Hello. So it’s halfway through the year, and good fuck we’ve been busy. Firstly, our new song The Cowboy is done and dusted and available for listening and buying. Among the many flattering comments we’ve had: ‘yes’, ‘thanks’, ‘that’s good’, ‘a triumph’ (The Sun).

Next up, our line-up has changed a bit. At the end of 2012 we waved goodbye to long-
suffering serving trumpeteer Greg who is trying to break into the high-energy Putney badminton scene and so could not afford the time to be in the band. We replaced him with an impertinent young upstart named ‘Big Dave’ whose lips appear to be made from cast iron and who is undoubtedly a worthy addition to our ranks. Welcome Dave. Dave says hi.
And then we thought, ‘is 7 members enough?’ Surely 8 members is better! So we recruited guitarist and general soundscape noisesmith MIKE PAIN. We’ve gone one louder. Mike made his DFATHOF debut at our June gig in Shepherd’s Bush. Welcome Mike. Hang on…is 8 members enough??? Etc etc forever, until everyone, including you, is in the band. Pics of these new people can be found in the pics bit.
Next gig is the Hootananny in Brixton, Fri 5 July. Free in before 10! If you haven’t been to the Hooty you haven’t experienced its party atmosphere and general hedonistic abandon vibe (read: drunk).
More gigs in the ‘gigs’ link. And more recording to follow in the coming months!
