We hope your summer is treating you all well! As it slowly draws to a close, we will be getting busy again after a month or so of writing and sitting around in an Isleworth garage smoking too much. In-between said writing and smoking too much, we have somehow managed to put together another release (which you can all get your hands on for FREE!) and arrange a bunch of super cool shows to see out the summer. First up, the download...'Gora'. This track has made it into a handful of recent sets so some of you may be familiar with it. It's a short one for us but hopefully punches the correct part of the head. We've also thrown in a live version of 'Villains', recorded in Cardiff during the February Telescopes tour. For anyone wanting a physical release of this, we have also put together a strictly ltd run of 25 copies, available on 3.5" floppy disc. Each one comes in a hand crafted, individually numbered sleeve, finished off with a wax seal. Please note THESE WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE AT GIGS! We'll carry a small amount at each of our summer shows and once gone that will be that. Here's the link to the free download. Pass it on :) http://www.mediafire.com/?psjmkmrpl8pyc66
Ok, so now to the gigs...We begin at the end of July with two shows, one in Northampton and one in London. The line up for both nights will be ourselves alongside The Second Floor and The Urgz. The Second Floor are Manchester based and some of you may recognise the front man Nolan from his other job as Bassist in Spectrum. The Urgz, from Rugby, are the current project of Pete Bain aka Pete Bassman, ex Spacemen 3 / The Darkside. I think enough said on that line up! In August, we then play 3 more Telescopes shows in Southend, Brighton and London. As before, these will feature a full bodied set from the Taste era, played with the necessary brutality! OUS will be performing a support set at the Southend and London dates. We then round off our summer in September with the Hired Geeks all dayer in the East End, headlined by the superb Part Chimp! Full details of all shows can be found below.We hope you enjoy the download and we'll see you out there in gig land!
