How's things? yeah, yeah, I know... aren't we all? tough time of year I guess. What's that? Oh I know! crazy how many people have birthdays this time of year... selfish really, all frugality goes out the window. I guess essentially the idea is that if everyone spends more money then shops stay open, people keep their jobs and then they have money to spend in shops, which then stay open and the owners give more jobs out, which means people can spend more money in bars then the people that work at those bars and shops can fund whatever sideline they have be it artist, musician, dancer, poet, writer, journalist WHATEVER which we consume and it makes us feel like life isn't just one brutal, grinding day after another, we celebrate our lives full of creativity and music, in bars manned by our peers, spending money, celebrating the fact we're surrounded by artists, that make livings from the bars and shops we shop in...
So, anyway I think i subtly masked my intention of persuading you that you should be giving us money
THERE ARE 2 WAYS YOU CAN GIVE US MONEY
One is to go here - http://saunayouth.bandcamp.com and download anything you want that we've put out (bar 2 tapes and a surf song) and 'pay what you like'. To be honest I really thought this wouldn't work AT ALL, but i've been pleasantly surprised that people have been paying. The winner so far is Megan though, Thanks Megan. If it's any incentive to get value for money and show we've really put the effort in I remastered pretty much everything so it's all relatively the same volume and some of the earlier stuff I brightened up a bit as I've learnt a little bit more about recording, etc since then. Interesting no? I also wrote up all the associated relevant information so you can drown in words as well as audio. Wonderful.
The other is to come to this show -
STATIC SHOCK GIG VOL 27 PRESENTS
Once took Rich from Sauna Youth to his parents Ice Cream shop.
Been having a hard time of late with the departure of Reza but the dust is settling and Jen is really improving things no end
Not TORTUGA that band that November Coming Fire did after Gallows got big and they wanted a piece of the action
(It's a) SHAME
FRIDAY JAN 27TH
446 KINGSLAND ROAD
8:00 PM - 5 pounds in
Nearest train: Haggerston / Dalston Junction
And just give us hard cash, preferably before or after we've played but if you want to just throw it at us while we're playing and are confident no-one else will pick it up then go for it.
