This is a videoclip of us, filmed by Dave Roberts of the Hawklords crew – when we played the main stage at last year’s Kozfest. We’d kinda overlooked it, in favour of uploading a few other choice chunes from that set. Only now, during a nostalgic trawl through old photos and recordings have we given it a proper listen. And you know what? …it ain’t bad.
Some images set to a new tune. Summer 2014.
We’d just like to convey our very sincere heartfelt thanks and good vibes to the lovely, swirly folks of Sonic Rock Solstice; the crew; Martyn, Snake, Jan, Kozmik Ken, Isaac, Dave and the various folk running around carrying things and twiddling with their knobs (and indeed ours). This was our second year running, but our first appearance on the main stage.
A big high-five also to the muzos and mutants who entertained us either from the stage or at the bar – or both. This one will remain a great memory. We gave it our all, when we had our chance – and hope our wonky approximation of ‘music’ connected with at least somebody. Thanks, ya big buncha freaks!
Here’s a tune from our most recent gig; Off The Tracks festival, in Derbyshire. Filmed, as ever, by our roadie Rich McQuinn. More details (and another film clip) can be found in our appraisal of 2014.
A big thanks to Slim Verhoef for embellishing us with psychedelic solars – and engineer Jay for the psychedelic sonics. Also, we must give a virtual high-five to Andy for booking us!!
This one will be fairly close to home, for a couple of our members – and put us back in the company of a few bands we’ve played with at previous festivals.
More details on our 2014 page.
Greetings. A quick missive to greet a few new followers and add an update or two. As you may have gathered, the Psychedelic Spring festival (scheduled for April) was shelved a few weeks ago. We’d like to quash any rumours about poor ticket sales. Bad vibes are to blame, from what we heard. Still, in the week we heard this, we also got invitations to play two new gigs! One is a private party in Digbeth, Birmingham – the other a secret, invitation only, festival at a mystery location near the sea, in Wales.
Following these, we go public once more with a cracking weekender, Off The Tracks, up near Castle Donnington! This is a very popular biannual music, arts and family event. We’d love to see you at the Spring one, where we’re on with Jesus Jones, Big Country and Eat Static among many others. More details can be found in our 2014 page.
The second album now has a title, some groovy artwork and a track running order. We’ve some new friends who we’re releasing it with – and they’ll help us market it, under their banner. As before, this will also be a limited edition keepsake of where our heads were at during a particular period, in our ongoing adventures. In this instance the end of 2013 and beginning of 2014. It should be available online and directly from our grubby hands at shows. The live sets will no doubt contain elements of this album, the previous and… who knows what else?
Keep connected, groove monkeys!
Chris, Robot, Corky & Nick
