Next gig: Those Unfortunates vs The Casual Sexists

London town’s Those Unfortunates and New York City’s Casual Sexists go head to head on Saturday 12th August, at the Stag’s Head in Hoxton. Thrill to their crooked, jagged, wonky pop, and go throw yourself around to our punkoid racket. Free entry but coins in the bucket gratefully received.
Meanwhile Ben will be popping up with a solo set at Paper Dress Vintage on 25th August at Nice Nights Records‘ launch party.

Our debut album is out now!

Our debut album, Nothing Isn’t Beautiful, is available for digital download now from our Bandcamp, as well as from iTunes, Amazon Music and all of those sort of places. The limited edition of CDs sold out immediately, but fear not! A second limited pressing (with slightly different artwork) is on its way, and will be available from Monday 3rd July.

You can also grab a copy from us at the end of June when we play in Leipzig (Fri 30th June) and Berlin (Sat 1st July). We don’t know any more about these gigs yet, but will announce full details when we do!

It’s AAAHHLIVE! Festival, 26th – 28th August

It’s nearly that time again!

In late August we return to the old Bahnhof at Bralitz for four days of music, dancing, home cooked food and lake swimming.
This year we’re joined by our mates Firestations and Tom Hatfield from the UK, together with friends old and new from across the continent.
Tickets are a ridiculously reasonable €22 for the weekend, including camping; children go free. So join us!
If the good music, delicious food and sheer conviviality of it all isn’t enough, we’ve heard a rumour that there might be a water slide at the lake this year too….

Bralitz is about an hour’s journey time from Berlin. Trains every half hour from Berlin Hbf to Eberswalde Hbf, where a little branch line train runs to the nearest station at Bad Freienwalde. It’s a short taxi ride from there to the festival site.

Join us at the Big Pink Cake Christmas All-Dayer

The lights are up, the ads are on the telly and the department store santas are practicing their ho-ho-hos. Like it or not, that familiar corporate juggernaut is rolling inexorably towards us all, with its Big Pink Cakecargo of schmaltz and saccharine.

But before we’re crushed beneath its wheels, come and join us for a bit of actual festive FUN at Big Pink Cake’s Christmas Party All-Dayer, at the Betsey Trotwood in Clerkenwell.

It’s a brilliant line-up, with surprise guests still to be announced. The action starts at 2pm on Saturday 12th December and goes on until late, and then you’ve got all of Sunday to recover. Tickets are only £15 plus booking fee, which for eight or more bands is ridiculously good value. Capacity is limited though, so book quickly while you can.

Three come along at once

You know what it’s like, you wait ages for an update and then…

So firstly, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be making our live radio debut on the deXter Bentley Hello GoodBye show on Resonance 104.4 FM.

We’re on air from midday on Saturday 14th November; if you don’t live in London, or you don’t have an old wireless set, you can tune in online at https://www.resonancefm.com

Secondly, we’re very pleased to tell you that we’ll be playing at Big Pink Cake’s Christmas All-Dayer on Saturday 12th December, at the Betsey Trotwood, in Clerkenwell, in That London.

There’s a great line up, including The Felt Tips and Catenary Wires, tickets for the whole day-long shebang cost only £15, so you should absolutely, definitely be there. Tickets available HERE– there are only 47 left at time of writing so book now!

Thirdly, we’re just putting the finishing touches to our forthcoming EP, ‘Those Unfortunates We Are’, and it’ll be available with the next edition of our bandzine, ‘Like London Buses’. That’s a bit of the artwork at the top of this post. More details coming very soon…

And just in case you’ve forgotten, we’ll be appearing this Hallowe’en Night at Cigarette Burns Cinema’s monster all-nighter at Regent Street Cinema, performing our horrific cover versions of some Brit-horror tunes. Tickets are still available here, if you’re quick…

Hallows. Is it screams you’re looking for?

The sun may be shining today. Death, purgatory and corporal corruption may be far from your mind as the scent of late summer barbeques still wafts on the breeze.

But they await us all. Prepare your soul today, while the sun still shines.

And what better way to prepare it than by booking a ticket to Cigarette Burns’ all–celluloid, no–digital, All Hallow’s Eve all–nighter, at the birthplace of British cinema, the Regent Street Cinema in London?

THOSE UNFORTUNATES will be on hand to help you through the dark watches of the night, book–ending each film with their interpretation of tunes from Brit-horror classics like Scream and Scream Again and The Monster Club along with tracks of their own.

Tickets are available NOW from Regent Street Cinema- be there, or ponder on your foolishness for all eternity….

Roaaahhrr! Join us this August at AAAHH Festival 2015 in Germany

We’re thrilled to have been invited back to play Aaahh Records’ magical festival for the third year in a row- between 28th-30th August.

This year the name of the festival is Roaaahhrr!, for reasons that will become clear nearer the time…

As before, it’s at the abandoned Bahnhof Oderberg-Bralitz in Brandenburg, Germany, just outside Berlin. Everyone who’s been in previous years will tell you what a wonderful weekend it is- if we had the chance, we’d stay there all year round.

Early bird tickets have sold out, but there are still tickets available for just €22 for the weekend, including camping, which is amazing value. It even includes food (and the food is great!).

Tickets here- more information- including our stage time- as we get it:
