Hello. We’re not sleeping, just recording. Album #2 is a-comin’. In the meantime, here’s a poster for our final show of the year (and Thin Privilege‘s last show EVER), drawn with a pencil and coloured in on the computer by our very own Stewart Allan:
Hiya! We went into our rehearsal room and set up some microphones with our pal Niall who cleverly captured sounds in his special box. Here are two of the things we recorded, demo versions of a couple of tracks from our second album (work on which begins imminently). See what you think.
FUN FACT: The bones of ‘In the Sun’ were composed about 30 feet away from Boleskine House, where Aleister Crowley used to live. Wild, eh?
Here’s a few upcoming shows in what Dave Benson Phillips refers to as ‘Mad March’. As far as months go, March is one of the best in my book. Not really. I don’t have much of a preference. Still…
On the 24th we’ll be wallowing in the pleasant darkness of Sneaky Pete’s with United Fruit and Birdhead. This is United Fruit’s first tour in like, a year, and they’re going to be playing loads of new material in preparation for their second album dropping this year, so you really should come. Birdhead are also taking off (c wot i did ther?) and will dazzle you with their strange combination of Motorik drumming and wonky, guitar-chased bleeps. You can buy advance tickets for this here: http://unitedfruitsneakys.brownpapertickets.com
We’ll be doing a couple of shows with Stonehaven pals everythingwesayisfact, firstly at the Roxy 171 with cheeky boys Pinact, then up to Cellar 35 in Aberdeen with Star Rover and Lenin Death Mask. JOIN US IF YOU WANT CHEERS
