BEHIND THE SCENES

video

Nothing much to say about this.... this is practising in my old bedroom in my parents' house in Reading. Some things never change.

Not much to say about this either.... sometimes practices fall apart into nothingness. If you're in a band you'll know about this. My name's Jonny Sanders, Jonny Jonny Sanders.

People often ask us : ' Excuse me, where is the second album you're supposed to me making?'

Well some stuff happened while we were making it which means we took a bit longer than we hoped, but don't worry --- it's on it's way. Don't know when.

In the meantime, i found this song that we recorded years ago in my room in Reading - it's a cover version of Lets Wrestle's 'Man with Pica Syndrome.

Clicke HERE to doonload it

We don't often play other people's songs so it's quite a nice find. I have no recollection of recording it, and neither does Jonny, but we definitely did. I hope.

I think there is also another cover we once did of a clean song called Tally Ho... i'll try and find that too.

Okay, all the best,
bye bye

Hoxton Baby

Hello folks, I just rang to say that when we get back from Europe we're playing this show in hoxton Bar and Kitchen

http://www.hoxtonsquarebar.com/music-events/2010/may/pete-the-pirates

Well pleased that according to them we're

'wonderfully out of step with all other bands and scenes'


That might be the nicest thing anyone's said about us for ages.

Connan Moccasin has been one of all of our favourites for years now and if you haven't heard him yet, make sure you come in time to catch his set, you won't be dissappointed.

Also Micachu is djing so there will be some proper good tunes as well.

Proper good tunes? Um... you know what I mean

Ok yeah so come along, we'll all have sun tans and Italian accents by then. Plus we might play some songs that you like.

Lots of love Peter

So my friend Danny has a band called Sir Yes Sir and i would like to recommend them to you.

Here's a review: (with few too many contemporary comparisons for my liking but gushing none the less)

Having so merch fun...fresh prints...





sorry about that. genuinely sorry...here you find Jonny and me in my bedroom, making stuff.









We've been making t shirts to sell at shows for quite a while- mainly cos people always asked us why we never had anything to sell, and also cos Jonny keeps making very nice drawings.


But now we've transcended the loveless process of 'sending the off' to get printed en mass and have started doing it ourselves.

this means we now have a very limited collection of t-shirts, bags and posters. No two of which are quite the same..... ! It's also quite likely that they may have thumb prints, and gong wrong bits on them... this only makes them more desirable - it's the human touch.

I can't work out how to distribute the photos through the post... so they are all clumped together.

We are off to germany, austria and switzy land on wed for a spate of shows. We'll be taking our new goodies with us, so if you're in those ends, come see a show and grab a souvenir!
