2nd East Coast Tour Show Tomorrow (USA)

Rehearsal tonight was gooooood. 2nd tour show tomorrow night at Boynton Beach with the mighty mighty Routine Scheme (I love rolling my ‘r’s when I say their name). It’s gonna be a blast of punk’n’roll fresh as a daisy crushed under a dirty Floridian truck tire.

Feeling battle hard & tour worn.
Checkya tomorrow,

Back In Florida

We’ve just arrived in Florida, near Boca Raton (in the south). Straight away you feel it, the humidity – like a tropical island. We flew down from New York this morning & straight to rehearsal at Fort Lauderdale. From there to ‘home’ at Ayala’s place. Little on the tired side now.

Next tour date, Wed at Boynton Beach. Check the shows page for full details.

Need sleep.
Checkya tomorrow.

PS: The state of insurance on rental cars in the US is fucking criminal. It costs twice as much to insure your car as it does to hire it – even a tiny little shit-box. Damn you to Hell insurance companies (and rental offices – who whack on their premiums). They know we have to have it – who’d be driving around the US without it? An evil con job.

Tour Countdown USA East Coast

We’re doing all that last-minute stuff for the tour – missed yesterday’s post (and just a short one for today). We’ve had some more shows added – which means some more phone calls, booking accomm, rental cars & getting posters freighted out. Rock n roll. Checkya tomorrow. Fires out. PS Check the shows page for full tour details (east coast USA). PSS Hit us up on Facebook.


Block Party Vid

Rain here in Brooklyn, finally. Spent the day down at Tiny Cup (wifi cafe just down the street). Finished putting this vid together – footage taken from the block party we had in our street on Saturday night.

The east coast tour starts next week in Florida. Psyching up…

Checkya tomorrow.

Block Party Awesomeness

The block party last night in Brooklyn was awesome. Max was dancing in the crowd. Got some great video. Just processing it now. I’ll have it up soon (tomorrow).


Checkya tomorrow.

Tour News – 15 Shows & Block Pary

Just announced the 15th show on next month’s US tour – Columbus, Georgia. Check the Shows page for full details.

Under 2 weeks to go now. We’ve been playing shows around New York & Florida for the past couple of months – and next month we’ll be travelling up the east coast, starting in Florida (after a festival in New York City), to finish back in the tri-state area.

In other news, we’ve gotton over the stolen bikes (coupla days ago). Went and hung out in Times Square tonight. Tomorrow is our block party: They’ll close off our Brooklyn street to traffic, pull out a big PA & let the sounds blast. Every street seems to get a turn. Tomorrow’s our’s.

Checkya later.

Bikeless Wonders

No post yesterday. Perhaps because yesterday people or persons unknown stole our bikes. They came through the front gate, snipped the lock cable & made off with the booty. Damn.

We had them for about three weeks, bought them 2nd hand – and now they’ve probably re-entered the NYC stolen bicycle circuit. Probably how we bought them so cheap in the first place… the cycle of life…

So we’re back on foot – but it’s only a couple more weeks til we’re down in Florida to start the tour. We’d intended to give the bikes back to the community here when we left – the thieves just extracted them a little earlier than we’d have liked.

Checkya tomorrow.
Fires out.


Tuesday NYC

Spent the day, again, at Tiny Cup, working on band stuff. We’re gettin’ a bunch of t-shirts done and another album pressing just arrived for the tour. I Drank way too much coffee today & now I feel like shit. We’re staying in tonight (our flat in Brooklyn). Sigh of relief.

Check out the new tour poster below (yesterday’s post)…

Checkya tomorrow.
Fires out.
