More Sticky Love



We had the honour of playing with the best band in the world last night! I can't remember the last time i was so nervous before a show as i was last night while watching The Sticks.

Our old sparring partners La La Vasquez were amazing too! Their new songs are sounding great and their new shiny 7" out now is looking and sounding so good. BUY IT!!!

Imagine going to Brighton and not even getting to the beach or bringing home a stick of rock. Being back in Belfast sucks right now.

Release Parties




Anyone who has ordered our mini-album out next week on Tough Love will be glad to see that these are almost ready to go as can be seen here.

THESE ARE SOLD OUT IN THE UK. There are only a few final copies available to buy this Saturday night at the Stag's head in Dalston or else in Japan. (Yes, i know, very clich├ęd)

Also tomorrow night in Belfast we are throwing a party at The Menagerie to celebrate our EP out now on Captured Tracks - better late than never. The Not Squares dudes and J Carberry of Cheap Thrill will be playing records all night long! Details here.

Also thanks to everyone who bought records and shit from us last night in Dublin at the Dum Dum Girls show. We appreciate it so much!We had fun.

Norman says we're Hot Shit



Norman Records put us in the hottest shit category for this week which can only be a good thing. Read what they said about us here. I guess it's cool being compared to bands you've never heard of before!

So now we've finally got some records in our possession (thanks Captured Tracks!) we're putting a last minute release party together which is to be held in The Menagerie next Thursday evening(20th May). So far confirmed are Not Squares and Cheap Thrill DJs with more to be announced in the next few days! Spread the word and come down to buy some records so we can afford to go to England next weekend...

No Echo For Me Tonight

I shan't be going to see Echo and the Bunnymen tonight as it is sold out, no doubt to our great city's cultured elite. Oh No!
I'm mostly relieved, as a fan who has never seen them live, i'm worried it'll be rubbish (like most of these 'old bands' are) and Ian McCulloch just isn't the young, pretty and hip scally he once was:










Instead i think i'll just stick on Crocodiles and watch some of this...

We've done a split tape for Cass/Flick with Heavy Hawaii, who rule so that's nice. You can buy them individually here or as part of a special deal for a tenner where you also get the new No Monster Club tape (which is reeeal good) and one by boundary JIM (also good) all for a tenner including postage and downloads here, which is highly recommended. Here's vids from our tape:
