New EP- “Those Unfortunates We Are”

We’re proud to present our new four track EP- “Those Unfortunates We Are”, recorded and produced by Mark Jasper at Sound Savers.

Opening with our theme tune, described by BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson as “…brilliant… perfect length and great energy with a feisty twinkle in the eye”, the EP also includes new versions of live favourites “A Short Haired Boy” and “Raymond’s Perfect World”, as well as brand new track “On the Beach near Blakeney”.

It’s available as very limited edition CD (50 copies only) from Bandcamp, in a hand printed sleeve, together with immediate high quality digital download, plus issue two of the zine “Like London Buses”; nineteen pages of words and images created by the band.

It’s also available to download only from all the usual places, including iTunes, and all the rest…

Those Unfortunates We Are…

…and we’ve got a new four track EP coming out this Friday.

You’ll hear new versions of a couple of live favourites, ‘A Short Haired Boy’ and ‘Raymond’s Perfect World’, and two completely new tracks- the title track and ‘On The Beach Near Blakeney’.

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…

A birthday party for Malcolm- Friday 12th June

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.
