We have also finally had some photo’s taken of us by the wonderful Stacey Hatfield where we don’t look like complete plebs but rather a proper moody ‘band’ n that so they will follow shortly but go check her website out. It has some truly gorgeous photographs upon it

And finally upon all of this we would like to give a big shout out to Matthew GRIMBLE. He is a wizard. A technological wizard whom we spent 3 days in a studio with setting up our new snazzy//techy//ridiculous live set up which we will now be touring with!!!! No more keyboards through guitar amps! Added vocal looping possibilities!! COLOURED TAPE!!! We cant wait to play through it for ya’ll.

Anyways after a huge email of wittering on about ourselves we hope all is well in your various camps and looking forward to catching you at one of our many shows we got lined up!!!!!

Big Love Ric, Matt and Jamie x x x x
