Hello all,

We’re very pleased to tell you we are playing the beautiful Halifax Piece Hall for the one-off – A Beautiful Day Out festival on Saturday 29 June.

It’s a privilege to have been asked to do this by our friends The Levellers. Also on the bill are our other friends Terrorvision, plus Ferocious Dog.

Get hold of tickets soon cos I’m pretty sure this will sell out.

Speaking of selling out, our Manchester gig in April is totally out of tickets. And the others are not far behind. So please get hold of a ticket if you want to come. It’s always good to instil a bit of confidence in the promoters when we sell advance tickets.

Cheers all and see you in the Spring.



Happy new year!

Two things – Rarities is now up for purchase/streaming on your favourite local purchase/streaming site.

Second thing – we are going on tour in 2019. Here’s the dates and the ticket links.

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.

See you down the front (and/or at the bar)
