Hello, Twenny Fifteen!

No post in 6 months might suggest that we haven't been up to much; we haven't been up to much in the last 6 months. However, some small things have happened, and we are back writing songs.

Just before Christmas, we included this on a charity compilation. It's a cover of Sonic Youth's I Dreamed I Dream. We recorded it at the same time as the Misanthrope split single many years ago.

Then, as 2015 approached, we featured in a few end of year 'best of 2014' lists:
Procurement Records Blog put Trust as 10th best noise rock album
And Noise R' Us in France included Trust in their top albums We are there as number 1, but that might just be that ours was released first!
Then French website, Mowno, put Trust at 32nd in their top 50 We reckon Shellac and Beck were properly gutted to see us triumph over them.

To see in 2015, Phil, Gareth and I went to The Lamb in Surbiton for a Sci Fi fancy dress party. We didn't bother dressing up. That night I discovered the joys of Oakham Brewery's Citra ale, lost my keys, and dreamt about Oakham Brewery's Citra ale when I went to bed.
Gareth took a photo just after 12:

Then I turned 34 ten days later :-(

In the following weeks we got booked to play a few shows. All the information is in gig section, or on the right hand side if you're using a desktop computer.

See you soon.

We played with these lads on our last UK tour. They were absolutely brilliant so I'm delighted that we will be playing with them on the Bristol date of our next tour!

The World is Yours

Compilation: Peter Kemp - The World is Yours

This compilation was put together to honour a man called Peter Kemp and to raise some funds for causes close to his heart.

A few words from Arlo Yates (Peter's carer)

Peter Kemp is a total geezer who barring 28 years in a long-stay hospital (he has a mild learning disability) has lived all his life in West London.

His favourite things are films and music, and this love of all types of music led to his record review blog which we wrote together pretty much every week day for three years. He loves the attention it brought him and the people he met through it and it was an absolute joy to work with him on. Unfortunately Peter has been diagnosed with a terminal illness which is progressing very quickly, he's a much-loved character by pretty much everyone who knows him and he's going to be much missed. 

I'd like to thank Andy and Joe for organising this and for supporting the reviews and also thank everybody who contributed both to this tribute and to the blog over the years. 

Peter's record review blog can be found here :  peterkempsrecordreviews.blogspot.co.uk

Van Damn

Our van is in need of some essential repairs; now is a great time to buy our records! We have put up some combo deals on to the Bandcamp page here cheap-as-chips-combination-deals

This is the set from the first night of our recent European tour. It's at Bar'Hic in Rennes, France.
