Album Launch: November 3rd

Finally! It arrives!

Yes, Listening Bones, our latest recorded offering, will be officially released at this auspicious occasion, and we would like you to join us.

You can pre-order this twisted brass monolith here:

(or grab a copy from us on the night!)

This “Feast of the Dead” (a halloween / fireworks night crossover bonanza) is hosted by Cloud Factory Adventures, and will take place at the amazing Passing Clouds in East London.

Get there early! It’s £7 before 10pm, £10 thereafter.

We have a whole hour of juicy material (old and new) to present to your gleaming ears, beginning at 23.30 sharp.

Additional wonders are provided by The Spanner Jazz Punks and The Great Malarkey. More treats TBC.

Excited to celebrate the end of this last chapter, of this latest incarnation…

Our Magical Summer Tour

Our ever watchful Sousa-Cam was mounted to Horace’s Sousaphone for the best part of this year, capturing our antics nearly everywhere we roamed. It was then lovingly spliced by Uncle to show you what we’ve been up to this very busy year….

The whole glorious mess is soundtracked by The Ossicles (Business part III) taken from our forthcoming album “Listening Bones”.

A Gift: The National Anthem: Radiohead Cover

We done a cover. It’s Radiohead’s mighty National Anthem and we rather like playing it. If you would like to listen to it and keep it forever as an .mp3 you can go our music page to grab it.

It’s the next slice from our next album Listening Bones which is officially out on November 3rd 2012. We are celebrating with a little part on the said date at Passing Clouds, London.

Perhaps Contraption Family Portraits

We recently had the pleasure of immortalising this moment in our little family, under the lens of Miss Amy Day (mastermind behind Am Statik). She also tweaked them to look extra wonderful….

Costumes conceived by Squier Squier and Amy Day. Then created with her skilled, relentless hands.

More snippets from this shoot to follow…
