See you later, Alligator. Get fucked, Donald Duck.

It's 8am and I'm still drunk. It must be tour time. We have some new songs on the player above and we'll have some records with us for sale, too. We're playing the following places over the next week with the fabulous Spraynard.

6th - London
7th - Bristol
8th - Swansea
9th - Birmingham
10th - Leeds
11th - Edinburgh
13th - Manchester
14th - Brighton

Apologies for pulling out of the Gateshead show on the 12th, it's the Sussex Cup Final and the mighty Hawks are in it so I'm flying back home to watch #GLOBALFOOTPRINT

Anyway, come out to one of the shows and have a drink. Feel free to chat to us about the pros and cons of goal line technology, who you think should go to the euros, how much of a chud Luis Suarez is or just about your team's season in general. We are genuinely interested.

See you at the bar

Thank you, come again.


It took a ten months, but we finally have our second demo out on tape. It took so long because, well, we sort of forgot we were in a band and didn't do anything with it. Luckily Dany from Art for Blind got involved and and managed to organise us. Thanks, Dany. You can download / purchase the tape from here

Our next show is February 19 in Brighton w/ The Men and Shookworms

As for other stuff, Jay reckons that to be taken seriously as a 'band' we have to go on 'tour' Apparently these 'tours' consist of driving around in a van from one town to another and playing our songs for days at a time to people we don't really like. Needless to say, we all backed the idea hard and so decided not to take holidays to other countries with our wives and girlfriends, but instead rent a van and drive up and down the M1 for a week. I personally cannot wait and am a mixture of; Psyched! Pumped! and Stoked!

All the shows are with the awesome Spraynard (featuring friends of Ed Mcnulty and Mimi Gallagher) If you live in one of the towns that these tours always seem to go through, start getting excited. The order we will be playing these fine places is;

April 18 2012 SOUTHAMPTON
April 19 2012 KINGSTON
May 06 2012 LONDON
May 07 2012 BRISTOL
May 08 2012 SWANSEA
May 09 2012 BIRMINGHAM
May 10 2012 LEEDS
May 11 2012 EDINBURGH
May 12 2012 SUNDERLAND
May 13 2012 MANCHESTER
May 14 2012 BRIGHTON

We will also hopefully have a new record out by then. Expect lots of DUN-DUN's and BOOM-KA-BOOMBOOM-KAKA beats. Don't say all punk sounds the same, it doesn't. That's just ignorant.

We didn't break up, we just got lazy.

What with weddings, house moves and the start of the football season the band has taken a back seat in recent months. Alas, Hawks have a few away games coming up and we need something to do with our weekends, so we're getting back on it. We have a new tape coming out before the end of the year on Art for Blind Records, the songs from which you can stream above.

Our old demo
is still up for free download at if you want it. Hard copies can be found here. We'll no doubt let you know when the new record is out. We're planning some trips to the mainland in the new year, maybe Ireland and Wales too. For the time being, continue waiting right there on the edge of your seat.
