Happy New Year friends!
We hope you all had an enjoyable Xmas break! January is always a bit arse and while we can't really guarantee anything to brighten it up for you, by reading on you could be distracted for around 88 of the 2,678,400 seconds the month insists we all endure :)
We spent the time between Christmas and New Year over in Berlin laying down some tracks with Stephen Telescope. For anyone yet to experience New Year celebrations on the streets of that city, we can promise you it's ever so slightly unnerving! Brought up in a country that teaches it's youth that you can melt your face off with a sparkler in seconds, there was a definite chorus of tut's and finger wagging coming from our number! Anyway, time constraints were such that we were unable to arrange a show while there but all being well we will get that side of things sorted in the not too distant. There's little to tell on the recordings at the moment but we will keep you posted as and when things progress. There are some shots on our Facebook page for anyone wanting to kill off some more of those January seconds... http://www.facebook.com/?sk=messages&ref=mb#!/pages/One-Unique-Signal/18939899018
There will be a couple of new releases from The Telescopes in the coming months, one of which will be a vinyl release on the new 'Static Charge' imprint. Keep an eye on your inbox for details soooooon :) OUS are planning a new release of our own for the early part of 2011 and as per usual we will bombard you with the details as we have them.
Ok then, shows!
We have 2 lined up over the next month. It's gradually becoming a tradition that we play the first Rip This Joint of the year and right on cue we are there this Saturday (15th)! The night is curated by The Reactor Core is Splendid, it's the usual Â£2 and is the perfect ear bleeder to kick off your gig going year.
We follow that up on Friday February 11th with a Soho show @ 'Club for Losers', the West End's premier purveyors of filthy punk and dirty rock n roll.
Details of both shows are below and we hope you can make one or both.
See you soon people and thanks, as always, for your ongoing...
