Someone’s Been Shopping! I got a new guitar amp today and I can’t wait to use it with the band. We’re finishing off our long overdue album and the recording process has exposed to me just how truly awful my old guitar amp was. When you’re only a 3 piece band the guitar sound can make or break the things. This could be a big upgrade all round.
It’s a Fender HotRod Deluxe for any guitar geeks out there. The valves sound beautiful and now I just need to sort my pedals out.
Exciting times ahead :)

Tonight we did our first rehearsal after over a month off. OK so there were times when we sounded a little rusty but overall it was great. We’ve still got it haha :)

Stay tuned for more news about the album coming soon. Long awaited. It’s good to be back in the saddle. We’re discussing names and artwork for it at the moment. Can’t wait for everyone to hear it.

Stay lucky folks, see ya,

Hi, it’s been a while hasn’t it? What you been up to? New hair? Looks good. What have we been up to you ask? Well, I’m glad you did.

We’ve been working hard on our long awaited live album. We had the final session for a while tonight while drummer extraordinaire Ross “no jabs” Welsh goes off to Cambodia. We’ve got all the sessions recorded though and now we can work on it while he’s away. We should be releasing in early September after he gets back. Can’t wait.


We hope you’ll all love the songs as much as we do. More info to come in the next few weeks. All those people who pre-ordered a copy don’t worry. We got your back. Keep an eye out for the postman, it won’t be long.

We’ll be in touch :)

Thanks to everyone who came down to the Cavern last night. We had a blast. Hopefully you did too :) Someone drew a picture while we were on stage! Never had that happen before. Will post it later.
