Now the football is over...

Semi-final night was gig night, a strange feeling knowing the set start time was dependent on extra time or penalties... Fred's Ale House was hosting Levy Festival and mindful of the result we played a mellower set than it might have been. Thanks to Dave for doing a superb job with the sound and to Fred's and the Levy Festival organisers for inviting us and Nina Gerstenberger for playing a superb opening set and to everyone that wanted to make their evening longer. Late start, late finish, great gig - thanks everyone.
Three songs on their debut

Leaf Blower
Day In Day Out

A first glimpse at the new single...

Test pressing arrived and approved, they sound great... so Production Is Go, and we will have a new 7inch double-A-side single. Yes, with a download option too.
Full colour label and picture sleeve in the production run; white labels are to test the metalwork for the pressings and these sound sweet; the Rickenbacker crunches and chimes, the Hofner violin bass does its punchy thing in the lower stave and the drums bang in a big way, with really immediate vocals. Excellent presence. Its got a live sound like we're actually in the room, ...which we were when we were listening to it. Music is a physical presence and that's why we make physical music, independently with our own label.

Single release date is still to be confirmed, depending on actual production time and there is a release party gig to be announced too.
All releases are exciting, but...
This one is a bit special for another reason too... more on that later...

with In Deed and Weimar in Aatma


Aatma on wednesday bounced nicely with a vigorous gig, thanks again to Eddy for sitting in on drums... and it's all eyes on the new stuff now; four new songs we haven't started on, two we've touched and another we had to leave aside but are coming back to... plus another twelve with titles waiting to be written... busy times ahead
Meanwhile
It's easter - be like the rebel bunny, be free.

to thing two on Radio On too

The second part of the Radio On interview with John, and loads of music, repeated daily at different
times every day for a month: As the station guide says - "People working in the street, a new gas pipe, a van parked, doors open, loud techno for everyone. What a relief to put on headphones and listen to the new Lord Litter show. Songs in every graduation, introverted, nostalgic, fun, loud, weird and a nice interview over a cup tea to round it off. You don't find people irking in your street everyday of course, but if you'd like to take a holiday from your daily environment then this show is the place to go."
