There you go folks. Three quality turns for the punter-friendly price of £5.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I promise we have not been idle.
Firstly, and most importantly, the drummer has a new drumkit. He is very proud of it. Here it is.
Ok, so, let’s get to the point then.
You can buy tickets directly from us for £6. Either use the band’s paypal thing here:
and your tickets will be available for collection on the door at Tut’s,
or send us a message here and I’ll come meet you down the pub and deliver them in person (this offer applies to the Glasgow area only, anywhere within the Glasgow Local bus zone). With a fan base as select as ours, one can afford the luxury of the personal touch.
Now, here is the pot sweetener: every ticket sold will receive a free mp3 of one of the demos from the recent sessions. Pick a number between 1 and 14 and let us know where to send it.
There ye are then.
Sorry we’ve been a bit quiet lately. We’re out to play this Saturday, 13th October, in my home town of Cumbernauld at the Cumbernauld Theatre, a lovely place.
What else…Oh aye, the album. It looks like we start work in January. Our set now consists of mostly unrecorded new songs. The only way you can hear them right now is at the live shows, which I kind of like.
Ok, so, this Saturday 13th October@ Cumbernauld Theatre with The Preventers, 7.30pm kick off. Tell your friends. Message ends.
Live shows in June are-
Live at the Kelvingrove bowl on Sunday June 10th featuring a cast of thousands- http://content.bandzoogle.com/users/MeccaHoldingCo/files/event-poster.png
A tale of two cities, for two nights only, featuring a quadruple bill of pop thrills. Live shows in Edinburgh and Glasgow with the Starlets, Lenzie Moss, Ally Kerr and Cineplexx, all for £5 (cheap). Tell your friends.
There’s a Biff solo show this month in Glasgow as guest of open mic buddy and new honorary Glaswegian Mr Jamie Hay (May 24th at Tchai Ovna). Full band show confirmed for Glasgow on Friday June 29th at the Captain’s Rest and we hope to soon confirm news of an Edinburgh show around then too. We continue to beaver away at the demos for the album, close to a final song choice. Close but no cigar as yet. It’s uphill all the way, and that’s on a good day.
Show this Friday, 6th April. It is our great pleasure to be opening for the great Martin Stephenson and the Daintees at King Tut’s, Glasgow. The “Boat to Bolivia” album was a big influence on me. I loved the idea that a band could be many different things. Pop, Indie, Jazz, Blues, Folk, Skiffle – the Daintees are both all and none of these things. The beautiful and haunting “Rain” from “Boat to Bolivia” will be worth the ticket price alone. All the best, biff x.
Ok, here’s what’s what. Lunatic/Genius Producer Jari Haapalainen still thinks we’re two songs short of a decent album so we’re currently giving the barrel another scrape to see what we can come up with. More news on that once there is any news on that.
At the last home game in January we were rank rotten but we must have scored a jammy equaliser in injury time which has earned us a replay. We play on Friday March 23rd, once again at the Cafe Rio, Partick ( scene of the initial debacle). This show will be dedicated to all those who were unfortunate enough to attend the Rio show in January. We owe you one.
We are very honoured to have been once again asked to open for the wonderful Martin Stephenson and the Daintees. This show is at King Tut’s Glasgow on Friday April 6th.
I think that’s all for now. As you were.
