Afternoon Purps!!!

So its post gig review time!!!
And today it’s being typed with a hang over, which pretty much says it all already…
First of all, a mahoosive thanks to everybody who bought a ticket and braved the cold to come n support us, we’d like to name you all but we’d be here all day!
We will put a shout out to Simon Cheshire though who organised a coach party over from Telford-shire-wood!! Cheers dude!!!
So as most of you know, we love playing The Robin 2, we get to support some great established bands and meet some proper cool people.
Last night was no different! Bon Giovi are a bunch of top guys and gave us some great feedback which was appreciated! And of course plenty of air guitar moments!!
Personally for us, we did have some tech issues which we’d like to apologise for but another big shout to Sean the sound guy, duckin n divin on the stage between us to sort the mics out! Never a great situation to be in but hey, thats rock n roll!!!
Overall, another top show! Great to have people in the audience asking for CD’s after we finished and even offering to pay when we were handing em out for free!!
That was probably our last gig this year, back to the studio now to write some new beauties!
We’re back at The Robin next year for sure but we’ll make an official announcement about when n who we’re supporting a bit closer to the date…
For now, thanks again for your support, its a pleasure to have you all on board!

Keep it purple, purps!!


Soap Covered Girls and Loaf of Meat

Moving on then!
After this weekends success we’re all feeling pretty motivated!
Alex & Neil went to see the mighty Foo Fighters last night, so they’ll be itching to get back in Shabby Road to play tonight.
Fletch has got a little video idea to accompany the acoustic track “Midnight train” (also on iTunes now) which we’ll record tonight. We’ll pop it YouTube as soon as…
Matty has a song idea to bring to the table, which we’ll hopefully look at in the coming sessions.
And Jonno is off to Germany to supply a bit of holiday cover for the touring “Maet Loaf”, one of the biggest Meat Loaf tribs in the UK, so we’d like to wish him good luck with that!
Gig wise, bit quiet now, nothing planned til we’re back at the Robin2 in November to support “Bon Giovi”, looking forward to that, but our calender is always subject to change, so if anything pops up sooner you’ll all be the first to know right here!
In the mean time, keep it PURPLE!!!

Fish eye anyone!?

So here’s our review of last nights events at the Robin2, trust me if you weren’t there, this will be a good read!!!We were on first, we had a good crowd considering the early slot and they were very receptive to our music! We’ve had some great feedback posted on our page which we always appreciate and we’re chuffed at the reaction to our new material… 

It was nice to see the Sex Pissed Dolls made the effort to stand and watch stage side too, much respect! 

So, a good start!

Second up were The SoapGirls, recently landed in the UK from Dubai, originally from South Africa and boy did they bring a stage show!!!

Serious attitude punk rockers, with an added twist of raw meat eating, fishes eye popping (no shit guys) and anything else that comes under the “pure debauchery” genre! (I may of just made that genre up!)

Backstage though, really cool chicks and a pleasure to (lick their raw) meet!

And finally the stars of the evening…

The Sex Pissed Dolls!!!!

For anybody who has not seen the dolls before, seriously, GO SEE EM! They are NOT just anothet covers/girl band, they ARE awesome!! 

All five of the Dolls are serious “serious” musicians, obviously with bags of experience and can work the crowd better than some of the major artists we’ve seen over the years! And again, backstage, really easy going and totally down to earth gals, with a real commitment to their music!

Matty had the pleasure of watching them from stage side with their manager for quite literally, a birds eye view, which he’s been very keen to bragg about since, so whoever let him up on stage, thanks (in a most sarcastic voice)!

All in all, what a cracking evening of music, fun, laughs and disgust, you had to be there and you really should be there next time any of the above gals are in town!!!

Welcome to our new followers, thank you for all the support, and anyone who spoke to us in person last night, from the crowd or from the backstage crew, it was great to meet you all!

Keep it purple, purps!


Sex Pissed Dolls Support

We have been added to a gig at The Robin 2 on September 5th! It’s supporting the sex pissed dolls, and the soap girls. Heard great things about these 2 and we are looking forward to warming up the crowd for them!

Hopefully you can all make it for what promises to be a great night! See us for ticket info, and If you get chance check out their Facebook pages, and we will see you at the Robin!!

Peace out

The Dusty Bin Syndrome

So after a busy month or two recording, videoing (is that a word!?) and gigging, its holiday time.
We’re signing off on a high after The Robin 2 gig on Friday, we got some great feedback from the other bands about our music and its one of our favourite local venues to play.
We’re back there in November supporting Bon Giovi, no prizes for guessing who they’re a tribute too.
In the mean time, we’ll be doing bits at shabby road over the next month until all our hols are out the way!
Thanks as always for your support and keep sharing our nonsense and spreading the purple!!!
