of 2014 and this song inevitably bobs to the surface…
Kindly overdubbed by the one and only Pocket God - Mark Christopher Lee.
Worth a pop, no?

I played with the legendary Pocket Gods last year down in St Albans, and very merry it was too, in all senses of the word. At the end of the night Marky asked Els and I to play a Low Country song so we chose one of our faves, the drunken country lament ‘drown’.
Luckily (for us) DigThisReal filmed it :)
First song ‘saved’ at the rather fine Cafe AMI in Antwerp a few weeks back. Filmed by Bert M. D’hooge.
Within 30 seconds there’s dancing, of a sort….
Listening to the 8-track recording of this song and yesterday and, out of simple curiosity, remixed a stripped back version, letting the voices and banjo shine through. Hope you like.
Wes Martin on banjo btw.
