Connie’s album is finally getting reissued on vinyl!
January stretches before us like an interminable ice pop, and not even a blue one, but wait – what’s that in the distance?
Why it’s a TOUR!
If you were in charge of the set, what Monkey Swallows the Universe / Nat Johnson & the Figureheads would you definitely include? (No promises being made). Leave me a comment below or tell me on twitter or Facebook.
Happy New Year!
Featuring a cameo from Katherine’s cat Minnie, we present our Christmas cover of 2000 Miles by The Pretenders (not to be confused with 500 Miles by The Proclaimers). Season’s greetin’s!
We had loads of entries for our Neighbour of the Year competition! Thank you to everyone who entered (for your kind messages as well as your entries). After much deliberation between the four of us, we have picked the following as the winning answer to the question “What would your neighbour say is the worst thing about living next door to you”
“I’d say my neighbour’s current beef with us revolves around me (badly) playing Iggy Pop’s The Passenger on guitar while my 3 year old son shouts PASSENGER, PASSENGER, PASSENGER…”
Congratulations to David Shortall (and Herbie) who wins two copies of the album and four tickets to our show at the Finsbury in London.
Folk & Feast
We had a really really lovely evening last night at the Bhaji Shop for Sheffield Food Collective’s ‘Folk & Feast’ Christmas special. Laura from Sheffield Food Collective says it was a record-breaker for them in terms of the amount of donations raised for Sheffield’s Food Banks too. Thanks so much to all who were there, especially for joining in with our 2000 miles cover. If you can, get to Sheffield Food Collective’s next show – Mike Heron (Incredible String Band!) with Trembling Bells, plus support from our friends Big Eyes Family.
That’s our last gig then until the big Neighbour of the Year tour, starting in January! I shall also take this opportunity to suggest you buy stuff as Christmas presents, shall I? Yes I think I will. Albums! T-shirts! Gig tickets! Happy shopping.
