Balcony TV Acoustic session

myself and Chris (and Pauline) braved the elements the other night to play a jolly acoustic version of our song ‘Green’ on a balcony of an apartment in Dame St, Dublin the other night… the results are as follows!

don’t forget, we’re playing the Menagerie with Panda Kopanda and Barry’s Electric Workshop this Friday 2nd Jan :-)

New Year Menagerie Gig

Hello folks, and Happy Christmas!

Its been an exciting year for us with first the single release and tour, and then the release of our album, Loosely Based On Fiction. We can’t wait for next year either with plans afoot for further releases, new recording sessions and very importantly, gigs!

We’ll have news on Dundalk and Dublin shows soon, but for now we’re really pleased to announce a gig next Friday 2nd January 2009 at the newly reopened Menagerie on Belfast’s University Street. We’ll be supporting the awesome Panda Kopanda, and after the splendid live music, Mr Barry Cullen (BEW) will be playing some dancing tunes. If you are in Belfast, this is the place to be!
