hi folks, here's a bit of news
As we've not yet finished our new record but aware that some people are keen to hear more This Is The Kit
as soon as possible, we decided to release an album of home recordings made in 2005. It's been out already in Japan, and Sunday Best records almost released it too but we remade many of the songs (for what became Krulle Bol, with Microbe records, in 2008) so it's been in the vaults a few years. Still sounds fresh and ripe as a conker though.

We've been much on the road with all our various mine-ups and guises over the summer (so here's a good time to say a big thanks to all the drummers who've helped us out recently: jamie, giles, philippe, hugo, maff, tan - you're all very hard to beat, thanks very much!)

other news that may be of slight interest is that the almost forgotten but still legendary Moonflowers
will be reforming for a special concert in Bristols classic Cube Cinema on 11.11.11. Will be quite psychedelic and very beautiful (and vice versa).
Also watch out for the Full Moon Orchestra
, currently in residence at bristols arnolfini til the end of the year. Its a two hour improvisation split into 10 minute chunks each hopefully conducted but someone else. Much fun is had and all ages and abilities welcome. Always psychedelic and beautiful of course.
by the by for those with insomnia i'd like to recommend Jack Kornfiels Buddhist Pscholgy audio book series. Always sends me right off and if it doesnt it's brilliantly interesting and most calming.
lastly, come to bristol and take part in our Greatness of The Magnificence presents Morricone
event at the wonderful St Georges Hall in Bristol Feb 23rd. looking for music-reading singers and instrumentalists of every description.
