that’s a wrap @saemilano

Thanks very much to Ivan Rossi and SAE Milano for hosting us for the last three days.  We’re super happy to have been able to squeeze in this recording session before we head back to France.  We even managed to film enough material to put up a video for both songs.  Later, people!  Right now I have to systemize for tomorrow’s departure.  And drink a beer.  Maybe two.  I think there is a pizza with my name on it.  Cheers!

Record Store Day!

Howdy folks!  Today is Record Store Day, so make sure you get out there and support your local store by buying some new music.

We are super happy to be doing our part by playing a set at 3pm in the afternoon at Mr Dead and Mrs Free in Berlin.  Probably we’ll be there early to buy a few records before we play.

Here’s the link to the store, and if you are in town, come on down.

Last Rehearsal

Hello! Here we are at our last rehearsal in the studio just outside Milan this morning.  We are sure going to miss our morning coffee at the best coffee machine in the city.  It’s more like coffee flavoured water than coffee actually, but for some reason it has become an integral part of our rehearsal routine.

I think we are pretty much ready.  We’ve bought some new stuff to make us even louder than before (much), attempted to pack it tetris-style into the car (it fits, just), and written and re-written the set list.  We’ve had a run through of the Beasts of Bourbon song that we’re going to play with Head On next Saturday at Mondo Bizarro (that’s the 16th), and run through the song that we think Headsucker is going to ask us to play.

This weekend I’m going to stock up on car snacks and neurofen, get all the merch sorted out and packed up, and decide how many different outfits I can possibly fit into my bag.  Writing new songs has taken a back seat for the moment because there just hasn’t been the free time to concentrate on them.  Nonetheless, we have a couple already added to the set.  We’ll be playing the entire album in our show, all 10 songs.  I’m rather pleased about that.

Looking forward to seeing you on the road next week if you are in France!  Come and say hello, or bon soir as the case may be.

Bisous from us

 

Concert and Music Video Release – Ohibò, Milano

We’ve been working hard this month getting ready to play this next concert at Circolo Arci Ohibò in Milan, this Friday 28th September. We’ve got Alessio on the drums as usual, and we’re joined by Tommaso playing keys and doing some backing harmonies as well.

It’s not just our usual concert however, because we are finally ready to release our new music video. We worked with Viola Barbato, who also directed the last video of Il Genio (Tahiti) and we are so happy with the final product. It’s not your usual music video, so stay tuned, or if you are in Milan, come and see it Friday. Ohibò has a big screen!
