13/12/11 : Christmas is coming

Christmas is coming so it's time to wheel out this old gem again...

Stop The Cavalry (Jona Lewie cover) by The Lost Cavalry

We've had an amazing year - Jonny joined as our new drummer and we've moved on a lot musically I think, our new songs (a yet unrecorded!) have a feel to them that we're pretty excited about, We'll record them soon as we can in 2012.

It seems that every Christmas someone new joins the band - this year, we're pleased to officially welcome Derek Yau as our new cello player! Derek played guest cello for us on our last EP and was my co-composer on the Booked Out film soundtrack (the film will be released in 2012 by the way). It's good to have him on board!

Enjoy your mince pies! Mark.x

29/11/11 : The Flood - recorded live with Keston Cobblers' Club

Our EP launch for 'Snow City Radio' was an amazing night, thanks so much to everyone who came along and especially to We Walk On Ice and Keston Cobblers' Club for playing, and playing so well. The room was crammed and it was very hot! We finished the night by inviting Keston Cobblers' Club back on stage to play a couple more songs, one of which was our tune 'The Flood' - so here it is with ten of us on stage playing it together - it was quite something!
