January 2020 Update
Hello and welcome to our first ever monthly update!
We’ll try to keep it brief but the idea is to give you an update of what we’re currently doing and what we’ve got coming up – and to throw in a few other bits and pieces too. Subscribe to our mailing list and you'll get this straight in your inbox ahead of the crowd!
So, without further ado, here are some updates:
All being well, on Tuesday 7 January, you should be able to hear us on Absolute Radio’s ‘Hometime with Bush & Richie’ podcast. We’re interviewed at the end and then play a short blast of Sirocco to finish the show – which will hopefully be repeated in each episode for a week or so. Anyway, it was great fun to do, so check it out here and see what you think.
On Thursday 23 January, the first episode of Susannah Constantine’s ‘My Wardrobe Malfunction’ series drops. We’re the ‘house band’ so our music (composed especially for the show) will appear at various stages throughout each episode. The podcast itself is hilarious – each week a high-profile guest discusses their relationship with clothes and reveals their most memorable clothing disaster. We’ll post the link when it’s up. But in the meantime, click here to find it on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or the website.
Scala Radio. As many of you know, the Scala team are huge supporters of ours – and we love them too! If you haven’t tuned in to the station before, it’s well worth a listen – and you may well hear one of our tracks on there. Click here to find it.
Diary date: On Wednesday 13 May we’re playing a lunchtime gig (though they may prefer to call it concert…) at Newbury Corn Exchange as part of the prestigious Newbury Spring Festival. Booking details should be up soon but click here for the main site.
We’re planning to release a new cover every fortnight in 2020 and have asked for track suggestions. We’ve had some brilliant ideas so far but please keep them coming any time, either in comments here, on our social channels or by emailing us here.
Finally, here are a couple of photos taken on our most recent shoot with the brilliant Ben Anker. We were a lot happier than they might suggest!
