'Any Road Up' - first song from new album

We've started work on a new record. Here's your first chance to hear something from it. It's called Any Road Up and the beautiful video was made by our good friend Craig Stewart. Thanks Craig.

Opava, eastern Czech Republic

That Bandcamp

Download a free song - 'Pio Pio' - from our album by clicking the headline above and going to our bandcamp. You can also buy the rest of the album there, if you dig the free taster.

Blow away Dandelion

Invoking Stones lyrics in a headline by way of letting you know that our record is the 'featured album' on Jeff Grainger's show on Dandelion Radio this month. The show is repeated at intervals throughout August, ending on 31st. Also, we just recorded three songs for a session for the October edition of the same show, so listen up for that. We did a stripped back cover version of one of the more well known rock'n'roll greats of the early '70s, but we'll say no more for now.
