Old TV
I've just spent the morning getting some bits ready for Revival next month, we're all pretty excited about the prospect of playing some classic video games and having a few beers. As well as pedalling our merch we'll also have our album available to listen to on 8-Track and today I managed to get our music videos sorted out so we can have them playing through an old school TV. If you don't have a ticket yet, you can grab one here:

Micro Men

We're now proud sponsors of 'The Centre for Computing History' and if you don't believe me you can check us out on the sponsors page right here.

These are exciting times for the museum, they've finally found a home in Cambridge after two years of searching but they're still working hard to raise funds so if you fancy helping them out then head on over to their site and make a donation, sponsor them or purchase something from the museum shop. I think you'll agree it's a great cause and they're a great bunch of people. They were even kind enough to lend us the BBC Micro that was used in our music video.

Also! Founder Jason Fitzpatrick was heavily involved in the what we here at the British IBM refer to as "The greatest film ever made!" and aswell as providing props and techincal advice for Micro Men he even managed a cheeky cameo. Check him out in this picture alongside Hermann Hauser.

Q Radio Session - Free Download

Written by Aidy.

Q Radio - the British IBMA little while ago we were lucky enough to play an acoustic session at the Q/Kerrang offices in Birmingham and since then we've had a few people email asking us if they could download a copy anywhere. Well we've finally got hold of the audio from the lovely people at Q and we've decided to give it away as a free download. Because we're nice like that!

If you cast your eyes over our sites menu you'll see that we've added a new section entitled "Shareware". We intend to use this section to give away random live recordings and any other bits we feel may be of interest to a budding British IBM fan. Any problems downloading or playing just drop us an email, it's always good to hear from you :-)

From Bedrooms to Billions

Written by Aidy.

We've been really excited about this upcoming documentary since we first heard about it last year and we're even more excited about the whole thing now our music has actually been used in the new trailer! The whole project is shaping up nicely and the guys behind the it (Nicola and Anthony Caulfield) have done a great job getting interviews. There are some massive names in it and I'm particularly excited about the fact that Matthew Smith, creator of Jet Set Willy and Manic Miner, has been found alive and well and is making an appearance.

Anyway, watch the trailer and help these guys out it's definatley a worthwhile cause and there are also some incredible retro goodies to be grabbed from their Kickstarter:
