This was originally going to be just Dave and myself doing a stripped back acoustic set but Paul became available at the last minute and we ended up playing as a full band, which was cool. AlexFest is a new-ish mini festival type type thing hosted at The Alex in Cambridge. The organisation was a bit ramshackle, had some people turn up to watch us at The Alex, unaware of the second stage which was in a car park across the road where half the bands and ourselves played. Was a fun gig though and was great to finally see Too Cool Kid play.
Next up we're playing a free gig at The Corner House, Cambridge on Saturday 25th July 2015.

Was great to be invited back to do another BBC Introducing session with Tom Simkins, he actually gave us a trophy the first time we ever played to commemorate the fact that we were the last ever Thursday Guests. I still have that trophy five years later!
This time it was just me as Paul and Dave were busy. I played Mikie and I'm Just Like You from the upcoming album Psychopaths Dream in Black and White and chatted with Tom about recording the new album and getting back to gigging again.

Just in case you missed it, Psychopaths Dream in Black and White got its first bit of airplay this Saturday when Tom Simkins played We Were the Stars on BBC Introducing Cambridgeshire. You can listen again here: http://bbc.in/1RknJTx
We're also booked in for a live session in the not too distant future. More news on that to come!
I now have the CDs in my possession and they look awesome! I've spent the past couple of evenings packaging them up along with the T-Shirts. So if you pre-ordered Psychopaths Dream in Black and White then you should be receiving it shortly. Once that's done I'll begin the process of putting this out to the rest of the known Universe via our online store and iTunes etc.. If you simply can't wait then feel free to ping me an email.
