STEALTH EMBROIDERY

Do you know any floating voters / Tory voters in marginal seats? Do you have a Conservative-voting Grandma who likes her grandchildren and embroidery but for some reason thinks Theresa May is great? Perhaps you know a floating voter who is so twee they might actually be swayed by a small piece of embroidery?
Email me their address and I will anonymously post one of these to their house.

NB this isn’t a ‘merch’ thing so please don’t ask for one for yourself. I’m asking for people’s help with this as we’re safe from Tories here in Sheffield (hurray!) so it would be great to hear from people in marginal seats. I am a total amateur embroiderist embroiderer whatever so if my sub-par stitching upsets your gran don’t say I didn’t warn you.

‘Certain Death’ recorded by Alan Smyth at 2fly Studios, Sheffield, mastered by Dean Honer
Nat Johnson – vocals, guitar; Oliver Allchin – saw, percussion; Hannah Cartledge – vocals, flute, accordion; Katherine Jackson – vocals; Chris Loftus – bass; Neil Piper – drums

Monkey Swallows the Universe…again!

You asked for it. TWO more MSTU shows, this time marking the 10th anniversary of our second album, The Casket Letters, which was released on Loose Records in 2007.

We’ll be playing The Casket Letters in full on Friday 28th July at Sheffield City Hall Ballroom. Tickets will be on sale for this one from Friday 10th March.

We’ll also be playing a set of our favourites at Indietracks Festival on Sunday 30th July. Tickets are on sale NOW.

The Fisherman

Music helps

Everything is upside down. Music helps. Come and see us at The Lamplight Club in Sheffield on Fri 3 March, along with The Gentle Good. Tickets here.

The last time Gareth Bonello (The Gentle Good) came to Sheffield was the day after the General Election. We weren’t feeling too good then either, but we sang to a similarly bruised audience and we all helped each other. Here’s a video of the two of us singing together that night, performing Gareth’s beautiful song ‘The Fisherman’ – you can hear the proper version on his latest album ‘Ruins/Adfeilion’, which is out now on Bubblewrap Records.

More gigs coming soon.

Bandcamp

Tomorrow, Fri 3 Feb, Bandcamp are donating 100% of their shares of any music purchases to the American Civil Liberties Union. So you can help protect human rights and support independent musicians (cough cough) and treat yourself all at the same time.

Be excellent to each other.
