The Scottish dates will be with the wonderful Powderkeg and Paul Morricone And Con Medicine (the exciting new solo project from Scaramanga Six bloke Paul), and the English dates are with our old pals The Scaramanga Six.
These are likely to be our only headline gigs this year, so don’t hesitate in copping hold of those tickets.
We’ve got the very last few of the previously Pledge-only ‘Japan’ shirts up there (we always hold a few back in case of any going missing in the post). PLUS for the first time our double-CD ‘Rarities’ album is available EXCLUSIVELY at our shop.
Also back in stock at reduced prices are the signed lithoprints at a bargain £5 each (inc UK postage) or £7 for each one, and the DVD for just £6 (inc UK postage). Plus a load of discount combo deals etc.
Buying direct from us is the best way to support our funny little band, so if there’s anything you want, now’s the time to go have a look.
Cheers for the continued support, and hope to see you at the gigs in September.
Saturday 15 September – Leeds Brudenell Social Club
That’s it for this year, barring any major changes. We had made an announcement to Pledgers about some other gigs, but due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to pull them. Refunds should have gone through now – get in touch if they haven’t. Sorry about that, we’ll be North of the Border next year, hopefully.
This is all to celebrate the release of our new album VICTORIES, which some of you Pledgsters have already copped hold of. The general release will be on Friday 7 September. Excellent.
Hope you are all good – see you in September. Ticket sales are fast already, so hurry up and get a ticket if you want to come.
There’s already been a bunch of videos from the studio, as well as a four-track Yorkshire covers EP and a taster EP from the accompanying album Rarities, which is full of unreleased stuff from our decade of being a band. Coming soon(ish) is a Live EP and some Q&A vids.
I’m no good at the hard sell, and it’s not really our style, but if you like this kind of thing, and you like supporting DIY underground music, you could do worse than getting involved in our Pledge campaign.
Oh, and 10% of what we make is going towards our friend Scott Sorry’s medical fees fund. Scott was the bass player in Amen, The Wildhearts and Sorry and The Sinatras, and he’s recently been battling a brain tumour. Because he lives in America, his medical fees have been astronomical, so lots of people are helping him raise some cash to pay for that, and to pay for lost earnings. Scott’s one of the good ones, so we’re helping him out too.
