a video on the radio

The next gig is on 2nd July:
As usual some songs will be making a debut, along with others e've not played for a while making a come back.

The Speed Of Sound will be playing two sets, opening and closing the night. Troy Fridge is playing a solo set as well as DJ-ing, we have Nina Gerstenberger and President Ray-Gun guesting in a superb four act line up.

Doors at 7pm and it runs oil midnight plus the added attraction of modestly prices real ale. All taking place on major bus routes and a matter of yards from a railway station.

The Bunny knows this will be a good night out.

An indescribably fantastic night for the 50th Anniversary of Bob Dylan's 1966 Manchester gig when everything changed... not a commemoration of 'the "Judas" shout' it was a marking of the birth of 'loud'. Before Mr D's '66 tour amps were just used to balance volume to an acoustic drum kit, regardless of the size of the venue. Since then amplification is used to make EVERYTHING louder. Bands couldn't hear themselves above the audience noise and May'66 is when that changed. thanks Bob. And thanks to everyone that came including a lot of people that were at the Free Trade Hall half a century ago. 

Drummers are always missing in photographs, Paul is there too.

We've been quietly working on a t-shirt with photographer Natalie Paddick, we previously collaborated with her on the videos for Shut All The Clubs and Checkered Land, and have also used some of here pictures on our gig posters.
A selection of her 'boxer 'photographs are exhibiting at Saatchi gallery online, just
find their website and tap her name into 'search'.

It's a great pleasure to work with her again and they are very striking bold graphics, exactly what a band t-shirt should be like.

We'll have some modelled shots of the prototype in  a week or so, in the meantime here 's a preview:
