By | October 31, 2015

We’re really excited about playing at Duke of Uke next weekend. We’re supporting the fabulous Corner Laughers, alongside Fun of the Pier and Plastic Jeezus. We don’t get to play south often enough so it’d be lovely to see some of our London friends and fam there. The event starts at 2pm and it’s free entry too! Facebook event page

The Wonky EP: coming 1st June 2015!

By | May 22, 2015

It’s true – we finally recorded our debut EP! We did it in the stunning surroundings of St Mark’s church in Levenshulme and we were joined on drums by the amazing Phil Howley – read more about it and see the photos on our shiny new website.

It is currently being pressed and will be available to buy on CD and download from 1st June. We are doing a very limited run of the CD so if you want one, don’t hang about.

We are officially launching The Wonky EP on Saturday 6th June at the Klondyke in Levenshulme, Manchester. Phil Howley will be joining us once again on drums so it proves to be very special. Hope to see you there.

speakeasy-supperclubI’m ridiculously excited about this event! I’ve put together a very special little combo to play some red hot and filthy songs from the 1920’s. The rest of the line up is pretty swell too and there’ll be some surprises on the night. Supper Club is always a good night out and all the money raised goes to the Solomon Project to feed children in Kenya. COME!

Wonky Face

By | June 8, 2013

Hello! Thought it was about time I posted something, so you know I’m still alive. So here is Wonky Face for your ears:

I recently did a lovely version of this song with ace harpist Katie Brett which I’m hoping you might get to hear sometime.

Lou and Llamas are still beavering away. We should have some recordings to share with you soon. We’re also excited to be performing at the launch of the first ever Levenshulme Food and Drink Frestival on Friday 21st June. Let’s hope this sunshine lasts!
