November dispatch

Welcome to the beginning of winter. Remember you are not a lizard and celebrate coffee and rosy cheeked women.

We featured on a playlist put together by Pindrop Publicity, check it out here, lots of lovely sounds.

We’ve been invited to take part in ‘Food of Love’, an album of Bard-related songs for the Shakespeare Jubilee festival in April 2016. Our piece is based on ‘I Loathe That I Did Love’, a poem quoted by misery gums himself Hamlet. Also in the pipeline are new songs possibly entitled ‘hey there, my sweet ostinato’ and ‘standards won’t keep you warm at night’.

Only one gig last month, at the Finsbury with Business Lunch, a wild Fall-style groove racket band with a wonderfully demented frontman, check them out. Our next and currently final gig of the year is an acoustic one at Cornerstone Theatre in Didcot on Friday 4th December. Bring sleighbells.

‘Til next time, drone on people

factory remixes and festival shows

Dear readers, summer has come and we are cracking on with finishing off our as-yet untitled debut album, you’ve got to get these things right. We’ve also got a single in the offing, and the aforementioned EP all in the pot, we’ll be sure to keep you posted on forthcoming new recording release vibes. In the meantime enjoy these ace remixes that friends and acquaintances of the band have done of our previous single Factory:

We are getting together to make noise on a weekly basis and have some brand new bangerz to share with you soon. We also have a couple of select live dates in the diary, with a few more in the pipeline:

Saturday 25th July, 3:30pm @ Charlbury Riverside Festival
Saturday 1st August @ Cornerstone Beer Festival, Didcot

Hello the internet

615127_923042804388629_5098674684602105249_o1.jpgIt’s been a while, how’ve you been? We have been busy bees following our appearance at Glastonbury Festival 2014 for BBC Introducing.  Here were are stood next to our crashed rocket in which we arrived at the festival. Too many loop-de-loops, awkward.

Our debut album is close (so close!) to being to be finished after many a session with lovely lovely engineer Richard Neuberg. The album is very excitable but has a deep, cosmic underbelly, kind of like a psychedelic Labrador. Cads that we are, we’ve also been fooling around at SAE Oxford recording a little EP of sensuous new songs including new bang-ah ‘Magpie’ which we’ll also be sneaking out soon. Here are Krazi and Phil contradicting the whole rock-pig studio life cliché by reading attentively. IMG_2768

On April 10th 2015 we did our third sold-out – that’s right, sold out, just sayin’ – performance of our live soundtrack to oldest surviving feature-length animation ‘The Adventures of Prince Achmed’ at Modern Art Oxford. We’re taking bookings for this refined and transporting piece so head straight to our Achmed page if it sounds like a good fit for your venue or event. Did we mention the shows were sold out? They were sold out.

As well as a load of full-on live and festival gigs we’ve also done a few stripped-down affairs for folks like, well, Irregular Folk which have gone swimmingly. If you’re interested in booking Flights of Helios for your event be it club gig, college ball, proposal of marriage, intervention, birth of first child, new employee induction session etc we can tailor our setup to your needs.
