Baby, why don't we?

I've finished packing - T-shirts & socks for each day but fewer pants (when you wake up in a sitting room and people are up and about and you need to rush somewhere else, dignity prevails over cleanliness), a spare pair of jeans, tooth brush, towel, phone charger, sleeping bag, baby wipes, and sixteen cans of Lidl bitter. It still amazes me, the cultural difference in Europe, you always get fed and beer'd. I'm not complaining though as I understand the cost of such things and am eternally grateful to the promoters putting on the shows which allows us to tour. I just prefer getting free beer.

I am planning on keeping a tour diary and posting it up on here [even though we are only going for a week]. And yes, it will be more of the same badly written crap seen above (and below).

Until then. x

oh, and this made me laugh - Thatcher

A Sign Post Scenery

One day of work to go...

We have added a shop to this blog, it's still a work in progress but everything works. There you can pick up your SF tote bags and stylish T-shirts. Though on a serious note, it does help towards the insurance on our van which has become stupidly expensive after some thieving little dadfucker couldn't keep his hands to himself*.

On a brighter note, this is pretty funny - don't fuck with the 'kowsers!

*Assuming it was a male.

Look Mum, No Hands!

Four more days of work then we are off on tour! We are really looking forward to heading back to Ireland and playing some places in England that we don't get to see much of. And of course we look forward to meeting up with our friends in the more familiar towns! All dates are displayed on the right.

We have printed some new t-shirts that are selling for £5. Phil drew the picture. We have them in Large, Medium, Small, Ladies fit Medium and Ladies fit Small. Email us if you want one or you can pick one up at a show.

Stop The World, I Want To Get Back On!

It turns out that these fellas are playing at the Fighting Cocks [Kingston] on Saturday too -
FalenizzaHorsePower. I heard them for the first time Thursday night at Shield 'em's album launch and they were incredible.

The line up is - Crowskin [Germany], Plague Mass,
FalenizzaHorsePower and us. It's a whopping £6 but there is a touring band on the bill.

Een Uniek Signaal

One Unique Signal -
Dismemberment EP We were discussing the other day, whilst listening to it on the way to a show, just how good this record is. It's free to download and if you like it you can buy it. [It is a .rar file which can easily be opened using this program]

Do it.

Pieces Of Eight FM

We had our gig broadcast live last night on this Pirate radio station. There has been some mint stuff on there and I'd fully recommend you have a listen. If we ever get a recording of the gig we'll post it up on here.

If it sounds good.
