Our tour with Laish finished yesterday in a blaze of sparsely attended glory in the Cellar in Oxford. Prior to that we played Utrophia space in New Cross, which is an ex-dairy warehouse space: freezing but it was full of friendly people, most of them yelling encouragement in appropriate places and some of them moving enthusiastically. That was a definate highlight.
Big thanks also to everyone who came in Cardiff, Bristol, Cheltenham and Leeds, and of course to Laish for being great on the road and for playing great songs every night. This is our slightly unsettling family photo, taken in Danny's parent's house:

Surfing Safari

Whilst I appreciate that I look by far the least like I am surfing, I was the 1st person to climb on the incongruous wall-mounted surfboard, so in that respect at least, I win. This was in Bournemouth by the way.

Thanks Lampshades, Hello Laish. .

Lampshades tour was ace, we had a great time, thanks to everyone that came to the shows.
This is us and them in front of a tree in my Mum and Dad's garden (it's a Wellingtonia, for anyone who's unsure and curious):

Our tour with Laish starts on Tuesday, in Leeds. Due to a recent adjustment of the venue, noise levels have to be limited, so we're going to play an acoustic set, for the 1st time in a while, which should be interesting. Laish are great,  I'm excited. .

Thankyou Bournemouth, Bristol and Brighton

We've had a great time in all towns beginning with B so far on tour, thanks everyone who came out to see us. Lampshades are ace, the tour bus is huge (by our standards). Got to run, the van's turned up, we're off to Manchester. This is us in Brighton last night:
