Here’s a wee vid film at the recent show in Napier by Vorn I believe – ta.
It’s a newish song called Useless Shoplifter that is about to be recorded for the new album.
Many thanks to all the fine folk in Sydney for the organising, attending and encouraging at the 3 shows we have just played.
The Record Crate, in Glebe, on Friday was grand…who knew the pub owner was an old boy from Palmy, the apple don’t fall far. Huge thanks to Pale Heads from Melbourne, Dead Farmers, and Yes, I’m Leaving for letting us jump on the bill.
Saturday was the Sydney Anarchist book fair after party, rocking away in the shop window at Jura Books. The photo to the right is a sculpture in the Addison Rd Community Centre, where the bookfair was held this year – a fantastic space reclaimed from a once-upon-a-time army barrack site.
And Sunday at Black Wire in Annandale – hard to believe it’s been 4 & 1/2 years since our last show there – great to see it still going and great to see the line up – Arafura, Twinrova and Ted Danson with Wolves
We’re very happy to be promoting this wee project. On the cusp of heading to Australia tomorrow for three shows, honing the playing in preparation of recording in a couple of weeks, with the ultimate aim of releasing the new album maybe mid-Septemberish, we wish to announce the following companion project.
The new album ‘It’s All Over’ is shaping up to be quite exciting ladies, gents and every other valuable human. ‘It’s All Over’, is the working title of the next 11 songs to be captured to digital format, will be recorded again with Mike Gibson who recorded the last album Transit, and let loose into the world. These are tales of invisible histories, entities real and imaginary, victories real, successes dubious and realities and lives defined by the margins they exist in.
And we reach out to all you interested readers and listeners to help with our crowd funding efforts. We are self funding the recording to the best standard we can, the production of the physical product is what we’re asking help with. And we’re dishing out the rewards/gifts for those willing to participate, please jump to the Pozible site to explore in depth.
We have played with crowdfunding in the past, and it’s been a lot of work but also enormous fun. It seems to be a brilliant platform for connecting with others interested in supporting what we do. It’s an interesting thing, from a musicians perspective, to already have generated interest and commitment from interested listeners BEFORE an albums released, a hum is created and this generates further motivation and commitment to the project.
So we thank you in advance for the participation. And if you are not in a position to financially contribute, then no worries, these are tough times, the album will be available soon enough via bandcamp to stream, perhaps you can simple share across your online networks. We will be most appreciative.
With our utmost thanks in advance.
But we are very pleased to say, hooray, we’re going back to Sydney, very soon…this weekend!
