2010 is not just a good name for a sequel. The second album, provisionally titled “Royal Variety”, is on its way to completion. The first single from it, “Made of Magic” has been mixed by Mark Freegard (of The Breeders fame) and features high-speed car-crash vocals.
The band have also picked up plays from Huw Stephens (In New Music We Trust), Gideon Coe, Steve Lamacq, Don Letts and John Kennedy’s Xposure show along the way. Already in 2010 they have a UK tour announced and are attracting shows in France, Germany and Scandinavia as their unique sounds start to travel across mainland Europe like a reverse Norman migration.
