Belvita biscuits are just rich teas sandwiching bodily fluids

Been a while this time! How you doing? That’s a nice pair of trousers you have.

So life finally got in the way a little bit. We’ve all been off doing separate things and making our way in the world but are now back and going to start bombarding you again with all the things us bastards are doing. Which is cool, right?

Firstly, the awesome gentleman known as Tom Robinson invited us on his BBC6 show to do a live session. We recorded three songs, one old, two new and talked with him about writing our upcoming debut album. We also met the awesome fella that is Craig Charles as he was finishing his DJ session. You can hear this session HERE.

Secondly we’re finally working on our debut album. We’ve been heavily listening to early 1960’s surf bands such as The Crossfires, The Pyramids, Johnny and the Hurricaines and Duane Eddy, and mixing them in with our blend of dance beats and punk vocals. It should be cool. We’ll be posting snippets online here as we go as well as posting reviews of stuff we’re listening to.

Lastly, on a purely personal note, I have never really liked cardigans. I feel they are an unnecessarily awful and ugly garment and not countless hipsters or Nirvana Unplugged will change my opinion. Sorry, but that’s just how I feel. I don’t know what a snood is by the way but I already hate them.

See you soon and thanks for all your support. Hopefully see you in a dirty club soon. Oh, and before we go, if you haven’t heard Diamonds by The Boxer Rebellion, it’s a great tune. We heard it through BBC’s speakers and it sounded awesome.

Yours,

Andrew (Wildebeast), Kenny (Sir Wordsworth), Marek (The Rocket Scientist) and Thom (Thomosexual)

The stupid-crazy-awesome-big 'live' room on Bloomsbury Square

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
