Hey Guys,

Don't you think we should all buy purity rings?

Water Rats August 08

Some lovely snaps


Yep, we've got a gig on the 19th November. It's going to be at the 229 club on Great Portland Street, which is near Great Portland Street tube station, in LONDON. It's with Club Fanadango. Here's some information from their informative website.

We're going to be headlining so this may mean a later night than usual for some of you reserved types.

The Earwax Radio Set


Underground (by which we mean unpopular) internet radio station Earwax Radio have kindly played one of our songs on their show this week.

We are the opening number, so you don't have to look far for it, and amusingly the ident makes it sound as though it's The Rumble Strips, not us.

You can also hear the song on our myspace, but it's fun listening to it this way, with people talking over the introduction. Who needs the introduction anyway? Boring.

Hi there, we thought we'd compile a small collection of fan pix from around the world.

Here's Ian Mckaye, singer from Fugazi, and a big fan of the band. His favorite song is Castration.

Here is quiet Kevin Shields, wearing one of our caps. Kevin has been a fan since 2008, and his favorite member is Sean.

Steady on, Steve! I'm sure the cap is enough. Don't you think?

He might be secretive about his own music, but that doesn't stop Jandek from telling everyone about his favorite band

In the tradition of flogging a dead horse, we're back off to the Rhythm Factory next Sat 13th September. There's more info about the line-up here: http://www.rhythmfactory.co.uk/Press%20Releases/PR%20BYOP%20-%2013%2009%2008.html The chap from Deep Cut is the bassist in Death in Vegas if that's of interest.

No idea when we'll be on, but we'll let you know.

Please print off a flyer for £4 entry. Bargain.

w/Pete Doherty

It all comes down to ratios. Last night we had them right for the first time. Like most bands just starting out, we rely on friends and friends of friends to make up our audience. Who else is going to come? So the ratio of known to unknown fans is at best 50:50, at worst around 40:10. Last night it was a magnificent estimated 6:250!

We supported Pete Doherty at the Rhythm Factory. There was a barrier to keep back the throng. There was a throng. Some people danced and jumped about. The ends of songs were greeted not just with clapping and low whistles, but with cheering. Our cds were snapped up and there weren't enough for demand.

So, despite the fact he has no idea he did it, we're pretty grateful to P.DididdyOherty for giving us our first shot of playing a big(ish) crowd. In fact it was ace promoter Vis the Spoon who gave us the shot, but had Pete not decided to play these low key gigs, the opportunity wouldn't have been there anyway. So thanks Pete, thanks Vis the Spoon, and may it be the foundation on which a spectacular patio is laid.
