This weekend has been pretty busy for us, Saturday we filmed a new music video on top of Devil’s Dyke which was beyond beautiful! We got so lucky with the sunset, the mist, the colours, honestly, some of the footage we have is just gorgeous.
Sunday we played a gig at The Cowley in Brighton for Paul Stapleton as part of a folk/punk weekender and it was a great way to spend Sunday afternoon. It was like playing a gig in your friends living room, completely chilled, intimate and we met some awesome peeps!
Thanks to Paul for putting us on, and thanks to Sarah-Kye Faulkner for the behind the scenes photos, roadie duties, additional cameraman and general band helper outer, you’re awesome
Better late than never but we just wanted to say a big thank you to Overhead Wires Music, Andy Voakes, Sam the sound man, Bear Bozeman, Romarni Brytz and everyone who was at The Brunswick last night. We had an awesome time playing for you and we really hope you enjoyed our set!
We’ll be back down in Brighton in a few weeks time, but firstly we’re off to Maidenhead!

We’ve a new song finished too, so expect to hear that in our set!
It’s the morning after the night before (well a couple of mornings actually) and we had a blast at Beats From The Bedsit! Thanks go out to The Greys Pub and Paul Stapleton for putting on an excellent event. We felt that it went pretty well, so much so in fact we played TWICE due to a band dropping out.
Also thanks to everyone who said nice words and cheered after our songs, as well as the guys who signed up to the mailing list, cheers!
We had a fancy photographer (Simon Brice) document the event, so expect some sexy photos of us and guitars very soon!
Yep just two days away now from our first gig! *Beats From The Bedsit* Emotions are running from uncontrollable excitement to “we should just give up music right now” in the Boxtape camp, and that’s ok!
Being only two days away means we’re pretty much primed to go, including Kieren putting his amp back together. The Delta Blues has been cleaned, new valves put in and a master volume added to the circuit, check out the mod and the sexy red knob below 😀
Prepare to have your faces washed with glorious warm waves of soothing distortion. 3pm, The Greys Pub, Brighton, Sunday 12th June.
Now it’s starting to get close to our first ever gig – Beats From The Bedsit we’re really pushing to get our live sound up to scratch. For Kieren this means tinkering, most notably taking his old Delta Blues amp apart and giving it a bloody good clean; new valves are going in and possibly the adding of a master volume switch too.
If you’ve ever wondered what a Delta Blues looks like when you take it apart, here it is –
Aside from all that we’ve been taking stock of which tracks we have / don’t have demos of, so we can start getting them finished and start recording properly, woo!
