12th July @ The Macbeth

As the post title suggests, our next gig is on the 12th July at The Macbeth in Hoxton.  It was intended to be a launch night for our split with Mayors Of Miyazaki but as usual pressing has been delayed so we've had to push the launch back to some other time in the not too distant future............

However, the gig is going ahead as planned, and should be a ruddy corker, we sincerely hope to see you there x

New 7" Split

So yeah, fair play to them, We-Be Records are doing us what can only be called a huge honour by pressing one of our tracks onto a 7 inch wide plate of pure green vinyl.  If you don't know We-Be they're home to These Arms Are Snakes, Lords, Caretaker, Tropics etc etc, basically a rad Bristol based label with a good heart and only the best intentions.

We're doing a split with good friends and long-time gig mates Mayors Of Miyazaki (who's A-side is a ruddy corker by the way) that's going to be 'officially' released on the 12th July at a yet to be defined London venue, via the medium of 'gig'.  Watch this space for info on that but more importantly, check out the We-Be link, they're a hoot!

Gareth from Mayors did the Artwork by the way, take it or leave it, I'm a taker x

Thanks to Sorrell for taking a great live shot of us at our gig at The Macbeth last week, taken with one of those cameras with phone and text messaging capabilities, who'd a thunk it?

Because we're so fucking 'DIY' (no joke, three of us work as set builders/exhibition installers/furniture makers), we've decided to build ourselves a venue in a massive warehouse, why not eh?

As part of the wider alternative DIY community in London (talking music this time) we will be hosting a 14 week programme of gigs and events showcasing some pretty damn good bands.  Come down to some shows, say hello and support the project, it's gonna be a whole new world of chaos!

Unfortunately our gigs in Sheffield and Leeds this weekend have been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, which means we'll also be missing the British Wildlife Alldayer, triple whammy!

We're using the time to record a track for a very exciting split 7" with Mayors of Miyazaki though so it's not all bad.  And we'll be back on it in a couple of weeks with gigs in Rochester and London.  Ave it!

So we're playing an alldayer on Sunday and our driver/van man/guitar rock god Stu has decided we're getting a cab to the venue so that he can drink.  Which of course means we'll all be 'falling in line' and joining him for an afternoon on the Jagerbombs.  Three of us don't have to work on the Monday so I guess it's ok, let's see how it turns out!

But seriously, it should be a good crack, come down if you can we'll cook you a Sunday Roast with a cigarette lighter.  Oh yes it CAN be done!

As you may know we put on our own night every so often to big up the bands we like and our next show is going to be held in our very own gallery/warehouse space in Dalston.  It forms part of a double weekender we're doing with our friends 'Crows', and should be a right good crack.  We also have the mega excellent Nitkowski playing, plus the talented Katie Malco to sing us out.  Nice!

Big thanks to everyone who continues to part with their money and buy our EP at gigs and online, £2 may seem like a small gesture but it all helps us to cover our costs.  Although in all honesty there are plenty of causes in far greater need of a few quid, but hopefully you're the kind of people that like to spread your wealth around!

As promised, pissed ramblings - we went to see our friend Sarah play tonight as part of The Neasden Bees and they were right good!  We got to know Sarah as she used to play in 'It Often Takes A War' who we did a split with.  All sorts of RnR rip offs tonight but I've never seen a band in this vein pull that together to form a sound of their own before.  A great singer, good noises and far better than any similar fare I've seen in my time in London, or beyond, proper mint!

Sarah was visibly upset (was up for a few shots) that it was her first and last gig with the band, and so are we to be honest, she's off to Oz.  She will be greatly missed, get back to Blighty soon! x x x

Welcome to the new Death Pedals blog.  I've been in need of a safe place to rid my drunken ramblings and stop me posting idiotic things on people's Facebook walls, so I figured a band page/blog would be the ideal place to do it: no-one's going to be reading it and therefore I'm far less likely to get myself in the shit!

So yeah, expect to see lots of random babbling, as well as 'serious' updates on what The Pedals are up to in both their public AND private lives, ooooo saucy!

Thanks for having us!
