I AM THE BRIDGE


I am the source of the overflow

A torn neck

An effervescent glow

I am the route to the heart of it

I am a feat,

I am a cage

I separate and I connect

B

R

I

D

G

E

I am the Bridge

Don’t think it can go through,

Endless living between the two.

I was born, washed and stripped

With my head nailed to the track

I’m separate

But I connect

B

R

I

D

G

E

I am the Bridge

Human Trolls

We recently had a strange run-in with a very polite and fawning real life internet youtube troll (RLIYTT). It was a fascinating experience which I think one day i'll go into more detail about, at the moment I can't be bothered if i'm honest. However I did want to share with you the fall out of this run-in. Essentially the RLIYTT ended up letting us know that if you're a feminist then you can't be in a punk band...

i'll just let that sit there for a while.

... aaaand, his fellow RLIYTTs have started a campaign to let us know our failings in the punk department and hit us where it hurts most... youtube comments (The last one will be available to buy as a t-shirt asap btw etc)







 Thanks bye!

SHEER MAG

Sean asked us if we'd like to play with SHEER MAG at The Lexington on November the 13th 2015, we said, "Yes, of course".

He put tickets up online and people have been buying them (of course), but now we feel like we need to make sure that those of you who don't know about it should really know that a) it is happening and b) that there are fewer than 50 tickets left and c) it is happening, check out the poster...


Here's the info and link to buy tickets, because you'll need to a buy a ticket if you want to come, ok -

LIVING IN LONDON

"Filmed among the ruins of The Crystal Palace Terraces, Transmitters is a playful and poetic ode to desire". 
Directed, shot and edited by Gary Mcquiggin of Welywyn Garden City, known for his work previously with The PheromoansThe Bomber Jackets and Deerhoof, the film recalls James Broughton's surrealist miniature The Pleasure Garden (1957).
Using a number of the same locations, the band appear, disappear and re-appear amongst and against the modern day remains of the ruins. Mcquiggin ups the 'pleasurable strangeness' of Broughton's original with increasingly splenetic rhythmic cuts and visual non-sequiturs. 
Transmitters continues the tradition of 'the park' as a place of self-reflection and respite from urban hullabaloo, as well as a space for serious transformative experience - as seen and heard in works by artists diverse as The UV Race (Life Park), The Kinks (Village Green Preservation Society), Gary Numan (Down In The Park) and Prince (Paisley Park).  
"Stylish, funny, charming - Transmitters may be a slight film but it is by no means an inconsiderable one" (reworked excerpt from the Pleasure Garden BFI DVD booklet, Jim Cook, 2009)
