who wants to hear a new red kite track?
well, you're in luck. red kite are heading out into the musical wilderness to play some alt-rock concerts, and to celebrate the fact we will be posting a new track up on the website here for a limited time only.
at midday on friday 12th october, we will post a link here for you to get your lugholes on a new track which will be available to stream until after we finish our show on sunday at proud camden (free entry, so no excuses not to show up).
aren't we nice.
the following thursday we'll be heading into the studio to take part in the lofi dogma project. anyone who has seen us live may be familiar with the track calliope, which we'll be re-working to fit the brief for the project. at the current time of going to press, we have no idea what it will sound like. all we know is it will rather rough and ready, and all the sexier for it.
finishing off our autumnal burst of activity, we'll be playing new venue rattlesnake in angel with the glorious the murder barn in celebration of their e.p. launch, and a royally rambunctious ruckus it will prove to be.
photoshoots are a strange beast. my usual brief of 'try and capture how much i hate having my picture taken, and don't try and make us look cool' can be a tricky one to adhere to. as such, when he decamped to the technicolour hive of artistic activity that is the manor house warehouse complex, we simply said to crack photographer sam folan 'we'll just dick about and you shoot'. the fact that jim rolled up two hours late stinking of booze meant that we had to fire it off in record time, but the results were nonetheless extremely pleasing. we hope you agree.
the album's nearly done.
tom's computer blew up, but now it is fine.
