Allo, Darlin'

Post by timahall » Wed Mar 25, 2009 15:21

I'm probably a bit late here but isn't that song Emily just lovely? And I fully support the combination of sweet female vocals and ukuleles. Gah, I wish i'd grabbed that WeePOP! EP when I had the chance. Still, I got her christmas one and it's v.pretty.

And the version of I Wanna Be Sedated is gorgeous.

Yup, that's the right band.

Playing as part of a free show at Jamm tomorrow night too.

Oh heavens, it gets poignant with every listen. "Can't control my fingers, can't control my toes"...."hurry hurry hurry". Oh my my, it's love......

thanks very much for the nice words guys. um, just in case you're interested, we're launching our new 7 inch single called Henry Rollins Don't Dance at the Wilmington next Thursday. Camila is putting the record up on the weepop site tomorrow for pre-order. Hopefully you'll like it, it's a bit more upbeat than I wanna be sedated! But there is still one heartbreaker on it. There's three tracks on it, one of which features Terry Edwards of Tindersticks/Gallon Drunk fame. There are still a few tickets, 6 i think, on the we got tickets thingy for the gig with Moofish catfish and moustache.

Also, for the record, we're coming up to Newcastle to play on all dayer thing on the 15th August. We'll be playing in either Glasgow or Edinburgh or possibly both, and then maybe in Sheffield or Manchester after that. If anybody wants us to come and play in their town that's on the way, please let me know. We'll be travelling with both Hexicon and Moustache of Insanity.

Thanks very much
Elizabeth

well typically for me it's completely unorganised at this point, the only confirmed gig is the one on sat the 15th august at the tyne bar in newcastle. so possibly friday night in glasgow, and then sunday night in sheffield. we would normally play in edinburgh because my friend bart from eagleowl puts on shows there, but it's festival time then and it might be a little difficult. so if anyone fancies putting us on in glasgow or sheffield we'd love to do that instead!

According to the internets, yes
internets wrote: Mr Pop from Fortuna Pop Records signed Allo, Darlin' to his indie empire. Allo, Darlin' will be recording their debut album for Fortuna Pop in July and August 2009, again at Soup Studios with Simon Trought.

Gig with LUCKSMITHS was great & so is the 'Henry Rollins...' 7".
What happened to the other singer that was with them at their London Popfest set?
