A lot of people seemed interested in our cover of ‘Weak’ by Skunk Anansie that we’ve been slipping into our acoustic set. I’ve just stumbled across a video on YouTube. SA’s guitarist Ace produced our early EPs and they were one of the first bands that Neil and Barney ever saw live so the band has always been in our blood! Hope you enjoy the tribute…
Our buddies in Birmingham reggae merchants Kioko have done an awesome article on Punktastic listing ‘5 must-hear British reggae and ska tracks’. Check them out! We wholeheartedly approve. And once you’ve checked them out, check out Kioko’s incredible new EP on Soundcloud!
Last week we joined our buddies Imperial Leisure for the launch gig of their new album – Lifestyle Brand. We played an acoustic set of old and new tunes and caught a video of our cover of Fairground Attraction’s ‘Perfect’. Click through to check out the update and the video… smarturl.it/a2vx49
There’s a studio version of the track on the Operation Boombox EP – which all the Pledgers have already got, of course!
We are stoked to announce that we will be doing our recently re-invigorated acoustic set on Saturday 30th May for the Camden Rocks Festival. One of our favourite festivals in the UK, on our very own doorsteps, this year featuring some awesome bands including our friends in Skindred (official), Ginger, Turbowolf, Feed the Rhino and many many more. We wouldn’t have missed it for the world!
“As the reality of this loss begins to set in, so do some of it’s repercussions. It has come to light that we owe it to Matt to let his legacy live on through his music. We feel compelled to try and give our most recent and last album Routines the exposure it deserves. We also have a renewed desire to get the acoustic songs that we all recorded together out there soon. In the circumstances, we feel really keen make our efforts as positive as possible and as such, a portion of the profit from the sale of the record will be donated to a charity by the name of Campaign Against Living Miserably(www.thecalmzone.net). Details will soon follow.”
Recording some vox, making collabs happen, fulfilling our pledges! #operationboombox
