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

We’re pleased to be doing a show with Glasgow’s underwear-destroyingly good United Fruit. It’s at Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh on the 24th of March, and also features local sassy boys Birdhead.

Before then we’ll also be playing Fatalists album launch at Henry’s Cellar Bar on the 21st of February, and at the Roxy 171 in Glasgow on the 27th with We Came From the Sea. SUPER!

Thanks to anyone who’s ambled along to a gig in the past 12 months, or put us on, or put us up, or put up with us. Have a mince pie x

Here’s the video for THE SKY IS FALLING IN, directed by Ciaran Lyons. We hope you enjoy it.

The song is available from http://electricco.bandcamp.com on 7″ or as a download.

 

this is (probably) the final Return of Order gig of 2013, as we’ll be taking a bit of time out to concentrate on our second album. Min Diesel and Pinact are both great bands, if you like garage-y / slacker stuff with fuzz pedals this might well be up your avenue. It’s a late show (midnight kick-off!) and it’s free entry, or you can chuck a few quid in the donations bucket if you’re feeling like a decent human being.
