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.
Yesterday we had our first big boy practice at QM studios, and boy was it fun! It’s a little studio in our home town that we’ve been going to for years, but we haven’t been back for a while. It was really helpful to start playing these songs loud and start finalizing effects / sounds and dynamics! As well as running through all the tracks we have (getting them gig ready) we started work on a new shiny idea.
Yes, we know all our songs are “new” to you as we haven’t released anything yet, but this is the first of the “second batch” if you like. We recorded a little sneak preview clip above!
Speaking of releasing things, we’ve been having a few discussions and would like to get a solid track out into the world relatively soon. A loose plan is to get some rough demos down, pick the track we think works best a single, then find a nice studio to record it in.
We finally we did it, we recorded the first Boxtape song! Not only that we did it in style as a live performance video. The track is called “This is a story about a” and falls more on our experimental / art side than our postrock side.
We hope you enjoy it, we had great fun on a very grey and lazy autumn Sunday recording this.
