What do Wales, funk, royalty, sex and churches all have in common?

They are all mentioned in this post.

Hallo there

Not written (wrote?) for a bit so here are a few updates for you. Bad news traditionally goes first so….

Alas, our Emily has upped sticks to go back to her homeland/mothership of WelshWales. We wish her all the ruddy best. She will be missed mightily and we’re sad to see her go. Who else will throw drunken slaps around as violently/generously? Well…Rox….BUT….our door is always open so you may well see her pop up now and again at future live dates. Especially if we play in Cymru. So join us in a hearty ‘BYE EM (weep weep)….’!

In a more positive light, we have already demoed 5 songs for the next album so expect to see some newbies in the set from now on. I’m hoping there won’t be as big a gap betwixt releases this time too. The direction of the new material currently seems to be that of a depressed Prince. As in the tiny lord of all things sexy and funky. Not our future monarch Charles. As far I it goes, I’m reliably informed that he is unaware of both sex and funk.

Annnnnnnnnd last but not least, here’s some live dates where you’ll be able to catch a few of those aforementioned spangly new numbers. Particularly excited to be playing with The Smoke Fairies in a church next week. They’re fantastic artists and our paths over the years as bands are bizarrely intertwined. Theirs is liberally sprinkled with success, laughter, fame and Jack White…ours is grimly dribbled with chaos, tears, obscurity and Jack Malpas-Coker. But intertwined they are none the less. Buy me a drink and ask me about it somewhen and I’ll tell you why. (Disclaimer. You may want to reconsider that as the story will be long, meandering and actually quite dull.)

ANYWAY.
