Like so much, this wasn’t what I had quite planned, but it is how it has panned out. And it’s still great.
First of all, our actual decade date will be Wednesday 24th September, 10 years to the night that Alex Fruen put his hand through a glass table, Adam Rossitor broke a mirror – subsequently getting us banned – and a bunch of Lavington kids complained there was too much metal. There was, but we all had fun anyway.
To celebrate this now probably over egged fact, we’re throwing 2 shows. One in Swindon, where we arguably have had some success, featuring the aptly named DECADE. Then the following night we have managed to convince American post-hardcore legend turned soloist, JONAH MATRANGA to come to -well off the beaten track- Devizes. Our stomping ground, garrison, HQ what ever we call it, it’s been the best place to see the best bands from the UK underground in Wiltshire for 10 years. We very much took over as Trowbridge came to a close. No bad thing – Trowbridge ruled until it lost it’s venue(s). We came in, took the baton and carried the torch.
You can find all that relevant info on our gigs page to your right, if you’re reading on the web or by clicking HERE if you’re in the mail out.
We’re suitably excited and impressed, and we hope you are too.
I, Kieran Moore, will be on the radio Wednesday night from 7 – 9pm with fellow conspirator Rob Escott, on his session The Colour Of Vinyl, to play you a bunch of tunes and try and convince you why you should all be attending these shows. Rob is an excellent host and we have a lorra lorra laughs. You should probably tune in, as let’s face it Wednesday night is hardly where it all goes down. Tune in HERE! or via your tablet or smart phone using the TunedIn radio app.
THE T SHIRTS CAME!
I wasn’t expecting to be so organised with the t-shirts, or the company to be so quick. Nevertheless we ordered them and received them in total, within 2 days. Which makes me the owner of 100 grey t-shirts. You can pick them up form our Bandcamp page, which is under STORE on your right, or clicking HERE. They’re £8 with free delivery. We’ve sold a bunch already, which is great – and you can see from the pictures below – they look raddd.
Many thanks to fledging local designer, SHARNA MOLLETT for the design and to Alex Fruen (the same guy as the glass incident above) of Original Glory for the digitalisation. They were screen printed by Calder Screen Print, Halifax.
Keep an eye on our Bandcamp, as I want to revive the Live At The Lamb playlist thingy… but we’re not quite there yet.
I’m still on the summer break. I’m still not doing any more gigs until September, but I hope you’re enjoying your time where ever you are, chasing the dream.
DECADE – Callous.
