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

these should be en route in the next few days…Â awesome.Â can’t wait to run the ‘two organs’ piece i’m working on through the wavefolder.
making good progress with my solo record. will probably be six pieces all up.
i’ve just order the above. a plan b model 13 dual timbral gate…Â to fill the glaring VCA type gap in my modular with something interesting.Â can’t wait!Â also picking up an AS multiple to help with making the most of the small number of modulation sources…Â should all be fun stuff.
a big thanks to everyone who came out on wednesday night and made it such a sweet good time.Â extra thanks to matt, pas, byron, noriko and lawrence for playing, will for being a totally great guy to work with, hamish and keiko for running the most comfortable venue to be and play in london, and last but not least, Carina for helping keep shit together, running the merch stall, filming, baking cake and being generally wonderful.
Such a privelege to play to a sold out cafe oto with a good bunch of friends.
I’m just listening back to recordings and will salvage what i can from the sets to share with folks.Â if anyone has their own recordings/pictures etc then drop me an email: email@example.comÂ – Carina was filming on lawrence’s camera, so hopefully we can get some of that up on youtube in the new year when lawrence is back from the amazon!
