After the monumental triumph of the first Albion gig in June, it was asked if Epsom would ever see such a great night of live music again. Well, with punks like Go Chi Minh, Wax Age, Scoundrel, Chalet Noir and Tsar Bomba still around the answer was obvious…music lives. We’d like to thank all the bands for playing, Joe Hoyle for taking photographs and Luke Giles who managed the gig and engineered the sound.

Our new EP, Weak Dose, is out now. Physical copies will be available to buy soon. We think it’s the best music we’ve created so far. We hope people who know our music like it and that it attracts new listeners. There’s a lot of great music around at the moment, by wonderful bands who have influenced us. We hope this EP does those influences justice.

Thanks to all who came to what was probably our best gig yet, at the Fighting Cocks in Kingston (23 Dec 2014) – for A Music Blog Yeah’s Christmas bash. Gavin Watson, who curated and organised the sell-out show, kindly allowed us to be involved and after weeks of thinking about the set structure and how we’d do things live we turned up to watch and play.
