Followers of the Brethren. Just a quick update to keep you abreast of what us sons of bitches are up to — because you deserve that much.
This month started with an interview with the great Tom Robinson of BBC 6music. Tom graciously invited us to talk about our 2010 release, our upcoming EP and how, despite our un-media trained mouths, we write pretty damn well together — in our own humble opinion. Mr. Robinson was a cool guy and a true gentleman getting us played with his mate downstairs, Steve Lamacq, and even forgiving my faux-pas of ‘umming’ like a confused goat when answering a question. He also was kind enough to edit out Sanch’s frankly terrible description of our new EP as being ‘a lot more honest’ a comment which prompted a scowl from our frontman Kenny. In spite of this though, ‘These Canvas Shoes’ sounded fat and we clearly came away with egos the size of houses. Not really. But it was good bonding time with my two wingmen (cracking Top Gun reference).
We’ve also started recording our second EP, with which have risen four songs that might just be the strongest and most stylish — but not ‘honest’ — we have ever written together. We hired a massive old 19th Century city mansion with a 40 ft ceiling to record the drums, bass and guitar. The sound was absolutely huge. Expect slight reverb. All thanks goes to Ben at Got Mics (www.gotmics.com). Shameless plug.
Lastly, we shall be playing our first show in a wee while on 25th March at The Old Blue Last. You may flirt with the idea of joining us.
See you soon fluffers,
Much Love, T x
