So after 9 weeks in the Australian wilderness, our lead guitarist "Big" Al has returned to these shores. We welcome him back with open arms. Further to this, our bass player (and brains of the operation) 24 Charlie Moore has moved back to Birmingham after three years studying in Cambridge (but not at Cambridge...) Our trumpet player, Mr Moosey Moo AKA Dr Trumpet is still AWOL in Samoa, but that will be resolved soon and we can get back to having some real fun!
Our next show is on Saturday 4th July in Cotteridge Park for CoCoMad Festival, you can check out the digital program for the festival here. CoCoMad is a small, independent and completely free community festival, now in its 19th year! We are also booked to play at our good friends Malarkey's album launch on the 17th July at our second home The Wagon and Horses on Adderley Street in Digbeth. We've waited years for the Malarkey album to be ready and can't wait for all the fun we'll have on the night! We may also have a few other gigs to announce for July, so keep an eye on what we're up to.
Some other news - we are featured in the latest issue of Do The Dog skazine, and must shout a big thank you to Kevin for his continued support. You can subscribe to the zine for just £5, it's always a great read! And on 30th May we received airplay on BBC WM Introducing again, for our track "Queens Head Hunter" - bringing the fire against dodgy promoters and polluting the airwaves!
That just about brings you up to date with what's happening with us, we have some wicked stuff planned for the next few months, with appearances at a couple of festivals and well known local all day events over the summer, we are also laying plans for the first ever Lobster club night which will be happening this autumn, and we start recording a few new tracks next weekend! After a few months of inactivity, suddenly we're about to get really busy!
