ONWARDS we rumble, as i have the following items to report for you:

ITEM! Do The Indie Kid was played on the Jimmy Possession show on Monday night - click that link to Listen Again!

ITEM! After protacted negotiations (Thee SPC: "Shall we?" Me: "Yes please!")The aforesaid single, as well as being available directly from us will ALSO be available from the Thee Sheffield Phonographic Company SHOP, where you can purchase many MANY excellent items!

ITEM! We get not one but TWO lovely mentions in interviews over on the Indietracks Blog. Aaah, it is a) DELIGHTFUL but b) PRESSURE INDUCING: I really REALLY ought to get on with writing The Show, oughtn't i?

ITEM! The Video for Do The Indie Kid is now up to the start of the first chorus! I spent a FRUSTRATING hour or so last night trying to get Song Vegas Movie Studio to Render MJPEGS (GLAMOUR) before giving up and spending ANOTHER hour using MovieMaker to convert them all, one by one, into individual normal AVI files. It's exactly this sort of exasperating problem that forced Godley & Creme into retirement!

ITEM! We are pretty much GO for ROCK this weekend at Pennfest - tickets, accomodation and even PRACTICE TIME have all been booked for what has turned into a mini-tour for us - almost 48 hours of Validators! WHOO! Here is the Proper Press Release for the whole event - if you're in Leeds on Saturday or London on Sunday, do come, it'll be GRATE!
