In other news we were back in the rehearsal room today and there's a lot of good stuff going. Jeion and I have some lovely new peddles we've been playing with which are really helping produce a much richer and full sound.
This week i've been listening lots to Baltimore's finest Steve Hefter and Friends of Friends, as well as our good and incredibly talented friends Haunted Stereo. Definitely worth checking both out.

I think our brand of euphoric pop came as a bit of a surprise to the non-So Say So audience, given that the two support bands languish in that ‘oi, oi’ lad rock indie scene that the guardian seems to insist is out the window (see pidgeon detectives/kaiser chiefs/kasabian for reference (and no, I wont be linking to them)). But regardless the gig went ace and the sound and lighting people were lovely.
Unfortunately our show last night meant we couldn’t make it to our friends Televised Crimewave’s single launch but they’re very good and we encourage you to have a listen…and repeat.
Next Thursday (26th) we’re playing Jamboree in Limehouse which I’m led to believe is a swell warehouse conversion type venue. This will be our last gig for a month or two as we’re heading back into the rehearsal rooms to concentrate on writing. We’re also looking to get a few new synths so expect fireworks come May/June.

Friday 14 November – Luminaire, Kilburn,
