Unusually, real news:

There are now THREE tracks from the forthcoming album available for a listening at on our myspace and facebook pages:

Blackwall (awaiting further mixing and mastering)
Boys Who Left The Band (awaiting mastering only, possibly)
I'll Tell Me Ma (awaiting some new parts, mixing and mastering)

Encouragingly, mister Barrie Barlow has called us up out of the blue to ask for some tracks to bundle with his studio's A&R mail-out (we think - frankly we're not sure what they're for), so we're scrambling the Aledmobile and might get more recent mixes sooner than expected to upload too.

The other nine tracks...will arrive too. Putting "Christmas" behind us, the new target is to be mixed, mastered, pressed and printed in time for St. Patrick's day in mid March, wish us luck!

Unusually, more news:

We've got a nice little collection of gigs spread out over the summer and the South of England which have just recently been announced - but don't forget we'll be filling in all these gaps too so keep looking at the myspace and drop us a line at if you've anything for us to do.

7/2/09 Brighton

12/2/09 London

14/3/09 Brighton

29/4/09 Reading

22/5/09 Southampton

17/7/09 Bath

Shit a whole brick there's more news:

Somehow we've been finding the time recently to get in some proper songwriting, and happily we've managed to chuck together at least one or two tunes we're pretty chuffed with, including our first ever original set of jigs/reels. These will be refreshing our set in the weeks and months to come, so come and cast your sweet ears in our direction as soon as you can.

Don't forget, we're always open to suggestions for lyrics or tunes, either unnoticed standards which you think we might be able to have a bash at or something self-penned - don't be shy! Drop us a quadrametric line to and we'll be sure to take your suggestions seriously.
