WE'RE BACK!! tour was a brain-expanding rock n' roll parTEA mystical girl gang time, we ate a leg of lamb in a massive and empty yha in the peak district, played giant jenga, visited the tape factory, met a fashion troll under a bridge, played some awesome shows and made a super-8 split music video with our kindred spirits Glass Window...
then we came back :(
oh well, i guess we'll get over it.
I took a few photos and some video, that will be on here SO soon!!
in the meantime here is the grass widow episode of UTRTV that Charles Chintzer Lai made the day we got back + one of us playing a show before we left town:

We played last night with our friends, the wonderful BELLIES at the Old Blue Last and we also met Grass Widow for the first time, they are AMAZING and we're super excited to be touring with them. Apart from a weekend tour we did with Bloody Knees back in August 09 we have never been on tour so we are just a bit EXCITED.
i drew this wierd poster, it has the Groke on it from the Moomins, a spirit who freezes everything she hovers over, apparently she symbolises depression and anxiety but i hope Tove Jansson would appreciate us appropriating the groke for our tour mascot, becuase playing music and creating positive things is like a way of overcoming bad energy or getting through the end of summer?? dance your cares away!!
We also have a load of new merch to take on tour, bags and t shirts courtesty of Andrew Milk (you should be able to get them from his webiste soon)
i have been hand sewing (really slowly, rachel is going to show me how to do it faster when we are in the car!) covers for the bootleg tape we made - it's a raucous and kinda messy recording of a show we played only last weekend! Club Milk is releasing it, its green and the covers are made of cool afro-fabric!
phew! time to go to brighton!
hope to see some of you guys
