We're playing with La Shark!
And good people have been saying good things about them:
The most extraordinary band I've heard in a long time, called Gaggle... With a name like Gaggle they're going to be good, right? They are. They're brilliant." "YOU HAVE BEEN GAGGLED" HUW STEPHENS (BBC - Radio 1)
"Gaggle - the most exciting, innovative and genuinely imaginative force at large in music right now. More infectious than a mnemonic plague (ahem) and going off with the full force of Blondie's 'Atomic', they sound like 10,000 MIAs - and we bet they don't kiss nice." REBECCA ROBINSON (NME)You can get tickets from HERE, or RSVP for the event on facebook HERE

These guys are huge at the moment and have worked with so many good bands including Arctic Monkeys, The Get Up Kids, White Denim, Lightspeed Champion, This Town Needs Guns, Rolo Tomassi, and I could go on and on and on. It's a real honour to be included in their roster.
As always, much love.

I used to live with the lovely Lu Flux who is an ethical designer extraodinaire. She works only with salvaged, vintage or organic fabrics, using traditional methods such as knitting, pleating or patchwork to design incredibly beautiful bespoke pieces. Fashion week has gone swimmingly for Lu so congratulations to her.
Just look at these:
To say our old friend Alex Turvey is destined for great things is doing him a diservice, as he basically already doing them. An incredibly talented designer/director he has made music videos for the likes of Bright Eyes, Grizzly Bear, MSTRKRFT among many others, and continues to do design for basically everyone. But more importantly perhaps, he is like myself a Welsh/Greek Cypriot and everyone knows that's the best combination of races you could possibly have.
This wonderfully weird electro outfit are a joyous combination of so many different genres from tropical to carnival to pop to dance. and they're amazing! Hailing from Bow E3 via Crystal Palace our former neighbours are a firm favourite of Huw Stephens and are playing lots in the next couple of months, including some dates in Italy.
Their next gig is at Cargo on Friday 9 October supporting Bent. It is impossible not to have a good time when you see them and I thoroughly recommend that you do.
That's probably enough for you all for now to get inspired on for a friday. More soon, but in the meantime we continue to be humbled by the wonderfully positive feedback from everyone following our show on Monday. We have a number of great shows coming up, the next one being at the Hoxton Bar and Grill on the 8th October. We hope to see as many of you possible down there.
Don't forget to check out the new website as well as follow us on facebook or twitter.

As for the future, well we are playing with the excellent Exlovers at Hoxton Bar and Grill in a week or two, and after that with 4or5 musicians at the fly. We were scheduled to play with our good friends Thomas Tantrum and Haunted Stereo in November but unfortunately can't do that now. But regardless everyone should still go and see them as they're both blatantly amazing. Serious. Haunted stereo were Q's record of the day a couple of weeks ago and you wouldn't want to go and fuck off Q would you?
In other news the new website goes live in two days, or one day...it goes live Sunday. It should be pretty fancy I'm told and apparently this blog will appear on there as well. And if you're reading this post-sunday it is pretty fancy and this blog is on there/here...
This month I've been all over the show, drunk for a large part of it - but this weekend I will be at the The Victoria with my soul mates Televised Crimewave for it's one year birthday. it's free entry and should be the best fun.
