Confirmed gig with Font @ The Bush Hall on Thursday 11th June @ The Bush Hall, 310 Uxbridge Road, London, W12 7LJ. Beautiful venue.


Have been shattered and swamped this last couple of weeks. Rehearsing and tweaking the beats on a daily basis again. A pleasant blur. But the hard work is paying off - we don't struggle in the way we used to!

And I'm listening to more music again (as opposed to just listening to endless mixes of OUR stuff).

More soon, off to Infernal Salon to check out the new Disinfo movie.



Just a quick one to say we had an absolutely great time at Divine Incest on Saturday. A thousand thank-yous to the ever charming FELICITY & DEE . Also have to say thanks to Kaveh from Fonts and the ladies of the Illuminati for putting up with our confused ranting for the evening. Imercia loves you.

So we're currently sorting out gigs @ Bush Hall and Koko. More info as soon as it's all confirmed.

"Brothers and Sisters, come together!"

That's enough for now, got to go and reassemble the toys.



We are over-the-moon to be able to say that the AND NOW album is available @ the iTunes Store! Thanks to Al and the Elementary Productions team for making this happen!




A pretty heavy week. And another one on the way. Much needed amounts of laughter and amusements. The night is young.

We are up to speed and ready to roll. But as always, at the mercy of the external world. So you do your best to observe, just observe, not take it all to heart, not try to solve or resolve. Don't know enough.

Next weekend brings a much needed visit to Divine Incest! We're very excited about this one - because it's a really great night, but also because the sound for the night will be handled by us and Divine Incest (no soundman to get confused by the lack of Les Pauls / big hair / massive drum kits / Marshall stacks etc.). LOL!

"The essence of that period (the 1960's) was that we didn't know what we were running up the flagpole and we weren't even sure who was shooting at it.

"Now everything's controlled. We think we know what we're doing. Someone does a rock album, it's carefully produced to sound a particular way for a particular market. Books are produced in the same way. Magazines have market research to tell them what's what. And so on." Michael Moorcock.

We're never entirely sure what it is we are doing. Sometimes I guess we're simply paying tribute to the music we love (post-punk, shoegaze, electronica, dance music, industrial, pop etc.) But at least our tastes are eclectic.

In May, longtime Mekanoids Lisa and Andy will be jetting into town to help finalize the album dealings. We've made some real progress with the whole post-production thing and we're virtually ready to go with the AND NOW album. Depending on how well it 'does', we're really keen to follow it up with things along the lines of NOT NOW (compiling the best tracks from the various incarnations and collaborations) and a compilation of remixes and the more fun and out there material. We have also been toying with a DVD comp - but that won't be an official release, just something for friends and fiends.

We were given a bootleg recording of the last gig and it's been great to be able to hear what works and what doesn't. It's also been great to hear how much real bass end we've got going on live!

I would like to clarify that we have not signed to a label as such. Elementary Recordings is a collective of people who make stuff with a blatant disregard for what is and isn't considered cool by the established media. Working together with creative types of all persuasions, Elementary is literally for the people by the people. There is NO scene. There are and will continue to be physical, digital and imaginary Elementary releases. But we retain full of control of what is and isn't released and in what form.

We are all looking forward to some nights out with Wrapped in Plastic who are playing @ Monto on Monday 11th May, and the Mekano gig @ Divine Incest on Saturday 16th May. Also hope to see you all @ the next SPC-ECO gig on Friday 8th May.

Things are also shaping up for a couple of Brighton nights!

I'm a very lucky bastard. Sometimes I know it too.
