Music Video Update:We shot the music video for Mercenary this weekend. Helen Raine and her crew are awesome, was so great to work with them! We are very excited to see the final product. We will keep you posted.
We have a show at Zula Bar in Cape Town on Friday the 2nd of April with The Lua Union. Promises to be a great night.
Thank you to everyone who came to watch us with Ashtray Electric and Wrestlerish, it was a superb show. We played a new song, tentatively named "Apollo".
So things are falling into place nicely; once the video is complete we will be working on a tour up to Pretoria and Jo'burg later in the year.

Gig News:We have a superb show with Wrestlerish and Ashtray Electric on Friday the 26th of March at Mercury in Cape Town. Wrestlerish are releasing their album on this tour to the Cape, so we all going to bring our A-game.
Music Video News:
Another meeting has decided, after many postponements, that we will definitely be shooting the video for Mercenary on the weekend of the 26th of March. Very excited.
We recorded another track last week, adding finishing touches soon, and then we going to master it. This song is probably the rawest of our songs, we are proud of it. Mike, the graduate, has been working hard on the album design. This album is going to be a honest piece of hard work from the four of us.
Financing the video and album is kind of costly, but as soon as we have some clarity from our respective ATM receipts, we are going to make something to keep you warm in winter, sipping on a coffee or tea, late at night, listening to our album, watching the trees.
Back in the day :)

So we making progress with our recording, ironing out details and stuff. Music video is postponed to be shot by the 27th of Feb. Its eleven days till Johnny Foreigner so we getting very excited for our first gig of the year!
Things are taking its time with James R sorting out stuff for his studies in England, Jimmy getting involved on film sets with massive explosions, Mike plying his trade at making his mark at tech in CT and Rob learning how to become a teacher. If "The Past is a Grotesque Animal" then the future is an androgynous fetus: Unknown but exciting none the less :)
