New Year, New Albums

Posted in Merch, Recording on 10/01/2020 by chrish

Yes, it’s the year 2020. Welcome to the future.

We have TWO new albums for you – officially released next month but now available to stream and pre-order.

Live In Belper is another collaboration with Adam Stone, recorded in Stone’s home town of Belper, Derbyshire close to the scene of our first encounter which resulted in In The Year 2039.  Adam explains more and you can preview a couple of tracks exclusively at The Fragmented Flâneur.

Night Lands is the extraordinary result of an afternoon jamming with then brand new bassist Jack and a visiting Nik Rayne of The Myrrors. Again you can find out more and stream the album at The Fragmented Flâneur.

Both albums are available to pre-order now at Cardinal Fuzz and our Bandcamp site.

 

Winter is here…

Following our recent run of gigs, we’re retreating to the practice room for a little while to get some more new stuff together. But things are already afoot for the new year: we have two new LPs in the works, both featuring previous collaborators. Here’s a sneak preview of extracts from both albums:

This Friday we’re playing with Adam Stone at DubRek Studios in Derby, along with Berlin bands Jaguwar and Yeahrs.

Right then, enough nostalgia, on to the future. We have gigs coming up in Todmorden, London and Manchester, plus one with Adam Stone in Derby – details and links on the gigs page. First is Todmorden on 31st August as part of Tor Festival, and we will have some new stuff to play for you.

It was ten years ago today…

It’s 10 years to the day since Chris, Brett and Nick had their first practice together, a jam session which yielded the source material for several Dead Sea Apes numbers.
To celebrate this anniversary, for TODAY ONLY you can hear a specially codged together selection of extracts from that session.
Here’s where it all began, at the (now demolished) Greenhouse Studios in Stockport, 4th of August 2009.

10 years of Dead Sea Apes

Posted in Recording on 30/07/2019 by chrish

This Sunday, the 4th of August, is the 10th anniversary of the first Dead Sea Apes band practice. Fortunately the tape was rolling, or rather the flash memory was encoding, and this jam session generated the basis of several pieces which went on to become staples of our live set and recordings. So to mark the occasion, for ONE DAY ONLY on Sunday you will be able to listen to some of this session and hear where it all started. Stay tuned…

Next gig…

…will be Tor Festival, end of August at the Golden Lion, Todmorden – should be a cracking weekend. Until then we’ll be getting together some new stuff (and maybe some more old stuff as well), and sorting out more gigs for the autumn.
