First up, we’ve made a new RUNNERS site at Bandcamp, where you can listen to our tunes, buy them (and download others for free!), buy our t-shirts, etc… http://wearerunners.bandcamp.com
Next up is an administration apology to everyone expectantly awaiting the arrival of the next Monthly Marathon – confusion over whose turn it was to mix resulted in none of us making one for September. Ooops… Sorry! Monthly Marathon mixes will be back on track ASAP!
Looking back to the summer (yup, it’s all grey and damp now), Leeds Guide published an article on the Sony/PIAS warehouse fire and its effect on Leeds bands (including us).
We’re ready to move on from that mishap, chin up (etc)… we’ve started to gather a fair stack of new material since we’ve found home at Tranquility Base – hopefully we’ll get an mp3 or two up soon.
Three home town shows and a DJ set to announce…
