Thanks to everyone who came out and saw Tenniscoats play across the UK and everyone who made the shows possible…

Saya and Ueno had a grand time and hopefully we can get them back here for more shows next year.  In the meantime, they’ll be joining Tetsuya Umeda at Cafe Oto on the 28th of June and playing together with The Pastels on a short tour in September including a spot at the Moseley Folk Festival.

The Balky Mule

I’m going on tour next week playing drums for The Balky Mule. Should be much fun.  If you haven’t heard it you should check out The Length of the Rail n FatCat.  Its a lovely bunch of songs with some fantastic home-style production – hushed drums, mono-synth and lo-fi sprawl.  i dig it big time so its super fun to be going out and about playing the songs.
