Yesterday we played the last festival of the summer, the amazing Butserfest, and I caught some of the adventure in this exclusive Pledge video, including Neil playing drums for dubstep monster Tek-One. The best bit is there’s an entire acoustic performance of new track ‘Train Leaves Tomorrow’ which is going to appear in its studio version on ‘Operation Boombox’. #thankyoupledgers #theboomneededyou Check it out HERE.

MONDAY’S MUSIC. This dubtastic remix of ‘Cost of Living’ by our pals The Skints by The Future Dub Project is doing it for me on this beautiful Monday afternoon. Look out for The Future Dub Project’s remix of ‘Joanna’ dropping on the Operation Boombox mixtape for all you Pledgers! #mondaysmusic

Well now! We’ve had a lot of questions and demands about ‘bringing back the ska’ on the new record. Well, here’s some absolute proof. Trumpets and saxophones instantly make stuff more ska, and a couple of nights ago we added the parping things all over the album. Apart from some accordion(!) this is the last instrumentation to go down on the record meaning we’re very nearly at the mixing stage. We’ll keep in you comms.
