A licky boom-boom down

We got a rather nice review in this month's Rock Sound Magazine "D.I.Y. in its sound and approach, uncompromising and awkward, 'Dead Lake' is all you could want from a real punk record" 8/10. Which was nice. It makes up for this, shall we say, less than impressive review. To be fair though the guy does seem like a total prick.

Also I'd like to point you in the direction of some ace records;

No Plato - Free + Proud (I'm not sure if that is what it is called or they are just proud that they are giving it away for free?!).

Aeroplane Flies High - MKI These lads and lass played with us in Liverpool back in February and at the time were 15, 16 and 17 year olds. The record only costs £2.00! You can have a listen first.

Music Spoken Here

I know it means nothing and is just a bit of fun, but our album Dead Lake made it into RecordStore.co.uk's top 30 albums of the year! We came in at 21 with Deftones only just beating us but we managed a victory over The Melvins and Rolo Tomassi.

You should probably take a look at RecordStore.co.uk and I'm not just saying that because they were nice to us.

You're My Mate (and I like you)

These are the ace labels that put out Dead Lake for us. They're a good bunch of Lasses and Lads and are truly worth a browse as they put out some tremendous bands. Go spend your money!

WeHeartRecords - This lot have put out three of our records in the past and have put out loads of ace shit like Attack! Vipers! and AndTheyWillRiot!

Art For Blind - They reside in Leeds and have put out Ox Scapula, Carson Wells and Twisted. They are currently doing a deal for our record and the Ox Scapula one for £16.00

Rejuvenation Records - They're from Paris and have put out over thirty records including Revok, Do You Compute, Scul Hazzards, Kimmo and Microfilm.

Bigoût Records - Lyon's Bigoût have put out Scul Hazzards, Sofy Major and Kiruna. The new Kiruna album is coming and will be well worth your money.

Oh and Jenkins, apparently your mother died this morning.

Awoken To White Walls And Sterile Routines

Tour was good fun, even though it took a while to really get going. The first three gigs weren't very good but after that it went to plan! I apologise for not doing the tour diary. We didn't really get much time near a computer to do it. I am going to write up what I didn't post and put up a link on here for people to read.

We played with these ace bands - Machete - Consolation Prizefighter - Dog Canute - Specific Ocean - Chrik - Annapurna - Slugbait - Elk - Children Under Hoof - click and enjoy.
