We played a gig! It was a highly secretive affair to a handful of mates and some locals, at the Wunderbar in Midsomer Norton.

Thanks go to Design (Simon Barber ex-Chesterf!elds' new band) for headlining, and to The Wunderbar, for allowing us to take over their bar and half-fill it on a Friday night.

There's a video of us playing our forthcoming single "You Held My Heart" here:

http://youtu.be/kuBPbuidI-E

More to follow, and we are playing some more gigs:

Aug 23rd - Bristol
Aug 24th - London
Aug 25th - Brighton
Sept 14th - Nottingham
Oct 17th - Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Oct 18th - Edinburgh
Oct 19th - Glasgow
Oct 20th - Sheffield

After our mini tour last weekend there's quite a few punter vids springing up on Youtube and thereabouts.

Here's my favourite so far:

I've been to a lot of gigs since I discovered there was still an indiepop scene about 6 years ago. They usually range from pretty damn good to absolutely brilliant. The Flatmates tonight were something else. Fucking stunning. Unfortunately I missed them first time around, but I can't imagine they were ever any better back in the 80s. Sometimes the old ones are the best.

They were something else!

Sometimes it works when bands reform, sometimes not. The Flatmates were fantastic last night though. Bold, vivid and joyous. Well done!

Looks like The Flatmates have broken Facebook - Too many fans uploading tour footage?

Sorry, everyone...

*Blows dust off topic*

Hello folks!

Here's a copy of my recent post in the 'looking for gigs' forum:

The Flatmates are playing in Berlin in late September, we're looking to take a van or car over to Calais, and set up a short tour.

Anyone have contacts for promoters in Paris / North-East France / Belgium / Holland / Germany?

Cheers!


Also here's an audience vid from our recent NYC Popfest gig:

Hull would be nice - we're planning some UK gigs for next March so if you know any friendly promoters up there put them onto us!
