Local Secrets have just written a nice little piece about what you can expect...

Scissors tipple

Every band seems to be coming out with their own branded ale or other beverage these days. We can't quite stretch to that, but if you want a Scissor-flavoured drink, why not try mixing all our favourite tipples together?

Stewart's tipple: Jack Daniels or any half decent Italian red wine
Toby's tipple: Gin, or Blue Nun (other brands of rocket fuel are available)
Simon's tipple: Scrumpy, or other 'proper' cider
Huw's tipple: Monster energy drink (other brands of insanity-inducing energy drinks are available)

Pour 142ml of each of the above into a pint glass. Put on a Scissors record. Enjoy.

The Scissors remind you to listen to our records responsibly.

Groovin' the Grape!

It's been a little while since we've been in live action (though it was a very busy summer, with a few mystery private gigs between the scheduled ones), but we're back!
Friday 17 October we'll be playing Cambridge's The Grapes (19 Histon Road, CB4 3JB), with our fantastic chums Bouquet of Dead Crows and Trouser Crisis!
The perfect end to your week - and free entry too!

Album recording

We've finally found some time to continue work on our next album, and have got the basis of most of the rest of the tracks in the can. There are still guitar and vocal overdubs to do and a fair bit of knob twiddling, but the tracklisting is sorted and in rough form it's got the feel we were after. All coming together nicely!

It has a title too, which we'll reveal shortly. The vibe of the album (and cover) is 1890s music halls, conjurers and illusionists, magic lantern phantasmagoria, fake seances, and a big slab of psychedelia...

No Jackdaws this time :(

Sadly our Brighton chums Jackdaws have had to drop out of March's gig with us. But we'll bring them to Cambridge soon, don't worry!

In the meantime, check out their live set on Soundcloud. Enjoy!

We'll announce an updated lineup for 7 March shortly...

Psychrock and blues!

We're playing in March back at Cambridge's legendary Cornerhouse (home to a lot of Cambridge's local indie/alt scene), with the lovely Bouquet of Dead Crows (alt acoustic bluesrock), and fresh from Brighton, Jackdaws (howling garage bluesrock).
A bit different, a bit awesome, we reckon!
