Well, that was the tour. And we had the best time ever. Sold out four of the gigs. Rejuvenated our spirits even further than last year’s Pledge campaign. And ate some really good chips.
Thanks all for coming and seeing us. We had such an ace time. Big thanks to all the promoters, and those who helped promote it, either by putting up posters or simply sharing it around on their Facebooks and Twitters. We rely on you lot (maybe a bit too much) and appreciate everything hugely. And huge enormous thanks to our mate Matt, who helped us out with the driving and the loading, particularly for Wayne. Cheers Matt.
We’ve a couple of bits in the diary – including a slot at Camden Rocks at 2.30pm on May 31st, at the frankly massive Electric Ballroom, so please turn up early! And a warm-up for that the night before with a full set at Nottingham Maze. We’re just dotting the i’s on a couple of other bits which we will tell you about soon.
Finally, the remaining merch from the tour is available in the Shop section – that’s hoodies, beanies and the new ‘lightbulb’ t-shirt. Go have a skeg.
Looking forward to the next one immensely!

This weekend will go down in history as one of our finest and funnest weekends of all time. Leicester and London, both brilliant and both SOLD OUT. It’s been a long time coming and the result of a LOT of hard work that we feel might, finally, be paying off. So thank you ALL for coming – it has been truly brilliant.
We sold out of a bunch of merch stuff this weekend – we’ll get the missing sizes online next week so do come back and check.
The final weekend of touring fun is this weekend – Manchester Gullivers on Friday (which is also sold out), Walsall Goldmine Centre on Sat and Bristol Louisiana on Sun. Our good friends Tropical Contact are coming along to open, so do get down early. They’ll all be great fun nights. Opening in Bristol is our pal Jon Poole (Cardiacs/Wildhearts), who will be joined by Chris Catalyst for a song or six, do NOT miss this. A few tickets are still available for both Walsall and Bristol.
That’s it for now…. hope to see some of you at the weekend. X

Pleased to announce that we’re doing this year’s excellent Camden Rocks festival, with The Blackout, Reverend And The Makers, Sonic Boom Six and our old pal Ginger Wildheart. We’re on at the Electric Ballroom at 2.30pm.
A couple of other gigs announced, including a handful of solo sets for Chris in Japan in June, supporting the Ginger Wildheart Band (double-bubble, then).
In other news, there’s a couple of pretty in-depth interviews with Chris here:

Gigs this weekend – Leicester (Friday) and London (Saturday).
See you there!
Thanks to ALL for the votes at the Pure Rawk Awards… we came out with Band Of The Year, Frontperson Of The Year and Album Of The Year! Our gasts were well and truly flabbered. Cheers!!
In other news, the tour has kicked off in typically brilliant fashion with a jaunt to the wonderful North. Newcastle was lovely and busy, Glasgow sold out and crazy and Edinburgh was busy and boozy too. Big thanks to promoters Kev, Mainy and Christian, and the other bands – Logoz, Supercharger, Party Asylum, Debrasco, Rank Berry, Shatterhand and Buzzbomb – and finally to the brilliant Kylie at the Bluebird Café on Cannonmills in Edinburgh, where we had an amazing lunch. We’ll be back up before you know it. Thanks so much, you make it all worthwhile.
Next up is Leicester and London – both are near to selling out, so head over to the Gigs page where you can pick up tickets. Week after is Manchester, Walsall and Bristol.
Finally, a few people have been asking about the new merch – the beanie hats, polo shirts, hoodies and shirts. We’re running low on a couple of the shirts, so do pick them up from the gigs to avoid disappointment. Whatever is left will go online after the tour finishes.
Cheers all! See you soon.
