Gah, if only I hadn't sent the info off for the Tramlines programme already. I'd totally have billed you as Halfpony otherwise....

I got asked this weekend if my band was Lardpony. We do however have a new song which I have unashamedly made sound like Lardpony though.

One of the new songs I've written for Lardpony sounds like August Actually! Maybe we should swap.

We will. It sounds like a mix of Lardpony and 90s indie-rock.

Elie still has it if she wants to buy it back... I don't think it's been put to much use!

I am equally psyched about this btw

I'll lend her a synth if it means a Lardpony reunion gig or two!

I see the mighty reformed Lardpony will be playing in Nottingham on 6 December with the Wave Pictures and August Actually. Cor!

Up Mansfield Road, near the top. About a ten to fifteen minute walk from the city centre.

It's true! We've got an actual gig. We're on twitter now, too: http://twitter.com/lardpony

There are lots more things in the pipeline, too, including changing the website so it doesn't say that we don't exist any more, and recording a load of new songs, and taking a photograph of ourselves that reflects our altered personnel and putting it on the internet.

Band practices have recently been upgraded from "shaky" to "excellent", incidentally. Last night we sounded GREAT! Noxious Gas and all...

...and now all PonyMusik is up on Bandcamp: http://lardpony.bandcamp.com/

Everything on there is free, and I've added new bonus tracks to all of the releases from the terrifying, vast archives of demos and alternate versions that I've been hoarding.

If anyone is thinking about attending this, but isn't quite as keen on paying ten pounds to get in, then please drop me a note as there may be something I can do to help, wink wink, nudge nudge.

Hello!

We finally finished recording our new songs. We'll probably release them next week or this weekend or something.
