Buried Structure

Saw this on the main A66 trunk road from Penrith to Keswick in the Lake District. What does it all mean?

Studio Mess

What a mess! How can I work in these conditions? The simple answer is I can't. Therefore the studio is getting its much delayed upgrade/three yearly tidy.

Each copy comes with an exclusive used postcard and contains a bonus track not found on the original CD version.

Orders will be shipped from Friday 16th April onwards. Please note that there are no pre-orders on this - it will be sold live. We'll be posting details some time on friday so keep checking back or join our mailing list to get information straight to your inbox.

Leaf Archives now available digitally

Our 2009 tour CD 'Leaf Archives' is now available digitally via Bandcamp. We have about 10 CD copies of it left which you can get from the shop . After that its gone. I hope to use the Bandcamp page to make available digitally any of our limited edition things once they've sold out as we really like people to be able to at least hear stuff whatever the medium.

Also we also have an exclusive track up there which you can download for free!

Forest of Sound is Dead

Hello. I'm just checking in after a few days avoiding getting soaked in the Lake District. I fell in a ditch, got icy water in my boots then as I took them off to attempt to squeeze some of the water out of my socks the boots fell apart leaving me with no choice but to stagger down the mountain with one sole flapping about wildly and my sock and the freezing ground seperated only by a thin piece of cardboard like material. Anyway. We have another gig in June......... this is the final gig to be promoted by top Leeds promoters Forest of Sound and we are pleased as punch to be involved.
