Artists Against AIDS

Posted in On The Web, Recording on 30/11/2012 by chrish

The 1st of December is World AIDS Day. To raise money and draw attention to the continuing fight against HIV/AIDS, our friend Kris from Rock Prodigy Radio in the Netherlands has put together this album featuring 17 rock and indie tracks.  Listen and buy on Bandcamp.  All the music has been donated free by the artists, and all the proceeds will go to the Netherlands AIDS charity Stop Aids Now.   Our contribution is an exclusive alternate mix from our collaboration with Black Tempest – Wilder Penfield (Penfield Mood Organ mix).   More details and news about the project on the Red Tape Facebook page.

See You On The Other Side

Posted in General, Recording on 10/11/2012 by chrish

We’ve had a great run of gigs over the last few months, with Newpath in Liverpool and Manchester, Carlton Melton in Sheffield and Hebden Bridge, and back in Manchester with Agitation Free.  Thanks to everyone involved and anyone who came to see us: we’ve really enjoyed playing live and meeting friends old and new.

Our album Lupus and EP Astral House are still available on CD, and we have a couple of new releases on the slate:  our collaboration with Black Tempest is coming out in January on Cardinal Fuzz records;  and our recent gig at Hebden Bridge Trades Club with Carlton Melton will be issued on a limited-edition double cassette by Triangle Tapes.

We’re taking a break from gigging for a few months, but we’ve got plenty of new music and ideas to work on over the winter so we should emerge blinking in the sunlight, ready to hit the road again in about April.

Till then…
