Archive for August, 2011
Plenty summertime fun has been had since the last missive, and there’s still a bit more to be wrung out of it in the next couple of weeks. Ibiza was a huge laugh, the PA went well on the radio and we had a great time playing in the Red Room at Space (thanks to Jaymo and Andy George)
Since then we’ve played in Portugal by the sea, Zurich by a lake and Crickhowell by some hills.
The Greenman festival was brilliant and a fitting debut for our BUNGA BUNGA parties with Jim and Severino Horsemeat. (Keep em peeled for news of the next one)
We were interviewed for the Guardian music podcast, and you can hear that here
This Friday we are playing at Corsica Studios for the launch of our dear friend Toddla T’s new album. Zed Bias is doing an old school garage set, Martelo’s in the building and there’s UK soul sirens wahey with Shola and Terri Walker representing. Rodney Manuva was supposed to be playing too but can’t now. His shoes will be ably filled by Jonathan More of Coldcut. GIRLS MUSIC all night long.
On Saturday we’re off up North to Creamfields to play on the Annie Mac presents stage at 5.30.
Sunday I’m playing cricket, then Monday I’ll be playing at a Snowbombing related party at the carnival. If I can get my hands on the flier for that I’ll stick it up.
Loads more forthcoming, not least Bestival and the Warehouse Project.
BE STRONG EVERYONE!
August is looking like this…
We have our jolly @ Green Man on Aug 19th, Death Disco in Glasgow in the 20th, album launch party runnings with Toddles @ Corsica Studios on the 26th, Creamfields on the 27th but first there’s the RADIO 1 weekend in Ibiza.
We’re doing a PA of Bearhug LIVE pon the wireless on Friday night around 8 (Hello Mum!) then it’s off to bathe in calamari before playing at Space later in the night.
Love is lovely and war is ugly xxx
