RUNNERS – Starting Line
Recorded by Ross Halden at
Ghost Town Studios
Mastered by Michael Ward, 2010

We are currently making perspex boxes to house our absolutely beautiful neon lights, crafted by the brilliant and lovely Richard Wheater and Julia Bickerstaff at Neon Workshops – we really can’t thank them enough! We sent Eoin Shea to Wakefield to make a film of the lights being made, so we’ll make a soundtrack for the video and put it up here when it’s ready. There are some sweet photographs of the neon lights being made on the Images page of this blog, and we launch the lights at NIGHT LIGHT LEEDS 2010 on Friday 8th October when we play with Blank Dogs and Spectrals with live visuals by Limn Art Collective at Nation of Shopkeepers.

XFM and the BBC have been playing our first two recorded tracks, Stay Frosty and Starting Line on the radio over the last few weeks, and some nice words have been scribbled about us on blogs such as Pinglewood, who also wrote about us on Pitchfork‘s new collaborative blog, Altered Zones. Closer to home, The Leeds Guide wrote about us in their best new bands feature, and we had a whale of a time taking the stage at 1am for Dave Lynch‘s 20th birthday celebration of Twin Peaks at Temple Works.
