We're still not dead

Hi folks,

Sorry about the lack of communication of late. We came back from tour in November delirious but exhausted and have promptly disappeared from sight ever since. We need to say a well over due ENORMOUS THANKS and MUCH LOVE to every single person who put us on, put us up, put up with our company, fed us, talked to us, bought something, got drunk or much, much worse things with us on tour. We had an absolute blast and enjoyed ourselves immensely to a man every day. The general consensus was: BEST. TOUR. EVER. Some photos showing the general malaise of touring life have been shoved up on F***b**k here:
(Don't worry, they're available for anyone to look at, so you don't need to log in to see them).

We haven't been posting anything since we got back because we've only all managed to be in the same room at the same time a grand total of twice in the last 3 months; unfortunately now we don't all live in each others' pockets or share houses/flats and have to actually work for a living, it's not so easy to get together. Plus, we celebrated the second anniversary of having all our old gear nicked by our practice room space getting flooded by a burst pipe thanks to the freezing weather over the holiday period, so we've had to clear out of there and hole up with our good friends Savoy Grand and Kogumaza. Thankfully not too much got lost in the flood, but if you're lucky enough to own a copy of our first, untitled, 12" - congratulations, that record got a hell of a lot rarer... 90% of our remaining stock got destroyed!

So what does 2011 hold? Well, the first thing for us, apart from starting to practise regularly, is to finally, finally, finally finish our third album. We started recording in November 2009 and have made snail-like progress ever since, but our focus is now razor-sharp, to the exclusion of doing pretty much else. We may play an odd show here or there, but for now we just need to get this thing done and out of our systems so we can get on with our lives. Tentative plans for another tour to coincide with the record's release are being put in place, but don't expect anything until the autumn. Until then, please feel free to email us with any inane questions, dodgy banter or gig requests you may care to pass on.

Peace out.
