wow, it’s been nearly a year since this was updated, and in all that time, NOTHING has happened IKIHNC-wise!!
where’s aaron? until he comes back from canada we can’t play or release our album. in fact, the only place you can hear our new album (new as in nearly a year old but unreleased) is on the jukebox in cafe kino in bristol. it’s an exclusive!! maybe it should only be released in jukeboxes across the country…? if you want it you have to buy a jukebox!! wild.
goodbye aaron!!!!!! see you in a year!!!!!!!!!!!!!! have fun in canada!
this site will slowly grind to a halt in that time, but before it does, videos and album details and photos will be uploaded, so check back soon!!!
we have finished recording our album. it’s called “these are our numbers” and has somewhere between 15 and 18 songs, depending on what we put on various compilations…. it sounds good i think, it was fun to do and nice to have fránçois taking more of a role in the playing… it should be out by september on stitch-stitch records.
i’ve loaded some old MP3s onto the recordings page, including all of the covers cd we did that sold out ages ago, so you can hear some stuff there!
yikes – it’s been ages and we’ve broken all our promises!! our tour of america and canada didn’t happen for lots of reasons, maybe next year! we’re making an effort to finish our new record and plan on recording the final things for it at the cube cinema next week with fránçois. it’ll feature lots of new hits that we’ve been playing in recent live shows and also some newer songs that we haven’t played or quite finished writing yet!
we played some fun shows with french toast, major matt mason usa, pantsuit… exciting!!
we’re trying to organise a few shows around britain before the end of summer so if you can help us out then let us know – we could play in your house or in the local stadium, it’s up to you!
sorry for not updating in a while. the tour looks like it’s going to go ahead, which is pretty exciting, and we’re slowly writing more songs. we recorded a couple with fránçois the other day, and hopefully we’ll have something new out soon. i have a new cat called foot-foot and aaron has a new bed, so he can finally get some sleep. we hope you have a very happy christmas and we’ll see you soon. rock hard.
we’ve decided to try and go to america and canada next summer possibly with my two toms and fránçois. we semi-randomly picked out a route based on places where we know people and places that sound nice… here is that list –
washington, philadelphia, new york, providence, boston, somewhere nice in maine, montreal, winnipeg, toronto!!, detroit (ann arbour / royal oak / yipsilanti), chicago, olympia, portland, salem, crescent city, san francisco, oakland, LA…
if you can help us out with shows or have any better suggestions then please email us! thanks x
thanks to everyone that’s been to see us at recent shows, especially at bring yourself fest, which was the most fun!! it involved pyjamas, me running to reach a bell and fránçois playing from the rafters! there are pictures in our fancy new compartmentalised pictures section!
if you have any pictures of us playing live, please email them to us! also, i’ve made a little section for the “i know i have no collar” in other languages, so get emailing those translations to us!! oh and come see us support jeffrey lewis in bristol on 17th september!
thanks to everyone who came to see us on the stitch-stitch tour the other week… we met some really nice people… thanks especially to the here shop, homocrime, lesbo pig, fránçois, humousexual, the blue minkies and the freebutt in brighton. we then got asked to play in london again the other day supporting the unicorns. thanks to upset the rhythm for asking, and to tammy and her sister, rory, sophie, bisketti and tom for coming along and talking to us!
we’ve finished the “i’m missing” album and all the artwork, we just need to get it made up, so that should be available in the next couple of weeks. we have some shows coming up at the end of this month and the start of next month, but i’m not sure of the details yet, so please come back and check!
