Gig prep and film stuff

So, slowly gearing up to the gig at the Cook.  
We are planning on having some t-shirts to sell and so are hurriedly organising that kinda shit.  Luckily we have friends who are kind enough to lend us their help and advice which makes doing things we have no shard of a clue how to do, possible.  
I've just finished up drawing a poster by tracing with my trackpad in photoshop (tad frustrating).  Budget = the shiznet.

A couple of weeks ago we participated in a Film and Media project.  It consisted of us choosing a venue, and playing a live set to be filmed.  After many thoughts about abandoned theatres and that kind of carry-on, we ended up at Sammy's as the theatre we had wanted turned out to be too unsafe apparently.  
After turning up the night before to set up all our stuff, we discovered the bouncy castle games that they have on at Sammy's were still up and people were still playing on them.  They took up nearly every square inch of the place.  Everybody remained calm though, and after all the bouncy little netball girls finished jumping up and down and shit the Sammy's staff did a full on deflation in minutes.
Filming went very smoothly and the Director did a fantastic job of making everything run real sexily.
Two other bands, Thundercub and Brains are also participating and I can't wait to see the finished product.  You can check out the project here:  Off the Cuff.  There are some cool photos and information.  I may post some photos up here at some other time when I don't have to get up at 6 in the morning.  
keep it kinky

Our last gig EVER

We are taking an indefinite sabbatical as a number of us are planning to catch aeroplanes and go to places we haven't been to before. So if you'd like to catch us for the very last time (one or some of us are never coming back due to student loans and inescapable drug debt) this is your chance. Some or none of us may reform under the same or a new guise (cumragtag might find some work?) in our eventual shared location, so keep tuned for updates and travel fail stories.

It will be held at upstairs Cook. Some of you may accidentally let out a wee shriek as I did, but take your rapidly collapsing phallus or anti-phallus and draw circles on it with your finger thinking of the cheap beer, the great space available, and the vicinity to knox pharmacy for that late night pseudoephedrine smash and grab.

We are hopefully recording a live album from it, depending on how drunk we get and how good the set sounds.

We also have supporting the gig:

Thundercub (thunder bolt grizzly cubs)
Mountaineater (sounds like 5 thousand Kevin Costners screaming)
Soulseller (party boys)

Love You
