Alternative Great Escape

“Tomorrow, tomorrow…bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, there’ll be synths…”

Please accept this serenade as a sign of our jittering nervousness and excitement, for what is to be our first live outing since the release of “Haunted Gold” – and, what better way to put our gold about, than to play the Great Escape in Brighton. Not only that, but any folks who happen to be gracing us with their finest dance moves will also get to hear us play the latest track we’ve recorded, “Spectre”. Jolly good. There are lots of other splendid bands on too, such as Labyrinth Ear, who are playing shortly before us. Naturally, the word ‘labyrinth’ conjures up images of David Bowie, which conveniently/tenuously leads us onto this lovingly prepared Great Escape preview from Breaking More Waves where we’re referred to as “eye candy”, a pair of optical Chupa Chups if you will. David Bowie cutout not included. Just as sweet though, is this preview-related prose from Just Music I Like concerning the acts that you should be checking out over the weekend plus this sexy pair of mentions from The Guardian Music Blog and Drowned In Sound. Thanks chaps, we owe you a shandy.

Last but not least, our man about Merseyside Mr. Pip has included “Once Upon A Time” in his latest Pipcast. Very nice of him too. Don’t forget you can still download the track for free from Amazing Tunes if you fancy a spot of heavy breathing of an evening…

See you at the short back and sides,

A Ghostly Figure…

This short blogual finds us grappling with concepts of sub bass ponder and the g-force of a chimp being shot from a cannon. “Why?”, you may ask yourself…and you may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?

The answer to at least one of those, can be found in the studio, where we have just finished recording a pipe-drenched newbie. The forthcoming track continues the theme of ghosts – not the kind with a sexy pottery wheel scene and Patrick Swayze, but the kind for whom business is not yet finished. It will be called “Spectre” and we’ll be posting up details of a release date and such over the coming months…

A different kind of “woooo” now, as we’d like to offer up our thanklets to these nice folks for showing “Haunted Gold” a bit of love; Woody @ Musika, Jo & Matt @ It’s My Kind Of Scene and Bertie, of the shoe variety (see page 14). You can also find out which one of us has never actually been to Paris, who secretly wants to play Grindcore to Edwardians and who, shamefully, owns the 7″ of Black Lace’s “Agadoo” in this bumper interview we did recently for It’s My Kind Of Scene. Righto, it may be time to get those backing vocals down from the scanner…
