Sjhaking all over!

13th October sees the release of a new three track EP “Sjhake” by Cambridge self styled purveyors swirling keyboard-fuelled psychpop with horror-show freak-beat guitars and new wave post-punk bass-lines.
Lead track Sjhake previously featured on the bands second album “Haunted Mirror”, second track “Glossy Magazines” was featured on a German Shepherd compilation and the third track “Electric Line Terminus” is a new release.
 ...and we'll be promoting the single/EP at this gig on 14 October at the Cornerhouse, alongside The Face and The Keepers; not to mention appearing on a local radio show or two (details TBC shortly)!

Sjhaking it with a new single! Words, music and more!

Artwork of our forthcoming single 'Sjhake'
The word is out! We have a new single (or three-track EP if you like) out on 13 October, released through those lovely German Shepherd Records people!

'Sjhake', from our current album 'The Scissors Is The Haunted Mirror' is joined by two other tracks, the cautionary tale of 'Glossy Magazines', and the dystopia-is-upon-us rave-up that is 'Electric Line Terminus'.

And if that's not enough, we're also involved in the 'Ian Moss and Friends' spoken word + music project (a preview of which, not featuring us, can be heard here). More on that soonwards!

Do you believe in MODern love?

Next gig! A free-entry mod/psych extravaganza down at Cambridge's lovely Cornerhouse. Saturday 14th October.
Playing with mod revival legends The Face, and energetic mod/psychsters The Keepers!

It might even be our next single launch, if the stars align...

Rain couldn't stop the rocknroll! Knackfest 2017 at Karma Farm

Huge thanks to the Knackfesters at the weekend at Karma Farm - all who came (and those who bought up all our CDs), the Knackers for having us play once again; and to the sound guy who got half the band smashed on absinthe!
Pic by Donna. The rain couldn't stop the rocknroll!

What a great bill it was too - we caught sets from Raggedy Rawney, Alice Walker, Tommy Loose, the Knackers-lite, and Psychic Lemon - all fantastic. We had an amazing time... maybe do it again in 2018?
