Another new piece of vinyl from the past. This time 'The Hip' first brought back from Canada in my formative music years, pretty much unheard of in the UK. Other artists discovered on this trip were Soundgarden, Collective Soul, The Screaming Cheetah Wheelies, Our Lady Peace, Temple of the Dog & Better Than Ezra #thetradgicallyhip #roadapples #vinyl

Please stick it in your diaries, spread the word and well be in touch shortly with more details...

I'm very sorry to say I've just been informed that our gig next Saturday 12th March at Perfecto Wine Bar in Sevenoaks with The Ackerley's has been CANCELLED! Apparently it is under new management and they have cancelled all upcoming events at the venue.
We're really disappointed and apologise to anyone who had made plans to come along. We'll let you know as soon as we have anything else booked up in the area.
28 January 2016 (Thu 12pm)
Thanks everyone who made it out yesterday to catch our set in Tunbridge Wells. Sorry we didn't all get a chance to chat to everyone who came out specially to see us, but it was very much appreciated I assure you. Next show is Saturday 12th March at Perfetto Wine Bar in Sevenoaks. We'll be playing a nice long set and have got The Ackerleys supporting us so it should be a top night. Stick it in them diarys!
21 January 2016 (Thu 5pm)

Ice cream anyone? This the track (Tu De Che) that got placed on a couple of TV ads in Eastern Europe a few years back for a well known ice cream brand. If featured some pretty cool food landscapes and could be found on YouTube once upon a time, but just had a search and couldn't find it anywhere. Anyway enjoy your Friday and please share if you like the track.
