Latest Live Videos

I mentioned in the last blog post there was some video of the Fiddler's Elbow gig last week floating around. It has emerged - thanks kindly to Christina Jansen who popped along to see us play but being a professional photographer, couldn't help but get a few shots and some video!

This video below is the first public recording of our new song 'Version Of You' with the full band. I guess this blog is a good enough place to give it it's first airing...


The thing that really surprised me was the quality of the sound mix out the front. It always sounds different to what you can hear on stage, and usually on stage there are important elements you can't hear properly while performing. The front of house mix sounded great though - so all credit to sound guy.

Here also is the first recorded performance of us doing 'Never' with Bora on bass and Gary on keys. It's also the first video in front of a live audience, the previous video being done in a rehearsal studio.


It's worth pointing out that 'Never' was a song written by a mate of mine (Tristan Baker) and his band Scapegoat. I heard their version of it and loved it enough to add it to our list. The songwriters are: Tristan Baker, Nigel Cadzow, Helen Cadzow and Phil McGowan.

Show Us Your Ts


It's a surreal ego boost to look down off stage and see people in the audience wearing your t-shirts (especially when they're dancing)! Tuesday night at the Fiddler's Elbow was only the second show where we had t-shirts available and I counted at least four people wearing them!

Tiana and Lisa (who played guitar with Emma Danelon who was supporting us) were happy to take some photos in the t-shirts and a few with us as well - which they sent to us after the gig.

The show went really well too. According to Sharky behind the bar we "really entertained the crowd", he said as he put two ticks next to us in the big book of bands...

Apparently there are some really good photos and some video of us on stage which I look forward to seeing soon I hope. Thanks Christiana, Steve and Harvey for your help with this!

Mini Tour

We've been pretty busy lately. We're half way through a stint of four gigs in two weeks which while not sounding a lot is the busiest we've been to date. Both last Friday at the RBL in Worcester Park and the previous Friday at the Shortwave Cafe went really well.

We've also gone from supporting Sweden's Skuldpadda tomorrow night (Tuesday 24th July) at the Fiddler's Elbow to being asked to headline with them supporting us! And we've got another show coming up next Saturday after which Gary heads off to Edinburgh for a month long gig with the festival up there - so we might have to take a forced short break from gigging after Saturday. And then to top it off the St Moritz Club in Wardour Street, Soho made contact this morning to ask us if we could play there over the next few months!

It's not like a proper tour but it almost feels a bit like a mini tour, especially with having to organise the logistics and marketing for every gig individually.

So if you'd like to give us a hand - especially with the advertising - please link to our shows and social media on your social media. The more people who come along to these shows the more of them we'll be offered, and the better those shows will be!

Second Fiddle


After last Wednesday's successful gig at the Fiddler's Elbow, we've been invited back to support Skuldpadda on tour from Sweden at their show on Tuesday 24th July!

We've got a bit more time to plan this one so hopefully we'll manage to get even more people along to the show.

We're also looking at shooting some multi camera video - possibly for a new TV show looking to expose new bands and live talent - (stay tuned...)

We might possibly give away some free t-shirts to those who turn up early too. Either way it should be a great show so put it in your diary now! Tuesday 24th July - Fiddler's Elbow - Denzeity supporting Skuldpadda (we're on stage around 9pm). See you there!
