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”.

We are glad to receive a lovely collection of shots from Sahara Ezzi; who snapped us performing at Bestival. Playing on a giant rotating saw-stage-sculpture-thing was certainly a highlight of our Summer…

Perhaps Contraption are delighted to be making various noises & shapes during some sort of micro tour this coming weekend.

We will be making appearances on Saturday the 27th at Festibelly & Wyndstock, both nestled near the gorgeous New Forest.

During the day at Festibelly we will be doing a few guerilla shows around the site & then topping it off with a sweaty late night / early morning performance in the “Massive in China” tent at 2:00 am sharp.

Our Wyndstock show will parade through the grounds of this stunning country manor, before settling cosily around a fire to provide some knees up merriment circa 22:30.

After that we are off to the depths of Kent, for a tiny charity festival called Where The Wild Things Are, nestled deep in a forest. Our show will be at 15:30 on the 28th.

Finally we are whirling back to London for a show at 21:00 at The Old Queen’s Head in Angel. This is an all dayer put on by those feisty London Leisure Pirates & will be headlined by the Correspondents. Here’s the link to the Facebook gumpf.

We hope to see you wobbling at one of these things. After that we are gearing up for Malcfest on the 2nd of September, and then topping off our meandering relentless festival season with couple of glorious days at Bestival; where we will be doing guerilla shows & a set in the POLKA tent…  gasp.

A brief breath and then we will be recording our new material at the Premises Studios in late September… a single & music videos loom…

Yours Sleepily,
