Anti-social Media

To be honest, we’re not entirely certain how to take the relative success of our most recent gig, and it’s with great delight we can announce we’ve accepted a booking to play in Whittington in September.

In anticipation of the pending record contracts and tour offers, we’ve set up a Facebook page. This is gently ironic given the band was created as a result of a Facebook conversation between Andrew and Andy. We also have a Twitter account, if that’s your thing.

Of course, you can also be anti-social if you choose. We’re not going to pretend every one is in the mood for our blend of blues and relaxed enjoyment. Please do get in touch if you’d like to hire us though. Dave has joined us as resident drummer and we’re very happy to talk to anyone who wants chilled music from chilled musicians!


Great Gig in the Arboretum Bandstand

Thanks to everyone who came to see us in Walsall Arboretum at the Bandstand. It was a great gig and made more fun for all concerned by the two unexpected guests who played and sang with us.

The sun shone, we played blues, and hopefully the afternoon was brighter for it.

We also want to take the opportunity to thank Gary Nicholson (who booked us) and his team of Rangers at Walsall Arboretum. Gary and Dennis opened up the venue for us, hung around to make sure we got off to a good start, then tidied up and put it all back at the end. Everything they did was with good humour and it was great to work with them.

Walsall Arboretum Bandstand – here we come!

Summer’s here, and the time is right for Dancing in the Street. Or maybe Jamming in the Arboretum.

Dischord are down at Walsall Arboretum in the Bandstand from two-ish on Sunday 20th July. We’ll be crafting gentle blues-based accompaniments to your post-prandial strolling, encouraging you to groove to sublime rhythmic invention, and giving you a reason to stay put for a while and listen to music you’d only otherwise encounter in high class lifts.

We’ll be presenting our sonic discourse with the help of invited guests and walk-on minstrels, having a hack at improvising our way round an hour or two. You’re more than welcome to join us.

Sow and Pigs – good for Gigs

We played at the Sow and Pigs in West Bromwich on Saturday night. They’re a brilliant crowd, with some local character! We had Dave joining us for his first gig as our drummer, plenty of blues and the occasional ale to help us on our way.

Next best thing to our name in lights...

We loved playing there, and hope Jason will have us back at some point. Maybe next time we’ll take a microphone with us so we can sing some numbers as well.

Looking back while looking forward

We had a lovely time at The Spark in Lichfield last week, and played a pleasant enough first set.

At the end of the first hour, the audience member left.

Shot from the stage. Hello, Lichfield.

Shot from the stage. Hello, Lichfield.

They closed the venue and we went home.

The up side to this is simple – we didn’t alienate anyone with an early finish, and we got a swift post gig pint in with plenty of time.

Obviously the night before Valentine’s Day isn’t a big night out in Lichfield. The people who had said they might come were unable to.

By comparison, our gig in Kenilworth can now be considered a rousing success. Check out the EP from that night and consider downloading a copy. It’s good for the ears and the soul.

If you want that empty room sensation this coming weekend, we’re at the Sow and Pigs in West Bromwich on Saturday March 1st. We’ve managed to convince a drummer to have pity and play along with us, and there may be guest appearances by other friends of ours. This is the heart and soul of the music – make it up and make it good. We look forward to seeing you there.

Gig in Lichfield at The Spark

We’ve secured a gig at The Spark, Lichfield on February 13th, playing a couple of easy going sets from eight o’clock in the evening. The Facebook events page will give you the exact venue details and so forth if you’d like to come and see us.

We’re really looking forward to it!
