Official launch of "No Place Like Home"

We officially launched our new album "No Place Like Home" in an event at The Old Contemptibles pub in Snow Hill, Birmingham on 17th September. We met old friends and made some new ones. There was Prosecco for guests, albums for sale (proceeds going to charity), a raffle and a full playthrough of the new album. The event was well attended. During the event, we raised over £140 for McMillan Nurses!

Some fantastic news: a new album - at last!

Our long-awaited 4th album, "No Place Like Home" is finally complete! We've been working on this, on and off, since 2017. A lot has happened over that time, and we've had to hustle to keep up the momentum, what with a pandemic, lockdown and various other disasters getting in the way.
But it's now all recorded and mastered. The cover art has been done, and last week we received the first batch of CDs!

There will be an official album launch event on the 17th of September, at The Old Contemptibles pub, 176 Edmund Street, Birmingham B3 2HB. Please come along if you are able to.

We also have a video for "Life Changing Gear" - one of the new songs - almost ready to release. Check back soon for more news.

And we should also mention. . .

. . . we've already started recording album #5! We've got so many great new songs that one album isn't enough to hold them all. So as soon as we'd completed recordingfor album #4, we carried right on laying down tracks for its successor, which hopefully will be along very soon!

Upcoming shows

Nothing currently scheduled. We're working on something though!

Even without the COVID-19 problem, long time fans will know that we don't get out to play as often as we should.
But the good news is that we're thinking seriously about playing some gigs in 2022.
If you run a venue or organise a festival in the MIdlands and would like us to come and play, please contact us!
