We return to Hackney’s Paper Dress Vintage on Thursday 1st December, in the company of the inestimable Firestations and the superlative Dan Shaw. £5 suggested donation in advance or on the door, 7.45pm kick-off.
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…
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:
On Friday 12th June, That There Those Unfortunates launch their brand new single – a (fast)moving tribute to Malcolm McDowell, star of If…, O Lucky Man and Britannia Hospital (not to mention Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange).
It’s just £5 in, and you can BYOB.
Space is limited, so although you can pay on the door, you can guarantee a place by prebooking here.
Prebooking also gets you a goody bag including an limited edition art postcard, full download of the three track EP and a bag of Monster Munch.
The band will be joined by the really rather ace Witching Waves, whose 2014 debut album, Fear of Falling Down, was picked by Drowned in Sound as one of the year’s best LPs.
Turn up early to catch a special screening of Lindsay Anderson’s masterpiece, If…, McDowell’s big screen debut. Stay on late to ring in Malcolm’s 72nd birthday, which falls at midnight (as birthdays often do) on 13 June.
Doors open at 7pm, at the Old Fire Station, 61 Leswin Road, London N16 7NX- that’s just off Stoke Newington High Street, here’s a map.
I Wish That I Could Smile Like Malcolm is available NOW as a free digital download from right here.
A limited edition (of 50) art print with exclusive three track digital download will be available at the gig.
We’ll be appearing at Stoke Newington’s Ryan’s Bar in a few weeks time, on Saturday 25th April, courtesy of Walthamstow’s The Centrals. We played our first gig at Ryan’s, so we’re looking forward to squeezing back onto its tiny stage. £3 entry, look forward to seeing you in the beer garden for a drink beforehand. Our stage time will be around 8.45ish.
We’ll be appearing at the excellent Paper Dress Vintage shop on London’s Curtain Road this Easter Saturday (4th April).
Doors are from 8pm; we’ll be joined by our labelmates Walk Upright and we’ll be playing tracks from our new split single, Arthur Lowe/No Control, which is available here, and will be available for £5 on the night.
The strictly limited edition 7″ single comes wth high quality digital downloads of both sides, plus three exclusive bonus tracks.
Join us tomorrow evening (Weds 4th February) at the old 12 Bar Club on Denmark Street, where we’ll be playing in support of Bohemians for Soho, who are occupying the much loved venue in an attempt to save it from destruction by Consolidated Developments. Should be on about 8.30pm.
On Saturday 26th July we play the sticky floored, indie Valhalla that is Camden Town’s Dublin Castle.
You should come, it will be ace.
Here’s a nice flyer that you can print off and use to beautify your flat; if you bring it on the night tickets are only £5 on the door. We’ll be on a little after 9pm.
