No one blogs anymore. I just do this on here because its
easier to edit than on those facebook update things. Not that
anyone reads either of those things. I'll try and keep it short.
October- we went on tour. Sadly due to various reasons (out of
our hands) we had to cancel half the fucking tour so it ended up
being like 3 dates or something. However brighton, chichester and
Kingston all treated us very well. We met some awesome people and
played with some awesome bands. Other than that we did nothing but
work and get drunk.
November- We just got back from recording our mini album on
friday. We Spent the whole week working at serafina studios in the
small town of Eastbourne with the lovely Nick Kinnish. I won't bore
you with a studio diary cause without pictures those things are
shit. We didn't do much besides track our instruments really fast
so we could go back on the internet and play farmville. We stayed
with a lovely family who looked after us so nicely and everyone
there were so welcoming and treated us like we weren't dicks.
Anywho, we're getting the masters back to us on monday and I CAN'T
WAIT. I have one song on my laptop for various reasons and i just
want to send it to everyone but i can't. This week we'll be sorting
out the release date, artwork and touring details for the record. I
can't tell you much more right now than the mini album is going to
be 7 songs long. I can't even tell you the name of it. cause we
don't know it ourselves yet.
NEXT UP- in like 2 weeks we're getting t-shirts, i'm sure if
you're interested enough to read this you would have seen the
t-shirt design. They're limited to 25 and believe me, it looks like
they've already sold out but not officially so y'all just gonna
have to be quick now! Then in like 3 weeks time we're off on tour
with Battle For Paris again. More on that soon!

September was a really quiet month for us really. We were
meant to be on tour with Easy Hips but for various reasons it
We did however manage to fit in a couple of gigs in september
, the first being Offset. Our set as such wasn't great but we met
easy hips and tonnes of other great bands. Offset was an awesome
weekend but i think we could have enjoyed it more had we not had
such a long weekend.
It started on Friday afternoon, we're driving down to
brighton to play the freebutt w/ Easy Hips as a warm up for offset.
We were grabbing a lift from the singer of
Gambardella, however 10 minutes after leaving my house, still in
Winchester, we manage to (not our fault) crash into the car infront
of us leaving mazz's car looking like this:
Anyway my dad gives us a lift to offset,we play and get very
drunk all day and i pretended to be from the futureheads to get
some free beer ( i don't they believed me but i guess it was just
to get rid of me) Sunday was awful, the bands on that day were the
ones i actually wanted to see but i managed to catch some sort of
death cold (turned out to be swine flu) so i spent most of the day
(and the next 7 days after that) wanting to die.
The other gig we managed to play was just eventful. 21st
September i wake up and theres a text from my mate who's new
clubnight started that night and he didn't have any bands so he
asked if we could play. "well, i might as well, help a mate out" i
thought to myself. I wish i hadn't. We got there, the PA was
appauling ( we ended up doing our set instrumental). So we set up
in our corner there were definitely people there, but there was A)
no where for them to stand and watch the bands (theres a wall that
divides the room into bar/"music venue") and B) they were not
interested in seeing music. The owner complained twice about the
noise during our set we then went on to be stroppy teenagers and
got very shitty about the venue, owner and the people that were
there. So we got banned. SO BASICALLY NO ONE EVER, EVER GO TO THE
So in our time off since then we've managed to: finish
writing the mini-album, Tom passed his driving test, I got a job
(tom's on his way too), started sorting t-shirts for december tour,
started writing for the BFP split. More on all this soon...
Right it's october now, we've got some siiiiiiiiiiiiick gigs
this month, here they are (can we call it a tour?!):
see you there yeah?!

this week has been an emotional one for us, all our friends
have left us for university and we're sitting at home doing shit
all looking like idiots. We're desperately trying to save so we can
record our mini album in November. Despite both being unemployed we
will, thanks to the government and various temping jobs, manage to
get the money (so Nick, if you're reading this... don't worry).
We're going into the studio with Nick Kinnish @ Serafina Studios
and we're so pleased to be able to go to such an awesome studio
with an awesome producer who's worked with some awesome bands
(Architects, blakfish, colour, youves, Data select Party) so we'll
know it'll at least sound good sonically!
Speaking of DSP, they announced they broke up the other day.
Majorly sad about that, that band has sound tracked my summer since
i was in year 10.
But yeah, in other us-related news we've got an averagely
busy October. Next week we're putting the finishing touches (and by
that i mean i actually start learning them) to 3 new songs for the
mini album. We shall then be demoing them the week after, we're
also going to be recording a very special cover which should be
featured on the Holy Roar Xmas Tape. We should also be having our
first(of many) naked photo shoot. More details on how you can get
your grubby mitts on those pictures ASAP! we SHOULD then be going
on tour but I'm not sure how likely that is at the moment. we'll
see how it goes.
also if you can't possibly wait to hear the mini-album we're
releasing a split EP with the lovely Battle For Paris in December.
This'll also be on sale on our tour in December. It'll be limited
to 50 copies all handmade by yours truly, all exclusive tracks, and
super cheap so make sure you get yourself one when its out!
riiiiiiiiiight, i have cramps in my hand from typing so much.
shall update you lot soon on whats going with us.

Hello Boys and Girls,
right we've been sitting on two songs to release as a 7"

it's going to be released by Holy Roar Records in either late
august or early september. In Case you haven't heard of Holy Roar

Featuring miniature spazz-drums-bass-indie-freakout kids Run,
Walk!, OTT Bucket Full Of Teeth-esque drum machine screamo from Le
Swing, nudity-loving Brighton ROCKIN screamo tykes Easy Hips and
finally hipster grind rockers Dreamboats, this is looking like 6
tracks of some of the most promising UK bands that remember golden
eras for screamo and noise-rock. Limited to 320 copies in Holy Roar
packaging, this will be out in Aug/Sept. You can listen to clips of
all bands on our myspace or download the mp3 that has clips of all
To celebrate this we're going to posting both of our newest
