taken at ladyfest

some photos of us playing ladyfest @ the relentless garage.

it was only half seven. it was only half full. the sound was horrendous, the crowd subdued & the x factor was busy lighting up living rooms across the uk.

our first live with anna & kristina may've slipped under the radar, but we know it was the start of something better.

paris debut next thursday @ point fmr.

chloe - vocals, melodica
joel - keys, bass, guitar, electronics
anna - guitar, bass, backing vocals
kristina - keys, bass, electronics, backing vocals

battant vous offre

this took awhile. a mix we did for telerama. skip the interview - it's in french and aside from one or two cat cries in the background, it's the music that matters

mix de la semaine

Tuesday, 6 July 2010


been away. seems like ages. little candy bracelet dangling off the arm - got sticky in the sun then shocked to pieces by a sharp scottish wind. the t is for tennent's, chloe.

so the rock with no roll ibiza, left me muddled enough to post the wrong link last week. albeit only for a second. but nothing gets buried by google and as eager as i am to shovel out content, telerama have yet to publish our mix.

but we're waiting. and working hard. and we'll be allowed to share it soon.

in the meantime, what i hear

is beats in space

(grammatically speaking).

hmmm lost treasure

watching x files again. old habits/bad habits. the mind begins to wander mid another alien come government conspiracy theory. i started thinking about the long ago time. the time before some idiot stole my mac.

today i rediscovered a bit of a lost archive, a few bits of music from back in the mac glory days that had been lurking in my sent box. a lot of it was things that had escaped my ipod, stuff that i thought had gone the same way as the said mac. anyway. after trawling through a few files came a moment of serendipity. there it was, sent messages, attached file 'jolly_maties_intro.mp3.'

i'd hit gold; a little something chloe, ivan and i put together for a pirate themed children's cartoon named jolly maties.

recording this was one of the funniest afternoons of my entire life, which up to about an hour ago i'd completely forgotten about. i had to sit out of the studio during chloe's vocal take as every time she sang it i could not stop laughing and as a result nor could she. as we've been on a bit of a pirate/cowboy tip figured...

cowboys & cowgirls part II

heads down in the spare bedroom turned studio, the conversation turns back to the golden age of cowboys; 1867-1886. cowboys and cowboys, pirates and cowboys, pirates and the hubble space telescope. there's a middle ground in all of this somewhere i'm sure.

here is always somewhere else

cowboys & cowgirls

not sure where it came from but there is a definite twang resonating from the studio. joel and i are like wieners sizzling on an open fire. can't wait to get off the stick. album's a hair away from completely written and plan is to have a single on teacher's desk come back to school, record ready for the winter.
expect open space, harvest moons, tin can telephones, some sticks & stones and maybe a few broken bones.
beaming ear to ear grins. a touch pleased with where we're going.

first off

we've been reminded time and time again of the importance of an online presence and considering our aversion to social networking, a blog seems our best option - first and foremost as an exercise to enlighten our own sieve brains when all this is done and dusted. assuming no binary tsunami wipes away all the online content, we'll be able to look back and reminisce...
